Drive here from Salt Lake City was pretty uneventful. It was 217 miles and we stopped at a rest stop and had chicken salad that Barb had made this morning before we left the campground in Pocatello.
Bob happened to read the directions to get to today's campground and the warning about the last 3 miles. Their recommendation was a disconnect the car and drive it in front of the RV because the road was 3 miles of county maintained road. It was a horrible, rock/gravel covered road that was the dustiest road we've seen in a long time. Bob had put the cover on the car when we stopped for lunch - thinking that the problem was the gravel. But we soon discovered that the real problem was the dust.
As we checked in the owner says to me, I guess you didn't see the warning about driving your tow vehicle in!! You know you can't wash it here - we're on an aquifer and just can't have any vehicle washing!! I said that it was fine and we'd get by.
We drove into town and found a Walmart (for groceries) and a car wash (for the dust). As we were coming back to the camp ground, when Bob switched from high beams to low beams, I noticed that my side of the road did not seem to be lit quite as well as normal and sure enough, when we check our low beam bulb on the passenger's side is out.
Once you get out from the towns like we are here, the stars just seem so much brighter and bigger. Feels like you can almost reach out and touch them - after all we're almost 1 mile higher than we are at home.
