US 287 North of Three Forks

I-15 Rest Stop


Before we could be on our way this morning, Barb had to stop at a diesel repair shop to have her battery checked. The warning light kept coming on. The diesel tech couldn’t find anything wrong.

We had a very pleasant drive through some beautiful country. Montana’s mountains are much easier to negotiate than the ones in Colorado. In general, the inclines are gradual and the curves are gentle. We crossed the Missouri River several times.

I think the electrical gremlins are following me! At my first site today I didn’t have electricity. I checked the connection at the site next to me with my surge guard and it had power; so I moved to that site. Then I went to the office to tell the owner. He checked the first site himself and found that it, indeed, had no power. He had his electrician repair it.

After we had gotten settled, we went to an RV dealer to see if he had any truck campers. He had only one small one, which Barb did not like. Several companies that made them have gone out of business.

From there we went to Fuddruckers for dinner. I had their grilled chicken sandwich, which was good. After we got home, I did my laundry. There are only four washers and five driers. I had to wait quite a while for washers. It seems that a large RV park like this one could support at least twice that many machines.
