Looking back, we realized this is a very impressive list, seems even more so after researching all of our travels. We are now spending 10 days in Puyallup at the fairgrounds, using this as our home base for our volunteering at the US Open at Chambers Bay. We are looking for a place to live in the Bellevue/Eastside area, jobs, and selling our beloved MoHo. What an amazing adventure for sure!
