We Have Arrived

Another day of smooth sailing, with only a little rain the last 60 miles. And there was no screaming as we entered the snowshed.

Heading North: Day 4

Departed Mountain Home at 8AM (MT) stopped at Camping World in Meridian ID then rolled across into Oregon; into Washington. We were briefly above the snow line on I-84.

These are mountains of Wallowa-Whitman National Forrest as seen from I-84 just before reaching Baker City OR.

We are hold up in Prosser WA for the night. Filled the propane tank and was stunned by the $2.54 a gallon. Had some local pizza for dinner. A good day!

Heading North: Day 3

An easy day on US-93 northbound through Nevada. It is amazing what a good job Nevada does with their roads. We are safe and warmer in Mountain Home ID tonight.

More Nevada mountain scenery.

These roads are not exactly ideal for motorcycles.
This picture was taken the morning of day 4, welcome sunshine but the temperature is just above freezing, burrrrrrrrrrrrr! On the upside look at that RV site, now that is a pull-thru. There are several feet behind the Jeep and in front of the coach too. The pavement is dead on level and there is 20ft of lawn between each pad, wish all of the RV Park industry could see this. Kudos to Mountain Home RV Park in MH Idaho.

Heading North: Day 2

The road less traveled, less drama too. The scenery is not what generally comes to mind when I think of Nevada, and in a good way. Today was smooth and the climate has changed. Yesterday it was in the low 90s and today, from a morning start in the 70s, it rose briefly. Then it began to decline and about 25 miles from Ely NV it dropped from the 50s into the 30s and then rose to the 40s again. Still a good days travel.

Heading North: Day 1

It has been interesting, forgot how bad California is at maintaining their roads, then there is the wind which tried to rip the slide-out topper off the side as we approached Boulder City NV. With help from Scott we secured it for the remainder of the day. If the wind keeps up in the morning I'll have to tie it off again.

Shed Shuffle Second Stage

A smooth start to the day, underway at about 8:30am, turn left and then right.

A tight fit, but with much help no scratches, bents or blood.

Nothing stopping us but good sense or if you like if you get it going fast enough it will fit.

Bare bones, but that won't last if you noticed the stacks of GVS under the awing from yesterdays post.
Many thanks to all who helped: Paige, Jane, Scott, John A., John W., Dwight, and Ray.

Shed Shuffle First Stage

So it begins, we need more storage space and a new park resident shows up with a shed that won't fit his site; we make an offer and find a buyer for our shed. New guy has a shed built on his site. We unload our shed, placing all our GVS under the awning, to and move it to make room for the next shed.

A short ride and a couple of turns followed by a safe landing. Once the new shed is loaded with all his the GVS we will execute stage two, stay tuned.
