I'm trying again...third comment mostly the same words...
Tell Linda that if she can find "Mr. Mercedes", by Stephen King, a Mini-Series of 10 1-hr. segments on the "Audience" channel; GET IT! Well worth it, even if you have to pay! Oops...forgot that you gave up your satellite! Sorry...but the book is available also, if she hasn't already read it. My DH has watched to series twice already, me, once is enough!

Also, could you please ask Linda where she got her multi-color shirt? It looks to be very comfortable & cute...not to mention unique!
I posted a comment in your previous post & I wanted to make sure you saw this. Thanks for all you do for the Fulltiming community. Your info. is so detailed & complete. It is appreciated by me in so many ways.

We're "toying" w/the idea of selling/donating all of our possessions & hitting the road. My Mom just turned 90 the 23rd of this month, so we'd be tied to just the MI area for the time being. I know that there's a lot to see just in this state, alone. But weather is a consideration. Like I said, we're just toying with the idea.
Sorry this comment was so lengthy...didn't realize how long-winded I can be. LOL...:} THANKS!

Linda, how do you choose where to get your hair and nails done on the road and especially in a new place?

As part of your travels in WA I can recommend that you check out the Forest Service COHO Campground on Wynoochee Lake. Way off the beaten track in the southerm part of the Olympics. Boat launch from the shore (I've done the lake in a tandom hard kayak), hiking trail completely around the lake, double wide sites among the trees. Unfortunately quite popular so no reservation might mean no room. It was many miles of gravel road the last time I was there but I've heard that it may be paved now.

A couple other western WA forest service campgrounds on lakes & with some hiking are Walupt Lake Campground and
Takhlakh Lake (great view of Mt Adams). Unfortunately, both are popular tho way back in the woods on rough gravel roads that you may not want to take the motorhome to but would make great day trips. Opportunities for boondocking, too.

The main St Helens access off I-5 is great but don't miss the Windy Ridge viewpoint, either. Also lots of hiking opportunities in the area of these, including some waterfalls.

I can't recommend a place to stay for these since I use a membership campground in Randle to access these areas & for day trips to Mt Rainier.

Thanks for the tip on the Stephen King series.

As for Linda's multi-colored shirt, the brand is Reel Legends and she got it at Beall's in Florida, but they are available on Amazon.

Thanks for the very kind words. :)
