Rookies from So. Cal

We are brand new owners of a '04 CCD International. Thrilled out of our minds with our new child. But, now that the search is over and we own it, we are petrified. Would love to find some support out there. Where do we know where to stay? Want to drive to northern Idaho. Love some advice.

Welcome!!

Welcome and congratulations.. You'll usually get at least as much help as you can stand here, sometimes more...

Several favorite trips for new members..

1. Learn to use "Search" tab in blue bar above.. Type in key word, like Idaho or checklists, and stuff will appear like magic
2. Feel comfortable sending side messages if apropriate to members, as either e-mails or private messages.. Thousands of members, many have been where you're going, or have made boo boo's you're going to make...
3. Ask almost anything Airstream related... I've been astounded by stuff SOMEBODY knows here....

As for Idaho, we traveled up from Northern CA through Portland and along Columbia River Gorge, crossed into Washington south of Richland, and then drove through Spokane to Couer d' Alene. Got to stop at resort there, though Trailer parking a problem.. We then headed up to Canadian Border, and there are a number of campgrounds and recreation areas along the highway (US 95) in areas around Priest Lake and Sandpoint.. We continued on into Canada at Kingsport (wide spot in Road, single lane Customs & Immigration) and had great time in Canadian Rockies, which is easy to do with Airstream as well..

As for finding places, everyone has a style.. We tend to keep a KOA and Woodall's Campground Directory in the car, and start thinking around 4PM of where we might stay, and either drive in or call on cell phone to see how things are looking. Rarely had problems, except for major hoidays or events...

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your new "child." My suggestion as where to camp is Wisconsin. You will love our state parks, the scenery and history. An added bonus is two Great Lakes for the price of one.
Good luck to you and I wish you many happy and safe camping trips.

use the search Luke

TheOBB,
As suggested plug this string into the search link: Cheap or Free in Idaho. You should get a Bob Thompson thread (one of his famous "Cheap or Free" posts).
Enjoy,
KL

Hi TheOBB and welcome. I know my tag shows I'm in Canton Tx but I'm in San Francisco. We love to camp in state parks. California State parks are fantastic as well as those in Ariz., N.M. and Tx. I bet those in Idaho are also. It may be a matter of taste but to us, the Nat., State and local Parks are way superior to the commercial places. Good luck on your trip. joe

Thanks for the info. I think you've got it right. We have been on one outing and that was our experience, as well. Appreciate your reply.

What determines a "Rivet" member? I meant to ask you that on the last email. I can't determine what/how/why people have this distinct labeling?

Now I get it!!! Complete rookie, but learning curve is starting to grow thanks to this great website. Any suggestions on uploading a picture of our new baby on? I am using jpg format, but when I have uploaded it says "file is invalid". Am I missing something here? Many Thanks for your time.

Photos?

There are searchable threads for photo uploading, but short version is that picture must be small jpeg file to be able to upload.

Depending on your photo editing skills, you will need to either shrink it in dimensions or save it in photoshop or something similar at lower quality levels (or maybe both..) until it meets criteria here for roughly 600 by 600 pixels. When you get it small enough, it will be uploadable...
