Congrats! Thanks for checking in - would love to know the campground you are in, if you want to send a PM. We're a couple weeks behind you, and I'm trying to figure out where to stay our first night...

Mary,
We will be picking up our new 17A soon, and originally thought we'd use the KOA in Lynden:
Lynden / Bellingham KOA | Camping in Washington | KOA Campgrounds

But, instead, since we will visit Whidbey Island, and then take the ferry to the Olympic Peninsula, we booked our first two nights at Bay View State Park: Bay View State Park | Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission

Here is another site we use for campsite research:

Hi, Don. Another friend has also recommended Ft Casey SP, wch is near the Whidbey/Ft. Townsend ferry landing. That won't be our first night, but it maybe our 2d and 3d.

Coming down to the wire...

Looking forward to reports on your camping sites!!!

Ellen... We did not see your egg shell as we couldn't take a tour. Too early in the day.... But surely your baby is on its way to being hatched!!

First 2 nites we camped at Hidden Village in Lynden. Nothing special. But a place to regroup and set up the trailer. It worked. Then we traveled south a bit and went to Bay View SP which was very nice. If I can find a way to post pics later I will.
We met up with Loren and Cathy there and shared dinner and much talking with them. It was great.... 2 brand new Escapes parked side by side and we met great folks from the forum!
There was a small Escape right in the front on the bay with an awesome view when we got there. But didn't get a chance to go over and say hi. They were gone when we left.
We are on the road to FT Stevens in OR for 3 nites. Really looking forward to that!

Yeah, my little guy should've started hatching this past week -- thinking I may receive photos this coming week.

Yup, that's the best site in Bay View SP. It's the one I always try to get.
