Our First Walk

Sunday was our official move in. The muscle that Heather hired showed up at 1 to unload the trailer. I know Dan and David were glad they didn’t have to do it all. The first thing I did was get our bed set up. It sure was nice to sleep in our own bed. Of course, we didn’t bring the box spring because it is old. We have a new one coming on Thursday.

The best thing that happened was that Jim and Linda made it on Sunday afternoon. It was nice to have the gang back together. It was sooner than Heather, David and I thought. We thought the earliest was going to be Monday.

Heather and I went to Aldi’s to by a few groceries for the house. Heather made bean and cheese burrito’s for dinner. I still am not eating much because of the withdraws.

Monday we all went shopping in IKEA which is in Baltimore. The kids bought some of the furniture they needed there. We had all sold a lot of our stuff to save on weight in the trailer. I guess we didn’t leave enough behind since half of our stuff is still in Edmonton, Canada

New Home

Sorry I am a week late writing my blog. The hotel we stayed in last I couldn’t get online to post this blog and then we had no internet in the new house. So here is the post from Saturday to continue our last leg of our journey.

We left our hotel at 8:30 with 194 miles to go. Hoping to see our new home around noon.

Toll Roads

We got a late start today because Kate decided to get up at 4:30 and not go back to sleep. So Mom and Dad were kind of slow moving this morning. We left at 9:25 with only 584 miles to go before we were at our new home.

We gassed up as soon as we left the hotel. Gas was $2.49 a gallon. We got 9.55 gallons which cost $23.87.

Three States

We did get an early start today. We left the hotel at 8:15. We were out of diapers so David and I took off in search of them. We took the first exit along the freeway and found nothing. Then we couldn’t get back on the road going east. We ended up right back where we had started from.

Leaving Them Behind

David and I left everyone behind as we headed out to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We had to get to Costco to pick up my Cymbalta. We figured we could get there and pick it up, then meet the rest of our caravan on Highway 90.

As we were getting back on the highway from the hotel I could see the Missouri River. We were well on our way by 7:40.

To Mt Rushmore or not to Mt Rushmore

Well by the time everyone got checked into the hotel last night and ate no one wanted to check out Deadwood. I guess the kids really wanted to see Deadwood because there is a TV show that they watch. It has even been on for 3 seasons and I guess now they are coming out with a movie.

It was decided that David, Heather and would go back to see Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse, then catch up with the rest of the group. We could drive a lot faster since we weren’t towing anything.

If you want to check out Deadwood continue reading.

Mammoths, Mammoths, Everywhere!

This was supposed to be the day of seeing new things. Well at least for some of us. Our friends, Steve and Nancy, had told us about this really cool place called Mammoth Site in Hot Springs, South Dakota. Since we were kind of going to be in the area because we were going to Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse we thought we could squeeze it in too.

Well if you have been following along you would have noticed that things don’t seem to always go as planned for us.

Goodbye Montana and Hello Wyoming

I started my morning off by writing my blog I should have written the night before. David had brought me breakfast, so I could get it done before I had a couple of adorable little girls come to visit their Oma.

They were both very concerned about the clock that was blinking. I would have set it but I wasn’t sure what time it was with the Day Light Savings. I now have all our electronics at the right time, including my fitbit which has been wrong since we left Alaska time zone.

Old Friends and the USA

We started the day with our beautiful granddaughters. The other grandma, Linda, came to hang out with us too.

We are setting off a little later today because we just have a little way to go because we are stopping in Great Falls, Montana to visit some old friends.

Making Time

We started our day once again with Bekka and Kate. They were helping Granpa with the luggage.

Bekka is more involved with playing with Alice’s leash than eating her apple. Kate then managed to get both of theirs.

Dan had said we were going to leave at 9 but we were running a little late it was more like 9:45. This is us as we are getting ready to head out.
