Jun 18, 2019 - Buffalo Nickel

Fifty cents! That's what my snazzy new shirt cost at Glendive's Attic Thrift Shop. Peggy says that's where everyone in town shops and I can see why. I love this charming town and its friendly citizens. We had a day on the town - the hospital gift shop (where I found a buffalo nickel bracelet in keeping with the Great Bison Hunt) and the art gallery which Peggy supports, tasty lunch of nachos and sandwiches at the Beer Jug, a fairyland of a nursery next to the classic church-turned-kitchen wares and furniture store, and a scenic drive...

Jun 16, 2019 - Big

The day started with a BIG mystery, the Trinity. I went to church with Judy and enjoyed the sermon by a guest minister who gave a scholarly discourse on the Holy Trinity. I appreciated the prayer for forgiveness for our not being better stewards of the world (i.e. decimating the American Buffalo). And I loved the old hymns, In the Garden and Blessed Assurance. Another BIG was the hotdog fresh off the grill that the hospitality folks served up after worship in honor of Father's Day, yum. Then I was off to the BIG OPEN of Southeastern...

Jul 10, 2016 - July 10 - Glendive, MT

A Severe storm has been threatening us for the last few days. I guess there is no such thing as just rain here, when the rain comes it comes complete with hail, wind and tornadoes!! It has caused us to get a hotel room for the last few nights because everyone locally believes the threat, the sky usually supports the worst fears with the heavy dark clouds looming. We have been lucky ( and comfy) opting out for hotel rooms, but this storm better come tonight and be over with!! We got up early this morning to try and beat the rain. The...

Jun 14, 2016 - On The Road Again - Glendive, MT

Lynd and I left Helen, MT yesterday after a two+ week visit with our daughter Christina. It is always a special treat to be able to visit with Christina and meet some of her friends and co-workers. This year we were invited to their Crawfish Boil, which was a first for us. We had a very tasty time. We drove eight and half hours to Glendive, MT. Imagine, 8.5 hrs and we are still in Montana. It is indeed a very large state. Glendive is in Eastern Montana about 30 miles from the North Dakota border. I-94 E is a very good interstate with much...

2016 RV Trip

Aug 3, 2014 - Glendive, Montana

Tuesday July 29, 2014 --Leaving Devil Track Lake NF to Cloquet, MN We departed Devil Track Lake and headed back up the Gunflint Trail to Grand Marais Campground to dump tanks and fill with water. Lowell and I filled up with diesel but John did not need to fill. Of course, Betty’s Pies was on the agenda. We timed it perfectly for lunch. Everyone but Lowell had the Reuben sandwiches and he had Hot Beef. The Reuben’s were the best I had ever had and Barbara and John said they thought it was the best they had ever had also. Both of us bought a...

VNL Travels 2014

Jun 15, 2014 - Glendive, Montana

Today Ross & Marge left Bismarck around 0830 after watching the Robin Williams move, RV. They have seen the movie before but since they were early and were going to pick up another hour when crossing from Central to Mountain Time they decided to see the movie to its end. The movie is a great exaggeration of RV'ing but by the same token it covers just about everything that can go wrong with an RV and it's a great reminder that RV also means REPAIR VEHICLE. The weather at the time they left Bismarck was overcast and very damp. Neither Ross...

Sep 15, 2013 - Day 6 - Makoshika State Park

We decided to take this day and travel about 58 miles west to Glendive, MT (the "Gateway to the Dinosaur Trail") which we are going to begin to follow tomorrow. We went there to visit Makoshika (Ma-KO-shi-ka) State Park. Makoshika is an alternate spelling of a Lakota Indian phrase (mako sica) meaning land of bad spirits, "badlands." This formidable landscape was set aside as a state park in 1953. Over 10 species of dinosaurs have been found here including Triceratops, Edmontosaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rex. We primarily wanted to visit here to...

May 14, 2013 - Long (make-up) Day

Mon 5/13 48 degrees We headed west on I-94 this morning. We saw much more farmland. As with IA, some of these fields are hundreds, if not thousands, of acres. And the equipment they are using – holy crap! Some tractors have 3 wheels on each corner. How would you like to buy those tires?? It was interesting because not only is the equipment huge but it must be very expensive and much of the equipment looked new. A lot of John Deere green out there! And of course there were many more wind turbines. As we crossed into North Dakota, it was more...

Sep 10, 2012 - Bismarck, ND to Glendive, MT

We did some driving through some beautiful farmland in ND then close to the Montana border we past Medora (famous for pitch fork steak and a musical/comedy program) and Theodore Roosevelt National Park. We had been to both of them on our trip to Alaska and decided not to stop. Around Medora we saw beautiful painted rock formations but most of the drive was farmland, big hay fields and open ranges for cows. It looks very dry here. We have heard a few stories about the effect of the oil boom in ND. In fact the campground we are staying at...

Aug 14, 2012 - Glendive

We arrived in glendive yesterday, left menoken a day early. This is a dive, but the only place to stop before a long drive to great falls. We are now in mountain time. We are fortunate the campground had a spot for us as it poured rain all evening once we were parked. This area is booming economically because of the energy industry. The campground host says they are completely filled with workers who are building apts, etc for the energy company workers.

Summer 2012

Oct 5, 2011 - Glendive

Oct 5 Today was a straight shot across Montana to Glendive. Started out cool but ended up being 88 in Glendive. Most of Montana is miles and miles of pasture land and cattle. At one point we passed cattle being herded by several cowboys on horses. Only, place you see trees is when there is a creek or river. The middle of Montana is home to the Yogo Sapphire. As we leave Lewistown we enter hill country, lots more trees, smaller fields, but then it is back to more grassland. After checking in to the motel we had lunch at a little family...

Aug 7, 2011 - Glendive, MT - the flat tire

Glendive Park and CG, Glendive, MT. Another day with a quirk. Sat. eve Tom noticed passengers rear dual soft. Actually, tire pressure was 0 on Sunday. He managed to get enough air into it w/his air compressor to get to a gas station in town for real air..We went on the highway and stopped frequently and it wasn't holding so next “Flying J” said we don't have any services, Go to next town, Glendive, they have tire services. They do but it is Sunday and no one is open. In the meantime we have been in touch w/USAA roadside service and they...
