just to close this little tour, we realized we need a few more things done which was one of the reasons for the trip, plus our fridge must need to be flipped again cause it quit, getting to be a yearly event. Is this a sign of the end of our fridge?
Friday we drove 31a over to new denver and 6 down to Castlegar, what I feel is some of the best roads in Canada. But we did it in pouring rain this time so not much to share. Spent the night in Castlegar RV PK. Today we drove up to Rossland but ended up giving up on the weather and headed home.

California's calling!!!
So off we go tomorrow morning!
This year we're using our old car as the tug.
Pretty excited, kinda nervous,
New motor and a bunch of changes as well with about 5 hrs on it.
Been watching the weather CLOSE, looks pretty good.
No big storms in the forecast,with very little presipatation.
Spokane,Portland, Grants Pass, Cresent City and down the 101.
NO back roads this year!! Those who read the beginning of our trip last year(think it's the first post on this thread) will understand!!
Packing the stuff has been a bit of a challenge with no pickup truck,,
Found that the folding bikes fit pretty good with the table top on end and the foam enterence pads stuffed in between.
This storage box happens to fit between the 2 cabinets perfect and still have room for the cooler, Easy Up add a room and 5gal water jug.
Best part I can have it empty in no time for a lunch stop or whatever,,,
Anyway hope to post pics as we go.

Good morning, I have to confess we cheated on the Boler last night,,,,,,
I knew yesterday would be a long day and found this lodge just east of Portland
on the internet.
Car ran great and the Boler tows and absorbs the bumps great with the new axle
