2016 Summer Plans

Bought our new TT about a month ago. Trying to find a quick get-a-way for April.

For May we are going to Pioneer Trails in Anacortes, WA a favorite spot of our and close by where we live.

In July we will return to Pioneer Trails for 7 days to escape the war zone of the 4th around our house.

In August we hit the road with our son, daughter-in-law and two youngest grandchildren on August 4th (they have their own TT) to the Redwood Forest in Crescent City CA. The night of the 4th we are just hanging our heads in a Wal-mart parking lot, (my daughter-in-law is not too happy on crossing Wal-Mart camping off her bucket list! LOL We will get an early start on the 5th to the Redwood Forest. We are staying in the Redwoods RV Resort for 4 days then head home. Going home we will travel up the Oregon coast towards Florence. We plan on staying at one of the Thousand Trails Resorts, I forget which one. DUH! We will be there for 3 or 4 days then hit the road home to WA. We will be super busy and plan to visit the aquarium, the dunes, Sea Lion Caves and of course the beach. Fun, fun trip.

It's hard to beat Olympic Nat'l Park in April, if you can catch a break in the constant rainy weather. But "April showers bring May flowers", so if the weather forecast for Olympia is nothing but rain, rain, rain, then head east over the mounains to Wenatchee, Ellensburg or Yakima areas. If that's still too wet, then continue east to the Spokane area. We have friends in Spokane and it's almost guaranteed to be dry as a powder there.

We're a bit older than you, but we're now too old to get by in the summertime without our AC, even in the relatively cool northwest California or southwest Oregon. So if we plan to dry camp in a Wal-Mart parking lot, then we'll haul our 5,000-watt electric-start generator with us so we can have AC during sleeping hours. I'm too weak to start a rope-pull generator, so our Honda generator has a battery and electric starter.

We do want to get to the East side of the State. Plans were to get east side then to Yellowstone. But not this year. I never thought about the AC, I won't mention that to my daughter-in-law. LOL I'm wondering if we should throw the generator in the truck to be safe. Good food for thought. Happy camping SmokeyWren. Maybe we will make it to Texas sometime. God Bless.
