Fort Peck Here We Come

We were heading down the driveway by 6:30am this morning and dodging deer all the way to Big Timber.  The buck deer are suicidal this time of year, they only have one thing on their minds!  Michael loves this new motorhome, he says it drives like a Cadillac! 

And we found a vehicle—now the question is do we own TWO impractical vehicles or just two fun vehicles??  A convertible and now a Jeep??  Yep, Al, we found us a Jeep this morning—a 1997 Sahara in really great shape.  We will pick the Jeep up on Thursday when we come back through.  It even has air conditioning so the wife is happy!  We are excited to have a “desert” vehicle for this winter’s travels!  And it will fit in the enclosed trailer with a little butter spread down the sides!

I’ve never been to Fort Peck, the largest lake in Montana but have read Ivan Doig’s book about the building of the Fort Peck dam and have always wanted to see the lake.  So, that is our destination for today and the reason for writing the blog early—odds of our having internet or phone connections out there in eastern Montana are slim to none!  So, blogs will be posted when I can—we will be back in civilization Thursday.


  1. Hey, congrats on the Jeep, you two totally impractical people.....:))

  2. Why does a Jeep have to be impractical? We had a Jeep for a few years and we really liked it. I could fold up back seat go buy groceries and go mud riding on the way home. Just don't expect it to get good gas mileage. My only complaint with our Jeep. Congrats on the FUN Jeep.


  3. Wheee heeee have a BLAST!
