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 13, 2013…

 

 

 

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.

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 68 miles from Malta to Chinook, Montana.

 

 

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

 

 

Mid-morning it looked like we were going to get involved with a thunderstorm, but it never did develop…

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…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Soledad Canyon RV Resort in Acton, California. I’m planning to depart here tomorrow..

 

 

 

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 7, 2013…

 

 

 

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…

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…

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…

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…

DSC05956

 

 

 

 

 

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…

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

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

Towner, North Dakota (GA601)

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 RV resort in Palm Desert, California. I’m scheduled to depart here March 26th.

 

 

 

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 5, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 77 miles from Devils Lake to Towner, North Dakota.

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

 

Highway 2 traffic continues to be light. No vehicles visible in front of us…

And no vehicles visible behind us. Speed limit is 70. Set the cruise control on 55 and watch the miles roll by. Sweet…

Along the way we stopped in Rugby, North Dakota which claims to be the geographical center of North America. You can read about this place by clicking this link… http://www.rugbynorthdakota.com/AttractionDetail.aspx?AttractionID=6

Just down the street we met up with a John Deere tractor bigger than the motorhome…

A short distance away, we spent an interesting two hours visiting the Prairie Village Museum. It does a great job showing what early prairie life was like in 30 buildings.

 

 

 

 

 

The first photo is of one of their postcards showing an aerial view of the buildings…

Here are some of the photos I took there…

This may be the very best prairie museum I have ever visited. Here’s their official website link… http://www.prairievillagemuseum.com/#!

From there we continued on to the Town of Towner, North Dakota where the citizens provide a free city park campground with four electrical hook-up sites…

Here’s the usual dinette window photo…

And here’s Mary enjoying her afternoon…

We enjoyed a very pleasant and restful stay here. Thank you, Towner!

 

 

Yesterday was a lousy weather day. 80 degrees with high humidity. Today’s forecast is for 90 degrees. Tomorrow is forecast 92 degrees. YUKKITTY!

 

 

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

 

 

Enjoying free, pretty city park campgrounds is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
