Heading Home

I am finally back after a long break.  I will fill you in on what has been happening here but I think we need to get back from our trip across country first.

After spending Christmas with our Washington family and getting snowed in once again we finally are heading home.  Our son, Cade, and his daughter, Brodie, are moving to York to be closer to us.

We left trying to outrun the snow.

Sagebluff RV Park Again

I woke up at 5 and it was 23 degrees and snowing.  David got up soon after me and took Harrison out.  He said there was about 4 to 6 inches of snow.  He also talked to the snowplow guy and he told us the road was only for necessary travel which we were not.  If we want to go the other way it’s worse because that one was closed.  He told us to watch the 511 that they kept it updated.

We kept watching the snow fall.  I was watching the 511 maps. At noon we decided we better stay another night here at the Sagebrush RV Park. We thought that would be the safest since we wouldn’t be traveling that far and we weren’t sure where the next RV stop was.

David and I cleaned the RV good.  We played games.  It was a relaxing afternoon.  Until David decided it would be a good idea to shovel the driveway and around the RV.  The sun is out now and it has stopped snowing.  Hopefully, we will be able to leave in the morning.

We even have icicles.

When we stayed at the Diamond A we bought some Pemmican that one of the daughters makes.  It was wonderful.  You can order it at the store.

We highly recommend it.

Well we are hunkered down at 5 and 16 degrees.

Thanks for stopping by!

Awnings, Mount Rushmore, Snow, 9 States and Sagebluff RV Park

We woke up at 6 to 34 degrees. It was a very comfortable night.

After David walked Harrison. We headed out as the sun was coming up at 7:18.

Harrison decided that he should ride in my foot well.

I thought I would let him because we were stopping for gas soon. Instead he decided to drive so it was either that or this.

He stayed for awhile then when back to settle in for the ride.

Gas was higher today at $3.29.

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.

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.

Spectacular Sunset

We ate breakfast at the hotel before we headed out. This morning was a good breakfast with waffles, eggs and bacon. That should hold us over for a little while.

Started my day out with a couple cute girls who I bathed while Mommy and Daddy packed up. We even got a little pony on the top of Kate’s head. She finally has enough to put up.

Very Long Day

On this beautiful Sunday morning in Watson Lake we stopped to look at the license plate forest. It was around 9:30. We are getting off earlier than we have.

The license plate forest has grown over the years that I have lived in Alaska.

The Sign Post Forest, a world famous attraction was started in 1942 by a homesick U.S. Army G.I., Carl K. Lindley of Danville, Il., Company D, 341st Engineers. While working on the Alaska Highway, he erected a sign here pointing the way and stating the mileage to his hometown. Others followed his lead and are still doing so to this day. On July 20, 1990, Olen and Anita Walker of Bryan, Ohio placed the 10,000th sign. Carl K. Lindley and his wife visited the site in 1992, 50 years after his first post was erected.
