Thanks! Not a real photographer. I am an industrial designer though, so I do like pretty pictures!

Victoria BC and then my wife flew into to Vancouver to meet me there for a couple days.

She wanted to be on the trip but didn't have as much time off as me, but has been totally cool with me doing this trip. She rocks!!

From BC back into WA and Mt. Rainier. That place is also very incredible.
Then the Oregon coast. More surfing on the way home.

This is pretty much up-to-date now. Been 32 nights in the van so far. Lots of meals cooked in there, lots of questionable leftovers, cold ocean baths, and recycled laundry!

Not to mention the hundreds of things you encounter in remote places, such as almost being mauled by a pitbull as I came out of the water yesterday, haha!

Made it home in once piece! cheers
Did about 3600 miles and was in the van for 35 days. Pretty nice to be home!

Here's a few pics of the last couple days.

The van was too tall to fit! Otherwise the mirrors would have had to just come off.

This guy fit though...

Once again, tremendous pics, my friend!!! Thanks for posting...By the way, have you seen Robin and Tice's pic under that tree? They just cleared it and actually felt the roof get a slight kiss as she drove through...
