|Sat 07 morning & it is our first "non sunny" morning. The sun came & went throughout the day,it started sprinkling & is 58 degrees so Fall is here.
The hot water heater quit, the radio quit so it wouldn't be a proper trip unless something went kaput!
Last night on the road we spent at Columbia Riverfront RV Park. Can see the Columbia River from the site.
Sunday Oct. 08 we are up to overcast,light rain & 53 degrees for the last leg home.
We stopped at Scatter Creek Rest Stop to dump our tanks and only have 75 miles to get to Seattle so we are about 3 hours from home.
Well make that about 6 hours!! At noon we had a blow out just south of Seattle. Passenger inside rear. Lucky we have Good Sam & had a quick & easy pull off. Exit 142A Federal Way. I am really getting to dislike Seattle. We were back on the road by 3pm with 2 new tires & a nice large bill in USA dollars.
Next stop Sumas for gas & home by 6:20.
We put 3,342 miles on this trip & spent $1650.69 in fuel which averages 8.2 mi./gal
We were on the road 37 days spending $5161.11 (plus the tires)so daily costs $139.49
Not bad when that is lodging, fuel, food & entertainment for 2.
