National Parks & Headwaters 2012 travel blog




We spent the night in the Wal-mart parking lot in Puyallup (Pew-wallop). Was not too restful because some kids were drag racing in the parking lot. (At least that is what it sounded like while we were trying to sleep.) Headed out to Mount Rainier NP and stopped at the Longmire ranger station to look around and get some information. On our way back to the motor home, to go to our campsite, we noticed that we had a flat. YIKES. We could not figure out why, no cell service, and so we headed back to the ranger station to see if we could get some help. The rangers would not come out to help us pump the tire up, even with our own compressor, so we spent an hour on the telephone with AAA only to discover that they were absolutely no help. GRRRRR. Being that we were too far away to return the way we came, we found someone who could bring us out a tire. Janice was so done with the tire issue, that she had them bring out 4 new tires. We now have 6 new tires. We managed to get to our campsite by 4:45, have dinner, go to the ranger program at 9:00 and to sleep by 10:00. Still no cell service.
