Day 20, 21, 22 - Chehalis, WA - TT

Thursday (20) - Another uneventful day at the TT park. The coach has an appointment at a glass shop in Longview, WA, for first thing in the morning next Thursday which is, conveniently, the day we check out of this TT park. They said that if there isn’t a problem, it’ll be ready to go by late afternoon. 

Another remote ham radio exam this morning. It went well. To meet the FCC requirements, a lot of time is spent examining the physical area where the test is being taken. But, I think that this is the new norm for these ham radio license exams. 

Friday (21)
 - Nothing scheduled for today except a couple of Zoom calls. One for another test and the other is the monthly meeting of the Fairbanks radio club. BTW, I don’t think I posted a photo of our site since we moved. Not too bad though the neighbors have a couple of noisy dogs.

I picked up some salmon from Walmart the other day. For some reason the Alaska salmon is over double the price of Atlantic salmon. The sous vide is still one of the best ways to make salmon. Or, at least, the most consistent way. A dry cure for 20 minutes then 45 min at 122°F. 

Saturday (22) - It has been raining all night but I think it’s supposed to be lightening up later today. Not that I have anything planned for today. We are trying to use the heat pump to minimize our propane consumption and the challenge is that anytime we want to use anything else, we need to remember to shut off the heat pump. It is on a 20amp breaker and it trips occasionally. The 15 year old A/C unit probably needs replacement. I am planning on using the convection oven later so we’ll be back on propane. Though the oven does heat up the inside of the RV. 


  1. Looks like a nice camp spot but if you have noisy neighbours (or their dogs) it can be fairly enervating. How do you deal with it?

    1. The dogs bark when left alone inside their motor home. We barely hear them though the do bark a lot. I really don’t understand why some people get dogs. Especially large dogs.
