Jul 7, 2018 - Saint Regis, Montana

All Who Wander Are Not Lost. Yesterday was crazy. We drove to Idaho to go to the Buck Knife Factory. Then, we drove back to Montana. Sometimes the planets get out of alignment but it doesn’t take long for us to realign them. I regroup. Step 1: Get out the map. We are in perfect position to head back to Libby on a great route. From Libby, we can move on to Glacier National Park. Wait a minute. We need places to stay. Step 2: Get out the phone. Bottom Line: We are booked for the next 8 nights, which will include four nights at Glacier...

Jul 6, 2018 - Saint Regis, Montana

Part 2 – Life Changes In the parking lot, I look at our RV Park options. I call the closest. “Sorry, we are full.” I call the biggest. “Sorry, we are full.” I go to my backup. I call the Spokane KOA. “Full” Uh, oh. I start calling parks further and further away. We do not feel like driving but what can we do? John suggests that we head east on Interstate 90. I start calling. I didn’t really like Route 93. Through good timing, we get a site in St. Regis, Montana. It is just under 2 hours away. Like I said. What can we do? We see a chain up...

Jul 2, 2016 - Nugget RV Park (6/27 - 6/30/16)

Nugget RV Park is located in St. Regis, MT. St. Regis is the 'trout fishing capital of the west' as proclaimed on the banners attached to the light poles. It is located on the beautiful Clark Fork River which is very famous for its trout fishing. There isn't a lot to St. Regis, but it does have a really nice little 50's styled burger joint. It also has a store that has everything, including a trout aquarium. We were in site #26. This is a Good Sam park and has very high ratings. We give it a 10! It has a great laundry, showers and...

Aug 23, 2015 - Made it!

We made it and are safe and well in smoky Montana. We left early this morning and headed up and over Sherman Pass on Rt. 20, the only road that was open to us. We did not hook up the Jeep and I drove that behind Bob to make it easier for him to negotiate the figure eight turns on this road. (To the Shermans in Pa-of course this road bears your name). In any event, as we drove up the highway, the smoke got thicker and thicker. We passed a staging point on the highway where many vehicles were parked waiting to lay siege to the fire that was...

Jul 11, 2013 - A Nugget

Jim and Shirley Shotwell own the Nugget campground in St. Regis, Montana. Sister and brother-in-law Shelley and Ronnie suggested we stay there if possible. The Shotwells, whom they have met, are the brother and sister-in-law to Shelley and Ronnie's best friends, and friends of ours, Rob and Cecelia Shotwell. It was near the end of the season for the Shotwells. They were very busy and couldn't socialize much, but we did get to enjoy their company somewhat. From there we took several day trips out and about. We went to Thompson Falls where...

May 28, 2013 - West Yellowstone to St.Regis

Left West Yellowstone this morning heading West. This country is just amazing...driving along enjoying the cows and horses in the lowlands, then all of a sudden we're climbing 5 and 6 percent grades up into mountains you couldn't even see just a little while earlier. It really is beautiful. So much open land.

Sep 8, 2012 - Trail of the Hiawatha

Sept. 8, 2012 Got pretty cold last night, about 45 degrees. Nice sleeping bags kept us warm.  The 4 wheeler guys waved as we pulled the trailer up the hill out of the campground.  It looked less scarey than coming down had. Then we rode the Trail of the Hiawatha rail trail.  Awesome views, trestles, and tunnels, quite an experience!  As it was a beautiful Saturday, LOTS of people were out on the trail.  John guessed 500, all ages.  Not too crowded to enjoy though.  95% took the shuttle buses, some so that they only rode the mile+ tunnel....

Jun 2, 2012 - Heading back east . . . . .

Steve got word from Dan that the new well will be ready for him around the middle of the month, so time to start heading back. We will spend the nest few days boondocking along the Blackfoot River, then spend some more time in Helena before we make the way back to Wahpeton to get his work gear and the suburban. The kids and I will find work somewhere along the way to bide time till Steve is done with the wells.

Aug 4, 2011 - Saint Regis, Montana, USA

Today was an easy 143 mile drive to Saint Regis, Montana. The campground had some carvings of animals where trees had been cut down. They told us not to put food in the garbage cans at night because they do get bears here. Adlai, Irene, Larry, Sandra, Terry, and Doug and Clarence and I cooked steaks out tonight. We all met on the Fall Foliage tour and decided to come west together so had a little celebration. Tonight the group had a bonfire and had a discussion around the fire of RV questions and tips.
