2018 trip to start May 2nd

For our 2018 trip, we are planing on seeing our friends in Arizona, then heading to Florida for our grandson's graduation.  Our daughter and family will be traveling with us in their RV from Florida to Asheville, NC for zip lining.  The kids will return home from Asheville and Randi will head to Dublin OH to visit our other daughter and her family.  Next we are headed for Colorado to visit friends.  After Colorado we are tentatively thinking of going to Oregon to visit an old friend and from there we will head home. Of course we will be making lots of stops along the way to sight see.

Monday, August 9

We are home!!!! Most will agree that vacations are great, but it is always good to come home. We have had warm welcomes from our great neighbors and will be planning times with them soon to share stories of our adventures. Curt and Yvonne are spending an extra week in Bishop, CA, just relaxing and winding down before arriving home. We miss them very much and will be happy to have them next door again soon.

Love and thanks to all of you who have faithfully followed our blog. It was fun for us to know that you were tuning in to our travels. We’ll be doing some short trips in the near future (1-2 weeks), so we’ll be in touch and will let you know where and how we are.

Saturday and Sunday, August 7 & 8

These final few days were really tiring because of the winds, but none of this put a damper on our fabulous trip. Our dear friends, Yvonne and Curt, made it the trip of a lifetime for us. We are all, not only still speaking, but are even closer for having had this experience together

Friday, August 6

Ivan battled very strong winds today for 300+ miles. We were both pretty exhausted when arrived at our campsite in Fillmore, Utah. This is the time for decisions. Do we go with our original plan to stop at Mammoth, CA and fish for a couple of weeks, or do we head for home? I had been a bit “under the weather” for the last week (fine now), so we decided that we would fish on the next trip out.

Travel Day to Idaho, Thursday, August 5

We left Yellowstone this morning and drove 215 miles to Village of Trees RV Park in Declo, Idaho. Aaaah! The land of potatoes. The park is situated on the Snake River, which we were hoping to fish; however, it is too wide, too deep, too fast for our kind of fishing. We spent the afternoon catching up on the blog and watching the rain storm.

West Yellowstone & Laundry, Wednesday, August 4

A 6 mile drive into “town” included a walk along both sides of Main Street. We searched in shop after shop, only to find the same touristy junk in each. We did have a good time in a book store, where we each found something by our favorite authors.

The campground laundry was fully occupied this morning, so we decided to check it out when we returned this afternoon. Surprisingly, it was empty! Ivan helped me load 6 washers and I stayed to complete the task. The event that occurred next was one that definitely warranted a picture, but I couldn’t leave long enough to retrieve my camera. One of my washers had apparently been sabotaged by a previous user, leaving enough detergent in the dispenser to float the entire area! It was truly an “I Love Lucy” re-run! Soap suds were flowing out onto the floor. Quite a site! I returned to the RV (home) about 2 hours later with a report that it was a laundry experience from H---! Another adventure!
