I don’t know how to use the info screen yet. 😳
if you go to freightliner rv website you can download the manual if you don’t have it. Pretty easy to navigate screen. on mine I have a pre trip checklist that comes up when coach is started. Lots of other info in screen. Once you get the hang of it it’s pretty easy. I always check gallons used when stopping for fuel so I know how much money to pay cashier before filling As truck stops require prepay inside.

Shoshone Falls!! This is about two miles up the road. Breath taking, and the sound is incredible.. View attachment 1014134
did you go see the Evel Knievel jump site just at the end of this pic? We stop at the falls in 2017. I didn’t know this was the actual spot but saw it on a sign there while walking around. Cool surprise! Awesome trip. Thanks for taking us along…

Shoshone Falls is awesome. It’s usually flowing this time of year but with a mild winter and very little to no rain you see the results. Here’s a picture of it about a month ago.

Out at the bridge watching Base Jumpers

Pretty incredible to watch! Also thinking how in many states they would be making this a criminal act and here they encourage it.

I looked it up and that's the only bridge in the US that you do not need a permit to base jump off of.

We have really been enjoying relaxing out here. Today after the bridge we went down to a little creek and let the kids do some fishing.

They really liked it so tomorrow we are going to go camp at a large lake so they can catch some bigger fish.

Dave, I see your family spending more time away from havasu. Small town. Hot. Maybe a second home or property somewhere as a base. My parents took us all over the country as kids and I can't help but think some families never get the chance to do the same thing. Glad you and Stacey are doing it.

great photos and stories

I thought about getting a second vacation home. I’m not ruling it out l, but the ability to go anywhere we want when we want has some appeal.

This morning we had zero plan. Tomorrow we are going to some lake so the kids can ride bikes and fish.. it’s kinda nice to be a nomad.

Stay out and go north. Deeper into God's country.

Agreed!! Gut it, head it, throw a couple pad of butter, couple lemon slices, and some sliced onion inside it. Throw a couple wraps of aluminum foil around it. Toss it in the camp fire for about 15-20min. Let it sit for 5min or so, unwrap and enjoy!!

The KOA is right on this little fast flowing river. They rent tubes and for the little ones they float 2-3 blocks.. if you go further up they have rapids

when you drive into the town there is a sign and it is actually a giant water slide you drive under. They have all kinds of water fun stuff for kids to teenager and adults.. Main Street is perfect for nice dining to corn dogs with plenty of shops for antiques to art etc.. this place is absolutely awesome and we are coming back for a couple days sooner than later. Approximately 10 hrs from Havasu so possible three day vacation!

We just arrived at Lava Hot Springs Idaho.. this place is RAD!! We will definitely be coming back here. I’ve been here 30 minutes and I don’t want to leave tomorrow!!

It is a crazy cool little town!
That is a great place. I lived in Georgetown which is between Soda Hot Springs and Montpellier when I was doing cable as a young buck. Lava was our weekend get away

Reminds me of Pinedale Wyoming that we stopped at coming home from Yellowstone. The vibe was awesome and everyone in town tube floating.

Walking across stream that our campsite backed up too. Pic of the KOA entrance where our campsite was and now on Main Street 100’ away.. some shop that has coffee and shorts bathing suits flips etc

The trucks run you up to the rapids and then you float back down. Not sure on the whole process yet.
