Now these weren’t just ordinary ducks …… they were 2 of the 15,000 plus ducks sold to fund projects sponsored by the Grants Pass Rotary Club. The ducks all got dumped off the 7th street bridge for a final destination down by the park at the 6th street bridge, and hopefully into the small collection pen in the center of the river. One of our ducks arrived at the winning destination. Not in time to win the grand prize, but it did bring us a 1 night stay at Calahan’s Lodge located on interstate 5, at the top of the Siskiyou Mountains . It just so happens that Mt. Ashland Ski resort in jut 6 miles on up the road from there.
We picked a mid February date to take advantage of this opportunity and were rewarded with a 30” snowfall leading up to our first day of skiing. It was a bit of a challenge the first day because the runs had not been groomed yet and it was a bit foggy. In the flat light much of the terrain was unrecognizable until you were right on top of it. Talk about a work out! After a full day of skiing we went back down to Calahan’s to enjoy the comforts of the lodge. Once in our room we built a fire in the fireplace and enjoyed some Del Rio Merlot with cheese and crackers and relaxed until diner time. At dinner we sat by the windows and enjoyed the full moon shining on the snow. Back at the room it was time to fire up the hot tub and bubble the aches and cares of the day away. A little Anderson’s Champagne helped to finish off a very pleasant evening.
Next morning the weather made a complete turnaround. Seeing the moon the night before had hinted at the possibility of the weather being good. Actually it was Great! Breakfast at the lodge and the back up to Mt. Ashland where the runs were groomed and the skiing was fabulous. It doen’t get much better than that.
Construction has started on the Home Depot in Grants Pass, Oregon. The official ground breaking ceremony took place this morning June 14th, 2011.

I made mention of my River Properties list in another post. This post is discussing my latest project.
I am now publishing a list of REO (Real Estate Owned) also known as Bank owned properties. Yes, a quick search of the internets shows nearly everyone is doing so.
What makes my lists any different?
If you have traveled Rogue River hwy out of Grants Pas headed toward the town of Rogue River you have notice there is quite a facelift occurring. What a difference this will make when completed. Sidewalks, bike lanes, center dividers, turn lanes and lots of shrubs, trees and lighting. This old part of town has looked a bit haggard but not much longer. I believe everyone will benefit from this project.
It is early June and the Grants Pass Saturday Market is in full swing. We headed out early to pick up some fresh foods for the coming week. Large brown eggs (and I mean Large!) from White Hair Ranch, then it is over to Berry Berry Good Produce for some lettuce and onions. I’m getting a bit ahead of myself though…… First stop is always Maria’s Tamales for Pork and Spinach Tamales. Wouldn’t be Saturday without them. After the tamale and stops at our favorite stands numberswiki.com
we move on through the rest of the stands to see what else we may want to add to our bounty.
