Continuing our sojurn across the US, we said good-bye to Gaily, Jackie and Stan on December 4th and started our trek east toward Clearwater for Christmas.
We had an invitation for Thanksgiving with friends in eastern Texas, but we still had almost two weeks to make our way across that very large state.

So it was back to storage to drop off more stuff before we headed out for real. Port Angeles, WA Our first planned destination was Port Angeles, Washington, to visit Jere’s sister and brother-in-law. We made our way up the …
