I ended up staying here one more day in Grangeville. Why not? It is a nice camp site. Sunday I was having trouble finding a camp site around Spokane or Coeur d' Alene. They either sounded bad, or were booked up. I finally went to Plan B. Back to Palouse, Washington. Home of the great Cat and Dogfight Debacle. No phone service. But it will only be for two days, then I will hopefully have found a longer term deal in Montana. Western Montana. Taking my time....

Wednesday morning Cyber, Senor, and myself headed south on RT 95 for about an hour to Riggins. From there we took a forest road west for 17 miles. We gained 6000 feet during that stretch. The road was paved for a few miles, then went to dirt and gravel. The road was in decent shape. There were not many views until we got to the top and we popped out when the timberline started breaking up.

Right away we saw a group of mountain peaks called Seven Devi...

Seems like a long time ago, but last Wednesday we all headed out of PALOUSE, WASHINGTON going south to Lewiston. Nice ride. Most of it still in THE PALOUSE region, very scenic.

The road up until then was pretty straightforward. Some gentle turns and smaller hills. 60 mph road. When you get a couple miles from Lewiston the ro...

Sunday started quietly. Mornings are usually spent with the computer and coffee. I usually head out later for whatever. While I enjoyed the morning I noticed my neighbors were disappearing one by one. One minute they are there, next minute gone. Suddenly I noticed I was the only camper remaining. Shades of Taylorsville, Kentucky.

I took a ride through the countryside north to Spokane. Another college town, here it was Gonzaga. The Palouse seemed ...

My second full day in The Palouse, camping in Palouse, WA.

Yesterday I took a exploratory drive to see what was nearby. First I headed east to Colfax, about 15 miles away. Nice landscape on the way. You enter town taking a 10% downhill grade, dropping into a town you really can't see until you get down to it. The Palouse is like that. Many hills and valleys.

Colfax is a little bigger than Palouse, but not much. There is a nine hole golf c...

On June 4th I left Kentucky driving my RV known as Leggs. The trip is mostly unplanned, it will be interesting to see where I end up. Let's GO!
