We woke up this morning with more snow on the ground than last night. It was quite pretty, but we were all wondering what our drive out of West Yellowstone, Mt. was going to be like. At around 8:00 the five RV's were all lined up and ready to go. Dorrie and Quentin, Sue and Allan, and Tom and Peggy were heading to Great Falls, Mt., and Ray and I along with John and Diane heading towards Missoula, Mt.. Although the roads were snow covered, they were already melting when we left at 8:00 AM. We took Rt. 287 and I must say the scenery along the way was quite beautiful. There were majestic snow covered mountains surrounding many lakes. We drove around Lake Hebgen, about 40 miles north of Yellowstone, and Ray would have like ... read more

As the itinerary for the 2014 chapter of The Great Adventure became more distinct, my plans called for a week-long stop in Lewiston ID. After I lost my cell phone on the Missoula to Saint Regis to Libby to Kalispell Loop on Monday, September 22, 2014, those plans changed. My phone was found by a couple who live in Noxon MT – a town I had passed through in the far northwest of Montana as I made my way to Libby. A long story made short, they called my sister who is listed as an ICE (In Case of Emergency) contact who contacted me, yadda-yadda-yadda. Arrangements were made for me to get my phone on the way to Idaho on Wednesday. Instead of embarking on another scenic drive, Tuesday found me in the planning mode. Massaging ... read more

Montana is so beautiful! No photos today, it was a total driving day. I woke up around 5am to the sound of trucks departing the hotel. I guess the hunters were setting off early. So, I walked Oskar then hopped back into bed. It was still dark, so no need to be up so early. I did consider getting the kids up and hitting the road early but opted for the warm bed instead. Today was our earliest start yet with us getting on the road before 9am. Not bad!! Our day was very uneventful with us spending the majority of the day in the car. We took many quick breaks to keep us on the move. We did take lunch in Bozeman, MT at big M's with a playplace. Molly needed to burn off some ... read more

July 15 We left Eagle, ID around 11 AM after the movers came to pick up the furnishings that we are taking to the desert. After a quick stop at Jeff & Lyndi's to say goodby to all, we were on the road. They will be very busy the next few days moving into our house. Being that it was Friday, we decided to take the longer route via Oregon on the 84. The alternative was taking the 55 through McCall but since that is a two lane road and there would be many campers and boats we choose the highway instead. It is about a 6 1/2 hour trip to Coeur D'Alene. Luckily they are on Pacific time so we were able to gain an hour to compensate for our late start. The trip through ... read more
