If you could anywhere from Seattle, where would you go?

We live near Seattle, WA and I am trying to convince hubby to take advantage of the time off our little one (well, not so little anymore, he is 6) will have from school (spring break) and go on a trip with our Airstream. We will have 10 days. We recently did a trip down along the Oregon coast which was spectacular to say the least.

If you lived here, where would you go for 10 days in your Airstream??

We've only had one trip that long, and we spent too much time traveling, and not enough time seeing where we were! I think if it was me, I might head up to Canada and check out Vancouver Island, I hear it's spectacular scenery up there.

The Olympic Peninsula? Come North to British Columbia or visit the North-East corner of your state (the area around Mount Baker is beautiful!).

HAWAIII!!!! I'd ship it there and have it waiting for me at the docks!

ok, not much help... sorry



I'm kindof a plant freak... I've always wanted to see the Redwoods in Cali... might make for a cool camping trip.

Sweet blog btw, those food pics look like they are out of a mag! Makin' me hungry!

Glacier National Park is beautiful. It will only take you 9-10 hours to get there.

I second this. That or the San Juan islands. I do believe you can ferry your airstream to both from BC.

Bremerton ferry to Port Angles. Take a day trip over to Victoria on the fast ferry. Go down to the docks and watch the factory boats load up lumber and sit off in International waters and make it into plywood. Watch them bring the plywood back in and unload it. Wonder how all this pans out.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Funny, I was just filing this last year note in my tax box: I-93, Directions to SpragPole Museum, Murray ID. Check out Dave Smith Dodge in Kellogg ID first (oh they'll fly you in to pick up your new Dodge anyway), then check out the gold panning in Murray. And all the fishing in the Idaho Panhandle. Gotta check out the Cabela's just across the WA line from Spokane toward Post Falls, ID. Buck Knife factory first exit into Idaho, Post Falls with their factory discontinued, blems.

Hey Splitrock, you need to get out more. The fast ferry to Victoria is no more, it's the Coho or swim. Also from Bellevue it's better to drive to Tacoma and up Hwy 16. The ferry with a trailer is about $80 these days.

I do agree the Olympic Peninsula is a great place to spend some time with a variety of things to see and do. I might be biased because I live here.

We did Vancouver Island about a year ago and had a great time, again many things to see and do. From Anacordes get off the ferry at Friday Harbor and spend a day or two. Then back on the ferry to Sidney on Vancouver Island.

Last December we did the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia. A little cold in December but had a great time anyway. It involves a couple of ferry rides but is a great place to visit. By the way the fare prices on the B.C. Ferries web site are for a round trip on these ferries.

Have a great trip, Dan

Ca

There are some things your 6 year old might like in California which is only a day and a hlaf away.

Lassen Volcanic park - nothing like the sight or smell of volcanic fumaroles.

California Railroad Museum in Sacramento - Big boys like this one too.

Columbia State park - Pan for gold, Get some Sasparilla at the Bar

The candy factory in Oakdale - Watch how Reese Cups are made then eat them.

Henry Cowell redwoods state park near Santa Cruz - Ride the roaring camp and Big Trees railroad line.

San Francisco Bay - Take the Ferry to Angel Isalnd for a little hike and some great views of the city and the golden gate.

Man . . . that's a two hour putt putt. I haven't been over there since 1994. Did I mention my wife doesn't like to travel (if ya don't count two trips a day to Wal Mart)?

If I had my way I'd be home two weeks then gone three, home two then gone three . . .
