We pulled out of our site at the Air Force Base about 8 AM with about 330 miles to go. Before we even got off base we met our first screw ball driver. I’m in a left turn only lane and a bozo turns left with me from the right lane (straight lane only!). Scared the boo out of me when I realized what he was doing half way thru the turn. I almost ran into to him with my wide turn. The bozo. He heard my Bradley horns for sure. I could have called the military police and had him issued a ticket but I wasn’t going thru the hassle for me. Yes that is how it can be done aboard a base. Rank rules! Anyhow….We headed north on I-84 to Pocatello. Then I-15 to Idaho Falls, route 26 east to Alpine then route 89 south to Thayne, WY. As soon as I pulled into the park I gained 5 pounds. Here are some pics along the nice drive… the wind was at our backs and the fuel mileage was up all day. It was a very relaxing drive.
Near Idaho Falls we pulled into a big truck stop and got fuel for $3.86 a gallon. That’s pretty good for Idaho and no additional charge for charging it. I had 775 miles on the tank and took on 107 gallons. I wasn’t even at a quarter tank yet. I could have gone an easy 900 miles on this 150 gallon tank.
Dave and Brenda Neil met us at the front office. We followed them to their extra RV site and Carol parked the Beast (pics tomorrow). We got set up and then went over to Dave & Brenda’s friends for dinner. Their went that diet. It was so good..ribs, shrimp gumbo, crab soup and so on…. I think they do get togethers every two days. We were informed of Wednesday & Friday meals.
My laptop screen has a purple racing stripe in it now. I’ve turned the computer off and on several times and it’s still there. Oh well, I can read everything fine it just looks a little out of place. I wonder if I can change the color of it. I like orange and could live with that rather than purple.
