Where I stayed
KOA Great Falls
Shortly after I spotted a Gallatine National Forest campground and decided to camp there - instead of going all the way down to the Bozeman KOA on I-90. It was a very nice and quiet location with plenty of firewood. I decided to spend two days there (Friday to Sunday).
While in Billings I had experienced strange problems with my pc (see my previous blog)
At the Billings KOA I spoke with my nice neighbours, Maria and Ricardo. They are from Sacremento, CA, and were headed to Minnesota. He is now retired but worked on 'the black box for the space shuttle' for 28 years. They ride a 'trike' - a motorcycle with three instead of two wheels. It's more safe, said Maria, and also you can carry more luggage with you. They have five adult children - four boys and a girl. Good luck to them.
Yesterday I took a hard look at my future travel plans. My intent now is to drove up to Highway 2 and continue west to the Pacific - stopping for at day or two at Glacier National Park - and then head down along the coast on 101 to San Francisco. From there I will go east to Salt Lake City - along the Pony Express Trail - and then southeast to New Mexico. I have never been to Utah, and New Mexico was sheer delight, when Rita and I were there in May.
