Missouri River

Boy was it ever hot yesterday as we traveled north from Billings headed to a BLM recreation site—we arrived just before 4pm and proceeded to melt the rest of the afternoon and evening away.  We sure have a knack for picking hot days to travel don’t we Gina and Rollie??? 

Kipp BLM Rec campsite Our site at the Kipp BLM Recreation Site along the banks of the Missouri RiverMissouri River Mr. Kipp was a fur trapper and a very successful one at that.  Lewis and Clark camped near this site in 1805. 

Today we got on the road shortly after 9am and quickly came to a screeching stop behind thisWhat is this thing3 What is this thing2 What is this thingwe (along with many other cars and trucks) followed this rig for over 20 miles averaging around 15mph!!  The rig and all its pilot cars and a big loader pulled over at the turnoff to the Zortman Gold Mine so it may have been some sort of mining equipment??

Back on the road again we are headed to Fort Peck Lake—largest lake in Montana, 134 miles long and 1500 miles of shoreline.


  1. I sure hope you convinced Mike to run that generator this time.LOL We're not there this time so Mike will have to pay for all of the diesel this time. That site sure looks inviting. Sounds like there will be some jeep riding going on this winter in the desert. Miss y'all!!

    Take care and safe travels,
    Rollie & Gina

  2. Sure liked your overnight spot.. anxious to see the Fort Peck Lake!
