WE MADE IT! WE’RE BACK IN BIG SKY COUNTRY!

Today was the most beautiful yet for driving!  In spite of overcast skies and a little bit of rain, we saw the most beautiful scenery today!  Beside the beauty, we also saw some “strange” or interesting things worthy of documentation  There were so many more, but I wasn’t quick enough to capture all the sites.Continue reading “WE MADE IT!

Catching you up on Monet and Picasso……

As you may have read in previous posts, my sister Marj and I (aka Monet Marj and Picasso Peggy) are aspiring artists!!  We have a lot of fun dabbling in this or that and we produce more laughter than art.  One day, maybe one of us will accidentally create a masterpiece! So, I made thisContinue reading “Catching you up on Monet and Picasso……”

Coeur d’Alena, ID – Ravenwood RV and Campground

It was a beautiful drive to Coeur d’Alene.  We drove through miles and miles of wheat fields and through the mountains of Idaho, reaching an elevation of about 4300 feet. From a distance, you could see wheat fields at the very top of the approaching mountains.  Once on top, we were amazed to see wheatContinue reading “Coeur d’Alena, ID – Ravenwood RV and Campground”

Ravenwood RV Resort and Campground, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho

This is actually a beautiful campground, featuring a swimming pool, good size level, gravel sites with adequate space in-between, a large dog park and a playground.  There are grass side yards and large yards in the back.  There are several downsides to this campground…..first it is next to a fairly busy highway and you canContinue reading “Ravenwood RV Resort and Campground, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho”

I had no idea what I was getting into…..

Well, I think they call it needlepoint, which I’ve never done before.  But I wanted to make a pillow for our home in Florida, so when I ran across this kit, I bought it!  Wow….this is going to be a project!  I’ve been working on it for a few hours several nights now, and thisContinue reading “I had no idea what I was getting into…..”

Creekside RV and Campground, New Meadows, ID

Well, there’s not much here…..the campground is small with quite a few permanent sites.  Our pull through site was gravel with grass and partial shade.  The sites were VERY close together – when out, our awning was just a few inches from Marj and Larry’s kitchen window!  No WIFI, minimal cell service and no cableContinue reading “Creekside RV and Campground, New Meadows, ID”

Oregon Trail Campground, Twin Falls, ID

If you enjoy gravel, then this is the campground for you!  The sites were very close together and there was no grass to be found unless you walked to the dog run.  This made for a very dusty experience – coupled with only a few trees, our air conditioners really worked just to keep up.Continue reading “Oregon Trail Campground, Twin Falls, ID”

Yellowstone RV Park at Mack’s Inn, Island Park, ID

This campground offered us a back in, full hook up, gravel site with a slight incline.  There were lots of pine trees with decent space between sites.  We had no WiFI but our cell signal was decent.  On arrival, we were met by a host in a golf cart who escorted us to our site.Continue reading “Yellowstone RV Park at Mack’s Inn, Island Park, ID”

Billings KOA, Billings, Montana

Interestingly, this was the very first KOA in the USA!  It was very nice, offering all the amenities you could ask for, including a good size pool and FREE miniature golf!  The office was good size and had a very large camp store with groceries, clothes and souvenirs.  The sites were gravel but they wereContinue reading “Billings KOA, Billings, Montana”
