We are starting our 2 week trip today!

Recommended Posts

We are leaving today and hope to be on the road for 2 weeks. We are set to meet up with our friends at the KAO in Elensburg, WA. tonight. I’m just waiting for Amazon to deliver a new propane detector because the first one they sent was defective. Then for the Wife to get off work and we are out! I’m a little nervous after our last long trip with the truck and camper, to Yellowstone. We spent 4 days trying to fix the screw up the shop made changing our power steering pump. Mark Smith found me a new pulley and Lisa Smith drove 9 hour there and 9 hour back, to deliver us the parts we needed. I really don’t want to go through something like that again. What ever happens we will deal with it. Other than that, I’m pretty excited to hit the road.

 

we are scheduled to start in Montana and go to 4 corners in Southern Utah/Colorado.We are hitting a bunch of hot springs on the way. I will try to update this thread with pictures as we go.

That's a long trip, have fun.    I'd love to be off and on the road this time of year, but not with what I do for work.   

 

 

 

We are planning a trip to the SW in the spring, but have not made a solid plan.

Don’t worry, Yellowstone is only about 16 hours one way now. :right:

 

Lisa will show up with two pillows this time.

Party at Ben’s place.

Let me know when.   I won't be able to make it but it can be another commitment on my calendar I ignore.

We stayed the first night at the KOA in Elensberg and met up with our friends that we travel with.

We traveled to Hot Springs, Montana yesterday (350 miles) and we are now staying at the Symes Hot Springs Hotel. It says hotel but we are staying in the camper basically in their yard.

We were in the 104* tub with a bunch of younger women, hairy old men and an amazing amount of Russians last night.

It was worse than fishing season on the Stiily. Everyone was elbow to elbow.

 We just had to cancel our last trip, so it looks like spring time before our next trip.

Here is a picture of the hot springs and hotel. You can see our camper behind the pool house.

Did you shoehorn yourself in-between a couple of the hairy old guys?

Found these in the back parking lot of the Hotel.

The 30 sedan has been modified into a pick up. It appears to be mostly intact. Pretty sure there is a reason they are behind chicken wire. I would LOVE to have either one.

We went by Boulder Hot Springs. I guess this place is pretty famous.

We didn’t stay very long at Boulder. Just checking the place out.

We also stopped at Norris Hot Springs. We stayed there and soaked for a bit. They serve you beer and food while you are soaking. Very nice place but a little windy.

We are staying the night in Ennis Montana tonight. We will travel to Jackson Hole, WY. tomorrow.
