Default Our plans

Mike, if the weather is perfect on Sat we may fly down just for the day. Otherwise we will stay here where it is cool. We are planning on heading home on that Sunday so that will be our last days in the islands.

Then we need to do the "perfect weather" dance.

Default Summer must be over

Because we are flying out tomorrow, Sunday, and heading home. Tom and Bonnie are heading to South Dakota to pickup our camping stuff, then home to TX. Martin and Claudia are headings home to TX. Y'all turn the temperature down!

This a picture from our ocean front deck of the four of us this afternoon.


This a picture of one of the sunsets this week taken from that same deck.



We have had an absolutely beautiful two weeks in the San Juan Islands. We did fly over to Friday Harbor for a day trip. So our summer trip is coming to an end and it is time to fire up the RVs and head for hot TX. Check out our SPOT tracking link below to track our progress.

Default Out of Orcas Island

We did get out this morning about 9am, only because the fog layer stopped over the East Sound Airport. This picture is of Mt. Constitution which lays to the east of the airport.



We climbed to 11.5 and had up to a 15 kt tailwind heading east. The Cascades were awesome which this picture of Mt Baker shows.



We stopped at Cor-de-lane for potty stop, then Lorale just sw of Billings, and then to Mom's house at Miller, SD. That was 1030 nm which is alot longer than we usually do in a day. These RVs sure are great cross country machines. Tomorrow we hope to load the camping stuff and make our way south to the TX heat.
