Seattle McDonald's

You know you're in Seattle when... the McDonald's has the usual trash can PLUS a recycle bin and a compost bin.  If only I would have had my camera...

Greg and I are staying with a family north of Seattle during our three weeks here.  But this afternoon we decided to head down to Seattle proper to stop by a couple backpacking supply stores.  We were mostly planning on window shopping, although we are looking at doing some backpacking in the future, so we're price checking and looking for specifics.  We stopped by two different stores this evening and had much fun!  Our second stop was the "Mother Ship" of the REI stores.  Talk about BIG!!!  We were there over two hours and never made it up to the second floor.

We also found out they have an ongoing scratch and dent sale in their basement.  Guess where we spent most of our time.... :)

Nice... what did you get?

We got a tarp to go under our small tent ($4) and a pair of pants for which I can fix the velcro ($7). We also got an inflatable sleeping pad that we hoped to fix. But it's not fixing too well. Over 50 small leaks and counting...
