And this has been the lowest we’ve seen lately… actually saw $3.95 for gas and $4.33 for diesel North of I-10 in Florida a few days ago… Eek!

Looking back…

In 2007 we found ourselves stopping in Cashmere (WA) at the foot of the Cascade Mountains. We were actually headed for a festival in Leavenworth and, instead, spent the majority of the day in charming Cashmere.

If the name sounds familiar to you, perhaps you’ve had some candy from Aplets & Cotlets Candy Kitchen? It didn’t take us long to find our way there and view candies being made. And, of course, we tried all the free samples! 🙂

There are a handful of antique shops and malls in Cashmere. One in particular had a diner inside that offered “spirited” chili! In addition to antiques, there are several wineries in the area. However, if you are planning to visit those, I would definitely recommend more than a day-trip.

Another stop we made was the Cashmere Museum & Pioneer Village, which is a great attraction for the admission price (I see the current price is still only $4-5). There are twenty buildings on the grounds and, honestly, I wish we would have had more time to really soak up the history that day.

If you find yourself in this region, make sure you plan to stop in Cashmere… especially if you have a sweet-tooth! 😉

If you find yourself near Brundidge (AL), you may want to stop and see the Johnston Peanut Butter Mill and visit some of the antique shops in this small town.

In the late 1920s, J.D. Johnston (a native of Brundidge) create a machine to make peanut butter and started one of the first commercial peanut butter mills in the U.S. At one point, the mill was shipping out over two million jars of peanut butter a week. The original mill (above) is a museum, open during the annual Peanut Butter Festival (October) and select Saturdays.

The area also has a number of antique shops and “malls” to visit. But be forewarned, this is a small town and not big rig friendly. So if you are just passing through, you may want to find a campground to unhook and take the tow.
