OOPS–I had my “falls” wrong–the Cowboy pointed out Twin Falls is the navigation pain, not Idaho Falls!! Should have used the map when writing this blog!
Not quite all the way up the Boulder but back in Montana all the same.Montana has new state welcome signs–you can hardly read the “Montana”–wonder who created that one??
Although we tried to be quiet, starting a diesel engine ended that idea –Thursday morning at 5:30am the wheels were rolling–the Cowboy wanted to try and get to cooler country by days end. He drove and drove–600 miles which put us near Wells, Nevada. In 2008 when we owned a big Ford dually pickup and 34 foot 5th wheel we boondocked on BLM land just south of Wells, Nevada one cold night in late April. So, we tried that same spot again–we won’t do that with this rig again!!–The Cowboy had a difficult time maneuvering this loooong rig into that same spot but he persevered! We had a wonderfully quiet, restful, cooler night–no noisy air conditioner running all night.

What is this thing??
Once we were through Las Vegas it was smooth sailing–excellent roads, little traffic–easy driving up through Nevada.
Today our biggest city was Twin Falls and as always it was a pain to navigate–they need a bypass but with only two bridges spanning the Snake River that might be a long time coming. Check out John and Pam’s blog for some photos of one of those bridges–some people get to sight see when traveling! 😉
We like to travel the back roads but today we decided to try the freeway I–84 out of Twin Falls then I-15–busy, poor road conditions, construction–maybe we should stick to the back roads!! We started later this morning than the Cowboy likes–we dawdled–and by mid afternoon it was obvious if we made it up the Boulder today we would be driving it in the dark. So, we called the only RV park we really don’t mind using which is located in Dillon, Montana–Southside RV Park–and yes they had room as always for our 70 foot rig. Quiet, very clean, lots of green grass and trees–we don’t mind staying here and it’s an easy 3 hour drive to home. Plus Pizza Hut delivers! And this park is full tonight with snowbirds heading north!
The Cowboy is outside washing millions of suicidal bugs off our windshield. Emmi likes to ride up high so she can see–
And I am writing a blog. We will stop to visit Nat tomorrow on our way up the Boulder. I’ve had our internet/telephone reactivated but that doesn’t always mean it will be working–so if no blog appears, you will know why.
