the little big horn (also I nice camp ground and free Ice cream
at check-in )...Then onto Fairmont RV Park an Camp Ground
Anaconda Montana the next night, we were going to stop
for the in Idaho near the washigton boarder but we arrived
there at about 1pm, the DW said why stop it's early, I said
ok but I told her I'm not stopping 100 miles from so hang on
were going to the house...We arrived that evening at 7:45pm
at total of over 700 mile's, reminded me of when i was driving over the road again.....


And I thought I was bookin down the road at just over 500 miles a day....

I have to tell you time is money and miles is the answer
when I was driving OTR, average anywhere from 550 to
600 most days by myself When running teaming we
would do around 1100 to 1200 miles a days depending on
the day and the weather. When teaming you only stop
for fuel and food an most times they were together along
with a shower You get to see allot of country from
the cab window, but not much in the way of
site-seeing

Now that I can slow down a bit I'm seeing the county
I passed at 70 and 75mph night or day along with the
DW. Much more fun that looking across the cab at some
guy that has a two day old beard and some days stinks
up the cab from the beans he ate the night before
Of course he more than likely could say the same about
me

Finally get to take the Chappy out next weekend. Spent this camping season house hunting, selling and moving.
Taking a short trip into the Hill Country ( Lost Maples) for a 4 day weekend and hopefully a few more short ones before winter.
Had the Chappy in the driveway and plugged into my 30 amp garage plug. l De-winterized her and ran everything for a couple days. All systems go, she runs just like we left her.
