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.

Day 4 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 👋
