      Sounds great. We'll be watching your blog. I really want to hear about your Whidbey Island stop. That's on our bucket list if we ever get out to the west coast.

        If you're passing anywhere close to Caldwell (near Boise) give a wave to my mom. We'll be going to see her after the rally. Sounds like a great trip. See you at the rally.

          Today, we pulled into the Ambassador RV Resort (Caldwell, Idaho), enroute to the La Grande rally.

          While getting settled, we noticed numerous semi-trucks pulling RV trailers, 5th wheels and toy haulers heading into sites.

          We found out there's a big-rig rally here at the park. A couple of the rigs look brand new and are pulling 45'+ RV's ---- Massive!

          We even saw one semi with a modified rear-end to accommodate his camper:

                      Arrived at the Grande Hot Springs RV Resort this afternoon.

                      Park is 25% full, and only a couple of Arctic Fox trailers so far. The tents are up and hot tub is hot.

                      Temperature is 70, with rain showers in the area and 25mph winds. The mosquitoes don't have a chance in this breeze!

                        If you are eligible, active or retired military, Whidbey Island Naval Air Station has a great campground on base. It is set on a hillside overlooking the Straits of Juan de Fuca. Great facility, recently remodeled.

                          We stayed there two years ago, and your right, it is a very nice park.

                          We'll be headed back there to stay a week, after the rally.
