$0: Moochdocking at mom & dad’s (Winlock, WA)
Nothing profound these past few days.
Washed nearly three weeks of clothes at a great laundromat (albeit a lousy restaurant).
Enjoyed some nice sunrises from the front yard.
Drove up to Mt Rainier’s west entrance via Rt. 12. My annual national parks pass is really paying for itself. Without it, the entrance fee is $30.
The great thing about driving up to “Paradise” is that even if it’s foggy at one elevation…
…chance are, you’ll find another that’s clear.
And of course, this.
I circled the visitor center about 10 times looking for parking, but gave up. I checked out the Cougar Rock campground for a future visit.
On the way down, I stopped for some petrified ethyl gasoline in Ashford.
Do you think it’ll void my warranty?
Across the street, I stopped for some Sherpa-Himalayan cuisine (as one does) at Wildberry. My waiter was a little over-dressed for the weather, but they take hygiene very seriously.
Back at the homefront, s’mores with mom and dad.
I washed and waxed the car for the next 4,000-mile leg of the journey.
Which of course meant, it rained.
I’ll be taking a one-week hiatus from the trip to fly back to the east coast for some concerts, but I’ll be back soon with renewed vigor for more trailering adventures.
