Little Girl Eating

Summertime can often be filled with invitations for barbeques, parties and other gatherings with family and friends. While our schedule used to just revolve around work schedules, these days with our one-year old son we also have to take in to account his afternoon nap and early bedtime. Previously we swore we would never be those parents who revolve their lives around their children’s schedules - we would flex some and they would flex some. Yet when reality hit that our son would not sleep in the car or in anything other than a bed, we soon found ourselves declining many invitations to social events as they imposed on his sleep needs.

Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho

August can be a hot month for RVing in the Pacific Northwest. Typically you have two choices to stay cool, head to the ocean beaches or high into the mountains. If the ocean is too far, Idaho’s Sawtooth Mountains offer plenty of mile high (or higher) camping options for an RVer looking for warm days and cool nights. Those that make the journey enjoy views of the scenic Sawtooth Range, rushing rivers, sparkling lakes, towering forests and epic amounts of open space for camping.

Day 3 – Quinault Rain Forest

On day three of our RV journey around the Olympic Peninsula, our intent was to get to the Hoh Rain Forest and spend most of the day there. However, the saying that "the adventure is in the journey, not the destination" is so true! We started out with a road plan that first took us toward Lake Quinault. As we got closer, all kinds of interesting stops enticed us!

Blewett was a small mining town located along Peshastin Creek on the Chelan County side of Blewett Pass. The first mining claims were filed in 1874 with a stamp mill to process the ore constructed in 1878. Soon after the arrival of a post office in 1893, the name Blewett was bestowed on the settlement in honor of Edward Blewett who owned many of the mines in the area.
