In today’s video, we head to our first public laundromat to get our laundry done after a few weeks of going without. We normally try to find a campground with laundry services but couldn’t this time. It worked out well though. Then we explore the Idaho Falls River Walk while our truck is being serviced at the nearby Dodge before enjoying our last night at the lake campground.
This accidentally published a few weeks ago so we apologize if you have already seen it! In today’s video, we get some stretching done at our lakeside camping spot and finally get the hang of our SeaEagle Kayak. Once we knew what we were doing we had a blast! We then enjoyed the beach, did some swimming and made a delicious lunch. We highly recommend Jefferson County Lake Campground for anyone in the area!
In today’s video, we are leaving our free camp spot at the Hayspur Fish Hatchery which we really enjoyed and are heading to campground north of Idaho Falls. Jefferson County Lake Campground in Rigby Idaho is amazing! $15 a night for 50amp electric and water. We spend our Saturday running some errands in Idaho Falls since we are finally near civilization and we will be away from it for a while after this. Wait until you see the before and after of Miss Patti when we are taking to get her groomed.
In today’s video, we head over from our free camping spot at the Hayspur Fish Hatchery to Craters of the Moon National Monument. We head to the Visitor’s Center first to get our free cave permit (so we don’t bring anything in that might harm the bats). The landscape there was otherworldly for sure. The lava cascades were amazing and very harsh. We did the cave hike and climbed down into 3 of the 4 caves and had absolutely a blast doing it. If you are in this area of Idaho, this is definitely worth a stop!
In today’s video, we do NOT have a good time trying to get the Airstream out of a boondocking spot. We have learned our lesson and will never try to boondock in a spot with so much of a dip in the road ever again. It was a stressful and trying experience but luckily we didn’t do any more damage when we bottomed out again and we had an amazing neighbor who came over and helped us out. We finally make it to our next boondocking spot at Hayspur FIsh Hatchery. It is a free campground and was super quiet and very well maintained. A great place to camp for a few days.
In today’s video, we are still boondocking along Trail Creek in Sun Valley Idaho. We go for a nice bike ride along a paved path. There are a number of paved paths in this area, not to mention LOTS of mountain biking trails. Next, we head down to a free dump station in Hailey Idaho. We have to deal with very smoky conditions from nearby wildfires but luckily the air wasn’t too bad. Last we walk around the Sawtooth Botanical Garden which was absolutely stunning. We highly recommend you check it out if you are in the area.
In today’s video, we show some of the exercises we try to do while traveling. It’s a work in progress but we’re trying to come up with a routine for those days where we are not hiking. Next, we go on the search for water. We find a dump station in the Sawtooth National Forest which has potable water and trash for a $5 donation. There is also a bunch of boondocking and National Forest Campgrounds on the same road which is good to know for next time! We make a trip to the Sawtooth Brewery and Steve shows off his souvenir.
In today’s video, we leave Bruneau Dunes State Park and head north a couple of hours in Idaho to try and escape the heat. We decide to boondock in the National Forest outside of Sun Valley and after some trials involving a very steep road we make it to a lovely spot for the next week or so. Next, we go explore the Sun Valley area!
In today’s video, we decide to go on a short hike in Bruneau Dunes State Park but then once out there we decide to go for the whole enchilada and hike the big dune. It was a difficult hike and it got very hot but it was absolutely gorgeous and we had a great sense of accomplishment! We will probably never do the hike again but we are very glad we did it this time. Amazing!
In today’s video, we leave the Columbia River Gorge and head into East Oregon before making it to Idaho. Our last stop in Oregon is a one night stay at the Wildhorse Resort and Casino in Pendleton. We didn’t want to boondock because the temperatures were in the high 90s so a full hook-up site was appreciated. We leave Oregon for this trip and head to Bruneau Dunes State Park in Idaho where it is hot hot hot! Luckily we still have electric! We’re looking forward to climbing those dunes.
