Missoula, Montana Love, love, love Montana. The blue sky goes on forever. So far this state comes in right behind Oregon for beauty.

Going West 2014

Jul 14, 2014 - Mon, 7/14

Today we learned that, because of the heat wave, there are no small ac's in this town. We will wait till we return to replace the unit. We also got the car washed. It's wonderful to have the dust off the outside and the inside partially vacuumed and wiped. It will probably run better now ... I got my hair cut but not colored as I have mislaid the instructions for the hairdresser. We did a car hiking loop around the University district and downtown before heading back to camp. I want to get a few reservations made. We have booked ourselves...

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...

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...
