North Bend and Beyond


So I spend part of my day, a couple of times a week at our dealership, Chaplin's North Bend Chevrolet in of all places, North Bend, Washington. I copied to following of the city website and would add that they are home to Nintendo's North American production and distribution facility. The popular televsion show, Twin Peaks was filmed in North Bend and neighboring Snoqualmie.

North Bend is located just 30 miles east of Seattle on Interstate-90. The City sits at the heart of an impressive array of year-round recreational opportunities including hiking, bicycling, kayaking, fishing, climbing and skiing. Surrounded by stunning vistas of Mount Si, Rattlesnake Ridge and the Cascade Mountains, North Bend charms with its Historic Downtown and offers an eclectic mix of dining and shopping, including the Factory Outlet Mall and its breathtaking views. The area presents impressive hiking and bicycling trails and paths, including the most famous and popular hike in Washington State, the Mount Si Trail, a strenuous 8-mile roundtrip hike with an elevation gain of over 4,000 feet. There are many other outdoor adventures and indoor discoveries awaiting you at the gateway to the Cascades - North Bend . . . easy to reach . . . hard to leave!


While reading the idiots guide to RV Travel I was struck by how many things there are to see and do in so many of the states we plan to visit. Seven months isn't going to be close to enough time for this venture. Don't tell Mia, but I think it is going to take more than one trip over several years to really get the full benefit of going to different places.

I am so looking forward to it.
