95 going south is very scenic but so is 12 up over Lolo Pass. There’s some great NF campgrounds along the Lochsa river. We stayed at one last year I believe it was Gateway Wilderness or something like that. At the junction of 93 is Travelers Rest, an old Lewis and Clark stop. You can go south from there to Salmon Idaho which has things to see and do. Then you can continue south to Stanley or Ketchum or whatever. I’ve always found good boondock areas in Idaho and lots of free sanidumps.

We left Clarkston this morning. Before leaving we looked at the map, focusing on Hwy 95 south. Got lucky and googled places around Riggins Idaho, we found a interesting park. I called and talked to Bob he and his wife have had this property on the Salmon River since 1960. It’s one of the most beautiful rv parks we’ve ever been in. Bob is the nicest man you could ever want to meet. The stories he told me about the history here with his family will amaze you. Oh and its a full hook up park, maybe 20 sites? And it’s honer system payment. You pay when you leave, no host just put your envelope in the box when you leave. I will be coming back. It’s called Riverside RV Park in Riggins Idaho, google it. Bob gave us a lot of advice on things to do around here. Tomorrow we’re going to a creek Bob told us about for finding Garnets. Here’s a picture from our door looking at the salmon river. Another interesting thing Bobs dad is living on the property, he’s a 93 year young WWII vet that landed on Iwo Jima Bob says the average life span of a vet that landed on that beach was 38 Seconds. Within minutes of setting up and just before we were going to make a sandwich, Bob brought us fresh tomatoes from his dads garden.

Well we left Riggins Last Saturday morning. Great area and we will be going back. If your ever there ask Bob how to get to the place on The Little Salmon river for Garnet hunting. We had a few people mention it. I asked Bob how to get there. He looked at his watch and said I have 1 hour and 6 minutes until I have to pick up my grandson and take him on a fishing trip, follow me and I'll show you. I said no we don't want to put you out. He wouldn't change his mind. So we followed him about 10 or 12 miles up the Little Salmon river. We stopped and he showed us the trail down to a bunch of rocks. He started picking up little Garnets. He said if you search hard enough you can find them the size of your finger tip. So he left and we went to work. Found plenty of them, the biggest was about 1/2" but I kept digging under a few huge rocks. I found a lot of 3 to 4" rocks with Garnets inside, very beautiful and exciting. So when we left Riggins we didn't have a destination. We drove south on 95, we kept seeing lots of boondocking spots along HWY 95 right next to the river. We probably only drove about 40 to 50 miles when we saw a spot that was to good to pass up. We boondocked on the river for 2 nights. From there we decided to start making our way home, my wife's ribs were hurting so much from her fall and it didn't seem to be getting any better. So Monday morning we drove a long way. We stopped for the night at Burn's RV park in Burns Oregon. Let's just say I would never stay there again. I've never met such rude RV park owners in my life. We woke up and drove down HWY 395 to Susanville Ca.We went up to Eagle lake got a nice spot. Next morning it got down to the mid 30's. I found out I had a problem with my Diesel truck. It wouldn't start until 2 that afternoon. I tried plugging in my block heater and it didn't work. So yesterday morning at 5:30 A.M I put my Mr. Buddy heater under my oil pan. I went through two propane bottles, The truck finally started at 11:00 A.M. We hooked up and got home last night at 6 P.M.
I want to thank you all for your help and advice. We weren't able to visit all of the places but they are on our list for another trip.
