Was it very buggy in the rainforest? Do you just use regular off for mosquitos?
Not at all.

Worst so far was Voyageurs. Off did not help at all- we came out of there 80% bite/20% skin.

Most people tend to have 100% skin in places where there should be skin. We were down to 20%, as 80% of was comprised of mosquito bites.

Just a reminder that you are less than 400 miles from the 5,000 mile mark, so maybe put that oil change into your itinerary

Even old cars are much more mileage when used for smooth highway driving.

according to the manufacturer.... Check with any decent mechanic and they'll tell its baloney. Check the oil yourself after 5k and see how dark it is

Day 22: Shabbos/ July 6

Location: Chabad of Downtown Seattle:
Rabbi and Rebbetzin Levitin were away for Shabbos but they still made sure all guests were taken care of with great food and company.
We enjoyed walking around Pike Place Market and the waterfront on Shabbos afternoon.

I was wondering the same when I was there. The ranger told me that it doesn't rain much in the summer it's their dry season.

Interesting. It's particularly dry in the PNW now so we thought it was related to that.
