Another new state - Wyoming

23 October 2016 | Gillette, Wyoming
Marilyn Sunny and warm
Today we traveled from Billings, Montana to Gillette, Wyoming. Along the way we visited the battlefield where Custer's Last Stand happened in 1876. We also visited the Occidental Hotel in Buffalo, Wy. This hotel was in business at the time of the Custer battle.

Tomorrow we hope to visit Mt Rushmore in South Dakota- another new state.

Still in Montana

Marilyn. Sunny
We drove from Missoula to Billings today. It was a beautiful sunny day - a nice change from the rain from Seattle to Missoula.

We crossed the Continental Divide. Now the rivers run East. The road goes along the Lewis And Clark expedition route. Clark Fork - feeding the Columbia- is the western River used and of course the Missouri River is on the East. It is amazing how close the headwaters of the Missouri are to Clark Fork.

First 500 miles -statute- in Missoula, MT

Marilyn - rain but thankful no snow
Drove through three states. Went from the width of WA through Spokane, then through Idaho in the skinny part- less than 100 miles but very beautiful with the mountains and fall colors- even in the rain. We are now in Missoula, Mt.

Another Adventure

20 October 2016 | North Bend, Wa
Much rain
We spent two weeks in Anacordes, WA. We made arrangements to get the boat hauled and the company who we will probably list the boat with lent us a Suburban. We made good use of it and moved our accumulation of stuff to a UHaul locker and loaded it into a 10 foot truck this morning.

We drove to Woodinville and had a lovely dinner with crew Doug and Denise. We saw Doug's railroad. We then drove to North Bend, WA for the start of the trek to Va by road. They give us 9 days and 3295 miles.

Arrived Anacortes, WA

05 October 2016 | Cap Sante Marina, Anacortes, Wa
Marilyn. Beautiful, warm and sunny

Arrived after a nice uneventful sail in Anacortes,WA. We are at Cap Sante Marina - very nice and new. Nice amenities like restaurants, laundry, shopping - including Safeway. We will probably be here awhile cleaning up.
