August 14-16 campout

Hello Everyone:  

For your information, if you still have any Idaho Power campsite reservations you need to cancel (Hells Canyon McCormick Park or CJ Strike Cottonwood Park) if you call Cindy Sorensen, Idaho Power Parks and Recreation 208-388-2231 and tell her you are cancelling because of virus concerns, you will get a full refund.  I cancelled my CJ Strike reservations today and Cindy said Idaho Power is giving full refunds for any reservations being cancelled for virus concerns.

Also a reminder for our Huckleberry Campground, Lake Cascade, reservations in July that we had to make nine months in advance, aka in 2019, if you have not already done so, you need to call Idaho Dept. of Parks and Recreation Reservations, 1-888-922-6743, and give them your 2020 Idaho Resident Sticker No. (which is your license plate number) and your 2020 State Park Passport No., which will get you a refund for these discounts.  That is next on my to-do list.  They will want your expiration date on both of those as well.  They would not take that information in 2019 because these usually expire the end of the year.

Hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having.


Updated Calendar

Several folks mentioned not having an updated calendar so check out the updated one under CAMPING SCHEDULE 2020 with what I have up to this point in time. This includes the cancelled campouts and the change in August from CJ Strike to Riverpond in Crouch. 

Also, one more change: I had a call today from Emma who said she and Mark are unable to host the June 26-28 campout as they need to be back in Massachusetts at that time. If anyone is interested in being the Wagonmasters for that weekend, please let me know. Sadly, Jim and I have other plans at that time so we will not be able to play host. Please let me know if you would like to take this campout. 

Thanks and miss all of you! Looking forward to the end of May campout! 

Stay well,
Rita ☀

Did you receive your cancellation notice?

We received notification from Idaho Power today canceling our reservations for the campout at McCormick Park for May 1-3 and issuing a full refund. Did everyone else receive one? 

I'm so sad. 😖 I'm still working but now that schools are closed for the rest of the year, I was really hoping for some campouts soon ... some interaction with real people. Maybe things will get better after this week. 

Hope everyone is healthy, wealthy, and wise -- well, at least 2 out of 3 ain't bad! We are fine, just staying in and trying not to be overwhelmed by the news and the situations. 

Keep in touch and let us know what's happening in your neck of the woods. Stay healthy! 😷

Miss everyone,
