Shelby, Montana

Michael must have needed to get away, he came home from the dermatology offices in Billings raring to go—our plan had been to leave early Wednesday morning, instead we were pulling into Royal and Nancy’s in Neihart about 6pm Tuesday evening.  You gotta love these friends with full hookup sites next to their “inconvenience store.”  SmileWe had a great time visiting with them and their cast of friends in the tiny little mountain community of Neihart—once a booming mine town.

About lunch time we said our goodbyes and headed toward Great Falls, catching our granddaughter Laci just as she was coming off shift.  She looks mighty good in that USAF uniform!  We visited with her for a while, talking about her coming separation from the military—oh to be young again—NOT!!

On to Valier, MT—we are parked on the edge of Lake Frances—in a very nice, quiet community campground with electric hookups.  And Lonn—there are trees and you can see mountains in the distance.




This morning I am off to Shelby to teach some quilt shop owners how to use their new APQS longarm.  Michael and Emmi will hold down the fort while I am gone.

Our Millenicom aircard and Cradlepoint router are not behaving this trip out—I need to be in an area where cell coverage is a little better than mediocre to get it up and running!!  Cell service here at this lake is non-existent.  But the little library in Valier has great free wi-fi.  The community campground has wi-fi also but they want to charge you $5 per hour—you must be joking!!! 


  1. Wow - $5 per hour for wifi - that's steep.

    Good luck with your quilting class!

  2. A person would either have to be rich or very desperate to pay that for wifi.

  3. Finally found a little library in a small town in central Alberta with WiFi.
    Wishing you a great holiday along the Oregon coast. I hope the weather you face will be as good as when we rode through there this past May.

  4. Someday I hope to catch up with you while you are home and I can see this quilting process. I am at a lose to understanding it. I am a visual person:) The whole process after sewing the squares is mind boggling to me.

    Gee, I would say that $5 is a little ridiculous!

    Hope all went well with your class!

  5. yes I wonder if they get any takers on the $5.00 an hour wifi. Craziness I would say
