Moving Day: Hill AFB, UT To Mountain Home AFB, ID

Posted by on April 17, 2013

After our usual moving day prep we pulled out of our site at Hill AFB base about 10:15 am.  We headed north on I-15 toward Idaho and eventually hit I-84.  We weren’t in a real hurry so we took our time.

We had a nice stay while in the Salt Lake City area but would have enjoyed it more if the sun had shined more and it was warmer.  Snow and cold are not our favorites.  It looks like it should be warmer at our next long stop in Vancouver, WA but I’m not holding my breath!

Beautiful but cold!

We had a nice drive – sunshine, beautiful mountains, lots of cattle & horses.  (We also so naked sheep!  But I didn’t have my camera handy!)  But don’t be fooled by the sun as it was only in the high 30s, low 40s for much of the drive.  We both decided that driving through Utah has been some of our favorite scenery so far….Idaho…not so much.  At first Idaho was mostly flat (with a few hilly/mountains) and brown but after we drove a while we started seeing more and more green and Michael was on the look out for potato fields!

We stopped in Idaho Falls to eat our lunch (sure do miss being able to eat outside! ) and to run through the Blue Beacon.  All the snow and salt wrecked havoc on the coach and we wanted to get it off as soon as possible.  A bath for both the truck and coach was $51.50.

We pulled into our site at Mountain Home AFB FamCamp about 5:30 pm.  It’s a small park with just 22 sites but it seems well kept and will do for the 2 nights that we are here.  We had a quick dinner and chilled for the rest of the evening.

We were able to add a new state sticker today!  Woohoo!  Idaho!

Idaho!
