#1: Spodefest cell phones

Posted on 2006-07-23 15:30:02 by Chris Buckley

Not that I would really consider using a cell phone at
spodefest, my concern is getting lost on the way there. Do
cell phones work there????? is anyone who knows the area
bringing one??? If so could you eeshmail your cell number to
me, I will only use it if the kid gets us lost on the way
there.
Thanks,
Chris

Most cell phones will work for a little ways out of Mtn. Home, then
for a while again as you pass Bennet Mtn (~15 miles out), then not
again until you are almost to the turnoff from Hwy 20 to Featherville.
After you drop off to go down to lake level, no coverage.

There is a free local phone near the camping area, long distance
collect or CC calls are possible.

Have you and Chris Jr. read the driving instructions I've posted on
the SpodeFest forum? If you can make your way from CA to Boise, it's
pretty easy to find Baumgartner from there.

<a href="http://spodefest.net/forum/index.php?s=682505a880b3566d400e1e3d9931d257&amp;showtopic=37" target="_blank"> http://spodefest.net/forum/index.php?s=682505a880b3566d400e1 e3d9931d257&amp;showtopic=37</a>

Mapquest directions and map, ignore everything before step #5 and the
&quot;portions unpaved&quot; notes, it's all paved to Featherville.

<a href="http://makeashorterlink.com/?P4951237D" target="_blank">http://makeashorterlink.com/?P4951237D</a>

From Boise, go east on I-84 to the second Mtn Home exit (~45 miles -
exit #95), then north on Hwy 20 (~30 miles) to just past milepost 127.
This junction is easy to spot, large sign (Pine, Featherville,
Anderson Ranch Reservoir), there are a couple of large structures
there, highway dept shed, gravel piles and some corrals.

Turn left (north) stay on this road until you reach Pine (~15 miles),
a little town by the lake. As you enter downtown Pine, bear right at
the one junction, continue about 10 miles to Featherville.

Stay on pavement through Featherville (sweeps right) until it turns to
dirt (1 mile). Continue on this road (FR227) for about 11 miles, look
for big sign on the right &quot;Baumgartner Campground&quot;. It will be in a
wide, flat, open section, just past the new house being built next to
the road.

At the sign, turn right, cross the bridge, turn right then about 1/4
mile take the next right down a small rocky hill. At the bottom of the
hill you'll see a large grove of trees off to your right, we'll be
back in there. You will zig right then left, then right again to enter
the grove.

You've probably posted this, but what day do you plan to pass through
Boise? I won't be around, but I can give you some local numbers of
people who probably could help if you have troubles.

Tiny detail, but my Verizon phone lost signal as soon as you got into the
rocks before the drop down. Right around the end of the prurient area.

Chris.. if you want my map from last time, I'll send it to you. It was very
straight forward though and there was some &quot;thing&quot; to look for at the turn
off from 20... some tanks or something. I'm sure it's mentioned in the
instructions. Watch out for cows as you drive from 20 to the reservoir.

&gt;off from 20... some tanks or something. I'm sure it's mentioned in the
&gt;instructions. Watch out for cows as you drive from 20 to the reservoir.

I should mention that Idaho is &quot;open range&quot; territory, that is to say
the cattle/sheep have the right of way on the highways and roads. Hit
one and it's your liability to compensate the owner for his loss and
up to you and your insurance company to fix your vehicle. Remember,
cows am stupid. Just because they are faced away from you, walking
away doesn't mean they won't turn and jump in front of you at the last
minute.

Also, if you are driving highway 20 at night, dusk or dawn, be very
wary of deer. Once you climb the hill out of Mtn. Home, they are all
over the place. As you climb higher, towards the turnoff to Pine, they
become more plentiful, especially on the way down to the lake. I drove
in once just before sunrise and saw at least 100 deer, in the road or
next to it, on the way off the prarie down to the lake, it was a slow
trip.


BTW, the &quot;rattlesnake moth&quot; Mike refered to in another post, is just a
grasshopper that clicks when it flies. Rattlers make more of a
hissing, dry rattle sound, these hoppers go clack-clack-clack. Hopper
patterns work very well on the trout in the river at this time of year
too...
