Sep 5, 2013 - Sept 3, 2013 - 24th Stop - Hardin, MT

Tuesday, 9/3/13 We left Cody behind this morning and headed for Hardin, MT, which is right off I 90. The RV Park is at least half empty. When we checked in, we talked with the owners and they told us all the problems they have with RVers. I was surprised because all the folks I speak with are very conscientious. Wednesday, 9/4/13 Today we drove to the Little Big Horn Battlefield National Park. This is the second time we have been here. The first was in 2004. On the hill where all of Custer’s men were killed markers were placed in 1890 where...

Jul 7, 2013 - Montanaaaaah......

Ed and I suffered thru S. Dakota and into Montana. We both have a sinus/cold/allergy attack but took turns driving/sleeping until we arrived, then I fell asleep, while Ed went to McDonalds (we were too tired to cook dinner). Rested for the entire day so we can explore HOPEFULLY tomorrow! Took a tour of the Little Bighorn battlefield. Very interesting for Ed and I, the kids thought that it was not as interesting as Gettysburg battlefield. Kids and I went to a ranger program that explained the battle in front of the monument on Last Stand...

Aug 13, 2012 - Making friends in Hardin, MT

It was a cool morning and the 90 degree pool, that's heated by the hot springs, was hard to leave. We spent a lot of time swimming this morning, but new adventures called to us and we had to get on the road. We traveled about two hundred miles today across Montana into Hardin. Our destination was another KOA. We arrived early enough for the kids to enjoy a much cooler pool, though the air temperature was well into the high 80s. We are finding the campgrounds to be less crowded as we head east. There were only two other kids at this...

Heading West

Jul 28, 2012 - Day 25 Spearfish City SD to Hardin MT

Sad morning but all things must come to an end and we must get on with our journey. In folding up camp we kept saying how the bike couldn't have broke down at a better place, got to spend more time with friends and with only having our feet we became more in love with the sights of Spearfish, SD. Visited with Anita and Tom one last time before a last ride through the canyon. Along the way we ran into a couple that were from Alaska, so they gave us some insight on places to see if we make it there next year, we also shared our love for...

Jul 1, 2012 - Miles City, MT to Hardin, MT

Driving from Miles City to Hardin, MT we followed the Yellowstone River on our right with the smoke from wild fires to our left. Terrain is getting more and more mountainous. Temperatures were 100+ degrees. While in Hardin we visited the Little Big Horn Battlefield, N.M. ; it was 104 degrees and blustery wind. We had a park ranger give us an excellent talk on the terrible 2-day siege between Custer (U.S. Cavalry) and Crazy Horse (Indians). Such greed and loss over land; the draw = gold. I did not realize that in addition to the 100+ Indian...

Jun 20, 2012 - Custer's Last Stand

We had an incredible day today visiting the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. “This area memorializes the U.S. Army's 7th Cavalry and the Sioux and Cheyenne in one of the Indian's last armed efforts to preserve their way of life. Here on June 25 and 26 of 1876, 263 soldiers, including Lt. Col. George A. Custer and attached personnel of the U.S. Army, died fighting several thousand Lakota, and Cheyenne warriors.” We spent 4 ½ hours going through the 5 sq. mile area, reading all the plaques, driving to all the battle sites,...

Jun 19, 2012 - Hardin, Montana

We left early (for us) and headed east on I-90 towards Billings, and just 2 hours down the road we pulled into Hardin, Montana. We will be staying here for 2 nights. It is the home to the Northern Cheyenne and Crow Indian tribes. It is only 1.4 sq. miles, incorporated in 1907. The town is the youngest and newest of the Big Horn County, also being the seat of the County. The downtown area is very small, not a pretty town. The city park has a monument to Gen. George Custer that sits on the edge of the park. The town appears to have been...

Jun 17, 2012 - Hardin, MT - Little Big Horn Battlefield

Drove the 163 miles to Hardin, MT. It is close to the Little Big Horn Battlefield where George A. Custer and 262 men met their death at the hands of the Lakota Sioux, Northern Cheyenne and the Arapaho people. We set in on a couple of Ranger programs that were very interesting[I knew somethings about the battle, but they brought out facts I didn't know. Needed Lowell Smith here for a subject matter expert. This was a good day. Tomorrow we head toward Rapid City, SD. Until next time.

Oct 5, 2011 - Nothing Bad Happened Today

Nothing bad happened today - probably because we didn't move today. We are in Hardin, Montana, which is in the southern middle of Montana at an RV park (no Walmart tonight)near the Crow Reservation. We stopped in this area of Montana because Ed had heard that there was great fishing on the Big Horn River and he was hoping to be able to do some fishing. But we discovered you need a guide with a boat to get to the good fishing spots and it was too expensive and difficult to get a guide this time of year. He was mildly disappointed, but it was...

Sep 6, 2011 - Hardin, MT

Tue, 06 Sep: All things must end, and so it was with our nine day sojourn at Gillette's Wyoming Cam-Plex Boxelder campground. Another group was due in today so those of us diehards had to vacate today. We got a leisurely start, which was a good thing since being in one place for nine days we tended to take lots of stuff out. It all had to be stowed before getting underway. Check engine oil, dump holding tanks, check tire pressure, etc., etc. We used our checklist to ensure nothing was overlooked. A few minutes before ten we pulled out of...

Aug 22, 2011 - Miles City, MT/Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument

When we left the campground in Miles City, it was sunny and 80 degrees. Just outside the city, we spotted the Range Riders Museum and decided to stop. The lady who ran the museum was the daughter of long-time museum curator. She share some of the history, noting that some local cowboys felt that their way of life was disappearing. The five of them got together and called for a meeting of anyone in a 100-mile range who might be interesting in preserving the rancher/cowboy way of life to assemble for a meeting in January 1939. Over 400...

Aug 15, 2011 - Hardin, MT

We are in Hardin for our 2nd visit at the Grandview RV Park and as we remembered, the view isn’t very grand. But, it is in the right spot and not overly expensive. Our drive today was on two interstates, 25 and 90 and now that we are finally into Montana, maybe the temperature will drop – or not.
