Arrived at Bozeman...

we left the national forest campground in West Yellowstone at 6 AM yesterday, in hopes of getting to Bozeman prior to a lot of people...and early enough...

After a tire blowout on our tow vehicule, we had to get two new front tires.... we made it at around 3 PM....LOL....

So here we are, in the "Purple area" wondering what 's next... Yesterday we were not told that registration closed at 4 PM... so we missed that... (guess we'll go in early today!)

If anyone wants to stop by and say hello... you can't miss us: Airstream 345 LE motorhome, with a Yellow Beetle in tow.

Will keep you guys updated as to what we think etc...

Liz and Chris.

I've only been there once (beautiful, isn't it?!!), but if you've ever read "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance", drive through the campus there and see if you can picture yourself in Pirsig's book.

I hope that you have a great time in Bozeman. I have been following your blog and I admire your desire to see the USA. I am so glad that you can finance your travels. I have a 83 turbodeisel 300 classic motor home and I would love to make a trip simular to the one you are taking.

Don't let a few wrinkles and a head of white hair turn you off to some great folks. I raised 3 kids (50's) 2 grandkids (30's) and am helping with 4 teenagers, a 4 yr and 18 mo. great grand kids. I feel like I can visit with folks of all ages. I don't need to talk about the good old days nor my aches. I feel great and embrace life. I think that you will find that most of the people at the rally are a fun group.

You have something in common with everyone there. An Airstream.

Wish I was there too. Have fun!!

Kay

Beautiful photos! We love the areas you are traveling through; your pictures make us almost feel we are back there. The Tetons look very snowy, snowier than we've seen in our summer travels. I guess this winter's snows are still hanging on in the high places. Enjoy the rally and thanks for your blog postings. ~G

Great to meet you guys at the rally. The event was a great location! We were lucky to be on the grass three rigs away from you. Hope you look us up when you come through Portland.

Mike & Lisa

Great Meeting All of You Too

We're out of there. We decided to leave on July fourth. Our Unit and Region had nothing going on, and it was supposed to get hot. We didn't want to sit on the dusty parking lot and wait in the heat for a closing ceremony we don't have any part in. We heard it went to 102 degrees F on the fourth.

We're in Great Falls, MT now and continuing our trip.

See everyone at the next rally.

Randy

We couldn't have been to far from you at Bozeman. We were in purple 2 and when we left the rally we spent 7 nights inside Yellowstone NP. Kind of back tracked your route.

Liz and Chris, don't let Leo tease you, I did some pretty good colateral damage at Michael's myself that night...kind of spurned my desire to be designated driver the next evening to town. Nice meeting you. Don't ask about the Sedgeway incident.

And Randy it was great to see you and Pat again. Small world, isn't it?

Off to read the blogs...

Gaylejoe are you Kate's friends Gail and Joe, the champion buffalo chip tosser and my new bike riding partners?
