Traveling continues sans Internet

I am a bit surprised at how difficult it has been to find good Internet "hot spots". It is only very sporadically that we have been able to get online. There is always the occasional McDonalds or Barnes and Noble, but to have my camera and cable and computer when there doesn't always occur in sync.

We are leaving Michigan on Sunday and heading west on I-90. We plan on spending a couple of days in the Badlands and to see Mt. Rushmore and the Crazy Horse monument. We will try for an update there. I am reassured that there are a few folks out there who haven't given up on this Nana. I promise more to come with more regularity.

Good wishes to you all.

I'm really not ignoring you

Traveling across the U.S. has surely been an amazing adventure. But it also means several campgrounds without internet access. So just know that when we get settled on Wednesday (12 August) we should be able to find internet access and I'll upload some more pictures. I have also been working on one small, quilting project, (so you don't think I've forgotten how) :-)

Enjoy August.

Are you old enough to remember. . . .

there was an advertising song, "See the USA in your Chevrolet". Well, we are seeing the USA in our Jayco motorhome. Quite the amazing adventure. We stayed last night in St. Regis, Montana

and headed east on I-90.

Doesn't this look like it should be part of the Ponderosa Ranch. I was looking for Hoss' (don't know how to spell that)

By shortly after Butte, I was in new-to-me territory. Interesting to see this country of ours.
Montana is a pretty big state. Lots of mining has gone on here. Cattle, wheat, sheep, horses. We even saw one sign that said: Quilt Store, but it continues to be hot and our days are long enough with our Rest Area stops. But we are eating well and seem to have packed well for meals.

Tonight we are over-nighting in Billings and heading for Medora, North Dakota tomorrow. It's time for the Harley Davidson gathering in Sturgis, so we are going north and avoiding that. The adventure continues. Life is good!
