Glasgow, Montana

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 97 miles from Culbertson to Glasgow, Montana.

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

With less than a mile behind us, we ran into a major road rebuilding of Highway 2 that ran about 10 miles…

This is a frequent sight along Highway 2 which for many miles runs along side of the railroad tracks of the Great Northern Railway that runs from Seattle, Washington to Chicago, Illinois. The tracks are just to the left of this grain storage facility…

Yesterday was a lousy weather day. 81 degrees with high humidity, high winds and a couple of thunderstorms. Today’s forecast is for 96 degrees with a real feel of 100 degrees! YUCKKITTY! Tomorrow is forecast 94 degrees.

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

Enjoying friendly VFW Posts is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

Culbertson, Montana

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 114 miles from Stanley, North Dakota to Culbertson, Montana.

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

The day started with a light rain…

We decided we wanted to see the Buffalo Trail Museum which meant we had to get off of Highway 2 and get on this rough dirt road for about ten miles…

DSC05901

This is the main drag of Epping, North Dakota…population 100. Several buildings make up the museum…

Heather and Shelly were closing up the museum for the season when we arrived. They graciously opened all of the buildings and showed us around…

Here are some of the photos that I took. You don’t see a bank offering these terms anymore…

I wonder if Bonnie and Clyde ever used this pickup truck…

DSC05916

I thought that this might had been the first-ever travel trailer. Shelly explained it was actually the early school bus. Pulled by a horse and put on a sled during the winter…

This cabin was lived in for many years and moved to this site…

We continued on passing through Williston, North Dakota which because of the oil boom had many big and noisy trucks. We had been warned about the heavy crime of Williston so we continued on for another 20 miles and crossed into Montana and the Mountain Time Zone leaving the noise and hubbub of the oil boom behind. It was time to get back to the very light traffic mode of Highway 2…

We continued on for another 23 miles and arrived in the small Town of Culbertson, population 734, where we found parking at a Lions Town Park  Here I parked at the back of the parking area trying to get a little shade which increased as the afternoon went on…
