By the time we awoke, Mary Anne’s cold had intensified. I texted Capt.Paul and let him know that we were going home. We thought about leaving the RV at a campground in Ritzville and taking the car home. Then I’d drive back there, spend the night, and go back to Libby. But by the time we’d gassed-up in Coeur d’Alene, Paul had called back, saying the Kootenai River was running high due to all the rain in that area. Subsequently, fishing was not good. And the weather forecast was 5-6 days with rain. So we decided to keep heading west on I-90 and go home.
About eleven hours after leaving Missoula, we pulled into our driveway. I’d driven 515 miles that day and 335 miles the previous day. We’d gone 850 miles in two days in the motorhome, pulling the car.
