Back Home in the Hood!
Had my first truly UNEVENTFUL drive in the RV from Sequim to Hoodsport… what do I mean by uneventful… no CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, no OVER HEATING, and BONUS I didn’t even piss any truckers off! LOL I even made an unplanned stop to checkout Triton State Park (future dive site). Upon arrival my slide outs worked, refrigerator worked, electric hot water worked, and the hydraulic jacks worked!! I can finally get the awning out! While it will need some new struts (once we can finding them) at least it is no longer stuck and I can get the darn thing out. I feel at home once again with this beautify view out my front window! Tranquility…
Quite a delay in getting everything working… I didn’t get on the road south timely so I have decided to hunker down and head south in spring as soon as the roads are good. I’ve learned quickly NOTHING goes as planned so you just adapt and make it work your way. My way…. is going to be diving the PNW during the best time, with some great dive buddies.
I had to fulfil that dive desire today, so I took the pony and the wide angle over to Sund Rock in search for the octopus on the south wall and to visit my favorite little wolf eels on the north wall. Still a ton of little krill or something hatching!! I’d hit spots where they were thick and other areas had fabulous visibility.
Big thank you to Omar at Octopus Gardens Diving for helping me determine my mouth piece was leaking and replacing it! New mouth piece, new neck seal and I had a nice dry dive!! Special thanks to my aunt Barb and Dan for letting me work out of their beautiful home office.... and feeding me yummy foods!!! It was an awesome treat to spend time with you!
Here’s to a winter full of PNW Diving!
