oh yeah I spent some $$$$$ in your state. I was thinking that gas was going to be alot more than what it was, but in Texas it was fairly decient. I WAS ONLY GOING 60-65 mph, but I like to get in aleast 8-10 hours of driving time in each day. I guess when you got good roads to travel on why not go at a good speed and site see from your window. We are having a blast here, but the wind is something else it doesn't let up, we can'teven let the awning out because of the wind. well we are off to Monument Valley this morning just to site see.I will be back on later

Hey Lee, if you like to see the sights on the way a good route is up to Boise, ID on I-84 and then take highway 55 out of Boise up to US 95 heading North to Coeur d Alene, Idaho (I-90) or head West out of Lewiston, ID on US 12. We have taken the trip up from Boise to Coeur d Alene, but not West out of Lewiston. Great scenery.
We are going to try to take US 12 out of Missoula, MT this summer over to Lewiston and on to Walla Walla, WA and then head down to Long Beach, WA for a month.
Anyway if you like mountains and curvy roads and you have the time, the route out of Boise is great. We didn't have any trouble pulling it with our Dodge CTD in 2003, however, there are some good steep grades.
The wife and I have taken 84 North to Wa to see her sister two or three times. I was planning on taking I15 north thru Idaho to I90 in Montana so I can look up old friends in Missoula. (Used to own an American Oil Gas station there). Than keep on 90 to Spokane, than west on 2 catch 174 over grand coulee dam to 17 to 97 to 20 and into Cascade and Newhalem where I will be working. Should be interesting to say the least. Should be a lot of curvy roads and mountains on 20.
We are going up to Flathead Lake, just north of Missoula, about 20 Jun.
Your route over Grand Coulee Dam should be great. We stayed a couple of days over in Bridgeport, WA (2004) and took a day trip to the GC Dam and another day trip over to Winthrop, WA on Highway 20. Great scenery. If you have to climb to the top of the Cascade on 20 that will be interesting. We have driven to the top of 20 from the Seattle side without our RV and that was quite a climb.
Awesome up there.
