Aug 8, 2014 - Alki Point and Other Places

After leaving the Olympic Peninsula we spent two weeks at Lake Sawyer, having to move 3 times because the park is very busy. Actually, it is busy, especially on the weekends. And people from the local area like to come here for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, leaving on Sunday morning. This park has a real problem with their sewer system and the number of sites with sewer has been nearly cut in half and the city of Black Diamond will not grant a permit to rectify the situation. Probably has a lot to do with being on the lake and the cost to...

Apr 11, 2014 - 1st District Conference

For once, we had a fairly uneventful trip over the pass and managed to drop into West Seattle before the commute traffic made things difficult. This District always meets at the same place, Post 160 in West Seattle. They are the only ones with a building. That however, is now no longer really true.

The problem is the commander transferred the property to an organization of which he is the...

The Post is in the midst of renovating things, so the room we had dinner in has been painted and freshened up. They are now calling it an "Event Center" and have included a small bar. They are...

Apr 19, 2013 - 1st District Coference

Arrived at son Jon's home a few hours early to catch a nap before heading into the city for this conference. Friday evening for a conference in the Seattle Metro Area is NOT a good idea. It took an hour to get across the lake, merge into the moving parking lot known as I-5, and make my way over to get off on the West Seattle Bridge. I arrived without any dents of dings! The West Seattle Post is a nice older building, but they have NO parking. I was finally able to find some street parking up hill in a neighborhood about a quarter mile...
