Sep 5, 2017 - Down to Moscow, ID (Elks)

Today we traveled south to Moscow which is a University town, and 8 miles west in Washington is Pullman, also a university town. It was VERY SMOKY all the way there along grain growing farms & ranches with grass seed, hay & wheat all thru Coeur d’Alene Indian Reservation Land. We saw a couple of signs indicating the history of the region, McCroskey Park and Desmet Mission: McCroskey State Park occupies the rocky slopes of Skyline Ridge on Mineral Mountain, in a transitional zone between the Palouse prairie to the west (and south) and the...

Sep 21, 2012 - Exploring Moscow, Id and Pullman, Wa

We had an easy drive from Wallace, Idaho to our next stop - the university town of Moscow, Idaho. We flew out here about eight years ago to attend an RV conference known as RV Life on Wheels. The week-long conference was held on Moscow’s University of Idaho campus. It was a whirlwind of seminars that covered both technical and lifestyle issues all related to RVing. We didn’t even own an RV then but we were wowed. I think it was here that we finally decided that, yes, the fulltime RV lifestyle would be something we wanted to try after we...

Jan 7, 2012 - Idaho!

We woke up in Bozeman, MT and hit the road to start the drive to see Matthew’s brother Michael. The drive was beautiful. When we were crossing the border of Montana and Idaho, we stopped at a rest stop that you can’t even really call a rest stop. Right off the mountain highway (at mile marker 1) there was a huge ski hill. So the rest stop was actually a lodge and within feet of us, people were skiing and snowboarding. All we wanted to do was use the bathroom, and suddenly we were in the middle of other people’s vacations. We passed through...

Sep 26, 2009 - Bob and Norma and Moscow, Idaho

We left Usk, Washington and dropped down to Moscow, Idaho to see Norma and Bob. It's always great to visit the McCormicks. They give us the run of the entire lower level of their home and feed us extremely well. The weather was beautiful while we were there and the Latah County Fair was going on. It only lasts for 3-4 days and it is one of the only "Free" admission county fairs left in Idaho or Washington. It was nice to visit a small local fair again. You feel like you're "home". Then before we left, there was the Moscow "Saturday" Market....

Aug 19, 2008 - Friends in Moscow

The wind was completely calm by morning but a smoky smell was hanging over us and it was completely overcast. We pulled out about 8 and headed south for Moscow, ID. We had to drive thru Spokane and Barb wanted to go to the REI store there. She was tickled pink when she found a pair of pants just like she was looking for and so, if she’s happy, I’m happy. At least that’s what I’ve been told! In Spokane we got on a short stretch of freeway. That is the first real live freeway we have driven on in over 9000 miles. Holy Jumpin Jimminee do...

Sep 15, 2007 - Back to Visit Moscow, Idaho and the Bransons

We headed from Lewiston and our wonderful Snake River trip and went about 35 miles nort on US-95 to Moscow, Idaho where Dick graduated from the University of Idaho in 1966. We are visiting George and Becky branson. George was Dick's roommate at Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity for several years and they have remained in touch and we last visited them on our way back from Alaska in 1985. They own the Hillcrest Motel in Moscow and we are able to park the RV in the lot behind the motel. George and Becky's RV, a Foretravel is parked next to us and...

Jul 13, 2007 - Life On Wheels (LOW)

Moscow Idaho (pronounced Mosco like Bosco by the locals) greeted us with open arms to the mother of all LOW conferences, the six day high intensity happening. Our welcome on Sunday night set the stage for a week of workshops that would cover everything you ever wanted to know about RVing but were afraid to ask (and some things you would never have thought to ask). Ensconced in the parking lot with electricity, water and a "honey wagon" to carry off our leftovers (you figure it out), we enjoyed our friends and collapsed into bed after full...

Jul 7, 2007 - LOW (Life on Wheels) Conference

Hey we made it finally to the Idaho University campus in Moscow for the LOW conference! We had been talking about this for the longest time and now we could relax for a day or two before classes started. Registration was in a tent by the Kibbie Dome and the bookstore was in another tent near by. We were assigned a site in Lot B which was in the gravel parking area beyond the asphalt lot. A large generator was close by which we all were connected to. We had 30 amp power from 6 AM to 10 PM every day. Everyone was also instructed to come in...

Jul 6, 2007 - We made it to Moscow

We left Cranbrook at 10:30 a.m., stopping for fuel and B.C. cherries. It only took an hour to reach the border at Eastport. We didn't have quite as friendly a border guard this time, but they weren't too bad. One asked us if we had any bodies in back and another went into the trailer and checked the fridge and pantry for beef products (found none of course). A stop at Sandpoint, Idaho to visit the Coldwater Creek store was high in my priorities and we worked it into our lunch stop. We had a delicious lunch at a funky restaurant called Di...

Jul 18, 2006 - July 8-14, 2006 Moscow, ID

Then on (down the valley, through more amazing farmland) to Moscow, where we parked in the parking lot of the University of Idaho sports stadium along with 300 or so other rigs and spent a week at the Life on Wheels Conference. Moscow is a nice little town, so supportive of having all these RVers in town that they gave us a barbecue one night, and the University is a typical mix of old buildings and newer ones. The old ones are prettier. We spent a week going to 3-4 classes a day on subjects as diverse as brakes, generators and exercising...
