How did you cracked the fender???
My camping spot at Ft Welikit was narrow with trees near the front on both sides. I don't think I could have gotten in the site except the camping site across the street was vacant. I pulled into the spot across the street and backed in. I thought I was done and then my wife and I decided we needed to move over about 1'. I pulled out a little and backed up again, turning the wheel right and then left to get the trailer to over over. I forgot about the tree on the passenger side until I heard it. I said it in an earlier post, I was lucky not to damage the trailer. anyway, Bertha (my truck) is fixed now>







If that wasn't enough, I had a tire going down on the trailer too. Durn nail!


Some days are tough.

When it was time to go home, we couldn't get out of Idaho without 2 unplanned stops. The first one was south of Cascade at the Payette River. Think class V rapids for miles and miles.





The next stop was at Twin Falls, ID. We stopped to look at the falls. We didn't know about the canyon and the bridge jumpers. We ended up spending nearly 3 hours here.

Note the golf course with holes on both sides of the river.




The ramp on the right edge of the canyon, in the upper right of the picture, about 1 mile away is where Evel Knievel launched his attempt to jump the canyon 40 years ago.








Here is a short movie that shows some trip highlights including the bridge jumpers.

After Twin Falls, it was a long ride home (South Carolina).

Great trip report. Right now we're not too far from you, Lake Greenwood.

Wow, what a great report. Sounds like a trip we would love. We like off roading and four wheeling. Bring a RZR and our Jeep with. Thanks for sharing. So beautiful.

Over-all, did you make reservations for all of your campground stays? Planning on doing a 2 month Colorado / Utah trip in 17'.

Just finished up a 23 day (4 campgrounds) to Northern PA. and VT. The 3 state parks (Worlds End PA., Jamiaca VT & Half Moon VT.) were half full during the week and filled up on the weekend. The private park (Lake Dunmores Kamperville) was just about full on the weekend. I had made my reservations 8 months ago. But planning a longer trip and being retired by then and more flexibility in a trip, was wondering if I need to do reservations.

I had reservations in Custer, Cody, and Salmon - the places where I knew I was going to stay for a spell. The campgrounds in Custer and Cody filled up every night. The campground in Salmon was not as busy.

For our other stops, the one where we were "on the road", I generally would start looking for a campground using RVparky around 200P. I would call ahead and verify there would be openings. The KOA guys are especially nice by saying things like, "if you get here by 500p I'll have a slot", i.e, I didn't have to make a reservation.

When we started this journey almost 2 years ago, I tried to plan the details for our trips and have campground reservations for every stop. I have learned to be more flexible with my daily start and end times, so reservations for stops along the way do not fit with the uncertainty of how far we will drive. My wife thinks the campgrounds we have found along the way are better than the ones I planned for.

Hey Johnny!

I sure miss work - NOT!

I have had my trailer, whoops, camper, since APR 2013. Suzy and I like to stay out about 6 weeks at a time and we like to go west. I write trip reports after I get home because it seems to extend my trip (and fun). I've got a couple of more reports on this site that I will list below. I post a lot of pics on Facebook because it is easy to post stuff as it happens, and my family can follow along. I'd be interested in knowing what you guys are planning.

I found my pics for the campground in Big Timber, MT. It was a shaded, pull-through, 90' long, in a campground with a Lazy River. Woo-woo, it was good.
