Travel from Wenatchee WA to Salmon Arm BC with OCD kid

Jump to last reply

Hello,
We are planning to drive from Wenatchee WA to Salmon arm BC on highway 97. My dilemma is that our teen has recently been diagnosed with OCD and takes a long time in the restrooms. So we have to plan stops where we will not be causing long lines whilst our teens in the washroom. Please any ideas on places to stop would be much appreciated. ( Places that have lots of restrooms so that we can get by without causing problems)
Thank you

    We travel often in that part of Washington and British Columbia, and I can't remember having to wait in line for access to a toilet.

    Look for toilets by the side of the road. In Washington toilets are often provided for people engaged in fishing and other outdoor activities. If you send the lad to an outhouse he may finish his business faster that usual.

    When you pass through towns, look for signs indicating the location of a public toilet or park. The parks in towns often have public toilets.

    In addition, McDonald's is a good place for a rest stop and a clean bathroom. You can enjoy a cup of coffee while your son whiles away the afternoon in the bathroom. Sixty miles north of Wenatchee there is a McDonald's in Brewster and 30 miles north of Brewster there is a McDonalds in Omak.

    Fifty miles north of Omak, Osoyoos BC is a town with many services, including a McDonald's. As you continue on you will pass through Oliver, Okanagan Falls, Penticton, and other towns that have loads of services.

    PS In my experience, teenage boys don't have to have OCD to cause them to spend too much time in the bathroom.
