The house is clean now, or at least as clean as it is likely to get. However, we are still stuck at the apartment. It seems that nowhere in Seattle can one purchase a car top carrier that does not require a roof rack to mount it to the vehicle. Dustin and Steve are currently working on a method to attach it at the car using synch straps. I still hold out hope of getting on the road today. We don’t have much choice really. Our lease is up today and we need to get to somewhere we can camp by tonight.
