Nov 19, 2018 - Ogden Utah

Not to much to report today, finally an uneventful drive with no encounters with other crazy drivers! We arrived at our destination at 4:45pm just minutes before the sun went down very tired. Todays long drive will cut down the very cold days remaining to 1 more at Beaver. After that we should not see any more mornings in the minus range for a few weeks. We woke up to -9 this morning back in Caldwell Idaho BRRRR. temp H 8C L-5C Sunny

Oct 5, 2018 - Ogden, UT

The wind and rain continued all night and into this morning. We finally got far enough west of it so see some sun. Once we hopped onto I-84 West in Utah and drove thru the gorgeous Utah canyons, the temps warmed up into the 50’s. I called this campground while we were stopped for lunch, and the lady on the phone assured me that the site she’d chosen for us was very spacious. NOT!!!! We are so close to our neighbor that we barely had room to open our slide outs. We do just barely fit in the site, but we have a tree, a sign, and several rigs...

Sep 14, 2018 - back to Ogden

After a big breakfast of eggs, bacon, and a fruit-covered crepe, I left Kemmerer about 11 AM to take the scenic route back to Ogden. It took over 3 hours, but it was on a two-lane highway into Utah and over the Wasatch mountains. I saw a lake (reservoir) that I might be able to kayak in and parts of the ride were scenic with actual trees! At the ridge, I was at about 9000 feet above sea level. After I got parked, a gentleman came along and introduced himself as Jay. He asked if I was a member of WINS so I asked him what made him ask that...

Sep 5, 2018 - Sierra RV

I had an appointment with Sierra RV for 2 PM today and was due at the Mobile Home/RV Park this afternoon but they let me come in early so I could find my spot and drop my car. Sierra is only 10 miles down the road! I spent the midday looking for a place to stay around Yellowstone but was not successful. Campgrounds are either closed for the season, close this weekend with no vacancies, can't handle my big rig, or cost way too much. I can go to try to get a site at a campground that is first come/first served but what will I do if I can't...

Sep 11, 2017 - Ogden UT

Mon, 11 Sep: May we never forget September 11, 2001... A travel day after fifteen days "vegging" at West Yellowstone. We thoroughly enjoyed our rest and relaxation, but it is time to get a move on. So, today we awoke our coach from her slumber and got ready to roll. And roll we did—280 miles of rolling. We got things ready for the road, checked and double checked our check lists, and eased out the deep forest. Bob drove the coach 2½ mile to a truck pull out while Sandi followed in the car. At the pull out we connected the car...

Jun 28, 2017 - Computer problems

June 28, 2017, Today was just a travel day with a night stop in Ogden, Utah. Everything was going smoothly until all of a sudden the computer quit. Power plug came out put it back in but no luck, no computer. Luckily we run 2 GPS’s butt we did stop and get the GPS out of the car. As soon as we checked into our campsite I asked the young man checking us in for a Best Buy. He gave us excellent directions so as soon as we were st up off we go. Computer OK, just need a new battery, they did not have any, so it was off to Batteries + about a...

Aug 27, 2016 - Ogden Utah, north of Salt Lake City

Short drive of 150 miles to camp 2 days. Drove into Salt Lake City and did the bus tour around town. On the way back we drove to Antelope Island state park. It is the largest island in the Great Salt Lake. It is home to buffalo, pronghorn antelope (which it is named after) mule deer and big horn sheep. We only spotted the buffalo while we were there. The area smelled like sulfur, the same way as Yellowstone.

Aug 1, 2015 - On to Ogden

We decided we'd park the coach at Century RV in Ogden for Saturday and Sunday nights so we'd have power for the refrigerator and we'd splurge on a motel for the three of us. After a long, hard driving day, we arrived in Ogden, got the coach set up, and checked into the Super 8. Not only are all the campgrounds booked out, but the Super 8 informed us they were sold out completely for Tuesday night as well. So, we decided to lock in 3 nights. At least, we knew we'd be comfortable and the coach was within walking distance when we needed...

Summer 2015 & Beyond

May 1, 2015 - Ogden, UT

Fri, 01 May: A beautiful drive, and then traffic... Despite being parked right on Price's Main Street the traffic did quiet down and we both had a restful nite. Staying "for free" at Wal*Mart does have its costs. First is the fact that we always go into the store and buy stuff. Second, it is usually noisy, and the Price Wally was no exception on either point. We awoke when we awoke and enjoyed a quiet breakfast. Since we hadn't moved out of "travel mode" or disconnected the car, getting ready to hit the road was fairly expedient. Checking...

2015 Travels

Sep 11, 2014 - Ogden, UT

Thu, 11 Sep: The last road day for a while... The temperatures dropped into the high thirties in Rock Springs, and we were boondocking. That means heat is limited to available battery power. We tend to leave the heat off until it is time to arise, so the extra blankets were very welcome around 0200. We awoke a bit after six, got the coach warmed up and boiled water for tea. Once our caffeine level was sufficiently high we rustled up breakfast and got things ready to roll. Since we were boondocking there was little to do so we rolled our...

2014 Travels

Jun 14, 2014 - A Train Day

Driving south from Pocatello on our way out of Idaho, we finally see the mountains that we had expected to see in Idaho. We head towards Utah and a day of railroad history. Our first stop is Promontory Point where, as anyone with any knowledge of railroading knows, is where the golden spike was driven which connected the lines from the east and the west to make the Transcontinental Railroad. The Union Pacific started from Omaha and the Central Pacific started from Sacramento, and while they missed their connection, the 2 groups managed to...
