Missoula, Montana

Edward has had two weeks of grand adventures, but not much time to write a blog. We spent 13 nights in the American Heritage Campground in Olympia, Washington. We visited Isaac, Allison, Elliot and Emmala every day and Elliot came for three different sleepovers at the camper. It was a grand time of being in the big woods of the Pacific Northwest, visiting family, playing with grandchildren and relaxing. The camper was a center of lots of activities. One night the whole family came for a dinner of crab cakes, watermelon, salads and cornbread. Ted cooked outdoors on the outdoor kitchen, including making cornbread in the Dutch oven.

Today, the camper was packed up and ready to roll by about 8 am, and after saying goodbye and taking a few more pictures, we got on the road. Traffic wasn’t too bad from Olympia to Auburn. The climb up Snoqualmie Pass wasn’t too bad and there weren’t too many traffic or construction delays. But Olympia to Missoula is a long day. We had planned to stop earlier, but had trouble finding a campground with room for us with no reservations.

We finally got set up by about 9 pm, had a delicious salad for supper and settled in for an early evening. There will be more adventures tomorrow.
