We haven't had Internet coverage for over 2 weeks... AT&T is NOT good on the West Coast of Oregon or for that matter the West Coast! Unless you are in a BIG city or on the Interstate system you can not count on coverage. You just don't realize how dependant you become to the connection to the outside world. Not only for blogging but for looking up the many things you need and want to know when you travel. So that is why I haven't been around or over to visit my many blogging friends & I am sticking to that! I will try to catch you up on all the wonderful things we have seen & done while I have good service here in at Tall Chief RV Resort.
We are now in Fall City Washington and only 11 days away from entering Canada which is the beginning of our real journey up to Alaska. We have traveled up the west coast of Oregon and visited Mount Rainier & Mount St. Helen since I blogged last. What beautiful Mountains they both were and how devastating the story of Mount St. Helen. Also there was a ton of snow at both mountains... I think we will not see summer again til we get back to Florida. While in Fall City we will be visiting Seattle and surrounding areas... Do you have any suggestions as good places to visit or eat? We were here last about 10 years ago and so some ideas would be great.
Thanks for coming by to visit and please stick with me as I may be missing from time to time due to my not so great Internet in areas... I am sure in Canada & Alaska we will be limited. So I will check in when I can.
I wanted to share with you how important it is to be careful when maneuvering out in the rain or on muddy wet roads... On our last day in Seaside Oregon I was walking the dog after a rain storm. As I was trying to get into the RV I either slipped or tripped on the wet ground and fell into Tassie's wheel cutting my eye really bad as it hit the lug nut on her HUGE tires. I was so lucky that I didn't get hurt worst then I did but all I ended up with is a badly cut eye just above the eye socket and a beautiful shiner... It didn't need stitches but did need to derma-glue to close it up. Since it was travel day and we were only going about 100 miles I opted to wait til we got where we were going to go to the hospital. The people at the hospital in Centralia, Wa. were very nice and really took great care of me quickly. Here's looking at ya!
