Camp Native founder David Woodbury of Spearfish, S.D., will be bicycling through Grangeville this weekend and staying at Evergreen Suites Sunday night.
Woodbury’s mission with Camp Native is to encourage people to camp in the outdoors which can be “life changing.”
Woodbury also advocates for dozens of city and state economic officials in smaller Rocky Mountain towns to discuss ways they can lure similar high-paying tech companies away from the West Coast’s tech centers.

The Chief Lookingglass Powwow in Kamiah was pretty spectacular Friday night. Aside from the beautiful regalia and dancing, the Tribe honored all veterans present with a prayer, dance and blessing. It was very touching. If you have not been to a powwow, attend one. Culturally there is so much to learn and so much history and aesthetically it’s amazing.
It was great to see everyone at the Idaho County Fair last week. Now, it’s time for school and fall sports.
