As we leave Redding CA, the trees start to look a lot like Washington -- can't wait!
Ah, the first snow capped mountain, Mt. Shasta.
And a directional sign to take the Crag View Drive....
We stop at a Rest Area, and see people taking pictures of our boat, while I take a picture of a helicopter.
More beautiful scenery, as we get closer....
A slight delay to take a side pull-out for an inspection of Willie's Tug, but we know she will pass.
Willie's Tug is pronounced clean and gets her tag.
Now we begin our daily search for where we will sleep tonight, and RV park that sounds good declines to accept us. Why? When I explain that we are in a truck pulling a boat that we live aboard like an RV, she imagines a truck pulling a motor home with a boat towed behind.
Can't have that.
After further discussion and trying to talk my way into a reservation, I am told they have a few sites available, but save them for RVs. Ummm, uh, we are like an RV, but look like a boat, just happen to be a boat. We have stayed in RV parks all the way from Texas to the state of Washington.
"I'm sorry, but the owners tell me I can only have real RVs here. You might try Tri-Mountain RV Park at Ridgefield WA."
We do, and are welcomed. Brenda, the camp host, tells us if we are after 5P, just ring the bell at the office or go directly to site #79, a nice pull through. When we arrive after hours, she tells us to enjoy our evening and pay in the morning.
She is excited because she has never had a boat in the park, and would like us to send her pictures.
Jake gets a late evening walk as we enjoy the scenery.
Willie of Willie's Tug,
and of Walldog, Willie and Jake
