Jul 30, 2015 - Mosey On, Miles City, MT

The wind howled all day yesterday so we just stayed put in the coach. A mobile RV repair guy stopped by but wasn't the slightest bit interested in tackling our basement air-conditioning problem. So, we hit the road early this morning and drove on through North Dakota. It was pretty and we wish we could have explored some here but priority is now to get to Charlie's in Sunset, UT as quickly as possible. We fueled up in Beach, ND and said good-bye to the state. Hopefully, we can come back some day and see a little more of it. We stopped for...

Summer 2015 & Beyond

Sep 16, 2014 - Lewistown to Miles City

Today we drove east from Lewistown on state route 200. It is a narrow ribbon of a highway that undulates through Montana’s rolling landscape. There were no towns and no places to pull off the road in the See Ya. When Mother Nature called I was beginning to become desperate for a spot to stop. As we crested a hill there it was – a beautiful pull off. But, by the time I saw it, it was too late to pull in. Once passed the spot there was no way to turn around to get to it. Then a miracle happened. A sign appeared saying, “Rest Area – 1 Mile”....

Jul 16, 2013 - The sun is shining!

What a beautiful morning to enjoy our last day seeing North Dakota. The landscape changed as we continued west on Rt I94. The flatness turned into rolling hills of farm land. Lots of cattle some horses too. We start to see some windmills and oil diggers, both were hard at work. As we neared the western part of North Dakota we entered into the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The views were amazing! We stopped at the visitors center to catch a glimpse of the Painted Canyon, also known as the Badlands of North Dakota. They are so different...

Jul 14, 2013 - Rapid City, SD to Miles City, MT

We slept in a bit this morning and then got ready for the road. The travel day was wonderful. Cool, spotty sprinkles of rain, and then overcast day so the sun was not in our eyes. We took I-90 from Rapid City to Belle Forsche. We were able to get gas there at an easy in and out station. We took on 49.54 gallons so we had about 10 to go. It wasn't cheap at $3.65 but it was the cheapest we could find on our route. I really like Gas Buddy but I wish they would use Google Maps as I have to transfer over to them to get the little guy to look...

Summer 2013 Travels

Jul 3, 2013 - GNP to Miles City MT with a stop at Little Bighorn Battlefield

We got off to a little later of a start than I wanted to today. We left West Glacier and headed to Crow Agency MT where the Little Bighorn Battlefield is. I was really glad we went a little out of our way to see it. The kids still decided to spend most of the time in the car. I guess like the old saying goes "you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink". Other than making everyone get out to go in the visitor center the kids didn't get out at the roadside stops along the battlefield. I give up.... From there we drove to...

Jul 2, 2013 - Travel day - Billings, MT to Miles City, MT

We didn't do anything while in Billings ... just hung around the park and enjoyed our site, after all it was a $85.00 per night site. We had already visited Billings and the surrounding area including Custer's Last Stand .. so hanging around our KOA was fun. It is the first KOA ever and it was nice. The travel day started and ended great. No rain! No wind! No construction! Now that is a good travel day. Upon arrival we had to move sites to get the computers on-board the coach to accept the site. Well it finally accepted another site and we...

Sep 23, 2012 - Onward and Eastward

After a rest in Bozeman, it was time to continue. The decision was made to have a short day and ended in Miles City, Montana with the hopes of a nice peaceful night. The campground was nice enough, but the constant train horns all night dashed those hopes. We walked to the old downtown and viewed some of the historic buildings.

Sep 4, 2012 - Headed East

After saying good bye to everyone we pulled out just after 8AM. Before we got to I-94 a car flagged us down to tell us that one our basement doors had popped open with the door sticking out on the drivers of the coach. It is 600 miles to Bismarck but we pulled into Miles City, Mt. our half way stop just after 2PM to spend the night and visit the Range Riders Museum (www.rangeridersmuseum.org). We've spent the night here a couple of times before with out going to the museum but this time we have a special reason. The great grandfather of...

Jul 28, 2012 - To Miles City, MT

It is a travel day. We move 2 ½ hours northeast. The first hour is on a wonderful country road. The rest is on the Interstate. The Interstate follows the Yellowstone River. We see the river a couple of times. We settle in at the RV Park early. We did not call ahead. How busy can Miles City be? The answer is that they are very busy! We have a site. Whew! I get the laundry done. We can hunt for agates on the Yellowstone River but it is too hot! We rest up. Tomorrow, we move further east. We are headed to Minnesota. Of course, we need to get...

Jul 20, 2012 - Miles City, Montana

We woke up to another hot day. It was 23 C when we left Bismarck, ND. We were a little worried about the bikes, as we woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of hail hitting the window. Thank goodness the bikes were OK. We headed for Montana, driving mostly on secondary roads. Although it was another scorcher, the day went well, and we called it a day when we hit Miles City, Montana.

Jul 12, 2012 - Fort Union Trading Post & Yellowstone River Valley

As soon as we left the campground this morning, we saw some bison. We were very excited as we followed one along the road. He kept looking back at us. We were not sure what he was planning. He waited until we passed before crossing the road behind us. His mother must have taught him road crossing safety. We made the drive into Williston uneventfully as the rotated cracked tire held, and got our new tires installed and were back on the road by 11:45 a.m. We got to Fort Union Trading Post when it was only 11:15. We were not sure what time it...
