May 12, 2014 - Short Hop to Stanwood

Vern and Garnet Hunt, Linda’s parents, would be so proud of us on this trip. They loved there Dodge truck with Beaver camper….”The Camp Out Inn.” After Vern passed away, we bought the truck from Garnet and she threw in the camper as a bonus. Ed just wanted a tent that he could stand up in but Ed became a camper convert immediately. They would be so happy that we are taking this trip! Today, our first day, was a short hop from Tahuya, Washington to "John and Coleen's RV Park" in Stanwood. Coleen is Linda's sister! This is where we saw our...

Feb 10, 2014 - Visit to Stanwood

This afternoon, we headed North towards Stanwood.

I spoke for a few minutes to remind them of what we are to do in the Legion. Nancy and I then headed back to Redmond for the night and will...

Sep 19, 2008 - Stanwood, WA - Warm Beach Camps

(Ron Writing) We usually get off to a slow start on Friday mornings and this was no exception. Elena made omelettes and cornbread for breakfast. Then we took a walk to look around the campground area. We were the only ones here last night and we never heard any traffic on the little one-lane gravel road past the campground. We could hear the sound of rushing water and this morning we found a creek just a little south of our campsite. We continued south on the mountain loop road (Forest Road 20). It turns to the west and ends up at the town...
