I forgot to tell one story last night. We started hearing this noise. I think it is the heater fan. David is checking gauges. It is really getting annoying now. I put a CD in to try to drown out the noise. David finally has had enough, not sure if it is the noise or my griping. Anyway he pulls over and as we are getting to get out of the car, David says look between seats. There is our charger just buzzing away and hot. Thank the Lord it wasn’t our little Outback. She is a good old girl.
We got an early start today. We headed out at 7am. We said good bye to Montana at 10:04 as we crossed the border of Wyoming.Continue reading “Montana, Wyoming and Colorado Day 5 of Our Road Trip”
We left Leduc at 8:47 on a beautiful sunny day. By 9:15 we had driven 2057 miles on our trip so far.
Well we finally made it to Calgary where we could pick up our passports. Following the directions I wrote down we went the wrong way. We ended way outside of town. We then thought about going a different way and ended outside of town again. We then stopped and David asked directions. Yes my husband will ask directions. A nice customer got us directions on his phone. He told us we had to drive to the other side of town. After about an hour and a half of circling Calgary we found the Digital Mail which was also FedEx. We now have our passports. Thank you, Lord.
We decide to eat before we head out. We checked out a place called Tim Horton but it was just a fast food and since we are only eating one meal out a day we want something good.
Across the street we see a Fergus and Bix. We decide to eat there. We decide we deserve a beer, so we had a local brew. We ordered gumbo and a sandwich to share. We had keylime pie, which was the greenest one I had ever seen. It was good though and also came with raspberry sorbet.
David dumped 5 gallons of gas in the tank. We then stopped at the gas station and topped off. Away we went at 2:22pm on to Texas.
We arrived at the US border and got across with no problem at 6:03pm. It was great just drove up to the window and off we went.
We gassed up again in Great Falls at 7:46pm. We decided to keep going for awhile before we looked for a hotel.
What we didn’t realize was we were in the middle of ranch country which means miles of nothing. I was starting to think it will be sleeping in the car tonight. Then we came to the little town of Harlowton, Montana right where we changed highways. Right at that corner was the Corral Motel. We pulled into this old motel where David paid $58.85 for our room. It was very small but clean.
There was no wifi at the hotel, so I am writing this on my phone as we travel on. It is taking a while because I can’t type on this thing with my big fingers. Really have you watched how fast these kids can type.
Well thanks for stopping 👋
I walked out of our hotel and there was snow on the car. It was the heavy wet stuff, so it was easy to get off the car. We loaded up and left at 8:45.Continue reading “Road Trip Day 3”
We have found out that when you are older you can’t drive all night and when it gets dark find a hotel.Continue reading “Road Trip Day 2”
I know it has been a long time since I have gotten time to blog, but life has been very busy. I have spent time taking care of grandkids, cleaning apartments so Dan, my son in law, c.an get them rented, and getting the front yard ready for summer and tons of other things but I am back now.
We finally got the call we had been waiting for. My 90 year old parents have moved out of the family home and into a retirement home, so it is time for us to go to Texas to help Dina, my sister, and Kenneth, my brother, get the house emptied and ready to sell. We decided to drive down.Continue reading “Road Tripping”
