S. A. T. W. P. Episode 44

June 6th 2017. Day 6.

Jerome, ID.

We are in the KOA community room.

It has been a fair day but sobering.

We were up early, had oatmeal and a shower.

Then off to the Minidoka Internment Camp near Jerome, Idaho.

We talk about what we learned during our 2-mile hike and visit to the interpretive center.

Dave saw a snake and took some pictures of it. We also saw a yellow bird that we couldn’t identify, probably a Scott’s Oriole.

The same snake!

We drove into Jerome and went to Choate’s Diner. The food was great, good service and clean. Reasonably priced. Triple B burger and grilled chicken sandwich with stuff. All good, 6/7 tiles.

The nearby fossil beds didn’t seem like anything we wanted to check out because you can’t actually see the fossil beds.

We did some walking around the KOA and then did some online work to keep the business going.

At Minidoka.

Dave went and played guitar at the ice cream social, lots more people came to the social because of it.

There was a couple who were listening to Dave play and we sat and talked with them about their bees and farm after the ice cream was packed up. They were Richard and Twink Bumann, from Olivenhain, CA. Really nice people with a beautiful dog.


We are both red as lobsters, badly sunburned.

Dave has rigged up screens for the van windows and we now have a fan. Tonight we are going to need it.

Our Scrabble game!

What is the official sign-off? Every where’s a winner? We don’t know yet!
