Deer Lodge Mt.

We are spending the night at a nice small rv park in Deer Lodge Mt. We have been listening all day to the fox news channel on our Sirius Radio. The Texas hurricane and the L.A. train wreck seem to be the topic of conversation. I had to smile when I heard about all the gas price increases. When we filled up this morning on the North Dakota Montana border we paid 3.92 for diesel. That's the cheapest for us in several months. Today started out windy and rainy but by noon it was a nice day out. We started seeing the mountains this afternoon and crossed the continental divide at about 6800 feet.

We plan to have a short driving day on Sunday. We are going to stop in northern Idaho, in the Coeur D'Alene area. Monday we should be in the Seattle area. Thursday we will drive to Portland and start in on last minute wedding details.

That's all for now.

On the Road again

We hooked up the Jeep and headed west this morning. We are going to Portland via a few detours. Chicago was it's normal pain and tolls are almost 20.00 just to get to the n.w. side. We had rain this afternoon but it's nice now. As I write this we are parked at the Super Walmart in Eau Claire Wi. On to North Dakota tomorrow.
