We were so looking forward to a bed. As much as the RV is comfortable there is only a limit to how much time you can sleep on foam. We drove around the Coeur d'Alene lake and all had a good feeling about what was to come. Up into the mountains along a dusty lane we were being encouraged to go further to find Red Horse Mountain Ranch. We drove to the ranch house and was met by your stereo typical wrangler or wranglet, Ashley in jeans and gingham shirt. She welcomed us in and started to show us around the log ranch house, From the back porch we glanced the first view of the ranch. In the middle of this wilderness we were struck by a valley full of paddocks, ranch houses and horses. It was beautiful. We signed the obligatory insurance forms and we were off to find out log cabin.

En route we spotted another (but larger and luxurious) RV with a group standing outside drinking wine. We were introduced to our fellow guests and identified that one family (the RV drivers) were from the UK "where from" (always the first question) “London” “oh where” (second question if familiar or connected to London), “Wandsworth” “never, where do you live” and then we find out that we are with Tim and Elizabeth Green who used to live on Frewin Road and whose children went to Finton House. They were here with Elizabeth's mother, boyfriend, aunt, uncle and brother and wife. This world is small.

Our log cabin was spacious, comfortable and clean. Everything laid on with a view of the valley and the horses. We freshened up and started to unpack the RV and then it was dinner and a chance to find out who the Green’s knew that we knew and meet our other guests, a lovely couple from Philly called Siggy and Nancy who we have nicknamed Sid and Nancy.

We were invited to a campfire, the kids were cooking smores (called smores from the term “do you want somemore – s’mores) This is a gooey cocktail of charcoaled marshmellows with a layer of chocolate wedged between two sweet biscuits - great for the kids as they roasted their own marshmellows on twigs. Fun evening finishing with us all crashing into the crisp linen and soft mattress after a warm, clean shower with crisp towels (things we used to take for granted.
