Mar 23, 2020 - Jerome, ID

Ryan Smith had the work done on our rig in about 3 hours, doing it himself. He is a treasure!. We headed to Jerome/Twin Falls KOA. We used many KOA's as were guaranteed they were open during this pandemic and Dale could make reservations on line. How things have changed though. We had to call the park as we were arriving so someone could meet us in front of the office, show us to our site and hand out any park materials. No more going into the offices to keep contact at a minimum. Small, but nice park. Before going into the park, we once...

Apr 21, 2019 - Working through Utah and Idaho

Sunday Happy Easter everyone! We just landed in Bothell (just north of Seattle). Here is what I wrote earlier, more to follow. The weather forecast wasn’t the greatest and we really needed some rest, so we stayed at Woody Mtn an extra day. A “young-ish” couple now owns the CG and they have a $5 million development plan for it. They want it to be the premier RV park/CG in Northern AZ. They are very nice folks, we enjoyed talking with them. AND – their breakfast burritos rival the best in Yuma!! We did make a return trip to the MH to drop...

Jun 11, 2012 - Headed into Idaho

#61 6/11/2012 Today was uneventful. We were going to head back part of the way we came home yesterday, but our GPS decided to follow the snake river instead. It was 50 miles longer, but a much easier trip, we didn't have to climb any major mountains! We landed in Jerome, ID at the KOA. The great thing, I got the night off, they have a little cafe here with some really good and reasonably priced meals. I enjoyed not having to cook tonight. No pictures today. 267 miles today

Oct 22, 2011 - Getting ready to head south

We are so please to see so many people checking in to see if there is a new post. Sorry we haven't posted anything in quite some time. We are making all the necessary preparations to spend the winter south of snow. Yes, we are going to try again! Hopefully we can stay this time! Rick is doing very well - he was released by the spine surgeon and his last blood test came out like an "A" report card! So migration is scheduled for the first week of November. Our plan is to stay in Needles CA at the Palms River Resort for the month of November...

Jun 9, 2011 - May 2011

Gosh, it's hard to believe that another month has slipped by. May was somewhat uneventful in that Rick's condition was pretty stable. He suffered from the back pain the whole month, but by the end of May he was down to less than half the amount of pain killers. His weekly blood tests showed continual improvement along with his energy level so we were finally able to discontinue all antibiotics on June 2nd. The central line in his arm got pulled on June 6th so he is finally a free man. No more waiting for me to cover and tape the blasted...

May 2, 2011 - What the month of April had to offer

It's been a month since we have made an entry and some of you may be wondering what's been happening. We have been living our lives around doctors and hospitals. Rick's back pain never got any better after our Emergency Room visit in Newport, so we had an appointment with his regular doctor on April 4. That's when everything started happening. After a week of finding some pain relief from seeing a local chiropractor and Dr. ordered blood tests, Rick had an upper GI scope, then a CT scan and finally an MRI and blood transfusion, ending in...

Sep 20, 2010 - Washington DC and NYC

On Monday, August 30th we boarded a very early (6:00 a.m.) Delta flight with Dan and Chris Norris headed for Washington, DC from Boise. We arrived in DC at around 3:00 p.m., caught a cab to Rick's sister's condo in Arlington VA. Sue and Walt Cheatham live on the sixteenth floor so we could see the Capital, Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Pentagon and Arlington Cemetary from their living room. After snapping these shots we headed out to try our hand at the subway system and begin our site-seeing adventure. We had...

Aug 8, 2010 - Highlight: A visit from Dan and Gail Brogden

This past week we became a three-body home again (Rick, me and Anna). Jamison went home to his mother and new step-father on Monday, August 2nd. We really enjoyed having him from July 21st through this past Monday, but also thanked the good Lord when his grandma Emily wanted him the night of the wedding and his father wanted him for the weekend July 30 through Aug 1. On that Saturday evening we enjoyed a pot-luck dinner for all the birthday people in our friendship group. Seven out of the twelve of us there have birthdays between July 25...

Jul 29, 2010 - Adventures before and after Lisa's wedding

Hello again! We have continued to stay busy since our little trip to Las Vegas. On July 14 we attended the annual Rotary picnic that includes a river boat ride on the Snake River. They take up to twelve people at a time up to Pillar Falls, which is just west of Shoshone Falls. At that point riders are let off to explore the river area, then we enjoy the scenic veiw back to Centennial park on the south side of the canyon. The view of the Perrine Bridge from the water still almost takes our breath away. This year we were able to take two...

Jul 11, 2010 - A little vacation to Vegas

Well, on June 30th we decided to take a little trip to Las Vegas because a new Airline (Allegiant Air - in Twin Falls) was offering a package deal that was just too good to pass up. The package included Airfare, a show, lodging and airport transfers. They only fly Monday and Friday and their only destination from Twin Falls is Las Vegas. We booked our trip for July 5 through 9 and elected to stay at the Aria hotel at the new City Center on the strip. It just opened up in December. It was wonderful to be able to fly direct/non-stop and get...
