Jerry and Sharon Work  24108 Redwood Highway  Kerby, OR 97531  My wife and I recently purchased a 78 Royale to replace our four year full timing "rolling condo" diesel pusher. After the four years of full timing we purchased and are restoring the 1907 Masonic Temple building in historic Kerby, OR, about 26 miles SW of Grants Pass, OR, on US-199 The Redwood Highway. My studio and workshop is on the first floor of the building (I build fine furniture) and our living quarters are on the second floor. The Redwood Highway connects US-101 at Crescent City, CA, with the I-5 at Grants Pass, OR. Many consider this drive through the Redwood National Park and the Smith River canyon one of the most scenic in the NW. Our little near ghost town of Kerby is alive with artists and craftspeople. Unique wood work abounds. One of our neighbors is a major burl supplier and another builds rustic furniture for lodges and log homes across America so this is an interesting place for people interested in furniture making and wood art. The Oregon Caves National Monument is a short 30 minutes away.
We have parking space for at least one guest GMC and there are near by camp grounds for a larger group. While we do not have ideal working space, just a level gravel spot, there are nearby mechanical facilities to effect most repairs locally. We can lend moral support, hot coffee, a cold beer or two, limited tools and hopefully good company to help GMC’ers in need or who just want to stop by to say "hi".
