Well, it is as ready as we can make it for now, so, yeah! We are going. We have to finish cleaning out the back "workshop" garage tomorrow. And on Thursday our handy-man is coming to start a few minor repairs required by the pest control report.
I will pack and load the Alfa over the next two days, and spend Friday doing the last bit of wash and cleaning the house just a little bit more. We plan on sleeping in the Alfa Friday night, and leave in a leisurely way on Saturday.
It's 915 miles from here to the campground in the Olympic Peninsula. Check in is at 4:00 PM on Tuesday, so we should have plenty of time to get there. I plan on either Boondocking at a Walmart or pulling into one of several Passport America or SKP parks along the way. The drive should be quite enjoyable. It's still a few days to early to look at the weather forecasts, but there seems to be a slight chance of some thunderstorms over the weekend. We have time to go a little slower than we would like to, but if we hit wind and rain it will be best to take our time.
I spent some time looking at the road into the park on Google Earth tonight. That really is a neat thing to do when going to a new place. Sol Duc is about 15 miles into the park, and the road looks like it is two lanes, undivided, but not too curvy.
It looks like there is a lot to see, hike and enjoy. What a welcome change it will be from working on the house.
Speaking of the house, the photographer comes on Monday, and it will go up on the MLS on Friday August 16th.
I never thought I'd see the day!
I keep hearing the market is "hot" right now. But I am trying not to expect a quick sale. What will be, will be. We still have work to do when we get home, and a lot of stuff to still dispose of.
But starting on Saturday we will be away from it and unable to do anything, so we will just have to take a deep breath and live the good life for a couple of weeks.
I will probably post again before we leave, but if not, keep us in your thoughts for safe and uneventful driving.
