Sep 27, 2012 - Port Angeles to Shelton
We drove from Port Angeles to Shelton, a distance of 94 miles. We are now 1973 miles into our journey. Port Angeles is our Northern most destination, and now we turn south for the second leg of our journey. We have another 1553 miles to travel for our first month of 'wintering' in Casa Grande, Arizona. We will stay here in Shelton for about a week, rest up, and see a few of the sites in the area. Please stay tuned! Mike and NancyJump to full entry
May 28, 2012 - On to the next casino!
Monday, the 28th about 4:00 pm. Just checked in to Little Creek Casino about 5 miles south of Shelton, Washington. I left the motorcycle races about a half an hour ago because it was cloudy, cold and spitting rain. They were half way through the last race of the weekend - a 6 hour endurance race, but I couldn't endure it any longer! Now that I'm at the casino however (about 15 miles south of the track) the sun's out and the perpetual west wind has died down! All in all it was great racing. These guys (some as old as me) were hitting 160...Jump to full entry
May 27, 2012 - Motorcycle Races
OK, I'm not sure what date this is, but it's Sunday, so I think it's May 28th. I'm at a new racetrack near Shelton, Washington. I got here yesterday around 3:00 pm after lugging the trailer from Burlington through Seattle and Tacoma. Here it was, Saturday about noon and for 50 miles before Seattle and after Tacoma, it was like a 12 lane parking lot! I can't imagine what rush hour is like around here. It didn't help that I missed the stupid Express Lanes sign in Seattle. In the 20 or 30 times I've been down I5, I've caught the express lane...Jump to full entry
Sep 7, 2011 - Talk about a Rough Road
Today is moving day. After spending 2 weeks here in Blaine, we are going to go south and west of Seattle to the Olympic Peninsula. We are going about 196 miles to a State campground along the eastern coast of Olympic Peninsula. We can’t make reservations; it is first come first serve. We think that we shouldn’t have too much trouble getting a site now that Labor Day is over. We have enjoyed our stay here, but both of us feel it is time to move on. It has been so nice not to be moving every few days, but it looks like we will be staying 2-4...Jump to full entry
Jul 3, 2008 - July 3-July 12 Visited Family in Shelton Wa.
Arrived Shelton Wa. about 6:30, at my sister Jean and John's house. They had a real nice spot for us to park our trailer with a beautiful view of the water(with seals). We were greeted by my older sister Jan running up the driveway flapping her arms all over the place in excitement followed by Jean (my youngest sister). A few min later another sister Sue showed up with their camping trailer and parked right next to us. She was greeted by me running up the drive flapping my arms. Oh it was so nice to see the family again. We are going to do...Jump to full entry
Aug 19, 2006 - Shelton, Washington
At Olympia I picked up US 101 which goes around the Olympic Peninsula and down the Pacific coast to California. I made a few stops along the way, including Shelton to pay a quick visit to the Mason County Historical Museum and the visitor center in front of the Post Office where there is a restored logging train. I stopped at a pretty scenic view point to have lunch and then continued north to Sequim (pronounced "Skwim") to spend the night at Rainbow's End RV Park. It's a good thing I called them to make reservations because I got the last...Jump to full entry
