We got Cuddlebus back today, sporting a brand-new fuel pump! There would have been no way to plan for the fuel pump giving out, I’m just glad it happened when and where it did (we had cell service and another vehicle). So on the way to pick the bus up from the mechanic, we stopped at the cider mill that we didn’t get to go to last week as planned. We celebrated with fresh, hot mini donuts and delicious apple cider. We are surprised that there aren’t more cider mills in Washington. Washington is famous for apples. Look at these beauties!
Noooo, Cuddlebus!! After our long weekend at the amazing Deception Pass State Park, Cuddlebus wouldn’t start. We learned a few things about our AAA service, most notably that they will not tow a converted vehicle (non-standard RV) for whatever reason. Disappointing. We did have it towed eventually for some out-of-pocket $$$. We knew the day would come at some point when our home with all of our belongings would have to be in the shop, just didn’t know it would be today. Had to pack a bag really quick and empty / unplug the fridge. 😜 I miss our bus already, but since I have to travel for work this week the timing is ok.
What a dream. We are staying at Deception Pass this weekend, and after next week (I have to travel for work) we are going to come back and spend a couple more weeks here and down the Olympic Coast. This is the view I get while I work! Pinch me, is this real?
We spent our first night in Washington State at a state park campground near Mount St. Helens. What a perfect place for our first night. It was lush, ferny, drippy, densely forested, with mushrooms growing everywhere. We listened to the sound of fat raindrops splattering on the bus roof all night. It was amazingly peaceful, and so perfectly “Washington”. So this is what freedom feels like! We keep hugging each other, laughing like kids, and throwing each other random fist bumps. 👊
We are leaving the Rogue Valley! Not homeless, but “homefull”, because we always have our home with us. Here’s to the next nomadic chapter! 🌎
