After being in Washington state for 3 full weeks it was time to put the Washington State sticker on Wholly Rollin’s travel map.
Thursday morning the 22nd of October was departure day for this dear family and their rig.
Thursday was a beautiful Fall day but our grass area under the truck tires was soggy and soft and the back wheels of the truck were spinning in the mud. Oye.
Dear came to the rescue with his 4 wheel drive truck and a heavy duty chain.
The truck and rig were free to continue on the Wholly Rollin adventure on to Kennewick, Washington and then into Oregon.
It was a privilege to enjoy my brother’s family for an extended period of time.
Until we meet again may God continue to direct your paths and bless your journey.
On this same morning Josh and Laura departed from the west side of the Cascades on their journey to Colville for our annual Hunting weekend, a 5-1/2 hour trip. Little did any of us know that Providence would allow an intersection of our eastward travelers with our westward departed travelers! On their way on I-90 Wholly Rollin pulled off at the Sprague Rest Area just as Josh and Laura were passing Ritzville which is 20 miles west of Sprague. Leonard and Mandy decided to text Josh and Laura to see where they were on their journey and to both traveling groups delight they were able to meet up at the Sprague Rest Area.
A photo op some conversation and then both groups hit the road again for their final destinations.
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye!
Josh and Laura arrived to our place a little before four and these two couldn’t be happier to see their Uncle and Auntie. And then at 6:30 pm Uncle Andrew and Auntie Katie arrived and there was more excitement. We are anticipating a full weekend of fun and fellowship.
As I type on this Friday morning the snow is gently falling here in Colville. This was a surprise forecast this week and it will make hunting and family photo taking a little more interesting than usual. Our hunting crew were up on the mountain by six thirty AM this Friday morning.
I took the above photo yesterday in the morning.
And here’s the view this morning Friday October 23rd!
Happy Friday everyone!
