The Airconditioner slows us down

As I mentioned, we have a problem with the main airconditioner in our camper that has caused us to change our original plans for this trip. We had an appointment in Idaho Falls at OK Trailer Sales to have the problem fixed. Therefore, we departed Moran, WY so as to arrived in Idaho Falls for the appointment. We stayed at the Snake River KOA for the night and then went into Shelly, ID about 11 miles away the next morning. They found the problem, but as luck would have it, they didn’t have the part to fix it. The part was ordered and will be available this coming Monday. We will leave so as to be back at OK Trailer Sales for the fix, which shouldn’t take very long.

We left Idaho Falls, after the airconditioner problem was diagnosed and proceeded to McCall, ID. We didn’t leave until just after lunch from Idaho Falls so we only went as far as Boise and spent the night. I had thought about continuing on to McCall, but I’m glad we stopped. It would have been a tough haul after a long day to make it to McCall. In McCall, we stayed at the Boise Meridian RV Park. This is a very nice park and is only about 4 years old. I will say more about it and the other parks where we have stayed when I take a break from having fun.

We left Boise the next moring and proceeded to McCall. Everyone we talked to said that McCall was only a 2 hour drive from Boise. Well, it is like taking a hike up a mountain trail. When you have gone a long way, you ask how much farther to the end and the reply is always different from each person that you ask. It took us over 3 hours to make it to McCall from Boise. There was road construction, that no one told us about before hand.

We have been in McCall for three days now and it has rained every day. Night before last it rained all night long and continued for all of yesterday. Therefore, we haven’t been able to do much of anything. Yesterday we did a tour of the McCall smoke jumping base. It was very interesting and we enjoyed the tour. Today we are going to Riggins for a raft trip. It is raining again today but hopefully the weather will be different, or better, in Riggins. Tomorrow we will leave for our appointment in Idaho Falls to have the airconditioner fixed and then onto Estes Park Colorado. In Estes Park we will be staying at Elk Meadows Lodge and RV Park.
