Restoring aluminum on an iron chassis

July 24 Silverwood and the Polar Vortex


The Couer d’ Alene stop allowed us to spend a day at Silverwood Theme Park, full of family fun and kettle corn. There was all kinds of excitement at Silverwood. The storm that had caused us to pull over in Ritzville the previous day had put on a big show at Silverwood, and there were trees down. In the Silverwood campground, We saw two rvs that had been somewhat smushed due to falling trees, and talked to many people who were back because they had gotten free tickets due because most of the rides had shut down the previous day. The day was rather chilly. We learned the hard way that people can pay 25 cents to spray you on water rides where you think you might not get too wet (Log ride). They probably targeted our sweet, innocent family because we put on our rain coats to ride. Take that! My son and husband are part Canadian polar bear, so they wanted to spend some time in the water park, called Boulder Beach. I made a joke as we were walking through the near-deserted water park, calling it “Hypothermia Beach.” A lifeguard overheard me and said that someone had actually gotten hypothermia. Instead of getting hypothermia, Ella and I opted for a spell of vertigo and rode the carousel 7 times in a row.  We reunited as a family. I took Shay on his first roller coaster ride: The Tremor. It just may have been my last roller coaster ride.
