Sitting here on Labor Day in an almost empty campground. I was worried last week about getting stuck without a camp site over the holiday weekend, I guess it was no big deal.

59 degrees here and breezy. Sunny, should warm up a bit. Yesterday was overcast, which was unusual. Saturday night the wind was blowing at sunset and clouds moved in that ended up making for a great show of color. What do you expect with a BIG SKY? I took the camera out to the ...

The ride to Cut Bank was uneventful, which is a good thing. A direct route was not available. I drove along Flathead Lake for the first time, on the west side. My favorite road RT 93. Into Columbia Falls, then east on RT 2. Past Glacier Park (did that many years ago, will have to wait for a second visit for now). There were huge mountains all around, yet the road was not so much up and down. Suddenly we popped out of the trees in the high desert of Montana.<...

The trains stopped rolling last night for some reason (whistle is blowing right now for another one coming thru) with no early morning horns until 10 AM. Now THAT is more like it. Too bad it is probably temporary. I have heard that many nicer RV parks have a train nearby, probably because it makes the land cost less. I know there is another train nearby in Cut Bank, but I am assured it is a whistle off in the distance versus one shoved down your throat.

Monday morning I was getting ready to leave Metaline. The day before I noted there was a camper parked behind me. This had not been the case since I arrived. So now I had to move the RV to get the tow dolly accessible. Not a big deal, and it was done.

Then Tori came up and I wanted to thank her for the nice experience. A great camping experience. Easy, no pressure attitude. No page of rules. They have been there for many years, and I met several ...

Still having trouble uploading photos. There is a new page that starts OK and then it just stops. I found a way around it, but I have to load a photo, get out, get back in, and load another. So not a lot of photos lately.

Sunday was the first day in a few that looked sunny and warm. Bruce my buddy had been concerned about cold water temperatures. I may die 30 different ways, but I do not see drowning as one. Still, Bruce knocked on my screen door an...

On June 4th I left Kentucky driving my RV known as Leggs. The trip is mostly unplanned, it will be interesting to see where I end up. Let's GO!
