For now, we are going to enjoy the grandeur of our beautiful country by spending a few months in the northwestern part of the US. When we purchased our trailer it came with a one year free membership to Thousand Trails, which is essentially fancy, private, campgrounds around the US. With the free membership we were to choose an area of the country to explore and we will have free access to their campgrounds in that area. We can stay at each campground for up to 2 weeks at a time. So as we check out the different areas where these campgrounds are, we have free lodging! The other stipulation with the membership is that there has to be seven days in between each two week stint so we will boondock, camping in a remote area that is free or very inexpensive, at areas that we find on the way to our next destination.
there. We are thinking about maybe going to the Calgary Stampede, in Alberta, and then going back to the US and spending some quality time in Washington State and Oregon! We are already gathering ideas of what to go see and do but if you have suggestions, we would love to hear them! We did buy the Hiking Washington State Falcon Guide so that will be a great tool to find some hikes in the areas we are going.
For now, we are enjoying time with Jake’s middle brother, sister-in-law and their two kids! We will spend over two weeks at their home, working on our trailer and vehicle, sightseeing, swimming at the pool, hanging out, and just enjoying being with family!
