Another Trip To Billings, Not So Hot

We’ve discussed often the lack of RV parks in Billings or rather should I say affordable RV parks.  We refuse to pay over $50 a night just to park the motorhome.  These same two high priced RV parks have some strong influence in Billings too because the city council has outlawed overnight parking anywhere in Billings, so no Wal Mart boondocking.

We had hoped our Elk’s Club membership would be finalized by this week but it was not to be.  Michael will become an Elk’s member in late July in Billings, then we can park in their lot overnight.

Doctor appointment again today so another trip to Billings instead of getting to take the motorhome down and spend a couple nights.  At least it wasn’t as hot and Jim and Ellie went along for company!  We had a great day!

Michael received some good news at the office of his new rheumatologist.  Dr. Bolding leans toward Michael having gout and maybe some inflammatory arthritis instead of rheumatoid arthritis.  To us this is very good news!!  When we walked into this doctor’s office we knew we were in the right place.  There were huge portraits of her large standard poodles everywhere, poodle mousepads, dog calendars—this doctor had to be OK! and she was better than OK spending a hour with us and giving Michael a thorough checkup!

And what does a man who has just been told he probably has gout order for lunch???IMG_2042 

IMG_2043 We all enjoyed our lunch at Jake’s, a local restaurant. 

And remind me never to go into Costco on the first day of the new coupons!  The place was beyond packed!  And the pharmacy was the same way—took me forever to get Michael’s prescriptions. 

We retrieved Emmi who kept Nat company, dropped Jim & Ellie at their rig so they could liberate Jasmine and Mr. BoBo and came up the Boulder.  We have more plans with Jim and Ellie for tomorrow.


  1. My son has gout in his big toe and when the doc told him to cut out red meat and wine, he said you might as well schedule the surgery and get it off of there cause that ain't happening. So far he is still eating steaks, drinking wine and limping a

  2. I don't know what the rest of your post said because I never got past the picture of the best looking hamburger I've seen in a long, long time!!

  3. We have stayed overnight behind the Cracker Barrel several times. I had heard of that new law several years ago but Cracker Barrel didn't seem to have a problem with it.

  4. I love the looks of that Goutburger:))
