    Hey DL, Len and Steve we can have a real get together. LOL I am pulling our of here tomorrow morning and heading to Washington. I will be working as a volunteer at North Cascade National Park from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Plan on touring Olympic, Mt Raineer, Leavenworth, and half a dozen other places on my days off.

    Sounds good. Washington has great sights to see. It's nice and cool down by the Ocean in the summer.

    We leave the 22nd from Oly to Banff for a wee in a condo and will be going over the North Cascade hyway and spending a night in Winthrop then on to the Park. See if you can get three days to do the Olympic park that gives enough time to get around the whole thing and see most. There is a lot more to see than just the park.

    LEN...if you haven't been to Banff or over the North Cascades, you are in for a beautiful trip! Lake Louise is pretty awesome. In Winthrop I have stayed at the state park and at SilverlineResort. State park was nice but very hectic. Silverline was a nice park albeit a little pricey. They have a nice dock on the lake...saw guys pulling out some mighty fine trout! I would recommend having reservations at either place. There are several parks on the west side...Steelhead Park and Razer Park in Rockport, Concrete KOA etc.

    Depending on where you cross the border, you might pass right through our little burgh!

    Have a great trip!

    In another life I was state surveyor and traveled and did the high order surveys on all of Wa so I think I have been on all of Wa hiways. And you are right the north cascades hiway is really beutiful. The wife wants to spend a day in Winthrop on our way to the condo. Rivers Bend RV camp ground is where we stay in Twisp when in that area nice clean long pull throughs and the river. I have been to Banff before but it has been many moons ago. Crossing the border on the way back will be through Lynden and an over night in Bellingham.

    I had to go pick up a trailer from Sunny Brook in Indiana. I left Thursday afternoon. When I passed an RV dealer in West VA, I wished I had taken my camera. That guy had an All American Sport (made by Forest River) completly covered with a great BIG blue tarp. Of course it was raining, so enough said.

    Re: Where are ya'll

    We are back home now from our trip thru Al, MS, LA, NM, TX ,AZ. put over 4K miles on the MH and 2k worth of gas which is getting higher everyday it's seem .We also had no problems. As for as the weather goes it was very windy in AZ and TX. We had 9-10 " of snow when we left AZ. I loved all the states and everyone we met was very nice .We stayed in Gulf Port La. the last night of the trip and went to the casino and of course I lost, but my brother won about 3k so his trip was paid for. We are now planning our next trip out next month to Destin Fla, we will be there for a week enjoying the warmer weather and the kids and grand kids. We are just having a blast now :laugh: :laugh: :bleh: :bleh: :cool:

    Re: Where are ya'll

    Diesel just hit 4.39 here.

    I heard on my trip the other night that there is a "freeze" on gas prices between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Has anyone else heard this?

    Re: Where are ya'll

    Big No. Don't count on it. It would only happen with the other party in power. The last time they froze gas prices we had super shortages and long lines at the pump because of the freeze. The bad guys name was Peanut Farmer.
    We need to open up our off shores for drilling and oh by the way maybe Alaska. The engine to our economy is oil. We can't survive if they keep saying NO to new refineries, oil wells, nuclear power plants, and liquidfication of coal. What do they propose: Pie in the sky and nothing else. Alternatives? We don't have anything that runs on alternatives. Try baking a cake with alternatives or turn on your house lights with alternatives. Wind power? Not in Ted Kennedy's back yard. Ethanol sure isn't the answer unless you like high FOOD prices. :eek: ;)
