39 - 12 Tribes Resort & Casino, Omak Washington

Arrived back in the US on Friday 8/19th. 😁Even though I knew that no chicken, eggs or produce can cross the border based on not getting checked the 3 previous crossings I still had uncooked eggs. We were checked and they took them, small price to pay for being back in the lower 48. 

We stayed at the 12 Tribes Resort and Casino RV Park which was basically a parking lot. But it was very nice and had wonderful views. Abby was able to walk around off-leash so she liked it. But it was HOT .... 96 degrees. Though only 20% humidity so much different than Florida.

The first night we were there we went to the Loggers Pub at the Casino for Prime Rib Friday and finally Anita's birthday dinner. They all had prime rib and I had pot roast. We went to the casino afterwards but Mike and I did not stay long. Besides just feeding my money to the slot machines it was smokey. There is not any "no smoking" in Indian Casinos so not something Mike and I like much.

On Saturday 8/19 Mike spent a lot of the day on the roof trying to "fix" the satellite. We are getting satellite but not HD or the local channels. Fixed some stuff but not all.

Decided to eat in the RV and then played Golf (cards) with Jim and Anita afterwards.
