Scrabbling Across The West Episode 31

Mountains near Logan, UT.

June 6th 2016. Day 31.

Recorded at Mountain Shadows RV Park, Draper, UT.

We woke up at Givens Springs near Melba, ID, after a night of amazing storms. Not much sleep but a great show! Very hard rain and tremendous lightning and thunder. Our Coleman tent held up like a champ.

A covered wagon built by Steve Givens to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the site. Made from new and antique parts, it is reminiscent of the one used by Steve's great-grandparents, Milford and Mattie Givens,when they settled there in 1879.

No WiFi to get our GPS started so the AAA TripTik came in handy. We discuss Steve, our host at Givens Springs, and his family history and the history of the springs.

We talked to a young woman in Logan, UT, who gave us an interesting angle on growing up around mountains.

After a brief detour we drove to Draper, UT, through dust storms. In spite of heavy traffic in Salt Lake City we made it to Draper and the Mountain Shadows RV Park. One of our hosts, Braxton, has grown up a bit.

We arrived around 7:30 pm so we went looking for food and found a place that Dave had performed at the previous year, New York Pizza Patrol. What a surprise!

Dave won at Scrabble last night and was accused of cheating because he kept taking all the best places on the board.

Dave has a show tomorrow in Holladay, UT, so early to bed after Scrabble.
