Feb 1, 2020 - Getting Brandy

January 20, 2020 January 20th was Martin Luther King Day. That’s the day we drove on I-90 across Snoqualmie Pass, eventually crossed the Columbia River at Vantage, and pulled into a farmyard just south of Quincy, WA. Early November last year I told Mary Anne that I was ready for another doggy. We then looked online at pet adoption sites. I talked with the Mini-Schnauzer rescue person in Woodland, Washington. That’s where we adopted Nick in January 2009. Roz, at that rescue center, said she didn’t have any rescue dogs but was thinking of...

Jul 15, 2019 - Quincy WA – Crescent Bar RV Resort

Made it to one of my favorite Thousand Trails campgrounds here in Quincy. Not much is planned for this stop. It was Hallmark’s annual Ornament Premiere weekend, so we headed up to Wenatchee to visit the closest Hallmark store. I needed to get my ornaments, most of which belong to series and I didn’t want to miss getting them. Well, wouldn’t you know it, the store closed 4 months earlier. That’s what happens when you search the Internet for stores and stuff. It was the first time in 23 years that I’ve missed Ornament Premiere weekend. It was...

Retired at Last!

Aug 18, 2018 - Quincy WA – Crescent Bar RV Resort

Drove down to Quincy through the smoke and fog of Washington state. Yesterday was the worst day the city of Seattle has ever had when it comes to air quality. That’s because all of the fires in Washington, Oregon and British Columbia. It all seems to be settling over northwest Washington. There is a constant haze in the air. We’re on the Columbia River now in a great Thousand Trails RV park and the smoke is definitely spoiling the view. Our second day here was better smoke-wise, but I wish it would go away. The smell of smoke in the air is...

Retired at Last!

Sep 20, 2017 - Quincy

We left Idaho and took a detour to see Cooley Dam. It is the largest hydropower producer in the U.S. and one of the largest concrete structures in the world. It contains enough concrete to build a highway from Seattle to Miami. Driving along the Columbia was beautiful. Our RV park was next to the Columbia River. Quincy was a nice little town that has been growing rapidly. Eight computer companies have moved storage facilities there because electricity and land are cheap. The area is known for its fruit orchards. Amazing fruit!

Jun 11, 2015 - Quincy, WA

Thu, 11 Jun: Out of the forest... At last! Today was a road day. We awoke early without setting an alarm. With both of us fighting a cold the coughing, sneezing, wheezing, and general complaining was sufficent to get us going. We'd checked tire pressure, oil levels, etc. yesterday, so this morning was mostly a matter of going thru our check lists and getting ready for the road. The roads in the Chehalis Thousand Trails park are narrow and the multitude of trees often too low to ensure easy passage for our tall coach. Hence, we elected to...

Jul 10, 2014 - Soap Lake, WA & Grand Coulee Dam

Off sightseeing again. We drove to Soap Lake in Ephrata. Soap Lake is known for its mystical healing qualities. Each year, thousands of people visit the "City of Mineral Waters." The water is composed of 16 minerals not found anywhere else in the world but Baden, Germany. Many people cover themselves in mud from the lake and set in the sun to let it dry, then rinse off. People say these minerals alleviate the pain of arthritis and skin conditions. Jim said there isn't enough mud in the lake to ease all his pains! We stopped at Dry Falls,...

Jul 9, 2014 - The Alpine Village of Leavenworth, WA

We spent the day at Leavenworth, Washington. It is at the base of the Cascade Mountains near the western end of the Wenatchee Valley. Established in 1890 it prospered as a logging and fruit packing center. By the 60's the community leaders promoted it as a tourist destination and remodeled it to look like a Bavarian Village, right down to the alpine-inspired architecture and flower filled window boxes and hanging baskets. We had a delicious late lunch at King Ludwig's German Restaurant. Jim had German sausage, German potato salad and red...

Westward Ho! 2014

Jul 8, 2014 - Quincy, Washington

Drove 293 miles to Quincy, Washington today. We are staying at Thousand Trails Crescent Bar Resort. We have a nice site overlooking the Columbia River. We pulled out of the campground at Port Angeles this morning at 51 degrees and after we crossed the Cascade Mountains the temperature started to rise. When we pulled into the campground this afternoon around 2:30 it was already 97 degrees. Time to put jackets away and take the blankets off the bed. I'm sure we will miss the cool weather.

Aug 21, 2013 - North Cascades Loop Cont.

From TT Crescent Bar RV Resort A long road trip today. We went over 400 miles but we hadn’t planned to do that. We got a later start because we were tired from yesterday but decided it best to see the other side of the scenic loop. It was pretty much the same scenery we see at the campground. Big bare mountains but the Columbia River did flow beside it. We passed a lot of orchards that were being harvested, hayfields and horse ranches. Not very exciting but we kept going. Finally we reached Lake Chelan which can be up to 1,500 feet deep and...

Aug 20, 2013 - North Cascades Loop

From TT Crescent Bar RV Resort Took a road trip today. I pulled out our book on Scenic Drives in America and found one north of where we are. It is a 400 mile loop that goes over to Seattle up to the Canadian Border and back down the Columbia River. We have decided to break it up into two trips. Today we went west and our first stop was in Wenatchee at the Ohme Gardens which is about 24 miles from our campground. In 1929 an orchardist bought 9 acres on a rocky mountain to make a retreat. In 1930 he married and they planned to build a house...

Aug 18, 2013 - Seattle

From TT Crescent Bar RV Resort Today was a road trip to Seattle. We hadn’t planned on going there but since we were only about 160 miles east of it, we decided to go just in case we don’t get this way again. It was a good decision! The drive on I-90 west was very beautiful. We made our first stop pretty quickly as we had climbed a mountain and were overlooking the other side of the water that the campground sits on. Continuing on to Seattle, we climbed and climbed and then went down for over half an hour. Mountains in front and on sides...
