Fry Lodge Mobile

For nearly two months, starting as soon as the kids are out of school, Fry Lodge is going mobile. For most of the summer we’ll be living in our RV as we travel around the Pacific Northwest. We’re calling it ProjectWA.

Having never driven, slept in… or emptied the gray water of our own RV, we knew we needed a shake down cruise – to test the systems and familiarize ourselves with RV culture. This weekend, we took our motorhome off island and camped for three nights in the Burlington KOA.

With the exception of a broken tail light at the very end of our trip, Kristine and I agree that we nailed the shake down cruise. It was just like car camping. Except we had a microwave, hot running water, our own bathroom and comfortable beds to crawl into at the end of the day.

We were surrounded by other RV families, so Henry and Ruby quickly made friends. They spent most of their time biking around the KOA property, while Kristine and I got acquainted with power, water and sewer hook ups. By the time we rolled out of camp, we felt pretty confident in our RV skills.

On the way back to the Anacortes ferry terminal, we stopped at the Padilla Bay Bike Trail, where we had a picnic before biking through some beautiful Skagit Valley farmland.

With the shakedown cruise in our rear view video monitor, we’re looking forward to our two-month summer tour of the Northwest. Members of the Fry Lodge Faithful can follow along at http://www.ProjectWA.org
