Apr 25, 2017 - Staging in Burlington, WA

4-25-17 Staging in Burlington, WA Today is the day to move the trailer to a campground to get a charge on, wastewater dumped, and fresh water filled. Getting a shower is also on the list. I made reservations for the Burlington KOA and drove out there a little early. When I got that at 10AM the lady said I was too early and would have to come back at 2PM. I backed the rig out and took it into Burlington to cool my heels for four hours. I used to the time to make some minor repairs on the rig, have lunch, the return to the KOA promptly at...

Hi everyone, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It has been an exciting 3 months. Now, where did I leave off.

Sep 7, 2015 - Bringing you up to date

July 15, 2015 Almost 10 and we are on the road again. We have been camped at the Thousand Trails by the Skagit Casino in Bow, Washington for the past 14 days. We had power and water but no sewer so it was time to dump. We are headed to Leavenworth for our FMCA outing and decided to go a day early and stay at the TT park in Concrete for 1 night . While here I worked part of the last 2 weeks, went to friends for the 4th and watched fireworks with them. I had a dentist appt and got a temporary bridge for the one that broke and also saw my PA...

Oct 19, 2014 - Spokane, WA to Burlington, WA

10-19-14 Spokane to Burlington,WA Today there was a short drive to Burlington, WA where the RV is stored. The trip planner says it’s 345 miles and will take five or six hours, but it’s a gorgeous fall day and the roads are excellent. There is no urgency, but I would like to get the RV out of storage and set up before dark. Before leaving, I visited Spokane falls got some pictures. Spokane really is a pretty little town. I realized I had forgotten my Kindle in my hotel room (it was in the bed), so went by there to pick it up on the way out...

Jul 15, 2014 - Long day

Day 6 (Keith) It was a really long ride today. Expect the update tomorrow. As for me I'm off to bed. Today started off with a quick breakfast at the Heaven restaurant in Port Angeles giving us energy for what lay ahead. Starting down the 101 west we quickly turned off and hit highway 112. WOW what a highway! I see why greypeace was so fixed on keeping this road the way it is. The road twisted and turned until we had a chance to see the ocean. Stoping for a quick breather and to get some picture on this spooky deserted beach we hopped back...

Jul 9, 2014 - Seattle & Washington Coast

Arrived in Burlington, WA on Saturday July 5. A real treat for us was the fire works that they displayed that evening at 10:00. I thought 10:00 was rather late, but come to find out that it wasn't dark enough to do it earlier. This tells you how far north we are. The next day we drove the Washington coastline; visiting small towns along the way as well as all the beaches that were covered in rocks. Monday we toured the Boeing Plant. We were told this was a must see and it really proved to be well worth the visit. There were no photos...

Apr 23, 2014 - Heading North Again

4-22 thru 4-23-14 Heading North Today (4-22) we began preparations in earnest to head back to Alaska for the summer. Julie needed to complete her packing to fly to Anchorage. She has a lot of stuff going back and she packed 2 large suitcases. The limit per bag (on Alaska Airlines for state residents) is 50 pounds each. One bag was 49.4 pounds the other 47.6 pounds. She likes to cut it close. Julie’ flight was to leave around 9:30PM so to be sure we got to SEATAC on time, we left the RV at Tulalip after noon. We drove to South Center near...

Oct 22, 2012 - Burlington WA

October 21, 2012 Up early in order to take the ferry to San Juan Island from Anacortes at 9:30. The ride was a little over an hour and we arrived with the sunshine! San Juan is 55 square miles, the largest of the 20 island archipelago and known as the Pig War Island. In 1872, San Juan became an undisputed part of the US following the “pig war” dispute settlement with Great Britain. (San Juan is the last American soil occupied by Great Britain.) The island is very rural with cedars on the peripheries. We opted not to visit the 19 acre...

Oct 22, 2012 - Burlington WA

October 22, 2012 Very cold! Rick, Connie and I had work to do this morning and Bob was happy to read the NYT on line. A little before noon we took Wiggy for a walk along the Swinomish Channel. Stopped at Cathy and Jerry’s, good friends of the Bolducs and fellow Rotarian, who live on the channel. Rick and Connie house sat for their dog so we picked up Wiggy’s “herding” companion. Nice walk! Afterwards we went to the La Conner Brewery for lunch. Jerry joined us. Just shortly after we ordered, Cathy and her friend, Sandy who were purportedly...

Oct 12, 2012 - Back Into The Rain Forest

I left sunny Idaho about 10:00 am and headed north-west. By mid-afternoon I'd crossed cloudy Oregon and by the time I made it to Washington state, it had started to rain. I was headed for the dealership where I bought the trailer as they still have some warranty work to do on it, and I convinced them that I was going right by their door, so they may as well do it on Saturday (plus a few other things that have cropped up). Anyway, the mistake I made was to travel too close to Seattle to pick up the 205 highway which connects to the I-5 and...

Sep 16, 2012 - Day 79

When we parked last night, our neighbor was a Good Sam Member of the Cariboo Sams Club. They were having their monthly get together with some other clubs, a total of 28 units. He gave us some very good tips about driving back to the lower 48 and RVing, some of which we will use and others we will put aside until needed. We left Cache Creek, BC this morning, driving south-westerly towards Vancouver on Trans-Canada 1. For most of the drive, we were paralleling the Fraser River and driving in the Fraser Valley. One of the tips that we were...

May 25, 2012 - Day 4

Today I spent my time in Burlington, Washington at the RV dealership where I bought the trailer. It seems well made but it is a complicated system and it needed some fixing while the warranty is still on. I won't bore you with the things that they fixed, but here's how my day evolved: I was scheduled in the shop at 8:00 am (confirmed yesterday afternoon when I moved onto their lot for the night). At 9:00 no one had arrived to pick up the trailer so I walked up to the service area and they said, "Oh you're here. You should have told us!" I...
