We’re closing in on 3 months for our stay in the Northwest. It started on the Oregon coast in Florence back in mid-November, took us to Portland for a short visit with cousins Sue and Larry (where we also visited with an early season blizzard), then up to Thanksgiving with the family at Julie and Glenn’s in Kent, Washington, from there to the Olympic Peninsula for 2 months. On the last day of January, after many snowy and freezing days, and lots of warm and beautiful ones too, we packed it up and spent the day on ferries and roads moving up to brother Jimmy’s property on Orcas Island in Puget Sound. We’re having a great time here, in spite of the mishap with electrical service. Amazon.com did a great job of finding us great prices on replacement appliances and shipping them to us for free, and we’re back up to full strength. And thanks to Peter for his help with the installation of a new 50 amp electrical service that we can safely plug into, he’s our hero!
We plan to stay through the President’s Day weekend, then we’re off back to the mainland to begin our migration south. We plan to spend the month of April in the LA area to visit with family prior to our drive east for the remainder of the year. And here is a map of our planned itinerary to get there, for those of you who might wonder where we will be passing through, and when that will be. Remember, this is the PLAN, no guarantees!
Why are you camping in San Jose when you can park your RV in front of our house in San Carlos? Spend the night with the Louies. Check on your avocado plants.
We would LOVE to camp out at your curb, but we’re going to be there for 8 nights, and it’s a matter of utilities and all. Plus, the town constable will frequently have issues with a camper on a curb for more than about 2 nights or so. Can we get together for dinner one night? We have scheduled our annual physicals with our doctors (Wed. 3/9) and Warren has decided to gift himself a colonoscopy on his birthday, Mon 3/14. So we’re pretty open on the evenings of the 8,9,10,11,12. Let us know!
Happy Valentine’s Day, you two! We didn’t manage to get together again while you were up our way, did we?!! Bummer. Your blog is great though, because we feel much more in touch and up on what is happening in your lives. We may not communicate often…but we think of you and pray for you often. Please keep those updates coming.
Lot’s of love, Linda and Dan
