I am so enjoying your trip. It is a memory jogger of happy travels. In 1974 Roy and I went to Minot ND to visit our son at the SAC base. We visited the head waters of the Missouri River at Fort Buford, Teddy Roosevelt Badlands and any old tractor sitting by the highway. We camped in our new 92 Datsun pickup with a topper. Gas was $,29 a gallon.(memories) In 1995, we made a trek to Carlile WY for a guided history to the hole in the wall and range wars area. We were in a 92 Chevrolet with a slide in like Fred. we rambled thru Yellowstone, Vernal UT. dinosaur dig site, Pikes Peak and Royal Gorge on our way home. I don't remember fuel prices, but in some areas we had to search for diesel. In 2000 we went on a grand 5 week trip with our 3 great grandkids.
We had a 38 ft 5th wheel pulled by our 92 3/4 ton Chevrolet. We saw Wizard of Oz museum in KS, revisited Yellowstone and dinosaur digs and museum then on to Missoula to visit my daughter and grandkids. Then it was on to Glacier NP. We spent a week there. we drove up to the Canadian border on a road following the Flathead river and stepped into Canada at an old crossing. We stopped at a parking area by the Flathead .The kids walked across the river on rocks. The grand daughters both fell on the slippery rocks coming back. They still remember the cold water. We discovered huckleberry milkshakes at Hungry Horse. They were so good that we made it a every night treat after supper. Yum Yum on our way home we stopped at Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse memorial. a mammoth dig site at Hot Springs SD. and Ft Leavenworth KS. That was our last big trip north. Roy's health began to fail and in 2005 we exchanged our 5th wheel for a 1983 300 Airstream motorhome. I could drive and park the motorhome. I lost Roy in 2007 after a long illness. He and I made short trips in the motorhome even though he wasn't able to drive. I still have the motorhome and make short trips and rallies. I will be 79 in Sept. Sorry about being long winded.

Thank you for the pictures as they have brought back wonderful memories.

Be sure and try those huckleberry milkshakes and some huckleberry jam and think of me.

Are there still coal veins burning in T.R park. There were several smoking veins in 95 that had caught afire due to lightening.

Have a wonderful trip and keep uploading pics when you can.

Kay

We are so glad that you are enjoying our trip, Kay, and that it brings back pleasant memories for you.

At your suggestion, SuEllyn and I tried the Huckleberry Shakes that we got in the little town of Hungry Horse on the way into the Park this afternoon. They were really good. Below is a picture of SuEllyn's Huckleberry Shake.

We broke camp this morning in Polson, swung by the Post Office there to get some Moose Tags on their way, and towed Lucy up to Kalispell, Montana. Kalispell is located at the north end of Flathead Lake. We got Lucy settled in at the Glacier Pines RV Park, and headed out to check out some of Glacier National Park.

We got into the park around three o'clock. When we got on the Going-to-the-Sun Road, we decided to park Fred and Ethel at Avalanche Creek and take the Park shuttle bus up to the top at Logan Pass. We got to Logan Pass at about 4:30. We looked around and got a few pictures. At 5:30, we decided to take the bus back down. There was such a mass of visitors waiting for the shuttle bus, that we didn't get back down the mountain to the truck until after 8:00 PM. Even though Fred is big and the road is narrow, if we ever do the Road again, we'll drive it.

We got back to Lucy around nine. We were glad to be home tonight.

Lucy is still camped in Kalispell, Montana. We went back into Glacier National Park today. We didn't get to see a whole lot as a hard and steady rain prevailed for most of the day. We left the Park early and looked around Whitefish, Montana.

We got back to Lucy by seven, and started preparations for departure tomorrow. Tomorrow we head to Idaho.

We packed Lucy up in Kalispell this morning and set out on US 2 in a westerly direction. We took some back dirt roads along Thompson Lake looking for Moose. We didn't have any luck, but the scenery was great. We continued on to Libby, Montana, where we mailed our shipments of Moose Tags. We then turned south on Montana Highway 56 to Montana 200. From there we headed west and crossed into Idaho which put us into the Pacific Time Zone.

We arrived in the Coeur d'Alene, Idaho around 6:00 PM. and got Lucy a campsite at the Alpine Campground. We had a nice visit with Airstream friends, Dan and Irene Cyr (Smartstream), at the campground.

We plan to spend a couple of days here in the Coeur d'Alene exploring the area.

Lucy is camped at Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. We spent the day touring Coeur d'Alene and Sandpoint, a town north of Coeur d'Alene. Two lakes dominate the geography of the area, Lake Coeur d'Alene and Pend Oreille Lake. Both of these lakes are large and very scenic.

We didn't get back to Lucy until about 8:00 PM. Tomorrow we plan to head west into Washington.

Coeur d'Alene, a beautiful town.....and don'tcha just love the name?

So musical. Seems like it should be in a Rodgers and Hammerstein production.

Lucy finally made to the opposite corner! That's right folks, we are now in Washington State, as far as you can get from Florida in the lower forty-eight. We broke camp in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho this morning and made it into Washington in short order.

We got off the Interstate and toured downtown Spokane. Spokane is a neat old city. We took some pictures and got back on the road.

Eastern Washington's scenery is about as exciting as I-10 west of Tallahassee. When we stopped for lunch at a rest area on I-90, we had to take a short nap in Lucy before continuing on.

We decided to make it a short day and stopped in Moses Lake, Washington and found a nice campground at the Suncrest RV Resort. We got Lucy set up and made a Wal-Mart run. We had a nice dinner in Lucy. We have now settled in for the night.

We are still at Moses Lake, Washington. We took a tour of the area today. We went up to Soap Lake, about 25 miles north of Moses Lake. Soap Lake was quite interesting. Soap Lake is a little town that has a lake that is known for the healing qualities of its mineral waters. People come to this lake and cake themselves in mud from the lake's bottom, let it dry sand then rinse off. There were literally dozens of people doing just that while we were there. We decide to pass on the mud.

We continued to Ephrata, Washington to look around there. WE went back to Lucy at the campground in Moses Lake late this afternoon. We had supper at Lucy and started to prepare for departure tomorrow.

It looks like we are going to see more of central Washington than we had thought. This morning while we were in the process of getting Lucy hooked up to Fred and Ethel, we noticed a major problem. Lucy's hitch had broken. The upper and lower sections had separated. This has, in effect, shut us down until we can get a new one. This could take as long as a week. Accordingly, we are going to be taking in the sights within a hundred miles of Moses Lake, Washington.

Today, we went south and west of Moses Lake. We visited Potholes Reservoir, the Columbia River at Vantage, Washington, and apple orchids and potato farms. We never knew that apples grew on vines, and that potatoes were bagged in the as they were picked. Then we even visited George, Washington. Yes, there is such a town!

We came back to Lucy for supper. I guess if one has to be stranded somewhere, Moses Lake, Washington is as good a place as any.

Hi, too bad about the hitch breaking; Is Hensley going to take care of it or do you have to buy a new hitch/parts? Good thing it didn't let go while towing. Great pictures and I didn't know about those apples or potatoes either.

Hi Bob,
