In the last few months, we have add several new members to our park. Unfortunately, Covid kept us from welcoming them properly so I am trying to play catch-up.

Please give a Big SKP Welcome to:

Larry and Marie Heath, Lot #60, are full timers having given up their stick house in California. They have 2 children, 6 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren. Marie loves to do bead work.

Larry spent 47 years as an engineer and Marie 20 years as the manager of a bowling center. Larry worked overseas in Saudi Arabia for 5 years. As an engineer, he participated in the building of a city. It was very exciting seeing it all come together and they would like to go back and see what it looks like today.

They have traveled around the World three times…every time, they stop at their favorite little jewelry store to pick up a few bargain trinkets. RVing isn’t new to this couple. They started camping in a rented camper in the early 60’s. Their favorite travel destination is Laguna Beach in California.

Ken and Shirley Smedley, Lot #9, just accepted their lot. It will be their home base. They have been married for 30 years and have 3 children, 9 grandchildren and a precious new great grandchild between them.

Ken retired as a Navy contractor and Shirley retired from the banking field. Ken also served on the City Council in Fillmore, CA. The couple loves RVing, especially boondocking. They spend time in Quartzsite, AZ during the winter and enjoy seeing the country all year long. Shirley describes herself as a wandering Gypsy at heart.

Shirley loves to knit and crochet and wants to get her sewing machine set up to do some quilting. Ken expressed an interest in learning to play pickle ball and they both want to include mushroom hunting in their future travels. They love our beautiful park and appreciate the “feel of Home” they found here.

    Congratulations new TVites. Deb and I have been patiently crawling up the AWL for a year, getting close to double digits and watching your progress. We have visited Timber Valley three time and hope to return soon. Marie, Deb is looking forward to meeting you and sharing some beading time. We have about 3 years before we get our lot and have already started purging our belonging so we can fit into a 30 footer. Home basing in Timber Valley will be like coming home for us as my great grand father settled in Drain after the civil war and I was born in Oakland (CA, haha). For us relocating from New Mexico to Oregon won’t be much of a shock as we lived in Poulsbo, WA for 7 years. We’ll see you all sometime this summer and hope to shake your hand and maybe share a hug.
