Traveling again, It’s about time

Once gain I’m traveling the Boise National Forest. It seemed as though I was hibernating all winter long, anxiously anticipating the day I can get back into the mountains or just get out and do some traveling.

What turned out to be a quick drive to lucky Peak Reservoir turned out to be a two and a half day get away.  Nothing really spectacular but reasonable weather and no crowds. I guess that is spectacular, lucky me.


The spillways at Luck Peak and Arrowrock Dams look like they were running wide open, yet the Lakes are still quite low. Giving you the obvious impression that there is a lot of snow pack in the mountains still waiting to thaw.

Traveling to Arrowrock

Arrowrock Reservoir still had ice on it and was quiet and refreshing, again no crowds. Scattered patches of snow and the rivers are running full. It would be some time until the fishing is good once again on the rivers up here.

The fishing this weekend, well, they call it fishing and not catching for a reason. Nothing but a few small trout and even smaller bass. So, I set the pole and did other things. That is, if you call being lazy doing other things.

It was an uneventful travel weekend. Not much going on other than a lot of napping, reading and music in the fresh air and of course hanging out with Gizmo.

I took very few pictures. Unusual for me. It was all about doing nothing I suppose and that I did. After all, this was the first weekend of many to come.

  1. Good to hear you’re out and about again 🙂 We’re working on 17 months fulltiming in our 33′ fifth wheel and loving it more every day. Yesterday we floated a 4 mile stretch of the Colorado south of Ehrenberg, AZ — hoping to do 16 miles total before we leave. We have to be in Chino, CA around 3/20 for a few days and then heading east and north through AZ to spend some time in Moab, UT with plans to be back in the Boise area the end of May.

    1. Hey there Jim,
      Thanks for the comment. It’s great to hear from you.
      It’s been great getting out once again. By the looks of it you guys are living the life, good for you. Keep it up. The river must be a blast to float. Getting into the water this time of year is just awesome. 17 months, wow! I see your keeping busy with the cool projects along the way, that’s always fun.

      I just picked up a small solar panel to re-charge my gadgets so I can leave the truck battery alone. I think my setup is as complete as I need it to be. Funny, I always say that until I get another idea. You know how it is. There’s always something. Something to make it more convenient to camp and stay out longer.

      I wish I could have stayed out on the road but life circumstances had a different idea for me. Oh well, I need to follow the doctors’ orders occasionally. I imagine if I had the trailer I would still be out there. No regrets. I will continue to enjoy my simple camping style, I’m far from being done with my travels.
      Hope to cross paths someday. Stay safe and keep up the good life.
      Kevin
