Safe Water Recreation Water Risks

In recent years, Washington has ranked in the top 5 for all states for boating fatalities. This is not a ranking we want to see repeated this summer! However, as temperatures rise many head to the water for relief and refreshment. However, even when the temps skyrocket past 100, the water temperatures can remain quite frigid due to mountain run-off. In fact, many rivers will still have temps in the 40’s or 50’s (and sometimes colder!) right now. This is especially true with the cooler spring we had this year. These temperatures can easily cause cold-water shock, which can lead to drowning.

Be Safe, Wear a Life Jacket

Even the most experienced boater and swimmer should wear a life jacket when out on the water. In particular, small craft such as kayaks, [...]

How to find the perfect campsite Know the Right Questions

Are you knee deep in summer travel plans? Are you searching for the perfect campsite location? We have several questions that are key to answer in your hunt for the perfect campsite. Answering these questions will make your search much more straightforward.

Question 1 : What hookups do you need?

What hookup does your RV require – 30 or 50 AMP? Conversely, if you’re planning on staying in a tent or have a much smaller rig, you will not want to shell out the dollars for a 50 AMP spot if that hookup is unnecessary. Most camping locations will allow you to narrow your search by hookup.

In addition, you need to consider whether sewer hookup is a must. Some of the prettiest and more remote campsites [...]
