This is just a quick one…We did this little four day run out to Forks to take in the local drag races held at the city airport.
These are 1/8th mile vs the standard 1/4 mile. The length of the runway only allows that distance so there’s enough room to decelerate to a safe speed before the end.
Anyway we stayed at the RV 101 Park with in a mile of the strip. It’s a nice place that has been taken over by new owners. It was good when we stayed with the old owners, but you could tell, after many years, they were ready to retire.
These images are mostly starting line catches.
Did catch my friend Travis Hitt (Hittman) pulling the wheels at the 1 – 2 shift.
Next stop Troutdale, OR

Spent about 4 days here at Pioneer trails RV Park.. We were with about 6-8 other rigs from the Everett/Lynnwood area. That’s an okay way to do an outing now and then, but I think we like the independence of doing what we want, when and where. But have to say it was fun.
The park it self is very nice…quite large and some sites are privately owned but are all well maintained. Because of the Oak Harbor Naval Air Field and the local Refineries there were quite a few enlisted personal and transient workers that travel and live in their RV. But then again all really nice people and fun to chat with and hear how that kind if life feels.

Both going and coming home we to a car ferry.

Dined with this unsavory tyrant.

Well I’ve been sort of ignoring this and need to get caught up.
We went down to Gig Harbor RV Park last March to get more used to the motorhome, so this being an hour and a half drive, it was the first time on a freeway for us in this almost 40 foot bus. All I can say is it drives great, comfortable, and I have to use cruise control to keep it at the speed limit.
We spent, I think, 3 days there and just walked around exploring the water front.
As far as the park, it’s a ex KOA Park by the looks of the buildings and now has new owners. They are doing a lot of work and it really shows. Being on a hill side and having terraced sites is a little different than we have experienced in the past. but they are large sites and easy to navigate. In the upper area are some long term campers, looked like some are workers that travel from one industrial job to another, welders, pipe fitters, etc.
There we are at the top of the heap.
Along the walk into town. Looks to be an old net shed, now shop.
This guy has not been used in a while.
This was at the turn around point of a 4 mile walk.
Oh yes, and of course we had to sample a great Bloody Mary before heading back to camp.
Next stop, Anacortes, WA.

Well, here we are on our fourth outing with the, new to us, motor home and I’m just now posting the what happened on the second outing…I will get caught up before too long.
Feb.14th 2015, Fort Flagler State Park on Marrowstone Island, WA. This is a really nice, very level RV Camp. Although we did not know in advance that the water had been shut off for winter, so it was a good thing we had loaded up the motor home with a 100 gallons of fresh water. We did have power and sewer however.
As you can see by the muddy looking home, the winter grime on the roads getting here was bad!
Sun rise early one morning.
Meet Mr. Knot Head.
I don’t think the fog ever lifted on this day.
This guy had his eye on Bugz.
Bugz guarding the camp.
Next stop Gig Harbor WA.
See Ya then.
Now that I’ve totally accepted retirement, and the fact that we changed from a travel trailer to a Motor Home for our RV travels, and there are going to be many, We invite you along to share the ride and our adventures.
First stop will be the last one we did with the trailer.
Long Beach, WA… Andersons RV Park, http://andersensrv.com/ that is a few miles North of town. It’s a simple park that’s like an open gravel field with a row of sites down each side, but nice and clean and well managed.
We were in site…
Took a little side trip to Seaside OR one day.
And another side trip to the very north end of the Long Beach Peninsula. A little walk down to the beach.
Here’s a few from a visit to the North Head lighthouse.
And the same day to Cape Disappointment Lighthouse.
Our last evening…
Until next time………………
Been doing the PT to Anacortes commute for a few weeks now. I pass this seen every Tuesday morning at about 7:15 AM. Most days it not worth stopping, but this morning after getting up and seeing all the stars out at home I sort of knew this is what I would see. I shot this same seen two years ago, but at a different time of the year when the sun was to the right of the frame. Enjoy…
