Well, after packing everything but "the kitchen sink", we locked up and headed out on our first day on the road on Friday, August 31, 2007, arriving in Post Falls, Idaho at about 7:00 p.m. We got hooked up and the slides out just in time for a rip-roaring thunder and lightening storm to hit! Lit up the sky! When the winds began to really blow, we decided to bring the slides back in, and uh-O, the front one wouldn't budge! Dick decided he was to tired from driving nine hours to stress over it, and we would just pray for a miracle in the morning when hopefully the sun would be out again (holiday weekend - could be BAD!).Unfortunately, then the electricity went out, and we went battery-operated for the rest of the night. No WiFi. I think the lights came back on about one in the morning. Better to have stuff like this happen at the beginning of the trip, right??
Somehow the slide went in just as easy as punch this morning. We had coffee and were on the road by 8:04. And speaking of roads, which ones are worse, Idaho or Montana, I really would have a hard time deciding. But the scenery is awesome, and the thrill of being in the "Last Best Place" again is worth every bump and pot hole. We arrived in Livingston, Montana at about 5:00 p.m. Staying at Olsen's RV Park and Campground. Nice, quiet, scenic, a little tight getting the Holiday Rambler around the turns, but we made it just fine. Took a walk into town to the historical district, which was very nice. All in all, Livingston is really lovely.
Up again early in then morning heading to Sundance, Wyoming, near Devil's Tower National Monument, which Dick tells me was the first National Monument in the country. Will be spending a whole day in the area, so hope to get some good pictures to share. Please write us, we would love to hear from you.
