Apr 24, 2017 - Visits in the Seattle area

4-24-17 All around the Seattle area The last few days have been pretty busy. We are trying to get family visits in and get the truck and toy hauler ready to head up the highway to Alaska. Seems that the four plus days we had scheduled was not enough to get all of the visiting in that we would have liked. I guess we will just have to return and spend a month here. We did manage to visit nephews John, Joe and Erica, and brother Gary. We picked up brother-in-law Spence H. from the airport the same time Julie got on the plane for Anchorage....

Apr 21, 2017 - Spokane to Tulalip Casino

4-21-17 Spokane to Tulalip Casino The day started out a bit chilly. Seems someone let the propane run out and, as the laws of nature dictate, you run out at night when you need the furnace to run. Julie has a strange power of knowing when the propane is running out. She asked the night before how the propane is holding up. I said, “don’t worry about it, I’ve got this”. I have a dual tank system on the trailer which should make it so you never run out of propane…….if you monitor the tanks. Long story short, I was out and about at 6AM looking...

Dec 29, 2016 - Eventful, crap

And off we go, kind of. Hot tub guy showed up to winterize the tub, check. Hooked car dolly up to load car, up the ramps and a god awful sound happened as we tore the front air dam and sundry other parts. Crap we are committed now, so back car off ramp to finish tearing stuff off, out comes the reciprocating saw to cut some other things off, felt like a Nascar pit crew guy, good to load now, straps on and away we go, still on time. Halfway to Departure Bay ferry a rig pigs 1 ton truck goes blasting by us and throws a rock into our...

Aug 4, 2016 - Full Day

Good Morning, we started our day with a buffet breakfast at the Casino, then baton downed the hatches and headed off to get groceries for the week. Hello Costco and Safeway! The good thing about getting on the highway and your on holiday mode, when your tired of driving, you stop and find a place for the rest of the day and night. We found an RV site just off the 28 in a place called Ephrata Wa. It was quite full, but we got one and it was a good call because we were hot and tired. 31 deg c , and yes thank goodness we had air...

Sep 12, 2015 - Back in the Lower 48!

What a difference a day makes! Such a big difference between the hills of the Cassiar and then the farmer fields and rivers of the Yellowhead Highway to the sage brush and bare rock cliffs of the high desert of BC. The geology and topography is completely different. And it has gotten a lot warmer! We went from snow flurries in Whitehorse, to cool rain, and now we were ready to dig the shorts back out. We have gone from reaching for the hoodies to reaching for the AC knob on the truck! I had forgotten this part when we first drove it up over...

Oct 25, 2014 - Rain and more Rain

And onto the boat we go. Uneventful inspections as expected but had to play the where are going game with the BSA. 3 hour cruise thru the islands with a leisurely stop at Friday harbor and into Anacortes we go. Off to Tulalip casino we go for tonite, no gambling tho as it is still raining like crazy. All systems are working as advertised so that is good, couple of early shots for your perusal. For the really keen individuals see if you can identify the car parked beside our rig. I had never heard of this type beore but it was a real beaut...

Oct 23, 2014 - Flying Heritage Collection, Paine Field, WA

Marysville, WA 10-22 thru 23-14 On Wednesday, we hung out in the RV at the Tulalip Casino in Marysville. We enjoyed the rain and didn’t do much of anything until we all got together at Joe and Erica’s new home in Mountlake Terrace for pizza and conversation and made plans for the next few days. Thursday morning, I set out to visit with brother Gary and see the sites. The first order of business was breakfast at the 112th Street Diner. We decided to visit Paine Field to look at the airplanes. There are plenty, Boeing has a plant here and...

Dec 21, 2013 - Tulalip Casino

Had a comfy sleep last nite, windy and cold with sideways rain for sure. Good idea to check this ferry out its almost half price compared to BC ferry or the Coho, well worth the effort. Casino for tonight is only about 60km away so a short hop. Breezed thru Customs and then on to Tulalip for the night. Met a cool guy working the Sydney end of the ferry, ex RAF imagine in Victoria area. traffic heavy but straight forward, lots of RV parking behind casino with a very good Buffet to boot, great way to finish another day. Poured rain all night...

Sep 28, 2013 - 2nd District Conference

As expected, the rain and wind arrived. Part of the drive was like monsoon season -- very wet. The Post in Marysville is small. They bought a 100 year old building and have spent the last couple of years remodeling it. It looks very nice and apparently the community is very proud of their efforts. It was a little small for this conference, but they made it work. It faces out on the main line of the BNSF railway between Seattle and Canada, so I got to be distracted by the trains going by, including the coal trains from Montana and the oil...

Oct 19, 2012 - Day 10 - Tulalip Casino

Made a wet 60 mile trip back south as far as the Tulalip Casino where we will have dinner and spend the night. We are parked out back in the RV parking area. Tomorrow morning we will fuel up and head back to Lake Pleasant. Monday Arlyene starts her radiation treatments. Seven weeks, five days a week so we won't be going much of anywhere. Actually, come to think of it, we are closer to the treatment center here than we are in Bothell. Hmmmmmm. I am not much tempted by the Casino, I hate losing money, but the Cabelas next door is another...
