So - we took our first EVER trip in our restored 74 Trillium
We drove from Vancouver BC to Grayland Beach WA. it was a BLAST! the triler worked really well, and the bed was great. Several things we learned:
1. Do NOT
, repeat DO NOT try to drive from Seattle to Oympia at 3 pm on a Friday.... OMG was the traffic bad....almost three hours. It took 1 hr 20mins coming home - Sunday at 11:30.
2. It IS
possible to wash dishes with Old Spice Body wash...when one forgets dish soap.
3. While it IS sunny on Washington's west coast, it does help to have a jacket (in otehr words, I forgot my jacket at home).
4. The roof vent and the wondows need ot be open to vent the condensation at night.
5. OMG are motor-homes BIG
...we were dwarfed beside these beheomoths!
6. Does anyone ACTUALLY cook inside their trailers? We cooked outside the whole trip, and I can really see using the stove inside leading to moisture problems etc.
The trip was really fun, and the campsite at Grayland Beach is terriffic...can anyone tell me if ALL washington state campsite / state parks are so well run? the site was clean, the showers and bathrooms were super-clean .. but I forgot to buy tokens beforehand...there I was, towel and dopp-kit in hand, and had to go back to the Trillium
and get cash and walk to the ranger station, then back to shower.... it was beautiful sunny morning, so it was OK...
the beach was beautiful - it was strange to see cars on the beach - something you NEVER see in BC....
we had campsite #90 - which backes onto the dunes, and it was gorgeous - about 100 paces to the beach..
All in all it was a great first trip....
