We stayed overnight in the Camping World parking lot because they had dedicated spots with electric, the first we had seen with electric. Plus its free to stay overnight in the CW parking lots. In the morning, I got the trailer ready to go quickly and ran into the store to get a few goodies. I came back and Becky went in because I did not get what was on her list. When she came back we said goodbye to our neighbors, the Evans. That took about two hours as Dave and I talked about solar panels and rigging the trailers for power and the ladies chatted away. Patrick was bored.
|The Evans' trailer. They bought it brand new but were waiting for parts that were supposed to be installed before they got it. The CW store forgot to order the part and they have been there two weeks now waiting.|
|The flag ripples in the breeze.|
|We crossed the border and ran north along the Snake River once again.|
|Climbed out of the valley and the beautiful fur trees back to desolate scrub. I don't know haw the emigrates made it across the country or made repeated trips along the Oregon Trail.|
|We spotted these vines and they were everywhere. I don't know if it was a different way of growing grapes or it was a different vegetable/fruit.|

In the morning, Richie, Tara and the girls stopped by to see us before they ran up to Whistler for a few days to ride mountain bikes. We pumped out the trailer, helped Tom clean up and parked the trailer in a semi permanent spot and got settled in. If it was warmer here I wouldn't mind staying but I have had a sweat shirt on everyday and I just don't like that in August. Love being around good friends and catching up. Kathy is keeping us well fed and packing on the weight with her constant cooking and its always delicious! So glad we made it out to Washington and half the trip is over.
