The gentleman at the service station spent a great deal of time trying to fix the sound from the engine this morning and finally we decided I could make it to Billings which was a few hours away but at least there would be a ford dealership there. Our whole trip here passed uneventful until we took our first turn to the KOA and then stalled ! We limped into the KOA as each time we slowed down it would stall. This was a new thing as it wasn't the sound we heard before in the last town but how blessed we are that once again all of our needs are taken care of and we have this great KOA to stay in with a wonderful pool and a store ! We were not able to get into the service station for 4 days as it is Friday and Monday is booked ! I called my AAA and they can tow us on Tuesday morning. See, even our towing is covered ! Well, we all have been swimming, reading, cleaning out the motorhome and playing ! I have actually been paying he kids to do simple jobs as an excuse to give them money for pinball and ice cream ! I am talking 50 cents a job ! They can't believe their luck ! Morgan can't believe her luck because she is sleeping in the 2 person tent outside by herself - by choice ! Angus has a tire swing right outside our door and lots of little kids always calling his name ! The pool has the most beautiful view of the rock cliffs that line the Yellowstone River which we are a stone's throw away from! Well, we are getting close to the end of our journey but there are still parts of Montana left to explore which hopefully we will be getting to soon!

miss you
Wow you guys sure are having an adventure. It is all back to work around here. We miss you all. We had our bouncing baby 19 yr old move in with us..he is soooo cute. Stay back girls! ha ha! And he is sooo good. Dallin took him out to a young adult barbque and he had fun...they will invite him to more stuff I am sure. We ripped the back shed off our house, after we caught mouse number 18...that seemes to have improved..gotta work will write a bit later

love you all...thank you for the b-day card..It cracked me up!!!

Heh, Tracy, thanks for including me on your list. Now I am a TravelPod member and I think this is a cool idea. It is a bit like twittering, no? Well, anyway what unwanted excitement you are having. I always hated it when our cars broke down on holidays with a pile of kids. How come Shawn didn't go with you? Is Coralynn with you? Did you take the other guy along? What is his name? Bob. He would be useful, heh. :) Den
