Malta, Montana (GA605)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
Sadly Mary is struggling with health issues. To see the latest about her situation, click here

I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Turtle Beach RV Resort in Manteca, California. I’m scheduled to depart here April 17th.

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted September 9, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 71 miles from Glasgow to Malta, Montana.

 

We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West.

 

Montana is called the Big Sky Country. I wonder if it’s because sometimes there’s nothing in the way to block your view of the sky…

Along the way we stopped in the small Town of Saco and saw the reconstructed one room school-house of famous newscaster, Chet Huntley. If you have forgotten him, clicking this link will refresh your memory as well as to tell about Saco…population 244… http://www.sacomontana.net/history.htm

Arriving at Malta, we parked in the parking lot of the Phillips County Museum and the adjacent Great Plains Dinosaur Museum. Mary visited the dinosaur museum while I visited the Phillips County Museum. Here are some of the photos that I took in there…

I really enjoyed this museum and highly recommend it if you are in the area. Here’s their official website link… http://www.phillipscountymuseum.org/

The museum graciously allowed us to spend the night in their parking lot, even provided us with an electrical hookup…

Yesterday was an okay weather day. High 70’s, cloudy with a couple of heavier thunderstorms. Today’s forecast is 82, sunny with a morning thunderstorm.

Chet Huntley School – Saco, Montana

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. I’ve been here a number of times before, so I’ve thoroughly seen all of the local tourist attractions. So, now I’m just hanging out enjoying the nice weather.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. The construction of Mary’s rental continues delay plagued. She now is hoping to rejoin me by early September.  😦

A more relaxed mode…

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, I have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months I will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless I do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

Today’s Subject…Chet Huntley School – Saco, Montana…
