Once we had most of the decals put up, we were ready to hit the road! A quick stop to grab Jason over by the Tacoma Dome, and a not so quick stop to get Maria in West Seattle and our van was complete! We made a stop once we got close to our hotel in Ferndale to eat some dinner at The Olive Garden (OG) to do some carb loading. I don't think our waitress got the memo that our table of six needed breadsticks to be continually restocked, they were being rather stingy with them. But that's ok, the Italian Sushi (as Jason renamed it) somehow filled our bellies and we were once again on our way.
