Here We Go!

Yes it was raining and windy when we all were getting ready to to get ready to leave the Malmstrom AFB Famcamp. What a send off from Great Falls, MT.  The Beast needed a good rinse anyhow. There goes those shiny wheels. I got two showers this morning. Good thing I didn’t wash the Beast.  I prefer not to drive in the rain like a lot of other Rvers. I’m known for pulling off the road if it starts to rain. One - I try to keep the Beast clean and two the idiot level goes up a couple of notches. The handy dandy weatherman is calling for this kind of weather thru to at least towards the end of the week.  Time to leave.  The cell phones are turned off for three weeks. The “Last Frontier Gang” will be coming together more the next few days.  Gary & Mary Olson are leaving Vegas today.  I guess they won enough money to pay for their fuel. I estimate they will put the landing gears down around us somewhere between Calgary and Edmonton. We will have to make sure our mirrors are in when they come by.

We will be staying here two nights. We all decided to bypass  Calgary because the park we wanted to stay at isn’t looking that great. So now we will head for Edmonton and stay there two nights at the Alberta Beach Golf RV Resort. It’s a Passport America park

Miles today (fr border) 67.  Total trip miles 67

I plan on posting the miles each blog. You will be able to tell how many miles we drove that day plus how many miles for the entire trip up to and return from Alaska – Sweetgrass, MT to Sweetgrass, MT.

See ya….
