    Idaho - the Potato State

    August 6, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Should be called the wheat state also. Couldn't stop for a spud shot but there sure was some wheat. And NO fences between neighbours. How do they know where their boundary is?

    Island Park [Mittwoch, 03.08, Tag 5]

    August 3, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Die letzte Etappe zum Yellowstone Nationalpark stand heute an. Nachdem wir eine Weile durch endlose Grasflächen mit unzähligen, riesigen Ranchen gefahren sind, haben wir unser erstes Ziel, die Grant Kohrs Ranch im Deer Valley besucht. Die etwa 11.000 ha große Ranch dient hauptsächlich dazu, den Besuchern eine Vorstellung davon zu geben, wie das Ranchleben früher ausgesehen hat und wie hart dieses war und wird heute nur noch zum Teil bewirtschaftet. Eine supernette Tangerine hat uns das über 200 Jahre alte, noch orginal ausgestattetes Ranchhaus gezeigt und uns die Geschichte der dort früher lebenden (deutschen) Familie erzählt hat. Bei unserem anschließenden Rundgang über die Ranch, haben wir lauter nette Arbeiter getroffen, die uns breitwillig gezeigt haben, wie man echten Cowyboykaffee herstellt oder wie man einen Bohrer schmiedet. Zum Abschluss durften wir noch eine Runde mit dem Planwagen, der von den sogenannten Draft-Horses, riesigen schwarze Kaltblüter, gezogen wurde, über die Ranch drehen. Dabei hat uns ein Cowboy, nachdem er erfahren hat, dass wir deutsch sprechen, auf österreichisch weitere Informationen über die Ranch erzählt.
    Danach ging's weiter zur Virginia City. Die alte Westernstadt wurde für Touristen authentisch rekonstruiert und zusätzlich mit einigen Westernstores ausgestatteten. Nach einem Besuch im Saloon & Co haben wir das letzte Stückchen zum Yellowstone Nationalpark angetreten. Wir haben dabei Montana (leider) wieder verlassen und sind wieder Idaho.
    Jetzt sind wir auf einem Campingplatz am See in Island Park und schlagen dort unser Lager auf.

    Close...

    June 20, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 54 °F

    Picked this National Forest camping spot about 30 minutes from Yellowstone. Have a mule deer as our neighbor.

    We had a pretty relaxed afternoon at this campsite. No amenities at all and quite a few people camping nearby but not so close they would bother us. Sadly another bag of trash was picked up by me from people trying to burn plastic and leaving their food wrappings all over. Don't people realize that calls bears to the campsite?

    Took a little hike down the NF road. Saw a few more mule deer but Redd was getting nervous because it was starting to look like it was going to snow. We had heard a radio report out of Boise that it was projected to snow that night, but I thought, "How can this be true? The temps are in the 40s". I guess that air temp doesn't matter when you live in high elevation.

    Redd cooked the most delicious dinner on the Blackstone griddle of french green beans and chicken breasts. We had just finished cleaning up when it began to snow. Big, thick, wet flakes of snow. I think it snowed for about an hour. Even stayed on the ground for a while.

    It really was so cold that night. I ended up sleeping in my coat and adding a blanket to the bed. I felt sorry for Chico and let him sleep with us in the bed that night.

    June 25, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    We had an early start. We had lots of dirt road, single track and a bit of tar. I saw more badgers, and got a fantastic photo.

    We endeared the worst 40km of old rail trail at the end of the day. I pushed Gary to do an extra 25km at the end of the day to get to a hotel (which was closed... Gary did some name dropping to get us in and an early breakfast)Read more

    Rail trail

    June 25, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    One of the most uncomfortable sections of the trail. About 40km of following an old rail trail where the rails and sleepers had been pulled up but the gravel and bumps were left behind.

    Who in their right mind thought riding an old rail bed makes a good bike trail....

    Subway

    June 25, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    I ate almost 2 footlongs! I was so hungry that after I bought the first one I went and ordered a second. Subway certainly seems to be the best value of money food I've found so far. But means get expensive when you spend over $20 (R300) per meal.

    Entering Idaho

    My second US state. The Tour Divide spends very little time in Idaho. We just cut past a small corner of the state.

    Relaxing, progress day

    July 9, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    With Sue back at home visiting a recuperating of Daddy-O, I tried to get some things done that I have been avoiding.

    After over thirty seven days of travel and 4,800 miles on the road, my white Jeep was showing a lot of wear....mostly road dirt, dust and BUGS. RosieBus is also in need of attention. Therefore, it’s washday. It took about three hours but all looks great now, for the areas I can reach. Quite a bit remains above the RosieBus windshield, oh well.

    After that, a nice shower and grilled a steak. It is hard to ask for more when you add a big block of ice and a nice helping of Weller bourbon.

    If only this site had TV (over air), good cell service, etc. my WiFi is inop so I have to use my cell hot spot.

    At least I wore Rosie out.

    Yellowstone Golf/RV Resort

    July 7, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Originally scheduled to be here on July 4th, so we could access Jackson Hole. However, it’s NOT a “resort” and it’s not close to Jackson Hole (it was as close as I could find for the 4th. Since I had reservations, it was use them or lose them (still have to pay).

    So we got here intending a week, as a base camp.

    However, the space is pretty basic, but acceptable. Gravel drives. So it’s dusty.

    Regardless, Sue’s dad (Daddy-O) isn’t doing well so I’ll get her to an airport, nearest one is an hour drive so she can head home. Rosie and I will either stay here and use our 7 days or relocate to a park where I can get a longer term and drive back to be with the family.

    It’s a fluid situation, but Sue either leaves today or tomorrow.

    Was having issues with my Jeep, which would be really bad right now, so I took it out to “run it” while Sue gets ready. On the way back, I saw why this park is attractive. It actually sits in the middle of massive farm fields, of various crops..... with no trees except for the park. When we arrived yesterday, it was hazy to the east and we didn’t notice the VIEW.

    Also last night, I tried and failed getting rhe grill started (don’t ask) so Sue crafted an amazing meal inside.
