This was a trip that I almost wish I had not gone on as it was plagued with troubles from the beginning. The original plan was to fly to Seattle and go Whale Watching and visit the North Cascades National Park as well as the Future of Flight museum in Everett over the weekend.

Due to poor weather, whale watching was cancelled before I ever left Oklahoma. To further complicate things, Southwest airlines had major problems getting me to Seattle which has left me of the opinion that I will never fly Southwest again. Their plane went mechanical in Oklahoma City and it was a nightmare from there.

I did fulfill one bucket list item – Visiting the Future of Flight Museum. The Future of flight Museum also has an option to tour the Boeing facility. The tour was very cool, but no cameras allowed! It involves a bit of walking, but nothing strenuous. Checked the North Cascades National Park off my list as well. The most important milestone of this trip was getting state #50 – Idaho. I had not visited Idaho yet, so I went to eastern Washington and stayed in Spokane. I tried my best to make lemonade out of lemons.
