|Subway @ Truckstop in Ellensburg, WA|
|Pizza in Cle Elum|
That morning headed to Cle Elum, WA, which is a charming small town just off I90. Prior to heading here checked to make sure could get internet through the Clear puck. Lo and behold, when got to campground, and subsequently checking out the town, no signal at all... Big letdown since campground didn't have internet. Was able to go to a Radio Shack (had a separate coffee shop and also a computer repair place). There was also a McDonalds with WiFI too.
Had pizza there Sunday night after got back from Snoqualmie Falls and it was pretty ok. For the price don't think it was worth it as not a lot of toppings and had asked for heavy on the sauce, yet they charge me for an extra topping due to that. Didn't realize till after the fact.. Bad juju there.
Enjoyed Cle Elum a little bit but didn't really spend all that much time there unfortunately. Yes, the weekend, but went there primarily due to closer proximity to Seattle area and had two events to attend, one Saturday and one Sunday. It had a real good feel to it, everyone seemed authentic and I even won a 50/50 raffle at the local Eagles club (and got an Eagles "passport" to get filled up).
Left Cle Elum on the way to the Tri-Cities area in Washington. Followed I90 East until the Columbia River, then followed Route 242 south following the river. It was quite a nice drive, though hairy at times due to the roads and a very stiff crosswind at times. Crosswind and RV is bad juju. Made it and had no problems with anything enroute to current destination. Route 242 turned into Route 240 which brought me right into the area.
While the tri-cities area is somewhat nice, this is one place where need a car or some other form of transportation. Everything seems to be quite spread out, but it is super fast to get out of town and into the surrounding scrublands. Great if want to offroad or something, but not many trees to be seen. Am happy not staying here too long, just felt the need to come here.
