Here we are at Beachwood Resort on Birch Bay WA.  This is a training run to see what we might have missed in our preparations, like a spoon rest and an outdoor stove to grill on if the fire danger is high.  I also put up a pix of the kamp kitchen in the back of the van.  We picked a great time to go--it's mixed snow and rain, but we slept warm and dry, despite 35F degrees and wind.

Test Run

Getting ready to go--replacing safety chains, checking the wheel bearings, making sure all the lights work, charging the onboard battery, checking the furnace and refrigerator for operation, initial clean-up inside and out, stocking the shelves, learning how to operate the lift and do the setup. This only took about two days.  We will be doing a test run today to get in training for the real thing. K

Reynolds Adventure

So here we are, trying to get this crazy adventure started!  We have our travel trailer, and lots of "stuff"  to get packed.  We will leave the last week of March, and drive to Salt Lake City via Yakima to try to see Ken's cousin Myra, and then on to Richland to see my brother David and his family there.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate and be spring-like, not extended winter!
