Home Sweet Home

Saturday we decided to hook up and start toward Montana. Over the years as we have been RVing, I have been trying to slow Michael down, encourage him to stop getting in the truck and not stopping until we are 10 hours down the road. I have been partially successful! Our plans were to stop in Story, WY for the night--there was a quilt store listed in my Quilters' Travel Companion book and a RV park, what more could you ask for?? Well, Michael changed the plans as we were going along and we decided to keep on going and ended up in Billings for the night. Big mistake!!! Our intentions were good--we would make a Costco and grocery store run and try to hook up with Michael's daughter whose birthday was Friday.

BUT--the RV parks in Billings are ridiculous and we knew that, we had just forgotten I guess! $40-45 a night for a spot crammed in beside someone else, the pool and spa were drained, we couldn't pick up the wi-fi signal from our original site and the poor girl in the office had no clue what customer service was! So, our advice to any RVer is to bypass Billings if at all possible!

We did have a wonderful dinner at Jake's on Friday night, Jake's is a Billings institution. Then on Sunday morning, we were able to meet up with Shannen, Kristen and Mark for breakfast. Costco and Wal-Mart and we headed to McLeod. Mom has finished her job at the dude ranch in Wyoming and she arrived at our house not too far behind us. She will stay with us a few days and start home for Arkansas in a round about way on Saturday.

The photos are from our motorcycle trip on Friday through Custer State Park.

This little burro looks like he is in jail--he is standing in the creek bed in the shade.
