Jul 2, 2009 - Seattle & Pikes Fish Market

We are off this morning for Seattle,WA. We have been here several times before. Our friends moved here in 1995. We have been up to visit quite a few times, each time we come they always plan something different for us to do. But for some reason or another we have never been to Pikes Fish Market. I have watched on TV the show about the fish market. The way they carry on and the throwing of the fish, so this trip I wanted to get this in. So today it's just about the Fish Market and all that it entails. The drive down is very uneventful...

Jul 1, 2009 - MT BAKER

After a wonderful breakfast that Karen prepared for us, we are off. We are spending the day visiting Mt.Baker. The route up to Mt.Baker, you know we always go round about ways to get where we are going. We love looking at people's gardens and what is growing in the area. They have the best looking farm land, I have ever seen. Our first stop is at Nooksack Falls. The woods are covered with ferns and rocks and ground are covered in moss. When the moss covers the trees, it is an awesome sight. I wish that I had sound on this, the sound of...

Jun 30, 2009 - Chuckanut Drive & Blackberries

Tuesday morning we are off for more adventures. We will be traveling on Chuckanut Drive, this is on the ocean side or west side of town. You drive along side of the ocean (bay) for 30 or so miles. The homes on the water are beautiful. You can imagine what these homes sell for if they ever go on the market. There are several neat gift shops and galleries on this road too. Blackberries grow abundantly here. They are every where you look. If they grew like this at home you could make a fortune picking and selling blackberries. We are going...

Jun 29, 2009 - Having Dinner With The Bluejays

Monday morning June 29th, the weather is almost perfect. The sun is shining, temperature is just right and not much wind. What else can you ask for when you are with friends and having a wonderful time. Having recouped from the drive over from Kalispell, we go for a drive around town to catch up on what has changed since we were here in 2005. We have a wonderful lunch on the waterfront. The food was delicious. We go and check fares for a ferry trip to the San Juan Islands and a whale watching tour. Amtrak has a great train trip into...

Jun 29, 2009 - Western Washington

On Tuesday, June 23rd we left Spokane and headed to Fall City and the Tall Chief RV Resort. The resort is located just outside of Kirkland and Seattle and is just beautiful! Seaweed had a marvelous time cruising the park in his harness on his leash. Amazing what that cat will do to spend some time outside...and he just loves the fans that marvel over him walking on a leash (he looks at them like, "Of course I'm adorable...worship me!"). On Wednesday we drove to Kirkland and spent the day at my Uncle Jim and Aunt Shirley's home. It was...

May 29, 2009 - HOLY CANADA

So I made it to the US! I left Fairbanks on Memorial Day in the afternoon and drove through to Haines Junction in Canada before sleeping. On the 26th I woke up and drove to somewhere a couple hours past Watson Lake Canada, but eventually had to stop to wait for a gas station to open. And more driving on the 27th, from where ever I was past Watson Lake to Prince George... and again on the 28th I drove from Prince George to Bellingham. All in all over 2200 miles! Both borders were surprisingly accommodating and fast, and now I'm in the...

Mar 26, 2009 - A brief trip wrap up for this year

This will be the last entry for this years journey around the US. As in the past this really is one big beautiful place to live and travel in. We met some of the nicest folks as we traveled this year and we hope to visit with them again in the future. You really do meet some of the nicest people in the RV'ing life style. We picked up a pet, a little kitten, as we left the Miami area and she lucked out. The kids refer to her as "sucker" to honor the adults who always find room for little strays. Cyn really likes her as she sits in her lap as...

Dec 6, 2008 - First Night Boondocking at Wallmart

Starting from Vancouver we made a short hop across the border and picked up groceries at Bellingham Costco and then made our way over to the Walmart for our very first Boondocking experience. It was very convenient and we shared the back end of the Wallmart parking lot with about 20 other units. Got up early next morning waited for McDonalds to open for coffee and breakfast, picked up a fising licence at Wallmart along with some other necessities. Thanks Wallmart we appreciated the convenience.

Nov 15, 2008 - Bellingham, Washington

We arrived in Bellingham October 26, 2008. We have mixed feelings about how we like it. We like it on a clear non/rainy day but on a rainy day we don't like it so much! We like the fact that we are only 12 miles from Canada. As of today, we have been to Canada twice. By the way, Vancouver, BC will host the 2010 Winter Olympics! Enjoy our pictures. Thanks, Janet, Chad, and Haley

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...
