I think I could live here if there was cell phone service

We are currently in a little town called Blanchard in Idaho. This is about 30 miles north of Coeur d'Alene. We've been here since Saturday. We are staying at a big golf & recreation area called Stoneridge. These folks had a booth at the FMCA Rally we attended in Indio, CA a couple of months ago and were giving away a free week to listen to their sales pitch.

There are condos, duplexes, homes and the Motorhome Village. This is really a very impressive place. It has been around since 1996. Everything is really well maintained. The people have been very friendly. The RV community is close knit. It is a little early in the season, so there are only a hand full of RVer's here. But, of those we have met are very nice and enthusiastic about this place. One couple have come back every summer for 7 years now.

I could live here, maybe, but not for quite a few years. JC and I have too many bucket list items to fulfill before we set any kind of roots anywhere. It is a little far from any major city. And, for the time being there is no cell phone service. At least no AT&T or Verizon. We are using our Verizon air cards for a sluggish and sometimes non-extintent internet access, but no phones. The weather, scenery and people make this an inviting place. We have been walking to the club house and using the free wifi to get business taken care of.

Today we played a round of golf. The views and grounds here are really green and....pretty. Played lousy golf and had a great time! Tomorrow we will take a motorcycle ride to see Coeur d'Alene. The weather is just perfect. We are happy campers. More to come.
