As most of you know we went to a Tim McGraw concert in Seattle last friday night. We had a great time and enjoyed all the bands that played there. Opening band was Love and Theft. Then we were entertained by Lady Antebellum. Great performers . The last to perform was Tim McGraw and his band. We had great seats and was able to see the performers up close. Here is a couple pictures.

OK I know I am slow, We left Polson last friday morning and I jokingly said to Vicki its only 530 miles to Mount Vernon. She really surprised me by saying go for it. With just a couple short breaks on the trip over we arrived here friday evening. Long day of travel but the weather was nice and the trip over was a good one other than fuel prices in Leavenworth. Most expensive fuel on the entire trip from Louisiana. That is what happens when you stop in a tourist trap town for fuel.
We have been enjoying our visit here at my cousins place. Will be here until the 30th when we fly up to Alaska for 2 weeks. Upon returning from there we are off to Dosewallips State park for a volunteer position working in the park.
And of course I had better mention this friday is the Tim Mcgraw concert in Seattle. I will post after the concert. so until then take care all.

We left Deer Lodge this morning with just a breeze blowing, About thirty miles and the wind picked up, not as bad as it has been but still a wind. We arrived in Ronan about 12:30 (what planning on my part) so stopped at the pizza cafe for lunch. Still the best pizza we have ever had. After stuffing ourselves we ventured on to Polson Motorcoach and KOA. We will be here through the 13th and leave on the 14th.

We have a great view of the lake and the Mission Mountains and we are enjoying it. Until later you all take care and God bless.

We left Loveland, Co. and went north on I-25, again fighting headwinds, Our next stop for the evening was Buffalo, WY. We stayed at Deer Park Campground. It is a very nice park far enough off the Interstates to be nice and quite. The park was named aptly as we enjoyed the deer wandering through the park. The next morning found us once again fighting some high headwinds, We stopped at Little Big Horn Battlefield and I checked out some of the battlegrounds, This is a very interesting place that is full of history, I could have enjoyed it so much more if the wind and cold weather had been better.
We did run into Darrel and Susie friends of ours from working at Hickory Farms a couple years ago. We had a nice short visit with them before we headed north again. Through Billings, MT and on west on I-90 to Livingston, MT. We met up there with Ray and Janice some more workamping friends, went out to a real nice dinner with them. Woke up yesterday to high wind warnings with gusts up to 65 so decided to stay another day. Ray made a very good dinner for us, which we really enjoyed. This morning We went out for breakfast then said our goodbyes and see you down the roads somewhere. We continued west on I-90 bucking strong headwinds again all day, arrived at Deer Lodge. MT and when we pulled into the KOA campground Cass met us before we could get out of the truck and showed us to our site. This is a very nice small campground right on the Clark Fork River, nice and peaceful here.
We will be off to Polson, MT in the morning for a weeks stay there before we head on to Washington.
