In today’s video, we finish up our time at Jefferson County Lake in Idaho. A bald eagle comes by to hang out on our last day which had us out with our binoculars for quite a while. We then cook up one last summer tropical hoorah with our Mango Cauliflower dinner before hitting the road down to Salt Lake City.
In today’s video, we leave Montana and Horse Prarie Campground to head back into Idaho and one of our favorites, Jefferson County Lake. It’s the last week Jefferson County Lake is open and we had to take advantage of another 5 days on the lake with 50amp and water for $15 a night. While we were there we met up with some friends who just purchased a new to them 2017 Airstream Bambi 16′. We take you along as they show off their new home-away-from-home.
In today’s video, we decided to spend the weekend back in our field in Island Park Idaho. We originally were only going to overnight there on the way north but since the signal was good we decided to spend the weekend so we could stream football. We got to happy hour with some cows and answer some questions from our commenters. Next stop, North Yellowstone area in Montana!
In today’s video, we leave Jefferson County Lake once again and head to Victor Idaho to meet family. While there we are staying at the Mike Harris Campground which is nice and quiet but has the most unique water pump system we’ve seen. We also spend the day at the Jackson Hole Resort and ride the Tram, Gondola, and Chairlift to get some awesome views!
In today’s video, we head back to Jefferson County Lake for a quick 2-night stay. We’ve decided Jefferson County Lake is our favorite pay-for campground we’ve encountered so far, so why not stay while we get the truck worked on in Idaho Falls. Unfortunately, that turns out to be a disaster but we did get to meet up with Nolan & Joanne, some awesome viewers for fabulous Mexican food so that made the day so much better!
In today’s video, we take you through the Eclipse with us in the 97% zone near West Yellowstone. Besides it getting dark and quite chilly we didn’t get too much on video, unlike some of the vloggers in the zone of totality, but it was still fun to experience with girls in our Airstream. The next day we head back into Yellowstone to check out Old Faithful. We hang out with some bison and watch Old Faithful from a couple of different vantage points.
In today’s video, we decide to skip the crowds in Yellowstone and instead head down to Mesa Falls which is about 30 minutes south of where we are boondocking. Unfortunately, there were crowds there too due to a bike race and being closer to the zone of totality for the eclipse the next day. The falls were both definitely worth the trip though, especially the Upper Falls! We take the opportunity to fill up our water jugs too, or course.
After we return from our adventures Steve chats about our solar setup and everything we run/charge on a typical day. We’re loving these cooler days of full sun here in Idaho, we never have to worry about our batteries getting too low. Steve also talks a little bit more about equalizing our tanks when we are boondocking.
In today’s video, we head to Yellowstone National Park for our first day of exploring. We decide to do a 7-mile hike to Fairy Falls and the Imperial Geyser from the Fairy Falls parking area south of the Grand Prismatic Spring. It was a lovely day for a hike and since this was a bit of a longer one we didn’t see very many people which was awesome considering the crowds we say elsewhere. The Fairy Falls was absolutely gorgeous and then only a mile further was the Imperial Geyser which was unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. While at Imperial Geyser we were recognized for the first time by Tina and had a wonderful chat. An amazing day of hiking, scenery, and meeting awesome people!
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.
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.
