We've been moving relatively quickly north, over the last few days, so quickly that we've already reached the rain.  This is the first significant moisture we've seen since the "Blizzard of Ogden" we experienced just about a month ago.  We're back at the Buffalo Meadows RV Park on the Shoshone Bannock tribal Reservation. It's a very nice spot and we like it. 

We arrived and got set up easily and went into the casino to register.  Lynn was feeling lucky, so I, the big spender, broke a ten into two fives and shared them with her.  We picked what looked like two lucky machines of the one cent variety and went to work.  We took turns playing so we both could enjoy the experience. :o)  Lynn seemed to be doing much better until I went into the "bonus", whatever that was.  The player to my right showed us how it worked.  In the end, I had as much as seventeen dollars in winnings.  I played it down until I had my original ten dollars back.  Lynn worked valiantly on down to eighteen cents.  We had a grand time and cashed out our winnings.  We don't gamble much...can you tell?

The rain settled in seriously after we got back to the coach and cooled things down to the point where we called the space heater back into action.  How times have changed.  A few days ago it was the AC operating.  Spring is here in Idaho, but the damp variety it seems.  We'll take the rain, especially after the drought we've seen in AZ.

We'll be home tomorrow, Saturday.  It will be good to be there.  I'm looking forward to hikes in the South Hills and riding the bicycle again.  Then there's the yard, beckoning.  We've had reports of buds on Lynn's blueberries.  That's a good sign.

Thanks for following along with us.  It is good to share what we see and do with friends like you...
