Sep 16, 2016 - Idaho 2016

Second stop in our 2016-2017 adventure is a return trip to the Boise, Idaho area, and a visit with Larry's sister Debbie, and brother-in-law, Bob. It's always a pleasure to spend a few days with them, and this trip was no different. Because there was a hornets' nest in their back 'forty,' where we usually park, we parked in their front driveway. They were concerned about the noise from the road out front, but in the nighttime hours, there was little to be concerned about on this country farm road. I was able to order a few things for us...

Sep 22, 2015 - McCall, ID

We got up early on Tuesday morning. Low and behold the hydraulics worked. The bedroom slides came in and we were on the road early. The day was beautiful. We headed south on US 95. Just before we got to Lewiston, we had a beautiful view of the Snake and Clearwater Rivers, Lewiston, ID and Clarkston, WA. The Clearwater comes out of the mountains in central Idaho, joins the Snake river at Lewiston/Clarkston. The Snake then heads west to Kennewick, WA where it runs into the Columbia River. Coming down into Lewiston was a long 7 or 8 mile steep...

Jul 21, 2014 - Nampa, Idaho

July 18-21, We stopped for a visit with Larry's sister, Debbie, and husband Bob, in Nampa, Idaho. We had a very nice visit with them, capped off by dinner at the crab shack in Boise the night before we left. The Boise area is a nice oasis in the midst of desert dryness, and it was a pleasure to relax and renew for a few days before the official start of our adventure. Thank You, Bob and Deb!

Nov 18, 2013 - Garrity RV Park

Between moving errands, we moved to the Garrity RV Park in Nampa. We needed to dump our waste tanks and decided to just relocate to Nampa for our final night in the area. The moving is complete and Bev & I are anxious to get back to our life on the road before the cold overtakes us.

Sep 23, 2013 - Arrived in Nampa, ID

We arrived in Nampa, ID just in time to join in the celebration of John's 12th Birthday. It's been 3 1/2 years since we've seen the grandkids and have they ever grown!! Before the night was over, Jacob was questioning if we were going to be there for his birthday Oct 8. It's great seeing everyone again and I guarantee it's not going to be as long between visits (if I can help it). In the meantime, Jennifer and Christi went to WI to visit relatives and celebrate Aunt Betty's 86th birthday (my dad's sister). Sandy also visited from FL. It...

Aug 20, 2012 - Boise Bound

Today we left for the Boise area (Nampa & Meridian), a short 3 hour drive over more lava flows of southern Idaho. We set up camp and went for lunch. Our RV park had a lot of workers with families, some travelers like us and some permanents. There was an amusing trailer that had an A/C unit strapped on top. I don’t think they were going to be traveling much. We headed over to visit our friends, the Archuletta’s (formerly of Buena Park, CA) for an evening of laughs. We originally met them at Silent Valley, friends of friends, and love hanging...

Jun 14, 2012 - "Nampa Nights"

Tonight is our last night at Gowen Field RV Park and as good fortune would have it, we were able to go back to Nampa to hear our friend Steve perform with the band, High Street he’s been a member with for several years at “Nampa Nights” in the middle of down town! But before leaving, we did manage to get in another evening with Linda and Steve in another suburb of Boise, called Meridian at the Basque restaurant, Epi’s. It lived up to its reputation and more. What a delightful evening we spent together and enjoying the wonderful flavors of...

Jun 3, 2012 - Another Fun Birthday Celebration

Another wonderful weekend in the Boise area! We started off on Saturday having Scott and Rick over to dinner here at the RV. Like many folks who have never seen the inside of these things, they were pretty amazed at the creature comforts and how spacious it is compared to what they thought it would be like! We had a great time and visit and meal – and later this week we’ll be seeing them again to help Rick celebrate his birthday at a local restaurant! Today we drove over to Linda and Steve’s to go with them, the kids and grandkids out to...

May 28, 2012 - Such a Memorable Memorial Day!

Based on the weather not cooperating with our original plans to visit Sun Valley with Linda and Steve over the holiday weekend, we managed to get in some great quality evenings with them on Friday and Sunday! And we also got together with Scott and Rick and met Scott's sister Terry and her boyfriend Richard for a delightful breakfast on Saturday and then were invited to Terry’s home for a barbecue on Monday - see why this is a Memorable Memorial Day? First Spudology 101 second to last question: The world's largest potato weighed? a) 4...

Oct 13, 2011 - Nampa, ID

Arrived at sister Gwynne's today and figured out my trailer was too long to park in front of their house. Nice park down the street some, so I will stay there. Will be here for a couple of days and then go on over to Burns, OR for a visit with cousin's Glen and Glenda and daughter Jen. Then it is home to my sweetie Kathy. She has been working hard while I have been out traveling, so I am anxious to hear all about it.

Sep 24, 2011 - RV "check engine light"

We left Bend, OR today. Just outside of Burns, OR the RV started to act "funny". It almost totally lost power climbing hills and eventually the Check Engine Light came on. We were in the middle of nowhere with no cell phone service and the two little towns we went through on the road had no gas station. So we just kept driving for 114 miles. When we got to Nampa, ID we called the Ford dealer in Meridian and they gave us an appt for Monday morning. So we found a campground in Nampa. ...
