Oct 26, 2008 - Vancouver to Bellingham

Traveling back to Bellingham was actually fun. It was cold out but the car was warm and we got to talk and talk with our friends John and Peg. The boarder crossing was quick even through there were quite a few cars. There was not real hold up there. We traveled down I-5, exited at Ferndale and they drove us home. It was really nice to be back to our own house, kitties and wonderful bed. We have never slept on so many hard beds in our life and settling into our nice pillow top mattress and drifting off to sleep with 3 kitties wanting lots of...

Oct 12, 2008 - Bellingham, WA

This report comes to you from the US. Coming over the border was not as easy as we expected. We were asked the usual questions, where are we going, for how long and why. Next where do we live in Canada, do we own a house............(do we lie or tell the truth) ummmmmm No........ Then they wondered why we didn't have a permanent residence in Canada. The key question by the border guard was do we own a house in Canada. We were asked to pull our coach over to the side and go into the Immigration Office. More questions about when, where, and...

Sep 20, 2008 - We're baaaaaaack!!

. Beginning our short travel day back into the US, we departed Hope with a morning low temperature of 57 degrees and cloudy skies. Nothing changed much until our noon arrival in Bellingham, WA, and RAIN. The temperature dropped into the low 50’s and a steady rainfall continued throughout the afternoon and into the evening. Well, we are back in Washington after all. Immediately following breakfast we left our last Canadian park for the 78-mile drive to Bellingham. We cleaned out a few leftover produce items not knowing for sure what was and...

Sep 13, 2008 - Tomorrow we fly to Spain

Here we are in Bellingham getting ready to head to Cadiz Spain. Soon we will be on a plane and on our way. We are now pretty much packed and we weighed the packs and each came in at 31 1/2 pounds. Nice. Considering that we needed to pack for 85+ weather to 30- weather (Spain to Mongolia). You will be able to email us through this site. The next time I write should be from Spain - Cadiz - once I find an internet connection.

Aug 26, 2008 - Bellingham

Well we are back in the states or the lower 48 as they say up north. This seems to be a nice town that sits on Bellingham Bay which then leads out to the Pacific Ocean. We decided to stay here in Bellingham for a few days to regroup, do a little laundry and maybe clean the rig. While we are here we did a little sightseeing down the coast line and stopped in a place that had a Japenese Garden on desplay.

Aug 24, 2008 - South through Cache Creek

We started heading south through Cache creek and down through Fraser Canyon, what a ride. The road was paved and that was a relief, but it was narrow, hilly and lots of bends. Oh and throw in about 6 tunnels, but you couldn't beat the views. Cache Creek has been called the Arizona of Canada because it is dry and it's summers can get in the 90's and the winters just in the 20s. We are back in the USA again and you could tell right away - the prices of things much lower.

Aug 22, 2008 - Bellingham Washington

We drove to 100 Mile House to see and say good bye to our friends but they were not home. They wanted us to call them at 5pm and meet for supper but it was 1030 am and Cheryl was talking all morning about her sister so we decided to keep going. Got down to the border and the mountains we climbed and the mountain we went down for 17 kilometers was something. This is roughly 10 miles at 8% and 7% declines. There were signs warning truck drivers and showing the decline at a rest stop. There are run offs in case your brakes give out and at a...

Aug 8, 2008 - Bellingham

Today we said what I would think would be our last goodbys to Charlie & Deanna(till we get back to Texas) and then drove 70 miles north to Bellingham, Wa. where we will be staying at the Bellingham RV Park for 1 week. There is a lot to do in the area, we will use this as a base camp where we hope to go to Vancouver, BC for a day, an Orca whale watch 9-5, a day trip to Baker Mountain and whatever else we can fit into the week. So the updates won't be daily but I'll try and catch up whenever possible. After we got here today went for...

Aug 1, 2008 - Bellingham, WA

Yesterday we took the RV to maintenance and they found the problem with the levelers. I have a bad left rear solenoid. Not a big problem but we have to get a part shipped in. We will hang around her until about next Monday or Tuesday. In the mean time we have paired up with the tail gunner from the next tour and are having a great time telling lies about our respective tours. You know, the bear we say was bigger, the fish i caught was bigger, etc. Tom and Kay traveled with us from Oregon before the trip and we spent a couple of week with...

Back in the USA

May 26, 2008 - May 26th we are now in Washington

We drove through the Kootenai National Forest which was just beautiful. Again, water running everywhere. We left Hwy 20 for a mile or so and found a little logging road where we parked the trailer. We had supper and took a walk up the road. Only saw some deer but was a nice walk. The next morning as I was drinking coffee, I looked out the window by the table and there were three deer ambling along eating. One of the does walked right toward the trailer so I grabbed the camera and started shooting through the window. They continued browsing...

Bellingham, Washington Hey! Made it out of the house and ready to hook up within twenty minutes of our scheduled departure! Feels so good being on the road again. Traffic for a short distance through Portland was slow, but no problems all the way up, and driving through Seattle was a breeze. Whew! Northern Washington is very pretty. Rained on and off all day, but got a little walk in this evening when the sun came out. People always ask what the best part of our trips is. For me, it is the walks we take together, and the wildlife we see...

May 6, 2008 - Final Alaska trip preparations in Bellingham, WA

Our latest travel day across Washington State began with a temperature in the mid 40’s and ended up at about 54 degrees after our Bellingham arrival during the early afternoon. It started out cloudy this morning, became somewhat misty as we passed through Olympia, Tacoma, and Seattle, and mostly cleared up by late afternoon to early evening. We were up bright and early for our drive from Hoodsport to Bellingham, 195 miles distant. Gail again had a great breakfast ready for us…we had better not start expecting this every day! Filled with...
