Aug 17, 2018 - Brigham City, Utah

< I-70 from Moab I-70 westbound from Moab is a desolate place with no services for 106 miles. It is just barren rock for miles. At one point, it cuts through a reef that took several years to build a road through. In 1970, two lanes of I-70 were completed through the reef. The other two lanes were completed in 1980. Brigham City: Stopped here for two nights at the Golden Spike RV Park. This is where the builders of the Union Pacific RR coming from the east met the builders coming from the west to join the tracks for the first...

Sep 19, 2017 - Hanging out in Brigham City, Utah

We arrived in Brigham City, Utah last Thursday (the 14th).We traveled South on Hwy 84, the trip was uneventful, we ran into some rain but over all it was a good trip. Our friend JD is here & we've been able to go out for meals a couple of times with him. Its good to spend a little time with him & enjoy a few laughs. Pete & I have spent a little time going in & out of some antique stores, have seen some really cool stuff (we joke about how we still own some of the things we see in the stores). We will leave here this Friday...

We left San Diego Sunday, Sept 17 and spent the night in Mesquite, NV then onward to the Brigham City KOA near the Great Salt Lake. Our next stop was to be Yellowstone then the Tetons but snow came early to that area so we decided to spend an additional night in Brigham City and keep south of snowy areas. Here are the top 5 attractions in the Brigham City: Brigham City's Temple(tours Fri & Sat tours), Brigham City's Museum and Gallery, The Box Elder Museum (located in the basement of the Senior/Community Center) and The Bear River Migrating...

Fall 2017

May 31, 2016 - Brigham City, UT

We had a relatively short drive today of 3 hours. We knew we were going over the worst of the Rockies when it had an area to put the chains on your vehicle. Luckily, they weren’t needed today. The scenery just got more and more beautiful the closer we got to Utah. They have stunning mountain views on I-80 and I-84. And before we knew it we were down the mountain passing Ogden, UT and into Brigham City for a few days. We’re staying at the Golden Spike RV Park. Everything around here is Golden Spike something, as this is close to the...

Sep 26, 2015 - Nampa ID to Brigham City, UT

We got up early Saturday morning, ate another free breakfast, down to freightliner to pick up the rig, paid the bill (OUCH) and then headed to Brigham City, UT. Everything looked good, making good time through mostly farm country of questionable sceni value, so no photos. We got to a rest stop just forty miles west of Twin Falls, ID. Stopped, took Parker for his noon walk, then Bob decided to fill the windshield washer fluid reservoir which is in the generator compartment. He extended the generator slide with no problem. Filled the...

Pete & Jan's Travels

Jun 14, 2015 - Brigham City, UT.

We are spending the next couple days in Brigham City. Brigham lies on the western slope of the Wellsville Mountain. The two things it is noted for is their peaches and it is the headquarters of ATK Thiokol, the company that created the solid rocked boosters for the Space Shuttle. We will take a ride out to the Golden Spike National Park while we are here. It is hot during the day and cools down at night. The kids are spending a lot of time in the pool. Hopefully it will get a little cooler as we head further north.

May 6, 2015 - Brigham City UT - Walmart Parking Lot

Haven't stopped for the night at a Walmart for quite a while, but its still a cheap way to camp. Couldn't get a spot by the grass this time, so it wasn't as good for Bridget. On the other hand, it was pretty rainy that day, so she wouldn't have been outside much anyway. She did have some friends to watch in the field next to the parking lot. Horses were pastured over there and Bridget kept busy watching them.

Retired at Last!

Sep 27, 2014 - Fall is Here With a Vengence

We held our breaths this morning as we put the jacks up, and they worked just fine, although there is a noise we have not heard before, sort of metal on metal. That can't be good. I will double check the fluid in the morning to make sure it is ok. The left front jack appears to be leaking fluid although Mark said it was not excessive. Something we will have to take care of in Texas. -- A weather front has moved into this part of the country and some much needed rain has been falling steadily. We had a long travel day today of around 240...

Pretty Damn Nice!

May 7, 2014 - Brigham City, Utah

We are now in Brigham City, Utah, we left Salina two days earlier than we had originally planned. We just decided that we needed to move on (another way of expressing that there wasn't much for us to do in Salina). So, here we are for a week. We are staying at the Golden Spike RV Park, we have stayed here before, but its been a few years. This time though, we'll take a little more time to see whats in the area. We had a nice trip here, traffic got a little busy in Salt Lake City but nothing Pete couldn't handle dragging this big ole box...

Apr 22, 2014 - Just past Salt Lake City

April 21: From Moab, Utah to Brigham City, Utah Yesterday morning we pulled out of Moab in shorts & t-shirts, as it was nice and sunny outside. We were able to pass along our nice camping spot to another motorhome who was going to be there for about 10 days. (There are many BLM sites that are available for tent campers but very few for trailers or motorhomes. Our spot was really nice & long for a larger motorhome.) We were amazed to go up to almost 8000 feet in our travels today. And also that Salt Lake City is so big. It took us an hour...

Apr 4, 2014 - Green grass of home and Snow-caps - I-15 totally awesome

April 4 Drove from 9:00 am till 3:00 pm.(410 km, 256 miles) We stopped for lunch at Wall-mart, and filled up with Gas at Chevron. During most of the day it reminded us the Fraser valley with the farm land, with baby calfs and the mountains. Some mountains had a dusting of snow, while others almost look like MT Baker. We pulled into the Golden Spike RV Park($32), (because of its name, CP Rail ) Awesome Wifi and Cable.. Snow cap mountains are the back drop for this small community. It does have a Wall-mart. Summary: this is a great hwy to...
