Monday, June 18 – We made a short drive up to Kelso, Washington, today. We are staying at the Kelso Elks Lodge for a couple days while we visit Mount St. Helens.

The Lodge is very nice, but the campground needs some more gravel. The sites are gravel with gravel streets. With the recent rain, things are a little muddy. We have 30 amp electric and water. There is a dump station on the property.

We met friends, Jeri and Terry Williams for dinner in the lodge this evening. It's “burger-nite.” It's our “farewell” dinner because we will probably pull-out of the area before seeing them again. They wouldn't let us drive, pay for gas, or buy them dinner during our guided tours. They finally agreed to dinner at the Elks tonight….WOW, they really made us pay big…NOT!

Once again, we would like to thank Jeri and Terry for the time they spent with us and the enjoyable days around the Portland area. Thanks guys!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
