Jul 31, 2015 - Montana to North Dakota

Thurs/Friday (49-50) Travel days. After a tour around Livingston Montana we headed for Billings. A nice, picturesque trip coming down from the higher elevations onto the plateaus. Lunch in Billings and a brief look around then back on the road. Spent the night in Miles City, MT. - Friday we departed early with a brief stop at Wally World for dog food. All this danged dog does is eat it and poop it right out. Costly. Not a lot of scenery today but what there was was quite nice. WE traveled through the southern end of the Bakkan and there is...

Jul 28, 2015 - Blowing in the Wind

It was warm in the coach overnight but we all toughed it out and made the best of it. We got an early start and left Minnesota behind for North Dakota. North Dakota is the only state we haven't been to; so, we can now cross it off the bucket list. We stopped at the Visitor Center in Fargo for a quick break. The wind was really picking up and soon became a 20-mile an hour head wind. That's a killer for fuel mileage for us. We had hoped to make Bismarck but put down in Jamestown, about 100 miles shy of our goal. As we sit here, there's no...

Summer 2015 & Beyond

Jul 4, 2014 - Home of the White Buffalo

Traveling during the holidays can be a challenge. We try to plan ahead so that we can find a pleasant place to park. In the past, I have forgotten Memorial day and we ended up staying the weekend in a place I would sooner forget. I was happy to get a spot at Pioneer Village RV park. It had seen its day and the sites were really close together. There were a lot of semi-permanent trailers. Its claim to fame, was its location. It was just a block away from the largest Buffalo in the World. "The World's Largest Buffalo was built in 1959 at the...

Jun 24, 2014 - Day 7 I-94 backup

Well, who in the world thought the odometer would turn 10,000 miles in the middle of Minnesota on I-94? It caused quite the backup when we had to stop to take a picture of it. Seems everyone was looking around to see what we were looking at, as I jumped out with my camera and started shooting pictures of the field to throw them off, LOL!! Remember my post yesterday about the shadow in the tree that I thought was a bear? The tree with the eagle sitting on it? In this mornings light, I could clearly see that it was a HUGE eagles nest. Mystery...

Day 19 - Jamestown, ND 8/31/2013 Another boring travel day. The nice part was, it cooled off today and it was overcast most of the day, made for a pleasant trip. We spied this cow on the side of the road, touted as "The Worlds Largest Holstein Cow". It was on a hillside and an advertisement for a bank, so we didn't try to stop and see it, just snapped the picture. We arrived in Jamestown without any problems. We needed to do some grocery shopping, so we went into town after we parked the trailer. We saw that the Worlds Largest Buffalo was...

Wednesday Just a brief update on today’s progress. We headed out from Itasca National Park via the back roads down to Detroit Lakes and Highway 10 headed west.

Aug 8, 2013 - Jamestown, ND

Today is a rest day for us. We are camping in a county park with hugh slots in an elm and spruce grove. There is a plant used as a barrier around the park that has a red berry on it, so far unable to determine what it is. Will have to ask locals. We had late breakfast/lunch, Danny cooked bacon on picnic table, heated up his homemade biscuits which he topped with Bradley's cane syrup and I with Marion berry jelly we purchased in Or. last yr.. Bonnie is to have her nails trimed professionally, we need suggestions on how to trim with her new...

Aug 7, 2013 - Trout Lake Camp we must move on

Dear Lord, thank you for this experience. This area is beautiful; enough of a hill rise that you are able to see the lakes in a distance. The camp has two campuses one for primary school and one for secondary. There is a beach area with pontoon boats, water craft to pull large tubes, kayak, paddle boards, and a swim area. In addition they have paintball, archery, crafts, horses, petting zoo, rife range, and most importantly Chapel with meaningful fun skits and devotion time. I would love to have my grandchildren attend this camp. We...

Aug 4, 2013 - Trout Lake Camp: new skills

Thank you God for the opportunity to learn new skills. (and at our age, praises for the continued ability to learn!) We made stakes to use for a concrete pour which Danny participated in. I learned how to use an electric metal griner and an electric drillpress. We learned how to apply boric acid to new logs for the future nurses station and rest room facility. The camp acquire an additional 100 acres last year and moved the director out of his house and into the one on the new acreage. The old house was 3 stores with baths on each floor, it...
