For the past two days we have been on a beautiful section of I-90. The pictures do not capture the vast rolling hills and the sky dominating every scene. This special section starts around Rapid City, winds through Wyoming and gets even more spectacular in Montana. Today we have been following the Yellowstone River from Billings, our last night’s stop. It’s a wide, clear river full of rocks and rapids with snow capped dark mountains in the distance. Sorry, our pictures where taken from the car as there was nowhere to stop.
We are still making good time in our mission to cross the country. If all goes well, we should be in Spokane, WA tomorrow night and just below the Canadian border by Saturday.
We have had some hiccups. The hubby has not been at his best after having problems with acid stomach. Several nights ago I contemplated taking him to the emergency room as the attack went on for hours. But he got through it and is now taking some generic meds. I truly thought that it was the end of our trip.
And the cursed refrigerator is acting up. I did not even try to start it before we left cause the pilot keeps blowing out as we travel. But Tuesday we started smelling gas around the propane tanks, even when they were turned off. This morning was spent in a Billings RV shop where they replaced the gas regulator. As soon as we started traveling the pilot light went off again. I started the pilot a few hours ago and now the fridge will not cool! That’s the last money we are spending on this refrigerator!
Closing with pictures from the little Canon camera….just downloaded them….thought they did a good job of showing the trip so far!
