As I travelled from Conestoga Quarters RV Park in Port Angeles WA to Copalis Beach Resort in Copalis Beach WA on Wednesday, August 9, 2017, I encountered another prolonged road closure on Pacific Coast Scenic Bywayalong Lake Crescent WA. After I had been waiting for 15-20 minutes, several cars approached me in the oncoming lane. Thinking the traffic was moving, I fired the engine and moved a couple hundred yards. Delayed again, engine off, fire up the Sudoku. Apparently, several drivers had become disgusted with the delay and abandoned the wait. I, and many others, had the sole alternative of circling Olympic National Park in a clockwise direction, which would take an additional two hours. Several “restless, rebellious revolutionary revulsion reversal” episodes occurred over the time I was waiting. The del... read more

We took the early morning train to arrive at Washington D.C. And we went straight to The White House after checking in at Harrington Hotel. The buildings in the capital city were classic and walking around i figured that this city has maximum number of people in suites than anywhere else. We hung out near the pool area near state capitol building and then spent some time visiting the Canadian Embassy. I came to know that it is the only embassy so close to the white house. The Canadian US relations have undergone various reforms and it is amazing how they co- exist . Though the countries have loads of similarities, yet there as some aspects where Canada seams to be adapting faster. for example: foreign relations, since there is already so much diversity Canada accepts ... read more

The best part about this day was that i got my reading library card made at the world largest library. The United States Capitol, atop Capitol Hill at the eastern end of theNational Mall in Washington, D.C., is the seat of the United States Congress, the legislative branch of the U.S. federal government. Though not at the geographic center of the Federal District, the Capitol is the origin point at which the the District's four quadrants meet, and around which the city was laid out. The Library of Congress is the research library that officially serves theUnited States Congress, but which is the de facto national library of the United States. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) is the United States' official memorial to the Holocaust. Adjacent to the National Mall inWashington, D.C., the USHMM ... read more

George: On 27th June we drive out of the Stockton KOA and we go back to Sacramento Fire Station to give back the money they gave us and to see if the police report is ready and it's not. We stop off at Clearlake for lunch and I walk down the pontoon. We arrive at Fort Bragg at about 6 or 7, we have burgers and toast marshmallows. The next day in the morning we go down to the beach, there are lots of pretty houses on the walk down. NEWS REPORT....... Family of Four Find Squeaky Sand. By G. S.

Leaving San Francisco felt a lot like the beginning of our planned trip around the USA. Although we have been here a couple of weeks now, picking up the vehicle that should be ours until November and heading north it seemed to us that we were really on our way. There is still a need for us to properly equip ourselves for the journey. We will do that progressively over the next couple of weeks. The decision not to hire a camper or RV meant that we needed to consider the various options. Buses? After South America we had had just about enough of buses and, anyway, buses tend to go from town to town and we would miss the bits we really want to see. Trains? Our one Amtrak experience from Houston to El Paso ... read more

Today was going to be our last in Portland before we headed towards Seattle so we got up and had brekkie and pack the bags while the girls watch a DVD. We soon headed off to the Portland Rose Gardens which was not too far from home. When we got there we were blown away by how much different rose variety’s we saw. Jake read some info and there were over Eight thousand roses there. We took a few photos and walked around smelling the different flowers and it was huge. The gardens were well looked after and there was only one full time Gardner. We soon headed back to the car and went down the road to the park for the girls to have a play. The girls had a nice time in the park ... read more
