After driving 3200 miles from Big Pine Key, Florida, we have arrived at Farragut State Park in Idaho. We are in the same RV spot and will have the same volunteer jobs.
We immediately started one of our jobs - monitoring 50 bluebird houses. So far, out of 50 houses, we have 28 nests, 10 of the nests have eggs for a total of 41 eggs. 2 houses had a bluebird sitting on a nests and we were not able to count the number of eggs. 2 of the houses had squirrels. It looks like we are in for a very busy summer!

Since the houses are spread over several miles of roads and trails, we take a Park vehicle. Last year we had a old, persnickety, Kawasaki Mule that stranded us a few times.
As an incentive to get us to come back this year, we were told we would have a brand new UTV to drive this year.
Take a look at our sweet new ride:
We’re looking forward to the following 4 months and hope to get out and see some new areas this summer.
