    Just stepping out from lurking to share a few thoughts

    I took a look in the Google Books archives to see if the motel is mentioned in older travel guides. I did see a reference to Fodor's Pacific Northwest & Alaska on the Loose (1995) indicating the motel is the cheapest in the area. It doesn't seem widely mentioned, although that may reflect the limits of what Google Books has scanned. I also tried the National Parks website on wayback.org and didn't see any reference to the motel there. At first glance, this doesn't seem like a vacation destination that could be widely discovered easily...

    Does anyone know if local hospitals were contacted when Lyle was found? I know Grays Harbour Hospital is about an hour away and Olympic Memorial in Port Angeles is about 2 hours away. There is also the Forks Community Hospital. He might not have had a lot of belongings with him if he'd recently been released from a hospital stay.

    One last thing... I know a lot of hotels used to provide complimentary newspapers. I wonder if that was commonplace at this motel, or maybe it was too budget for that? It could explain two copies of the newspaper (if that wasn't an error)... Lyle goes out to buy one, finding a free one when he returns.
