Welcome to Montana!!
Monday, August 15, We leave the camp(Bowman, ND.) Headed west on Rt. 12. Down the road we run into construction which winds thru the mountains on a dirt/gravel road. We even have a lead truck show us which lane to be in. This goes on for 7 miles at 20 MPH. I thought I was in Alaska on these roads. the dust was kicking up and we drove with the windows closed. We stopped at Plevna, for a lunch snack in the airstream, and parked next to a closed old station, also across from a grain elevator that was closed up.
Then back to a regular road to Forsyth then west on Rt. 12 toward Roundup, Montana. We drove for 60 miles only passing 4-5 cars/trucks along the way. wow what a lonely highway, speed limit was 65 but it was still boring. We passed 2 small villages along the way. One had a population of 19 ??? What do these people do over winter? When we arrived in Roundup, We were ready for an early rest. We stayed at a motel with Campground, full hookups with cable and wi-fi. This was a long day, I think we covered about 245 miles. Time to relax.... Pictures..
