Sep 12, 2017 - The Rebuilding Begins

9-11 Today was the first concrete pour for the footings of the "Garagemahal II"... 9-12 With the hurricanes we were advised by friends to 'book' our order for materials that we will need within the next 2 months. Since we are now running at least two months behind schedule and each day seems to stretch the completion day further into the future, we took their advise and ordered/paid for most of the the sheet goods, insulation, and lumber ahead.... 9-15 Big change in weather...rain and cool to colder.... We did not cancel the basement slab...

Aug 28, 2017 - Missoula MT

Well, as planned, we were on the road just before 8:00 and after a 30 minute refueling and lunching stop, we pulled into the very smoky Missoula KOA at a bit before 2:00. The drive from Billings, through Butte and Bozeman was fine except for just enough rain to filthy-up the sides of the house. The west side of Montana is getting buried in smoke from wildfires...in Billings the sky was yellow and here in Missoula you can hardly see the mountains that surround the town and since we are near the airport there are frequent air tankers and...

Aug 22, 2017 - Travel from Yellowstone to Missoula, MT

August 22 – Travel from Yellowstone to Missoula, MT Our trip this morning had one 11-mile event as we climbed I-90 up the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains to the continental divide at Elk Park Pass. The elevation at the start of the climb was 4,600’ and at the end, 6,370’. The slope varies from 6% to 7% as I-90 winds its way up the mountain. See elevation profile with photos. There was no third truck lane (and no pull-off) so we used the right travel lane along with the semis with our 4-way flashers on when we slowed to 40 MPH in third...

Aug 21, 2017 - Day 2

On to Miles City Montana. It was a another long day driving. Miles and miles of freeway being repaired, bouncy ride. We found an RV park near I94 that was reasonably priced. It was Big Sky Camp & RV Park. We went into town for fuel again. Dinner at Iron Skillet Restaurant, good food.

Aug 15, 2017 - The Beginning or The End

Dear friends, I don't know how to communicate with all of you on the same level or in a way in which I can emphasize the urgency I feel without alienating some of you but I will attempt this nonetheless. During the past 15+ years Bon and I have travelled alot as you know. I have been searching to discover what makes life and Earth the wonder that it is to me. If you have a spiritual or religious or scientific background/point of view your perspective may color much of what I am saying with these ideas in mind. I have found that the energy,...

Jul 25, 2017 - Jim and Mary's Campground, Missoula, MT

The easy 235 mile drive from our camping spot on the St. Joe River to our overnight stay in Jim and Mary's campground in Missoula was a breeze. In this part of Montana there is a lot of forest fire smoke in the air, from two fires within 50 miles of us. We're here just for one night. Be sure to check our Itinerary on the facing page for info about where we'll be tomorrow night..... ;)

Jun 20, 2017 - Missoula to Kalispell

Tues., June 20th – Today was a long day of travel up to Jim and Mary’s RV park in Missoula. Steve and I scouted out the mall, ate at Red Robin and did our laundry in town. Missoula is a busy city! Wed., June 21st – Today we traveled from Missoula to Kalispell with a stop at the old Catholic/Indian church, St. Ignatius Mission. This little church is an amazing example of God’s gift of artistic talent. The cook and handyman painted 58 beautiful detailed murals on the ceiling and walls of the sanctuary. From there we continued on to our next...

Jun 14, 2017 - Brief emergence from wilderness

After a few nights at Wilderness Gateway and Powell campgrounds, we briefly emerged into Missoula, Montana. The WalMart looked a little "iffy" ( more so than usual) so we ended up sleeping in Cabela's parking lot. No one bothered us. The worst part was trying to go to bed at 10:00 at night with sun still shining brightly on the hills.
