Hello there guys, thanks again. Glad to know we're all a tag team here and support each other. It was pretty country and pretty much took it's own picture. All a guy has to do is point
a camera. And I know now that I did miss the Hoh Forest & River, another very good reason to go back. Thanks and have a great week...

Not to highjack the thread, but do you notice the extra weight with the canoe and cargo box when opening the top? I presume yours is a power top. Mine seems to struggle (seems being the key word here) and hasn't left me with confidence to stow anything on top without first removing it before raising the top.

Oh yeah, there were some strength issues. I realized I need to work out a bit! I don't have the power top but if it can be added I might look into it.

Wow that is impressive to be cranking that much weight up by hand.

I had my camper retrofitted from the hand crank to the power top as it seemed unloaded it was getting difficult to crank up. So, yes it can be done. I drove back to Longmont and left the camper with them for 2 days and it was done.

Outstanding photography and story as always, Whazoo. I love Victoria, great city. My wife did a marathon there a few years back...your photos brought back some fun memories.

Very nice Dave. Glad you got to see what you did, at the speeds with which you had to travel, especially considering you lost two days. Glad you enjoyed Salt Creek. It's a favorite of ours. We're looking forward to the next installment of Whazoo's World.

Love the pictures and commentary.

Just to clarify:

This time we are facing the Strait of Georgia. Now I was born in Georgia, and I for one never knew we had a strait, especially on the other side of the country. It doesn't make sense to me. But then the Arkansas River doesn't start in Arkansas either, so there you have it.


Some rivers are named by their terminus - Missouri and Arkansas to name a couple. Could be that who ever named them was lost! Some are named by a State they pass through - Ohio river. Some are named by a State they pass next to - Mississippi (which has it's head waters at Lake Itasca in Minnesota and terminates in Louisiana)

BTW - folks in Kansas call the Arkansas Ar-Kansas (pronounced OUR KANSAS).

The Camano Island Chamber of Commerce called and they want to send you a check because since you posted your travel log, TC tourists have flocked to the island.

Before you get your hopes up, the Check doesn't speak English, but knows Russian pretty good.

Now that's funny, and just what I needed tonight. Thank you!!

Everyone here is so generous with support and compliments. I look forward to adding mine for others, we are truly a team! BTW Peter, where do you keep the keys to your awesome Camaro? Is there a straight stretch on the island where she can open up? And can I call it the Kerwien Camano Camaro?
