A Coeur d’Alene day…

After lazying around the rig this morning we left about noon on a bunch of errands, but our first stop was at a Starbucks for coffee and a danish.

Then it was off to Bed Bath & Beyond to pick out a gift for our daughter Brandi’s bridal shower. Since she reads our blog, I won’t say what we got for her.

Then we walked to the Borders Books next door to check out the magazines.

Leaving there we drove over to the Post Office to drop off some letters.

By then it was about 3 pm and we decided it was time for a little early dinner so we stopped off at Casa de Oro, a very nick little Mexican restaurant we ate at two years ago when we were here.. And it was still good.


After dinner we found a car wash and got the truck washed. Jan said it was about time since she was having trouble seeing out her window.

Leaving there we drove over to the Fred Myers for gas and groceries. It was nice to find cheaper gas. The last time we bought gas for the truck in California it was $3.30. Here it was $2.73. A big difference.

And the other day when we left Westport, WA  I paid $3.70 for diesel.  Here today it was $3.20.

That’s 50 cents a gallon!  And at 100 to 120 gallons that adds up. Too bad I couldn’t wait.

After doing our shopping in Fred Mayer’s we headed back to the rig for the night.

Tomorrow we head out to Garrison, MT for one night, and then on to Billings for one night.

We will be in Gillette, WY for 4 or 5 days starting Friday the 26th for the American Coach Rally.

More tomorrow…
