We spent our first night in Ketchum, Id. The high yesterday was in the forties and our low temperature was 22.5 F last night. This morning all our windows are frosty, we heated the interior to a balmy 60 degrees for our Sunday brunch. Deb baked some tender and scrumptious muffins to accompany our eggs and hot tea. We’re basking in the warmth from our Wave6 catalytic heater.
Several times we’ve wondered if we should have installed a Wave4 heater instead. This Wave6, even on low, can drive us outta here with its heat. Not today — sure am glad we have the 6 instead. It’s been on high all morning and feels just fine, thank you.
Funny, our Club’s literature for this Jazz Festival Rally advertised warm Indian Summer week in Ketchum and Sun Valley. Apparently the copy (especially the warm part) is recycled, and they update the particulars as needed each year. A couple of people we’ve met here say they remember it was sometimes warm for the week, they think . . . No harm done — we’re glad we’re here and trying out cool weather camping.
Last night we turned off the catalytic heater and set our furnace thermostat to 45 F, it’s lowest setting, to try and prevent frozen (=burst) water lines. We played cards then Rummikub after 10pm and went to bed. The furnace came on at 2am, then approx once an hour. The plumbing all works this morning! The sun is shining brightly and we’ll turn the furnace off for the day.
We’re off to some of the Trailing of the Sheep activities — we’ll talk to you later. Oh, how about some pictures?
Yesterday we posted text only to catch up a little on where we are. Today let’s see some Idaho pictures from our last week or so. . .
