Dave,

Don't forget to add in the tow truck expense. If you're going that far you know you're going to break down. Do you remember that the first time we spoke you had broken down outside of Vegas on your way to the Valley of Fire meet and greet? You seem to be unlucky on trips with your SMB, yet you keep smiling and are cheerful.

Here's the good news. If your SMB breaks down you can walk on the ferry and ride it for free to any of the San Juan Islands.

It's Don's wife. She has a voodoo doll of my van and sticks needles in it every time we head out

Anyway I've bullet proofed my engine and nothing is ever gonna happen again I also own Lopez Island and will sell it to you for cheap.

Thank you for sharing! We love Lopez, but never been there with the van.
