Be patient dear readers.
Our plan was to move tomorrow, to another RV Park up in the Bingham City area. We may still do that, but there's in increasing chance of unsettled weather moving in tonight, and we may wait another day. Depending on what we wake to tomorrow morning, we'll make the decision at that time.
