Have a good trip and enjoy but as far as your schedule goes, just remember one thing. The battle plan goes to heck after the first shot is fired. This is the height of the road construction season. Loren

One thing that I have had to use in the past and once on this trip is a 50 amp to 30 amp adapter. Among the things that you can encounter are worn out 30 amp receptacles and weak 30 amp Breakers or a site with just 20 and 50 amp services. The 50 to 30 will allow you to run your AC and the rest of your power draws where the 20 to 30 might not. I have two adapters 20 to 30 and 50 to 30' and a nice heavy 25 foot drop cord with lighted power end. As Donna says YMMV. All the best to you in camping but I gotta stay with my Ohio State boys when it comes to football.

I see that Google Maps says you can get from Missoula to Bellingham in 8.5 hours. That's 557 miles which means one is averaging 65 mph. I'm thinking that Google Maps is crazy here and that 8.5 hours is optimistic. I've made that trip many times and no way I've done it in 8.5 hours. And Lynden to Deception Pass State Park in one hour. Nope, no way. Just be careful.
