We are in North Ogden Utah for tonight.  If I lived in Utah I would sell my Sawmill and buy a rock grinder.


Then you and @thecfarm could then discuss rocks in more detail!

Would not have to dig them here.  They are already on top.  We are somewhere in Idaho.

Wow. You're making some pretty good time there.
At this rate you'll be passing my neck of the woods tomorrow.
The weather will be perfect for a boat ride. Maybe even see an Orca or two.

Lynn your gonna pass within about 35 miles from our place on your return trip. Problem is The Missouri River is still flooded at highway 2 at exit 10 off of interstate 29 is still closed since May. Looks like you are having a great trip. Thanks for taking us all along.

Wow. That first photo of Mt. Rainier is spectacular. Did you take it or is it a postcard? If you took it, do you remember where it was? I'd love to stand in that same spot.

Safe travels.

We started the day with a wonderful Crab Omlet breakfast.


 
Then redbeard Jeff demonstrated sawing on his new Cooks AC36.


 
The tailgunners were PatD and Kelly.


 
Then Jeff cranked the Oscar 60.


 
And sawed a Madrona crotch.

We made the very pleasant ~3 hour ferry journey to Vancouver Island this morning but found Victoria much too "busy" for our liking. 


 
After a quick stop at the grocery to pick up a few items and a visit to an ATM to get some "Loonies", we are down for the evening just West of Victoria.  We will journey North tomorrow toward Port Alberni.  WiFi tonight but I don't anticipate having any for the next several days.

You'll need to hit another ATM soon. In this country that $100 won't last long.  
Sounds and looks like you're having a good trip.  ;D
