Montana Rains

July 12 to 13, 2019 – Livingston KOA, Livingston, Montana

Another uneventful drive today through the rest of Wyoming and into Montana. We had warm, sunny weather the whole way here. Our site faces the campground office, so we can see everyone coming in. Also, the Beartooth Mountains are very visible behind us.

Since we got in a bit early (around 2:00 PM), we hooked everything up so we could do some laundry in the trailer. We also sat outside under our awning and enjoyed watching the world go by for a while. Malcolm walked down to see the Yellowstone River rushing by (the camping cabins back up to the river).

While we were cooking dinner, a storm rolled in. It hailed for a few minutes – mostly pea-sized hail, then settled into a steady rain with some occasional thunder. The temperature cooled down from the upper-80s into the mid-60s. Should be a chilly morning tomorrow.

While sitting outside, Malcolm called our next stop – the only one we didn’t pre-arrange a reservation for – only to find out they are full tomorrow. There is some type of festival going on in the Idaho panhandle area or Spokane, Washington area that has all the campgrounds through that stretch booked full. We finally found something a good ways west of Spokane, which means we have a nearly 500 mile drive tomorrow. Fortunately, that is the last stop before we reach our destination in Gig Harbor, WA, so we’ll have a shorter drive on Sunday.

  1. In your previous post you mentioned having to buy and replace windshield wiper blade. After and experience some years back, the passenger’s side wiper blade came apart during a heavy down poor. I had to remove the blade and tied a rag around the wiper arm to prevent windshield damage. Since then, I always have a spare set of blades in the truck while traveling. Finding a Walmart or auto parts store out in the middle of no where can be a challenge even though it is just wiper blades.
    Thanks for your travel log posts. Brings back memories of our extensive travel days. Age has now become a factor in our ability to travel such as you folks are doing.
