Apr 12, 2014 - Gathering the clan-part 2

4-11-14 Tulalip, WA Today was a fairly laid back and do nothing sort of day while we awaited the gathering of the rest of the clan (in the pacific northwest area). Bob found a place to get breakfast this morning. “Buzz in Steakhouse and Cocktails” had a sign saying “serving breakfast” so we “buzzed” on in. This place boost two happy hours! Actually, Julie thought the food wasn’t bad. Even so, looks like Julie gets to keep her job of finding places for us to eat. Kim was arriving on the plane from Seattle in the early afternoon and all the...

Apr 10, 2014 - Ellensburg, WA to Tulalip, WA

4-10-14 Ellensburg, WA to Tulalip Resort and Casino (Marysville, WA) We both sleep very well last night in spite of the wind. Guess we were tired from our very busy last few days. We both got some business done this morning. Julie did some laundry and took care of some business for her dad. I completed the applications for my summer job in Anchorage for the summer (sigh). We enjoyed a very nice juice made with apples and carrots. We have been eating a lot of apples (thanks Nancy and Larry). I haven’t located Julie’s cider stash yet, but...

Jan 2, 2013 - 2000 km of blacktop

02 - 06 January, 2013 Christmas has come and gone, leaving warm memories of good times with family and friends. The upside of our originally planned December 1st departure date to the south being delayed somewhat was that we were able to spend the holidays with Erin, Ryan and Mel. On January 2nd we made the 3pm Schwartz Bay ferry from Victoria to Vancouver to start a whole new chapter in our travel adventures. Even by Turner standards we are LATE!!! After about a 30 minute “inspection” at the border (where we donated 2 mandarins to the US...

Apr 17, 2011 - Airplanes and softball

4-17-11 The Museum of Flight and Softball The usual morning routine. It was pouring rain. After coffee, I went to breakfast at the McDonalds next to the Tulalip Casino. Turns out there is free WiFi there. Gary called and said we should meet at his house around 11 AM to go to the Museum of Flight at Boeing field in Seattle. Joe has a softball game later today as well. By the time we hit the road for Seattle, the rain had stopped and the sun had come out. It was turning out to be a fine day. I have been to the Museum of Flight several times...

Apr 16, 2011 - Another rain day

4-16-11 Up at 6AM and installed at my table at Starbucks by 6:45. Did the usual online business then back to the RV for homemade bacon and eggs. Talked to Julie on the phone who reports it's sunny and 45 degrees in Anchorage but feels warmer. It’s raining and 45 degrees in Tulalip but feels colder. Today was pack and plan day. I need to decide what goes to Alaska and what stays in the RV. I also got out the Milepost and other sources to plan a route back. I plan to head directly north into British Columbia to the Cassiar Hwy then pick up...

Apr 15, 2011 - Taking care of business

4-15-11 Got up and went to coffee early at my favorite Starbucks near I-5 in Marysville. Checked e-mail, updated this journal, and started looking for places to store the RV for about 6 months. I have a lot of housekeeping things to do today. It’s not all fun and games on the road. I had phone numbers and plans to run down a few leads but first breakfast at the Casino buffet. I plan to eat about a day’s worth of food and I made a pretty good accounting of myself in that pursuit. After breakfast, I started making phone calls and making...

Apr 14, 2011 - Camped in Tulalip

11-14-11 Tulalip, WA Awoke at 5 AM but didn’t want to get up yet so I just turned on the heat and went back to bed. It was mid forties temperature wise but feels colder. I finally rolled out of bed at 7AM and was delighted to discover that you could catch a WiFi signal from the Home Depot near the Wal Mart here. I checked email, located a few campgrounds, updated the journal then ventured out to unhook the truck and explore the area a bit. I found the Tulalip Casino just down the street with a nice parking area for RVs that allows dry...

Apr 13, 2011 - Into Washington state

4-13-11 Into Washington Since it will be a long day, I was up, hooked up, and rolling by 7:30AM. There was more mountain climbing into Oregon. At Siskiyou Pass (4400’ ASL) there was snow coming down and sticking. Many trucks were parked along the road. This pass is the highest point on I-5 according to a sign. Left the snow behind near Ashland, OR but there was rain off and on and would continue this way for most of the day through Oregon. Must be in the “Pacific Northwest.” Stopped for gas in Central Point, OR and paid only $3.80 a gallon!...

Dec 1, 2010 - Woodburn, OR - Tulalip, WA

The skies have cleared somewhat this morning, but it is by no means sunny. We depart the RV park and drive a few miles on I-5 to go over to Target & Costco. We park the motorhome in the parking lot and drive the truck to an exit a few miles down the road so we can go to the New Balance store to get some runners for Evan. They have the width of shoe he needs, so we have one very happy teenager! When the shoe fits properly, we can see smiles! The strip mall the store is in seems very high class; they have valet parking! We check out some of...

Oct 16, 2010 - Departure Day

Well, the day has finally arrived.. departure day. It has been a hectic week with the boys writing a couple of tests so they can stay ahead of the game, getting organized and some truck troubles. The truck has been fixed, thanks to the shop at Steve's work and we are ready to go. Just getting things organized, making sure everything has been loaded up, last minute laundry and off we go. Hudson, our lab, has been anxiously pacing the deck all day, ever since the motor home left it's usual spot beside the house. He knows something is up and...
