Boise Area

We're suppose to be picking up our new TT on the Sept 27th. We will probably be staying the night in the Boise area, heading back to CA through Oregon, down to Winnemucca NV and then into CA. Any one know of a good place to park near the Oregon/Idaho line....maybe around Merridian? Or places we should stay away from. Any advice will be appreciated! Thanks, Jac

When we are in the Boise area we always stay the Ambassador RV Resort in Caldwell, right across the street is a Flying J for fuel. You are not to far from the 55 that will take you to the 95 to head south.

The J' has a Denny's if you like that.

The Sage which is just up the street is ok as well.

Thanks, I appreciate the info! When we were in Boise looking at our new trailer, it seemed we had a target on our tailgate...no wrecks but a couple of close calls...I kind of want to know where we are going instead of the "honey turn here, as we past the turn" Thank again! Jac

Thanks Ford for the offer! We're heading out tomorrow morning...hope to be on the road by 7am, if I can get the Phil half rolling by then! We're getting excited...I think we have everything in place...insurance, payments, stuff to put in the new TT...I'm sure I'm missing 1000 things, but we've got a good start. Hopefully, the weather will break...we've had high winds (nothing driving over 9ft high) rain and oh yes, snow...yes snow in Sept in CA...go figure!

I have never pulled a trailer in snow, do you need to put chains on the trailer wheels?

That would depend on the chain laws of the state you are in.
Calif. and Ore. are two that I know of who would make you chain.

Donner pass in Calif. and the Blue Mountains in ORE.

Have fun and good luck! I've stayed across from the 'J' as well and it was fine.

We got our TT Sat...a few problems, but we did get it...We stayed at the Ambassador. Very easy to hook up, close to diesel and CW. Then stayed in Burns, OR...nice little RV place there and then headed home Sun through the horrible/heavy rains and 50 mile an hour winds...Phil says the TT handled great! I felt only a couple of the big gusts...the rest of the time I never felt it. Was glad to get home though!! Thanks for all of the advice...the Ambassador was a good call
