Idaho


Salmon River Camp

On May 15th, 2004, MsTioga and I made a Camp on the Salmon River in the State of Idaho. We were kind of newbies back then. However, I believe that we were courageous!

We just traveled, not worrying much about where our Nite Camp would be. We found after almost a year of RVing, that we always found a Nite Camp. So, why spoil a day's journey by worrying?

Please click [Here] to read about that long-ago day.

12 noon - We just got back from 24 Hour Fitness and grocery shopping at the Food For Less market.

This morning we arrived at 24 Hour around 8 am. Pretty early for us. Some days arriving early at 24 Hour will find the club very busy because of aerobic classes. There is no aerobic class on Friday. So, it is relatively quiet here at 24 this morning.

8pm - "Se7en"
I just finished viewing the movie "Se7en." This movie is #22 on the Top 250 list of the Internet Movie Data Base [Link].

Everything is terrific about this movie. Actors: Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Gwyneth Paltrow. Directing, first rate.

But the plot is sooooo sick. Terrible beyond belief. Torture. Murder. Madness. I am beside myself wondering what kind of person would write such a screen play?

As the movie came to its end, I was not left with enjoyment. I was left wishing that I had not viewed it!

  1. I remember when you camped there, what a nice place. We used to float the salmon river with my brother in law who worked for BLM at the time.

  2. There was a huge fire that burned through the area in 2015.The valley was thick with smoke. The Salmon is running at brim. We have had good snowfall this past winter and buckets of rain. Morel mushrooms and berries should be good this year.

    1. Hi Dee,

      Sorry to read in your comment about the fire!

      When I was RVing with MsTioga, it was always a joy to find blackberries to pick.

    1. Hi Pete,

      When I read my blog about my travels, it blows me away because that was such a good time. Salmon River country is such a great place to camp.

      Se7en over the top. Good description!

  4. George, if you want to watch a light-hearted, funny, and just a tiny bit sad movie (but with a great ending) about a mother and daughter from California, find the movie "What a Girl Wants" with Colin Firth, Amanda Byrnes, and Kelly Preston. Since you are from California, you will probably recognize the neighborhood
