Heck of a great trip, four of us as I remember. You, Mark, Me and #4 is a mental blank. For context for the rest, we left Medford and drove north up I-5 getting to the Canadian Boarder a bit before mid-night and I was EXHAUSTED from driving. Think an accident looking for a place to happen.
Found a small RV park (US side) and pulled in and 'lights out for everyone' until about 0500 and off we go again. Hit the boarder .... four guys ... no booze (all the duty frees were long closed when we got to that part of Washington) and God did the Boarder Cops ever toss that motor home. Including the 'Toad' behind.
The found my 'stash' of Shreck movies and a couple of other vanilla DVD's. I'm sure they were really disappointed; this should have been a good score!
Parked the RV at a 'dry camp ground' (one water spigot and that was that) for the duration. (Fronting right on the bay/lake!) Glad all my 'tanks' were fully topped off and 'Gennie' was running like a clock for extra power and charge the house light Bat's. Didn't hurt to have two 75 foot hoses and a 'water thief' to attach and fill up the fresh water tank every day. Hot showers consume a lot of water, but God did they feel good. Propane was not an issue as I had 16 gallons in the main tank and a 7.5 bottle as a back up. Which was good as most MH have a very small hot water heater and it takes its sweet time to heat up cold water ....
Only one's there so would hook up the 'grey water' dump hose and run it off into the trees ..... not supposed to do that but there are choices to be made. And what the hell, save for a bit of soap its all just clean water.
Good times, Good times.

Everyone had a 'rotating job' while we were there. Cooks helper (me the cook, save for lunch sandwiches - no idea why - but I hate making those damned things
). Two on dish washing detail, the other two playing cards or tieing flees.
Couple of fellows into 'town,' where ever that was, for extra supplies for the small BBQ, and no one ever actually hit a liqueur store. Think a six pack of Canadian Beer was as close as it got.
