Drove down to Mount Rainier with Fabi's friends (Mary, Roger & Michelle) and went up to view it in a cable car. Breathtaking views of this snow-capped mountain. Ate at restaurant at 9000 feet.
Could see Mount St Helens and Mount Baker (180 miles away) from up there. Drove onto hot, dry, agricultural Yakima. Toe now really in ...

The next one was $30, then the next $40 (by this point we were thinking ourselves a little ...
We packed, searched, loaded the Mothership, the fridge & freezer. I don't think we have forgotten anything. Jim will be writing a poem about all my shoes soon. I brought my Rag American Flag quilt and my Star American Flag quilt. The big one isn't quite big enough for the bed but it should be OK in hot weather. OK, Indiana, here we come.
