2015 Montana, Calgary Stampede, Icefield Parkway travel blog


We arrived Thursday afternoon after a 325 mile trip from Troy, AL to our home near Green Cove Springs, FL. I have tabulated the expenses for our 200 day trip and they are listed below. They were quite a bit lower this year mostly due the lower fuel costs, less eating out and less Mothership repairs. Campground fees were higher this year mostly due to where we stayed - Columbia Falls and St. Mary, MT, though not the highest daily rate had a much higher average and we stayed in those two for almost three months total.
