The Last Three Days Coming Back Home – Sunday, Monday and Tuesday
We have been gone for a month. The last blog page should have been dated for Saturday but it was posted as Sunday because I didn’t get it written until after midnight. Sunday morning we get up and have breakfast and say good bye to those that haven’t already left for home.
Then after packing up ourselves we leave to go see if we can find the gas cap to Tin Lizzie as well as the cap to the Radio Flyer. In our hurry last night to get gas and get to the boat before it left for our farewell dinner, both of our gas caps ended up coming off on the way. It was a shot in the dark, but we thought we would try anyway. No luck at the gas station where we got gas, but a couple blocks down the road in the gutter we find the cap to Tin Lizzie! It is not hurt. We go another mile or so to where I thought I saw Terri’s fly off and as we are stopped at the signal we find her’s in the middle of the road. It had been run over but it is salvageable. What a stroke of luck!
We are the last ones to load our car on the trailer and leave, with many thanks to Mike and Lil for letting us leave the van and trailer at their place. Then we are on our way. It ends up being a very easy border crossing. We travel via Steven’s Pass on Hwy. #2 through a forest fire and on to Toppenish just before Yakama and stay at the Yakama Nation RV Park.
Monday we get up and travel via Hwy. # 97, taking the scenic slower route home. We decide to make a stop at Crater Lake and spend the night there.
