Going West 2014

Jul 13, 2014 - Sun, 7/13

This morning we quickly, as much as we can be quick, packed up and left the campground. Goodbye to Birdland Bay and went to Minnie's for breakfast. Our camping neighbor Larry was there and we said goodbye again. The food was good and over generous. We ate and started out for Missoula and John and Mary's RV Campground. Off we went. After about 10 min we were instructed to turn onto a dirt road for 4 miles. After debate, we decided to try as the road looked good. The road grew narrower with the usual precipitous unguarded drops and we drove...

To Alaska and Back

Jun 19, 2014 - Missoula, Montana

Marge and Ross spent two nights in Billings, Montana and Monday morning they planned on heading to Butte, Montana when Ross discovered a water leak above the bathroom sink. It had been raining very heavily all night and it was still raining lightly when Ross found the leak. Ross traced the leak to what he thought was the source of the leak. What Ross found was a two inch section of caulk that was extremely thin and it seemed it was simply held in place by the paint. Ross was running his hand along the seam between the roof cover the wall...

Jun 15, 2014 - Day three

Today the bear went over the mountain. We drove through the Sawtooth Range from Sun Valley along the Wood River and then found the headwaters of the Salmon River and followed it on into Montana. The drive was mountainous-ly gorgeous with lots of happy fishermen enjoying a perfect Father’s Day on the rivers. Other sights we enjoyed were the town of Clayton ID, population 7; snow clouds on Trapper Peak, elevation 10,157; a magnificent arched-necked Palomino poised on a butte; and a series of yellow diamond road signs warning us to watch for:...

May 24, 2014 - Rain in Montana

Woke up to rain this morning. First drive in the rain. So I posted more pictures. Let me tell you about this KOA in Missoula. First it is right smack in the middle of town. Second it is not for us. It not only has RV spaces right next to each other but little log cabins, a playground, store,laundry, showers, snack bar and pool/ hot tub (with fat women and kids), go cart track, dog park and dog walks. I can see apartments and school busses from my window. Talk about atmosphere.

Apr 20, 2014 - April 19 - Day 16

Breakfast by Sammi...the way to start every day!! We dragged ourselves to the car after saying good-bye to Sammi, Reilly and Nick. Fortunately we will see Sammi next month or else it would have been harder to leave. We are heading back east now. We cross the first mountain range out of Seattle and the landscape changes dramatically. There are still snow covered mountains all around us and lots of alpine trees. There are several waterfalls along the road where the mountain snow is starting to melt...it looks cold! We know we are not in...

Dec 8, 2013 - Bon to Missoula via Dubai and Seattle

From Bonnie's Journal: 12/8 & 9 The flights home - Emirates to Dubai and Dubai to Seattle, Alaska to Missoula - were all fine - just Long. You can't beat Emirates for service though, so if you have to have a 14 hr. nonstop, that's the carrier to be on! Ha Ha! I arrived in Missoula in the evening of - what Tim told me - was the first day the temperature was above 10F ... I brought a heat wave with me. YAY!

Sep 9, 2013 - Missoula, MT

On this day we moved from Ritzville, Washington to Missoula, Montana. We had been smelling exhaust fumes and hearing a funny puffing sound and Chuck thought that perhaps we might have an exhaust leak on the motorhome. When we got to Missoula we took our motorhome to a place where we had them check it out and, sure enough, we did, in fact, have an exhaust leak. We were able to stay in their parking lot that night so we didn't have to search for a campground. They got the necessary parts the next morning and repaired the leak. We discovered...

North To Alaska 2013

Sep 6, 2013 - Montana

Stayed in Missoula last night. Great little college town. Had a decent breakfast at another organic restaurant. I like having a a big breakfast (that I don't cook) and then snack throughout the day. I really haven't a 'typical' lunch or dinner yet. Mostly things like hummus, carrots, cheese, etc. Yummy! So I walked around a little bit after breakfast. Found a store called Rockin Rudy's. (For the B-ton crew: It's Greetings on crack!) The best store EVER! This made up for the next things that happened...got a parking ticket because I'm an...

Aug 16, 2013 - Missoula, Montana

Leaving West Glacier we went west on US 2 back to Kalispell and turned south on US 93. The route south to our next destination, Missoula, Montana, traveled over the bed of what was once the mighty Lake Missoula – now the valley of the Flathead River. Lake Missoula was a large prehistoric lake formed by a glacial ice dam on the Clark Fork River. The ice dam reached some 2000 ft high and the lake covered about 3,000 square miles and held about 500 cubic miles of water, about half of the volume of Lake Michigan. The ice dam ruptured...

Aug 13, 2013 - Travel into Montana - Day 74

August 13, 2013..Travel day. We left the Granite Lake RV Park about 9:00 am and crossed the bridge over the Clearwater River into Lewiston, Idaho. We rode around the town to take a few photos. We headed east on US Hwy. 12, known as the Lewis and Clark Trail, the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway, and the Nez Perce Trail. We are in Indian country here. The road followed the Clearwater River for many miles. The byway is beautiful and we enjoyed the trees and river. We were surprised to see sand bars in many areas along the river. Where does the...
