OVER THE SISKIYOU PASS AHEAD OF THE SNOW


We were up at 6:17 this morning and on the road at 7:14.  I topped off the tank next door so we didn’t have to worry about gas the rest of the day.  I drove 2 hours and 40 minutes getting us well beyond Sacramento before making our first stop.  Aileen drove the next 1.75 hours then I drove us the rest.  We got in to Henderson’s in Grant’s Pass a little after 4 pm, so about nine hours today.  That’s where we had our suspension worked on so successfully last year and they told us to feel free to come and plug in outside the shop if we were passing by, so we did.  There was lots of wind in several places along the way, but nothing like yesterday   I had planned to take Aileen to The Vine, the great gluten free restaurant we ate at last year, but they are closed on Sunday so it was supper at home. 
The weather for the next few days looks rather lousy and especially, wet.  We are planning on taking two days to get to Port Angeles, where we’ll take the ferry to Victoria, but it seems we might have a bit of snow even in the lower elevations.  I guess we’ll just have to see what happens.  The forecast for the Siskiyou Mountain area is predicting possibly several feet accumulation as there is about four inches of rain forecast coming in from the coast.
