That is terrific to hear, Carroll, and I hope it is smooth sailing thru closing.

Have a wonderful holiday, a Happy New Year, and keep us posted.

What an adventure you have had.


Maggie

boy of boy. you need to learn how to spell the names of the places in the PNW.

it's SEQUIM not sequin; ANACORTES not anaconda.

life on any island is not only restrictive but the ferry costs to and from are nothing to sneeze at. to get my truck and 25' up to the San Juan island will set me back $250 each way. folks who live on these islands will be quick to inform you about these costs.

now couple that with the difficult of getting to a specific island. the ferries are loaded with a restricted number of combinations so they can stop at multiple islands. coming on January 1st, however, will be the ability to make online reservations with X number held back for people driving up and so on. might make it easier but not less expensive.

i would love to hear this posters ability to pronounce some of the PNW names, hehehe.

it's real a shame that

people like GPT get to roam the earth without a leash or some other restriction on what they are able to do…..

this not a discussion forum about the difficulties of your travel in the san juans……

don't go…don't complain in my adventure…..

hey hey he he /...get off my cloud…..

Visiting the San Juans is steep, but not quite that steep. We take our Airstream to Lopez every summer, and the fare to get to Lopez is about that.

But ferry fares to the San Juan Islands are only charged on one direction. The trip back to the mainland is free.

not complaining only pointing out a person who does not take the time to inform himself about the local names or who can't spell. i always found it useful to inform myself about the places i intend to visit in advance.

have fun, spend lots of money.

here is the ferry pricing link:

WSDOT - Ferries - Fares: Anacortes to Orcas Island

can't tell you exactly what it would cost you as with a trailer it will be by overall length. once you pop over 50' overall, the pricing takes a jump. as you can see, this pricing is ONE WAY so double the cost or simple change the terminals you have in mind and run it again.

its also important to realize that a ferry going to an island makes multiple stops so loading of any single ferry is determined by volume going to any one of the stops. what that means to you is you may be sitting in line for a long time.

but, on January 1st, for the first time ever, you will be able to make reservations for island travel.

and you do return at no fee from Orcas to Anacortes.

I'm always correcting the anacondas/Anacortes autocorrect.

Lighten up, GPS.

GPT…THIS IS NOT A THREAD ABOUT YOUR DIFFICULTIES IN TRAVELING THE SAN JUANS.

so get off my cloud….

if it is too expensive for you….then don't go………

once on orcas, lopez, shaw or others…..you leave FOR FREE…..

IT IS MY ADVENTURE…and GPT you are not invited…..

I have personally been using the ferries in the San Juans annually since the mid-seventies and can assure you that:

* The fare from Anacortes to the islands is always round-trip; once on the islands, the return trip does not require additional payment.
* International runs (Sidney <-> San Juans) do cost ($$$) in both directions.

Note that the ferries are significantly more expensive in the summer season.

yeah Bart, i corrected my error in the post above. fares are R/T.

PS-i have zero difficulties travelling the San Juan's, i simply point my boat ENE and hit it. about 45 minutes and Roche harbor. BIL has 10 acres on San Juan island set up for a trailer to come visit along with their horse barns and so forth. but, an island is an island, not much to do and once you have seen the sights a time or two, boring. but, they are noted for their proximity to Seattle and the sailing opportunities they afford, can't beat that.

Yeaaayyyy!

Congratulations, you guys!

What a view. You may never want to leave, and end up selling that trailer.
