This morning we left M.Vernon and drove around looking for RV part shops.. there are heaps here.  Steve had not been successful getting the generator to go which supplies power for us separate to the battery and is quite important for us.
 
He found someone who got it going ... it had just clogged up through lack of use and now runs perfectly.
 
We then headed about 40 mins south to Everett to the Boeing factory and we went to Future Flight which is the tourist centre there. We went on the most fascinating tour we have ever been on of the huge factory building where they are building 747 cargo planes, another assembly line of 777s and finally and most spectacularly the new 787 Dreamliner which has not even flown yet. There it was sitting inside, near the huge doors, all painted in Boeing colours looking ready to go. However it is far from ready inside! What was incredible was that all the people involved in the production of the aircraft, from all departments were all there on the factory floor working on laptops on make shift desks!
 
We spent about 3 hours there as there was so much to see.
 
We then headed off to find somewhere to stay for the night and ended up in a state park camp ground south of Seattle and a little north of Tacoma.  Nothing very flash but Steve was not feeling well with a very heavy cold and we needed to get sorted for the night.
