Nov 24, 2014 - on the road-Helena to Fillmore,Utah

Stayed at Lincoln R.V. last night, got to 28F. Had both heaters on so it was comfortable. As Roy filled a 5 gallon water jug we even had coffee for the road,no food though. Some ice on the road in places in Montana, threatened to snow in Idaho-temps ran 28- 30 F.,traffic was sparse so we made good time. Salt lake city area traffic seems to start at the Utah border.I was surprised as it only took 1 1/2 hrs. to go through the city 4:30 to 6 p.m. so we decided to go further & made it to Fillmore. Opted to go with a R.V. park there so we could...

road trip-2014-2015

Nov 21, 2013 - We waited too long to fly south!

This morning, we were anxious to get on the road due to impending weather changes deteriorating in the Southwest. I had checked Gas Buddy last night and found Diesel for $3.59/gallon in Orem which was on our route of travel. A little ways off I-15 but worth it for 30 cents/gallon savings. Snow was flying as we passed through Salt Lake City, but it wasn't cold enough to stick to surfaces. It sure made a mess of the motorhome and car though. We had a nice pre-Thanksgiving lunch of Turkey and dressing at Cracker Barrel. There was intermittent...

Oct 23, 2009 - Surprise History in Fillmore

I used to work with a guy that loved to go to yard sales. He'd say "it's like going on a treasure hunt". I never really understood at the time but I was reminded of that today. We came to the town of Filmore just to stay the night and discovered a bit of history when we ventured out. But first a bit about our departure. We left Boise Thursday morning on schedule and pulled a fairly long trek into Utah driving 4 1/2 hours to the town of Perry. That's longer than we usually do but we wanted to make some time and it was fairly easy freeway...

We ran after the snake but it was to fast. It swam away in the stream then...

We stayed overnight in Heber City, UT right below the dam for the Jordanelle Reservoir. We did not know this when we checked in, as it was late dusk when we arrived at the campground. However, last night I observed huge sodium security lights on a hill above us and signs warning government property keep out near the campground. When I was out walking GG this morning I saw a gigantic hillisde of gravel and having passed the Jordanelle Reservoir just before our turn off to the campgound I used my brain even though it is retired and said oh...

Dec 29, 2007 - Sex, Politics,Religion and Weather

"They" say that after weather, the three most popular topics of conversation are sex, politics and religion. I offer the following: "May it please the gods, no more snow and ice til the effing politicians get more snow removal equipment on the roads!" Actually, the snow removal guys did a super job. There was a lot of snow when we woke this morning, and the weather channel, and the road reports didn't look promising. We debated about staying in Idaho Falls, but realized that it could be about three days til the predicted blizzard came and...
