Westward, Ho!

Returning from parts HOT, HOT, HOT!  This is very atypical for we normally soggy northwesterners.  Suffice to say that we have survived, thank goodness for air conditioning in the rig, as well as some natural breezes and a couple of fans.  The rig has (we think) suffered a couple of challenges and we will be putting it into the hands of the service techs for a few days to do some touch up's.  I will see if any of the photos will upload,

Here we are in Three Forks, Montana, outside of Butte.  One of my most favorite places and a MUST-STOP along the way.  [on the way west we stopped for the requisite cinnamon roll and 3 different kinds of flour and some oatmeal.  Yum!]  Immediately upon leaving here we came upon,
a 2 hour stoppage on I-90.  No one knew what this was about, but eventually we were all routed into one lane and then off the freeway.  We simply followed others and hoped they would return us to I-90, which they eventually did, via Amsterdam (!) Montana.  With the temperature in the high 90's it didn't make for the happiest of drivers.  Because this slowed us down considerably, we did a couple of route changes.  Eventually we made it to our destination, the Camplex facility in Gillette, Wyoming.
There were approximately 190+ RV's at the facility.  All the parking was in these fields, but we had power, water and a dump station.  Not one iota of shade, but it worked well.  Much, much fun and more stories to tell.  [this poor connection is struggling so I will quit for today).  I will  continue the adventures.
