Again, it’s the wee hours of the morning and waiting for the world to wake up so the day can begin.
It was sad to see Whitefish State Park fade away in the rear view mirror and those we’ve come to know and connect with in our daily lives.
BUT …. With eyes ahead and minds open to the next chapter, the need to cling to what’s become familiar subsides replaced by the landscapes yet unseen and experiences yet to be lived.
Our first 2 stops have been in small out-of-the-way Montana towns. The first night in a Wal-Mart parking lot and I must say our curb-side spot next to lush green grass and ample doggie-running room was pretty dang spiffy! Last night was spent in a fairground campground surrounded by centuries-old cottonwood trees and with a lazy muddy bottom river meandering between the campground and the fairgrounds. Free (donation requested) and only 1 other RV pulled in before the night was done.
Today we leave Montana bound for Belle Fourche, South Dakota (North of Rapid City) for a few days of R & R at a full-service campground. Hoping the weather holds out for some Black Hills MC riding!
Not sure how long we’ll hang out in SD, depends on weather and ambition.
Scheduled arrival for our Tucson camp host gig isn’t ‘til Oct. 14th so we have some travel wiggle room.
