Hey Dave, what a pleasant surprise to wake up to on a blizzard filled morn. So happy to take another fantabulous trip out into the Idaho hinterlands. So many thanks for taking us along.

Thank you Whazoo! Very entertaining!

I’m 80 years old and been blessed to have experienced some of what your Trip Reports convey to me.

I’ve pulled small trailers (16 ft class) across this great county for 75K miles alone. My wife of 59 years did not enjoy uncertainty of travel. In retirement I pulled thru 2005 to 2016, into Yosemite, along Rt 1 up California coast, across Oregon, into Canada., Key West, Maine and the rest of USA over 20 trips.
Some emotions one feels:
Able to change direction at a whim…..
Apprehension of parking in remote areas…..
The danger of the weather, waking up with trailer rocking violently in Tornado country……, dressing hurriedly and driving further West in the dark looking for (to avoid!), but not able to see a Tornado in dark.

Entering Yosemite at southern gate and seeing a sign saying “36 inches of snow expected tomorrow ”Need chains to enter Park” , it now being 7 PM, but entering anyway.

Those emotions one experiences are as great as the scenery.
To travel alone today for me…, “very interesting, BUT stupid!” To quote somebody named ”Arty from LAUGH IN”.
Thanks again Whazoooo.

I woke up to find an inch of snow had fallen in the night but somehow it wasn't near as pretty here as what you saw. It's hard to beat the vistas created by snow in the desert. And that was some pretty desert!

I'm a little late to the dance, but I gotta say -- Whazoo, your photo skills keep getting better and better. Excellent compositions! Thanks for taking the time to put this TR together. The rest of us can only dream of going into the far back country during the deepest part of winter. Well done!

Whazoo

The adventures you and the furry kids have are enjoyable to view from a warm seat. I'm working hard to follow in your tire tracks more as fires permits.

Great report on some beautiful country.

Travel On!!!

Howdy Doug! Ok guys, your generous replies all these years are unheard of, you hear that?! I can only give a heart-felt thank you to everyone. You've given me a great ride for a long time now, cheers to the TC life.
