I’ve had reservations for a couple of weeks to move into town to get cell as well as consistent internet for one week. Tomorrow is the start of that week. Phone calls will happen first – the most critical at this stage.
Truly need to get the final touches, the final plans in motion for September and October. When I head out of here on the 29th of August – I’ve got a short amount of time to drive 900 miles to my niece (just north of Seattle) and then head down to Oregon for the NWLDGTG on the 10th of September. I had to decided between LaDeze or the NW GTG, as they overlap this time. Last week, I notified Lorna that I would have to bypass the LaDeze this year. The NW group were the first to welcome me into the LD fold – it will be great to see everyone once again. We are meeting just east of Eugene, OR this time.
I’ve been in touch with another gal, I first met last year at the LaDeze, and we are going to travel down to the Balloon Fiesta together. Just settling on the route took us a few days. Laughing here. Now to figure out where do we want to visit – such as Crater Lake NP, the Bristle pine cone National Park, etc. All needs to be worked out before I head out, as I won’t have connections when I leave Haines until I get into WA and if reservations are required, that prompts other actions. So got plenty to work on.
When all is said and done, I will return to Salmon Run Campground to all that beauty plus lousy internet and no cell until about the 20th of the month – then I’m not sure where I will hang my hat, but I suspect it will have a ocean view, or it may have a bear view, or it may have mountain view. And I sure hope I’ve sold my car by then…
