After the race started I took my last sail on the bay and then loaded the boat back on the trailer and then Colorado bound.
For this leg of the trip I headed east on Interstate 90 through eastern Washington, Idaho, Montana and then south on Interstate 25 through Wyoming and home to Colorado.
For the first night I stopped in one of my favorite campgrounds: Quarts Flats in MT. This is a USFS campground about 30 minutes west of Missoula. A great ‘overnight’ place to stop along the Interstate system … well spaced spots, just off the I-90 (take the Quartz Flat Rest Area exit) and on I-90.
Have some work to do on the Caribou Lite –
- I ran out of propane, poor planning on my part, and kicked on the 12V to keep the fridge cool until I could get the tank filled. The 12V didn’t work! Now I need to figure out why.
- Complete the fix to the dinette table using bedding compound.
- Still have the problem with the water pump not self priming … the pump actually worked fine for the first 2/3rd of the trip and then started not priming during the two stops in MT.
- I’m hoping to get the 2016 Tundra set up with camper tie downs and air bags soon so I can go camping with the new truck.
