Our plan to visit Gig Harbor and get another taste of the islands in Puget Sound was nearly abandoned when we thought the only way to get there was via the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.  We just didn’t care to brave Monday morning Tacoma traffic with a trailer in tow but then we learned of the longer, more scenic approach from the west through Shelton. We stayed at the only campground in town, a former KOA, the Gig Harbor RV Resort. When we called for a reservation we were asked the model year of our camper! When we arrived we became very aware that we were the tiniest unit in the park by far. Our one excursion out was to the Safeway where we did find Steve some Kava and we got some nice cheeses for this evening but the traffic was crazy enough to dissuade us from exploring further. This once small seaside town that was once populated by fishermen and farmers is now a booming bustling tourist town. But our real reason for our stay here was an evening with Deb & Kevin from nearby Fox Island who are also T@B 400 owners. We had met in the parking area at Gorge Falls Overlook in the North Cascades and had so much fun that we made plans to rendezvous again. They joined us for an evening of wine, cheese, camaraderie, and T@B talk. Now we’re all looking forward to our paths crossing again!

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
