About Tim Bondy and the Bondyweb Website

(Updated December 11, 2013)

About the website
Thanks for stopping by my little space on the web. My name is Tim Bondy and I created this site for a variety of reason but mainly to document my adventures in and around Idaho. As Idaho isn't known for its numerous bloggers, this website is rather unique.

- Day hiking trips around Mountain Home, Idaho.
- Rock hounding adventures wherever Tim and Toni plant our hiking boots on the ground.
- ATV trips into the Owyhee Mountains and deserts plus the Boise National Forest.
- Local Mountain Home business news. Hopefully I can convince a few more businesses that doing a short article on what they do or what they are all about is beneficial. Hard nut to crack though.

- Local and Idaho Election and Campaign information.

About Tim Bondy
I have been married to Toni Bondy for the better part of a decade. She is a wonderful and beautiful women who has tolerated me, taught me, loved me and took care of me since I retired from the United State Air Force in 2003. I consider myself to be blessed and the most fortunate person on the face of the earth. We are empty-nesters and living the dream in Mountain Home, Idaho.

Tim and Toni Bondy of Mountain Home

Toni and I have been living in Mountain Home, Idaho since late December 2007. The move from Sumter, South Carolina to Idaho in 2007 was absolutely one of the best things I have done in my life. While I have some heartburn with Mountain Home and Idaho, the good outweighs the bad by a ton. This is why I can say, I plan on living in Mountain Home until my last heartbeat.

Tim Bondy Politics

My Political Ambitions
In 2011, I stepped up to the plate and ran for a seat on Mountain Home City Council. I lost miserably while getting a whole 5% of the popular vote. It was an experience I shall never forget and likely never repeat.

For those of you who have political aspirations, my advice is to go all in. Buy into those campaign lawn signs, get as social as you possibly can and hope for the best. And if you don't think small town politic is a rough and tumble “game”, you'd be wrong. Politics brings out the absolute worst in people. If you want some one-on-one advice from the loser of a local election, contact me. I'd love to give you “all of my insight” and help you not make the same mistakes I made.

Future of Tim Bondy and Business in Idaho
My Business Ambitions
From what I have been told, running your own small business is extremely gratifying. Heaping all the titles like CEO, CFO and head window washer onto one person must take courage and dedication. Once that right idea comes along, I want to be ready to take on these titles and open up a business in Mountain Home. Do you think we're ready for a web design and marketing business here? I think so.

    Just out of curiosity I typed your name into Google and yours was the first site I found. I can't believe you did a full term in the USAF- i did 4 and 2 in the army- it was enough. How has the web business gone? I teach computing in college now, but not in the USA. Take care. Jeremy

  • Ray Bartee  - Creat site

    Happened on your site via a "Mountain Home, Idaho" search on youtube. Great videos, and very interesting website. I also live in Mt Home, and hike, hunt, fish, and ride this beautiful state. Keep up the good work, I may be voting for you someday.

  • Karl Schmidt  - Family history of Josephus Lakes mine and cabin

    I have been contemplating how to tell the story of my family and the years we spent at Josephus. My step grandfather was Sol Hasbrouck and his family owned the mining claim which encompassed both sides of the valley including the lakes. In those days the forest service would unload the mule pack train at Josephus and haul the Lookout Person into Soldier Mtn. for fire service thru out the summer. At some point the family relinquished property around the lakes for camping and in turn the Forest Service would maintain the roads. Since helicopters now due the duty the roads are not as accessible as they were. I have more tales and photos perhaps I should start a web page to guide people in that area of Idaho.
    I am the last of my family to share this area of what it was.
    If you have questions your welcome to e-mail.

  • Jack & Betty  - Rockhound Stuff

    Hi Tim:
    Have been looking at your site and an am convinced that, concerning rockhounding in southern Idaho, you have "been & know everywhere."

    Bitty & I are tentatively planning a trip into your area of expertise and would appreciate a guiding word.

    Our question, being restricted to information on the internet is thus "at the tourist level."

    Without infringing on your "special cites to be protected at all costs," can you give us a suggestion or two concerning the Succor and Bruneau areas, (or any other area).

    We are primarily interested in "gem type" materials.

    We do not expect to find "museum level" specimens ---just something to find for the experience.

    We are experienced enough to know that you "find" to the degree you are willing to apply the effort ---to us that means hours of walking or digging if necessary.

    We only have "non-rough-road" transportation (RV).

    Thanks for anything you can offer.
