Yes. Bonneville was amazing! Looks like we can see haze in the distance now... Maybe from fires? We're headed towards Reno on i80. Anyone see a fire map?

You probably already know this, but... I-5 between Olympia and Tacoma will be a nightmare tomorrow (Monday) afternoon (end of holiday weekend). Get past that section as early as you can.

That part of I5 can be a bitch any time of day or week or month or hour or .... It doesn't have to be a holiday weekend for it to come to a complete halt.

I was quite amazed that my pull through the Seattle area at 8am this past Sunday was peaceful and serene.

Actually, I find the traffic won't lighten up till you are past Everett. If I can, I try to transit that area (Chehalis / Centralia to Everett) between 1:00 am - 3:00am. At these times probably you'll find the traffic light .... it's worth it to stay up past bedtime to transit this area.

Yes. I grew up in a small town called Tooele (pronounced too-will-uh). On weekends, particularly in the summertime, we'd go often go out to Bonneville and see how fast we could go on a motorcycle. Fun times.

What day are you picking up Casa Blanca? Isn't it exciting? We are getting our trailer on Monday, 9/14, after being on the road the past few weeks enjoying camping at Crater Lake (I'm getting too old for this), and then visiting family in Canada. Stayed in Whistler a few days and loved the scenery, hiking, and window shopping. We are now in Seattle vacationing with friends for a week and then off again to Chilliwack.

Sorry our paths won't cross this trip.
