    Cashmere and Wanatche, Washington

    Martha and I are way behind on blogging. We finally finished the last of our Washington stays near Cashmere and Wanatchee. While there we visited the Cashmere Pioneer Museum which was an unexpected and well curated display and also we visited Leavenworth, Washington where the whole town is built around the Bavarian theme. While there we visited the "Nutcracker" museum. Yes, it's a thing.

    Pacific Coast Highway

    We just completed our trek up Highway 101. We use google maps a truckers atlas to verify route restrictions and clearance issues and this trek was no different. I can tell you that you will have no problems if you follow the truck routes. As others have pointed out the lower (southern) part of 101 has some restrictions. But once you are past Porterville, CA you can travel the entire route safely. Keep in mind, there are a lot of tight spots on the route. One worth mentioning is near Redwoods National Park. There are giant redwood on either side of the highway and the road is not very wide though them. Just expect to do a lot of slowing down. We are 56' from front bumper to end of our toad and we had no issues. Our trip took us to Orcas Island via the Anacourtes Ferry. Safe travels and enjoy.

    Marthas Thoughts on Traveling on Highway 101

    True about the signs, It's easy to let your eyes wander to the views. One word signs get your attention. My favorite is "Rocks," Umm are they on the road,? are they falling on the road now,? are they doing a chip and seal? A little more info would help. My next favorite is the speed signs that seemingly double the size of the speed. You will have normal signs that say 55 and when they want your undivided attention the increase the font to look like 55. I have never seen this before. I have to admit it's effective. Besides, 101 is one curvy and hilly road with absolutely stunning views. They gotta get your attention some how.
  6. Martha and I continue our trip up the Oregon Coast. This blog entry is about Gold Beach, Port Orford and Prehistoric Gardens. Tomorrow (the 29th) we continue north up the Oregon and Washington coasts where we will load the "Beast" onto an ocean going ferry for the trip to Orcas Island.
