Today’s Top Post: Idaho or bust, by bus

On her blog 'From a Simple Mind,'  Cis Gors recalls her move from Rhode Island to Idaho in 1982. She writes: Our next fun, was going thru Montana. Another highway with huge hills. Some of them leveling off for a mile or two at the top, and other were barely a half block and down you go again.. Which was really like a roller coaster, as you are pushing it, trying to climb the hill… to the speed of 8 miles per hour for the bus.. floorboarding it all the way up, only to find out …it was straight down and at speeds  of what seem like 80 mph… trying not to use the brake very much… for two reasons. One, not to wear it out. Two to keep the speed coming, so when you started toclimb the next one, you still has some momentum going, to keep going over the top of the next one…

By early dawn light, we came to the WELCOME TO IDAHO  sign. We stopped and had our picture taken by the sign. I think one of the kids wanted to kiss the sign, he was so see it. More here.
How did you arrive in Idaho?
