Crossing Over...

We're about 450 miles (750ish kilometers) from John's Dad's in Penticton, B.C. We'll reach his place by the end of the week. We're traveling casually northward through Washington via Yakima and will cross the U.S./Canada border at Osoyoos/Oroville.

We've had to have a brake job done on the truck and had to get new tires on The Jazz over the past week. We're going to run out of money before we get to Canada if this keeps up!!!! Then what kind of snowbird life will we have?!?!

Last evening, we pulled into a funky little Washington county campground along the Columbia River. The sound of freight trains and Highway 14 traffic serenaded us  throughout the evening and night. Ahhh...wonderful transportation! But at least we were in the forest!

Gingee and me last evening at our campground along the Columbia River (Washington).
John and Gingee.

    1. Helene, I tried to access your blog but it shows a blank page. Is something wrong with it?
