San Antonio to Canada - Part Deaux

Coco is getting a "bathy". She doesn't look enthused.

Bob: If you're heading south toward Boise and have never been to McCall, that might be a worthwhile stop. Ponderosa State Park offers serviced sites in wonderful alpine, lakeside scenery. The weather will be warming considerably in the next few days, and there are plentiful sites available - including a few of our favorites on the north side of Aspen loop. Same suggestion for any others who might be heading our way…Glenn.

Last nights pot luck was a huge success. So many great dishes and basically every rally attendee came.

This was the best pot luck I've ever attended. Also, a local winery (Tunahill Cellars) had a little secret. The owner reserved a special Cabernet and Pinot Grigio specifically for the rally, and provided wine free to the dinner. The bottles even had a rally label. Neat stuff.

Wow. That is so cool!

Where are you staying in Coeur D'Alene? Just curious as people have asked for recommendations in our local area and I have no clue since we never camp locally!

We're at Tamarack RV park for one night. Didn't want to drive too much today and it was relatively close after the rally. $20 with full hookups and pull throughs for Passport America members.

Thank you Glenn for the recommendation! Ponderosa SP sounds right up our alley.

Robert you say you are using Passport America ? Is in your opinion a good club to join ? In the past tried KOA and really didn't care for their campgrounds . Now just have senior pass and automobile club for discounts . Will give this a try if you recommend this pass . Pat

Robert if you stop in that old restaurant in McCall right along the highway, see if that big mounted cougar is still on the wall there and let me know. He's a biggun.

Pat, we have PA and most places take it only weekdays. We did not use it much at first but on this trip used it plenty, and it easily paid for itself. Depends on where you go. We usually don't use private campgrounds but had to this time for a while, due to off-season and location factors.

KOA in the area we are in is $40, and weekends $50, which is not uncommon before their discount, so we never use them. Our PA gave us half price at places that were mostly $30 to begin with, so $15. We are using the senior pass at ACE most of the time, often $10 but only $6 off-season.
