The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Lake Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California. I’m scheduled to depart here May 9th.

 

 

 

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 17, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 89 miles from Kalispell to Libby, Montana.

 

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

 

The traffic continued light along Highway 2…

Yesterday was the first decent weather day I’ve experienced in a long time. Even though the temperature got to 81…the humidity was only 40%. Combined with a sunny/cloudy day and a pleasant all-day breeze, it was most enjoyable. During my yesterday’s morning walk is was 68 degrees…today 20 degrees cooler at 48.

 

Forecast high temperature for today is 69 degrees. Yes! Mucho Bettero!

 

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

 

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

Both of the museums in Kalispell are closed on Sunday, so because of the short drive time yesterday, we rounded out our day by grocery shopping, cleaning the refrigerator, defrosting the freezer, computer work and reading.

 

 

Yesterday was a terrible weather day. 87 degrees…humidity still far to high. Today’s forecast 80 degrees with a couple of thunderstorms. YUCKITTY!

 

 

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

The motorhome is parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. I’m planning to depart here Monday.

The motorhome is parked in the Apgar Campground of Glacier National Park near West Glacier, Montana.

 

Yesterday Mary and I drove the Bronco along 42 miles of the Going To The Sun Road in Glacier National Park including going over Logan Pass which is at 6,649 feet elevation. It was a cloudy with some sun kind of day. It was also quite hazy which did not help our photographic efforts.

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 35 miles from Cut Bank to Browning, Montana.

 

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

 

Along the way we saw our first glimpse of the Rocky Mountains about 50 miles distant. Look closely at the far horizon…

Browning holds a very interesting record… From January 23, 1916 to January 24, 1916, the temperature fell 100°F (56°C) from 44°F (7°C) to -56°F (-49°C). This is the United States and also the world record for the greatest temperature change in 24 hours.

Browning is also the largest community on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. You can read all about Browning by clicking this link… http://browningmontana.com/

First stop was at the Museum of the Plains Indian. It was very interesting, but unfortunately it has a no photography policy. You can read about the museum by clicking their official website link… http://browningmontana.com/museum.html

But, in an adjourning two rooms were two displaying artists. First was…

On duty in the gift shop was another artist happy to show me his work. John Isaiah Pepion has a website at http://pepionledgerart.com/

He does ink and oil-based colored pencil drawings on old ledger paper as a background…

Despite the no photography policies of the two places, I still managed to get some nice photos of some great work and got to meet the artists as well!

We parked overnight in the lot behind the museum. This photo will also serve as a quasi for my usual dinette window photo as the view would be the same more or less…

Yesterday was a decent day. 79 degrees…humidity still far to high. Today’s forecast 87 degrees. YUCKITTY!

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

We went to Bryan’s Automotive Service where, with the help of proper testing equipment, he corrected the previous guys two wiring errors on the umbilical cord from the motorhome to the Bronco. I checked twice to make sure everything is working properly this time…including the charging of the Bronco battery. One hour and $85 later we were on the road again…

DSC06226

In this next photo you see the Great Northern Railroad Train on the right. Highway 2 parallels the tracks for many miles…sometimes as little as 50 feet from the roadway. The tracks came first in 1891 and Highway 2 in the mid-1930’s…

Arriving in Cut Bank 23 miles later, we did a little scouting out of potential overnight parking places then went to the Glacier County Museum where I took the following photos…

About three weeks ago I identified I was having a problem with a dead battery in my towed Ford Bronco II. About two weeks ago I reported the problem had been fixed. Yesterday morning I discovered the Bronco battery was once again dead. The problem remains. While Mary did laundry yesterday I spent a couple of hours in the hot, broiling sun attempting to fix the problem. Almost, but not quite. Once again, beyond my expertise. I have a 10:00 AM appointment with a shop about 45 miles further down the road. Chester is a very small town with no auto electric repair services. While aggravating, on the road problems are usually resolved with some time and money. Fortunately, We have both.

 

 

 

 

 

We parked at the Chester City Park overnight…

Yesterday was another lousy weather day. 83 degrees, sunny with high humidity. Next two-day forecast is 84 then 86 degrees! Yuckkitty!

 

 

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

 

 

Enjoying parking in city parks 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!
