January 2009.

As is typical for winter in Idaho, we are buried in snow. I pass the winter months planning for summer trips and am taking this opportunity to update family, friends and blog readers of our RV plans for this summer.

In early June, we will make a short (5 day) trip to Devils Tower area in Wyoming to meet with family members for a early summer campout at Keyhole State Park. We will probably travel through or near Yellowstone and Teton Parks on the way to and from Keyhole.

After about 3 days back home we will head out on a 3 week adventure through Oregon, Washington and Idaho. We plan spend a lot of time lake side and oceanside. Our travels will include Lava Lake, Loon Lake, and several state parks. We plan to end up in Waggonhammer RV Park north of Salmon, Idaho at the end of the trip.

In August we will leave for Colorado to visit our old friends and former neighbors; also spend a few days with Jim's brother near Eaton, CO. From there to Yankton, SD to visit Jim's mom and another brother. We will stay at White Crane, a beautiful South Dakota State Parks campground near the Gavins Point Dam on the Missouri River. From there to Colome, SD for Jim's annual family reunion weekend; followed by a few days in Rapid City, SD, then home to Idaho.

We have acquired a new addition to our family, a little female terrier mix we rescued from the Idaho Falls animal shelter. We hope she adapts to RV life as well as our other pooch, Sammy.
