July 19 Spokane-Wallace-Missoula Tuesday morning we left for a continuation of our road trip. We picked up the 90 and headed East towards Missoula, MT stopping along the way at an old silver town of Wallace where we took a walk through the town. After an hour, we continued on our way arriving in Missoula by 4 PM. We stayed at a brand new Holliday Inn Express. It was beautiful and well designed. ... read more

This is the long awaited sequel to the Couer d'alene bike trip. Alert readers will remember we bailed at Wallace on our May trip due to snow on the trail up on Lookout Pass.

Past Hannibal, Flora, MO (Twains Birthplace) and on over the Pony Express, Oregon, California and Mormon Highways (YEP 4fer1!). The van is driving very easy and getting GOOD mileage (~13 average). First two nights I did the tent. One night near Mankato, KS was at THE BUGGIEST and THE LOUDEST campsite ever. And we thought the wildlife was bears and bunnies... NOPE... your favorite country ... read more
