Hank – We arrived in Palouse and were pleased with what we found. The Palouse Caboose has great food and drinks. There’s a public bathroom downtown and at the city park that are open 24 hours. And we can camp at the Lion’s Club campground just across the river for $7.00. Pay the lady at the Palouse Market.
We met Jason and Rani Lucas of Washougal. They had their dog, Mijo, with them. We got to talking with them about our adventure and I asked if I could take a picture of us with their dog. “Why?” Jason asked. I told him about Gunnar’s idea of hauling a dog on the trip and my idea for adopting a dog for a day. He thought that was pretty funny and let us have at it. Mijo was not as into it as much as we were but he didn’t complain. While Kathy and I ate dinner we were wondering where we would camp the night. I asked Jess, our waitperson at the Palouse Caboose, if she knew people. She said she did. I asked her if she could find out where we could camp overnight since it’s not allowed in the city park. She went back to talk to people she knew and came back with the news about the Lion’s Club campground. How cool is that? The Palouse Caboose will be open for breakfast in the morning so we’ll be back tomorrow. Tomorrow will be a lazy 15-mile day to Pullman.
Kathy – Overall, it was a wonderful day. We did 35 miles total. We met many nice people, but the Palouse Caboose has some of the best food and people in the area. Kim, the owner was so welcoming. If you are in the neighborhood, be sure to check it out!. Good Night. 🙂
