Saturday 25th June 2011………..Day two done!!

Had a great sleep and took the opportunity to have a shower in Chris’s casa and was on the road by 8am after my second great couch surfing experience!!!

The first stop was down town Bellingham where I gassed up..

When I am on the road I use this great website called gasbuddy.com   it shows you the price of gas in every town in the USA and Canada so I choose the cities I am going through and find the cheapest price a good thing for me with the amount that Ramona drinks…the price above was way cheaper than anything else in Bellingham in fact it is the cheapest anywhere I have seen in 2 days!!

On the main street came across this accident!!

I left on the Interstate for about 20 miles and then got on to the secondary roads which I much prefer..check out the scenery changes as I head east…

I just received an e mail from my friends Terri and Mike Church, they are the author’s of all the great RV books and I see them each year in San Miguel…the e mail said  ..”Les I am sure we just passed you going in the opposite direction in the town of Wilbur about 6pm”..well that was me what a small world I wished we could have stopped and spent the evening together!!!!

My friend in Nanaimo Mary is not feeling great and I want to wish her my best wishes she loves hummingbirds and I brought her this feeder back in April and she sent me this photo today, blessings to you Mary.

Great pictures Les. If it is the remake of the original True Grit we didn't find it very good. If you haven't seen the original with John Wayne, then I suggest that you watch it as well, so you can make a comparission of them both. We really like the original even after all these years.

If memory serves me correctly, you are about to see some very different landscape. I think you will be driving through lava for miles. I found it pretty boring, but interesting to see.
