Blog Status Update

I'll use this to notify you as I get various entries caught up - maybe later even some video's uploaded?

OK - we've been back from this trip for a couple of years now, so thought it was about time I cleaned this Status Update a bit (it is the first thing folks see when they open the blog after all!)

There are a lot of entries here, about one for each day we were on the trip. Use the Table of Contents Option on the right to either start at the beginning or jump to a page you're interested in (I tried to list the highlights in the title).

We usually stopped at two or three different sights per day and progressed clockwise around the USA, starting near Seattle WA. So if you're looking for things on the West Coast (for example), they would be in the last 1/4 of the entries.

What's left? Not much, so if you're tired of reading this, I certainly can understand. Maybe for my own sake if no one elses, I do have some video's for the second half of the trip (since St. Petersburg, FL). Maybe it's late, but I'd still like to get that done. Unfortunately my laptop is too old & slow to edit anything other than VGA video's, and by the second half of the trip I was mostly using my MPEG4 camera for videos - so if I ever get a new laptop - I'll have about 20 years worth of video's to edit! (Not just the RV trip of course). Ah well, that's life in the fast lane I suppose... (Or slow lane if you get tired of promises that always seem to be a little behind...)

Enjoy the Trip!

Welcome home ( and to the rv park you're hiding in to get things done...) Hope the April weather finds you happier than our late March snow. I don't remember a snow that late in the season at sea level in the almost 27 years I've lived in this area. Certainly not that much snow so late! Monday, the last day in March, the clouds parted just enough for a glimpse of the cascades. They were just covered in snow, almost more than they had been in winter, down to the lower elevations, too. A beautiful, chilling sight.
Maybe you should put the blog entries in book form and call it "Travels with Mom" or something...

Well... So far April has been pretty cold. I did hear its supposed to get up to 65 Saturday, I guess we'll have to wait and see. When Vivian and I came up the coast when she moved up here we stayed at a B& B in Ferndale. She had gotten food poisoning in Redding and really didn't feel well. We ate at the restaurant in that large Victorian mostly blue bldg on the corner downtown and I really liked the food. Vivian couldn't really enjoy it, unfortunately. Maybe next time we're down that way we'll check the cheese in Lottie. The west coast is really beautiful, isn't it? Que

Nice snowy pix of the Quinault rain forest. I think your pix of Ruby beach are lovely, especially the second one. somehow I like that one better.

I finally got around to reading the last weeks of your biog (I had skipped them until the photos were posted). Looks like I've got to do some more traveling and do the Oregon and Washington coasts! Thanks for all your late nights blogging --I have enjoyed being a fly on the wall of your RV! I would love to do a trip like this someday. your's was an inspiration.

Of course, if you make it out for next years reunion, you can slip up the OR coast a bit!
