Port Angeles, WA

We drove up 101 along the Hood Canal yesterday. I always like this drive although it is twisty with lots of narrow sections and inclines. We stopped at an RV repair place as the water heater had quit functioning on Thursday night. It would fire but then went out instantly. He looked at it and said, "It is lighting but it doesn't know it is lit". He bent the temperature sensor a little so it was closer to the flame and everything worked again and the best part was, "no charge"!

We pulled into the Port Angeles Walmart along with six other rigs and had a nice quiet night. Norma added up all our purchases for the past 5 1/2 months and surprisingly, we are almost at our $1,500 limit! We did not realize we bought all that much but all added together, it was about $1,400. The new laser printer and BluRay player helped. We are way over on our booze limit but we will do as we always do, fess up to everything and offer to dump some out. All the bottles are partly empty so they always give us a break. We are obviously not bringing it in for resale and they tend to treat RV's more like "homes" than vehicles. Hopefully this year will be the same.

We are in the ferry lineup now. It is 7:30 and the boat loads at 8:00 We should be at Brooks and Linda's by noon.


  1. It it those quick fixes and a 'no charge' that restores ones faith in humanity.

    Good luck with Customs and the crossing.

  2. I can't believe you're at this point! I was starting to think you'd never get home at the rate you were going. :)

  3. Sounds like it's a lot easier to enter Canada than Mexico! Of course, it helps if you are Canadian, I suppose. Glad you made it OK.

  4. I like the road up Hood Canal too. As you say, it winds around but it it pretty.
