We left Great Falls this morning and it was 61 degrees. We took I15 south. The scenery all the way down to Idaho Falls is just beautiful. We went from rolling mountains to rugged mountains to open valleys with large ranches and large cattle herds and sheep herds and then the /inding rivers and then up the mountain passes and over to find another beautiful valley. The further we get to Idaho, the more grain fields and wheat fields. We had to come to Idaho, because we only have 1 potato left and we needed to come to potato country. The truck and camper are still dirty. The truck is a 2-tone, bright red and dirt. The camper is almost white and dirt. We will find a truck wash tomorrow and get clean once again. We have decided to stay 2 nights in Idaho Falls. I didn't even know that the Snake River ran through Idaho. We are going to drive around through the countryside and just look around some of the back roads. You know, sometimes you just have to unhook from the camper and venture off into the backroads. We have been driving hard for 7 days now and feel like we need a little rest and relaxation. I went to Albertson's today. Wow!!! Cokes for $10 for 4-12 packs. Things are back to normal. I forgot to tell you that there must be an invisable border between the north and the south kind of like the Mason Dixon Line that divides our country into where you can find fresh brewed ice tea and where they have never heard of it. I cannot tell you how many times I have asked for fresh brewed ice tea and they just look at me like a dumbfounded puppy dog with their heads cocked with wonder in their eyes. They have never heard of fresh brewed ice tea. They only point me to the bottles of cold tea. They only serve iced coffee above this invisable boundary. I told them that in Texas we brew tea just like we brew coffee and then we put ice in it to make it cold and they just look at me like I must be nuts. If only they knew how nuts they must be to put ice in their coffee. Oh well, I think we must be approaching the south side of this boundary soon I hope. We saw the prettiest and fattest antelopes in some of the alfalfa fields today. They were feasting on the fields and then watering in the beautiful lakes in the area. We had a really good drive again today and celebrated by buying some good ole fried chicken for supper. We took a picture of a Budwieser Sign just for George and Eunice today since he was kind of under the weather and knew that this would give him a chuckle. He drove a Budwieser delivery truck for a while and tried to help the company as much as he could by consuming a bit himself just to help the company of course. Will try to bring home a bushel of Idaho potatoes from here.
