Rolling along....

Monday, July 26, 2010

We spent a couple of extra days in White Sulphur Springs at our western home park, Conestoga Campground. Chores needed to be done...laundry, house cleaning, mending, washing the RV and truck to name a few.

We also took in a pizza and a movie at Stageline Pizza downtown. We saw Toy Story 3 and I was pleasantly surprised...it was much better than I anticipated. Written much towards adults, it was well written, very funny and delightfully poignant.

We finally hit the road yesterday, taking a leisurely drive through some gorgeous country. I REALLY could live in Montana....well, at least for June-September. LOL! We passed down the western side of Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. We parked for the night at a Super Wally World in Idaho Falls, ID. It was in the low 90's and the sun was HOT on the parking lot so we broke down and ran the air conditioner.

Today we head to Moran, WY area to try some boondocking. Not sure how long we will be there or if we will have phone or Internet access so figured I should do a quick update here. We plan to enjoy Jackson Hole, Grand Teton National Park and maybe some of Yellowstone.

Then we head to Blackhawk, SD where we have an appointment next Monday to get our main air conditioner fixed. We only have the one in our bedroom right now and I just KNOW it's going to be hot at Sturgis (where we plan to be for two weeks).

After Sturgis we head to Elkhart, IN for the Gypsy Journal Rally. Looking forward to connecting with friends there, especially Nick & Terry and hopefully Greg & Jan. Then it's on to MD for Sept/Oct where we will catch up on doctor appointments, see family and take two of our grandkids to Disney for 5 days.

Anyway, not sure when we will be blogging again...but you KNOW we'll be having fun!

Till next time - keep on rollin',

Glad you like Montana. I was born and raised here and love it in the summer. But winters leave a lot to be desired.

Hope to meet you at the Gypsy Journal Rally.

I am sooo with you on the "living in Montana"...Winter..NO! But it is some of the most beautiful country I have ever seen..truly Big Sky Country. We tried to get hotel rooms in Sturgis one summer...NOT HAPPENING..It happened to be the big Rally...We had no clue, that just happened to be when Den's vacation time was before he retired.....Have fun!

When you're in the Moran area, make sure you take a trip up the Gros Ventre River - see the huge landslide in the lower canyon, and the lovely colored hills further up.

I agree with you about Montana - though we also feel that way about Colorado!

Only western State I have not been to so far is Oregon, but I sure have enjoyed all the rest of them big time. Easy to see why they call Montana, big sky country. 'Travels with Emma' on our blog role is camped in or near Yellowstone right now. Great area & loved the Grand Tetons when I saw them years ago. Sounds like you have a busy itinerary & a lot of traveling coming up. A trip to the local grocery store is about as exciting as it gets for me this summer:((

We are loving Workamping in Montana this summer. . .West Yellowstone is awesome. . .with easy access to the park. We can run out there to our heart's desire. So glad we decided to do this.

Have a great trip.
