Some of us Idaho folks ARE great! Just because there are a few weirdos and bad apples doesn't make all of us that way...

I hope you didn't think I was thinking anything of the sort. I love Idaho! I'll be out there this summer. Seeing the sites.

They have some good videos about the Cottonwood Walmart brawl at abc15.com. It sounds like they're already in the process of shutting down the free camping there. It stays pretty quiet at our store, hardly ever have campers stay more than one night. I've worked 24 years at our Walmart, and only remember seeing one Airstream stay in all of those years, but we're a little off the major routes to anywhere Airstreamishly important. Come monday I'll ask the manager if we've had any info from the Cottonwood deal.

No, I was just giving you a hard time. Where are you going in Idaho? There are a lot of sights to see in this state!

If you are going to be anywhere near Idaho Falls, we would love to visit with you. There's a great place to overnight right on the Snake River--FREE parking, free fresh water, free dumping--courtesy of the city, or you could overnight in our driveway with water and power.

I won't be pulling the AS on this trip. I'm coming out with a few buddies. We are hauling out smaller dual sport motorcycles. We are going to ride around the entire state on gravel and logging roads. Hauling tents etc.. Going to go over as many passes as we can in eight days. I think we will be coming through Idaho Falls, but you wouldn't want us 60 yr old hooligans around.

so many topics in one thread, wow. 1 I like potatoes, especially with beef, so Idaho rules. 2 I stopped at a Steak house, forget name but a big chain, near Richmond, and after dinner asked manager to stay over night, he directed me around back. Quiet with no disturbance. Next morning I had greasy breakfast next door at Cracker barrel. 3 It only takes a few to mess a good relation ship with parking permissions. There was a van dweller that "lived" in wall-marts and stole ice from a neighboring motel. That wall-mart is now on the forbidden list.

Some folks have a huge false sense of entitlement which often ruins the situation for others in the future.

Walmart overnight parking

If you flush with the exhaust fan pulling air from the trailer, and the windows, vents, etc., are closed, the path of least resistance for the air to enter the trailer and replace that being pulled out by the fan is through the black water tank roof vent and you will find pulling the air from the black water tank is indeed something you only need to experience once.

And if anyone else is in the trailer when you do this, they might decide this act is punishable by death or serious injury to the perpetrator. 💋😷

We all make errors......somehow my iPad had me at a different spot in the thread....oh well...

Well, maybe next time! We are motorcyclists, but don't know about them hooligans.

We have certainly been baked and fried, but it's been a long time since we were little tots! I hope you would find us "alright."
