Jul 6, 2018 - Post Falls, Idaho

Part 1 – Things Go Well We make our best decisions in the morning. Usually. Our next stop is the Buck Knife Factory in Post Falls, Idaho. The factory and store are closed on Saturday and Sunday. It is about 2 hours and 45 minutes to Post Falls. We are rested. We decide to travel to Post Falls, do our shopping and stay the night. We can come back to Libby before planning our trek to Glacier National Park. We head west on Route 2. We head south on Route 95. Bonners Ferry is nice but busy. We pass through Sandpoint. Nice but busy. We reach...

Aug 23, 2017 - Travel from Missoula, MT to Post Falls, ID

August 23 – Travel from Missoula, MT to Post Falls, ID More mountains, more climbing, but no overheating or check engine light – Life is Good. :) We left Missoula in smoke and traveled in smoke most of the way to Idaho. See Kathleen’s photo of the rising sun in the smoke. After we set up camp in Post Falls at the Coeur d’Alene RV Resort, we headed for the nearby Walmart to pick up supplies and order more anxiety pills for Martha to have enough for us to get to Florida. Martha is anxious when we leave the RV and barks and gets stressed and...

May 2, 2016 - Post Falls

We left in beautiful sunshine and headed towards Cranbrook where we refuelled and drove to the border. We stopped at a rest area where we had stopped last year and had our lunch, getting rid of the tomatoes which were the only vegetables or fruit which we had left. The border was the easiest crossing we have ever had with the trailer since 9-11. The officers only questions were the usual ones about alcohol tobacco firearms, fruit or vegetables and cash. Nothing about meat, rice or eggs like last year and they did not inspect the RV. We...

Jul 8, 2014 - Post Falls, ID.

Seems like we are traveling across country 150 miles at a time. No complaints. We have lots of time and things to see. We are in Coeur D'Alene, ID. We were here in 1984 and thought it was one of the most beautiful cities we have seen. It is a beautiful valley of Lakes surrounded by mountains. The lake area is still gorgeous. The city has become commercial like most. Department stores, commercial businesses and apartments line the highway. Downtown is quaint and very busy. I would still recommend it as a pretty place to visit. We will see...

Sep 11, 2013 - Leaving Montana to Post Falls, Idaho

Traveling from West Glacier, Montana, to Post Falls, Idaho on our way to Omak, Washington. As we drove through Montana, South and West, the landscape changed from flat farmland (with mountains in the background) to rolling hills with larger mountains in the background, to driving in the mountainous Rockies. There were a couple of really significant lakes, one in Montana, the Flathead Lake, which we traveled along side of for quite a while and then, once in Idaho, the Coeur d'Alene Lake. I took some pictures right before the large mountains...

Jun 26, 2013 - Travel day - Ephrate, WA to Post Falls, ID

Dry roads and no winds and only 1 5% downhill grade - that makes for a good travel day. Either one of us liked the coastal side of Washington but the eastern side is very beautiful.... the people very nice ... and they know how to drive politely. We made it to Idaho, this is the first time for Fran to see this state. Enjoy the pictures... Until the next posting ... have fun and stay safe. God Bless Ken and Fran

2013 - Here we come

Sep 19, 2012 - Goldendale, WA remained in Peachtree Beach Campground to view the Columbia River Gorge

Traveling through the Columbia Gorge. The Gorge starts about 80 miles east of Portland and can be accessed by both the Washington and Oregon side. We were following the Columbia River and were in the valley or bottom looking up at cliffs and mountains on both sides.

Highway 84 runs along the Oregon side – this is a well maintained and rather smooth freeway.

On the Washington side we took the Lewis and Clark Highway (Highway 14). This road is more up and down with many jogs and curves. We went through at least 5 small tunnels...

Sep 18, 2012 - Yakima, WA to Merryhill, WA

Traveling to Yakima on I90, then to Highway 17, Highway 82 and Highway 97.

Yakima is a large crop area in Washington. We saw grapes ready to harvest and hops (used to make alcohol). Hops grow on long vines that are suspended by wires and poles. The vines are about 8 feet tall and when they harvest them they take the entire plant.

The area we drove through looked like it needed constant watering from the Yakima River to survive. Most of the fields had large farm size sprinkler machines. We saw many apple orchards and peach...

Data: 234 miles to Yakima, Washington (Walmart)

Sep 16, 2012 - Wallace, ID Westward Bound

Leaving Wallace, ID at 1pm via I90 to Post Falls, ID. We toured a silver mine at Wallace and the trolley that took us to the mine also showed us parts of the historical part of Wallace. Wallace boasts of having President Roosevelt visit for one day in 1903. Wallace also had the only stop light on I90 before the interstate changed the highway course and went over the city. The city burnt and was rebuilt with brick in 1933.

Streets were extremely wide and many of the buildings and houses are still there from the 1920's silver rush...

Aug 2, 2012 - A few photos

These are a few photos taken in Glacier National Park, downloading them is very slow, so they will be limited. Need to find another way. We are in Couer d'Alene, Idaho for a few days, we are sort of wandering around until we get to Custer as the annual motorcycle rally is held in Sturgis and they fill up all the sightseeing spots. We will arrive right after most of them (we hope) have gone. It's much warmer here, low 80's day, 50's nights, we have been spoiled with the cool weather, might as well get acclimated for our Texas return next month.

Jul 16, 2012 - Day Trip: Post Falls, ID

The Buck Knife factory is in Post Falls. There is a factory tour. Post Falls is about fifteen minutes away. We do not have reservations so we arrive at 9:00. It is a good thing that we are early. There is room on the 10:00 tour for us and one other couple. I listen to the woman returning phone calls. “I am sorry but all tours are booked for today and most of tomorrow.” We get lucky again. The tour is great. It lasts about forty-five minutes. John is a fan of Buck knives. Next, we stop at the Nut Factory. There is no tour but we stock...
