We said our goodbyes to Steve and Sandy and headed south toward Seattle. There were a few more things we wanted to do in the city before leaving Washington. Mike found a casino close to Seattle to park the MH for a few days. back to boondocking.
Tulalip casino is one of the nicest casinos we have been to. We didn't spend to much time inside, we did a quick walk thru and it was decorated beautifully, but the grounds we amazing.
Is that a walleye in the middle picture?
After setting up the MH we walked over to Cabela’s just in case there was something we needed, and because we did not see enough wildlife in Canada and Alaska we checked out the mounts they have.
Sunday morning we went on the Boeing factory tour in Everett, which was only a few miles from the casino.
The Boeing Dreamlifter is a modified 747-400 passenger airplane that can haul more cargo by volume than any airplane in the world. It is the primary means of transporting major assemblies of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner from suppliers around the world to the 787 final assembly site in Everett, Wash. This reduces delivery times to as little as one day from as many as 30 days.
We toured the factory where they build and test the famous Boeing aircraft, the world's number one aerospace company, so they tell us. This amazing 1.5-hour tour showcases the 747, 767, 777 aircraft used worldwide and the Dreamliner which is currently in production, all housed here in the world's largest building.
At one time rain clouds actually formed in the Boeing plant before an air circulation system was installed.
No cameras were allowed on the tour. The building is huge, they have everything a person needs, restaurants, post office, dry cleaners, doctors and things I can’t remember, on site. There is someone working on the planes 24/7.
Mike enjoyed the tour more then I did, but it was fascinating.
Another fun day on the road.
