We travelled together….us with our Ford Diesel and Cougar travel trailer…..through the Cascade Loop in Washington State..gone for the month of August..  over 2200 kilometers…a trip filled with many special memories…

RV’ing is a part of us…even though we aren’t experiencing it at  the moment..nice to remember the fun we had…the places we saw…the roads we travelled…Summer 2008 was  a great memory….

Happy 75th Birthday,  Dad..hope you have a great day!!!
