It was a good idea getting your leaks fixed before you moved to Washington!

Thanks carl, I believe they are, though. Btw, not moving to Seattle. Which has avg. 47" rain compared to spokane's 17" avg a year.

Thanks for the advice, much appreciated.

Well Shane the Rangers are gonna finally win the series and you'll miss it. The Cowgals are gonna finish dead last and you're gonna miss that wonderful happening too.

But before you go get yourselves over to David's BBQ in Pantego (Park Row) and give me a honest report on what you think of the BBQ & fixins there. Used to be the best in North Texas..IMHO.

Keep us posted on the move the drive and all the rest.
Happy trails.

The KOA in Billings is the first one of the chain and is very nice if you happen to be there when you need a place to stay.

The hill as you approach Butte is a long grade but the remaining passes in Montana are not so bad. You will see lots of beautiful country. Watch for all the antelope in Wyoming.

Spokane isn't so bad either. Hmmm, we don't have any BBQ to speak of although there are some new wanna be places popping up. Our politics are similar to Texas, unless you are from Austin, and you will have to put up with the Mariners (or not). We have 4 seasons and rain is not a big problem. When it does rain, it isn't during a hurricane or tornado. You can entertain outside without getting eaten by bugs, you can sleep in the ground and not worry about chiggers and if that volcano didn't blow, this place would be close to perfect.

OH, and Washington has it all. We have deserts, rain forests, sandy ocean beaches (cold water though), Puget Sound tide pools, the densely forested coastal range, arid high mountain forests of central and eastern Washington, farm land for miles, wheat fields and tons of wineries. Yeah, not a bad place and it is not all privately owned either. You can still camp for free many places if you know where to look.
