Thanks, ProfDan! This has been such a tough year for fires. We just got back from a beach camping trip close the the San Francisco Bay Area and the smoke found us. We would have gone home, but the air quality was even worse there. The end of the trip made it worth the effort though. Of course, itís such a minor inconvenience for us compared to those who have lost homes. Take care and happy camping!

We lived north of 20 near the coast for over 30 years. I rate the drive from I5 over to Winthrop as one of the most beautiful drives I've done. I've driven it in an RV, a car, and on my motorcycle and never tired of the spectacular views. Doing the whole Cascade loop is great. https://www.cascadeloop.com/


There's a similar loop in BC that is very similar except some sections might be kinda tight for a big rig. You'll have to wait for the borders to open.

astrnmrtom, thanks for the rec on Canadaís version. If they ever let us back in the country I think weíll have to try it. :-)

I agree on the beauty of the cascade loop! This is our first time to do the whole loop from start to finish and it was worth it. My favorite stop was Anacortes, which is just a great little town.

And I forgot to ask -- weren't those wild blackberries amazing? We have made several trips to the Northwest, specifically targeting blackberry season. They grow like weeds, everywhere.

Just don't eat too many at once. Don't ask how I know this.
