June 15, 2015 .. We left USA Glacier.. headed for the Canadian Border. We arrived at the Border and answered all questions correctly, he left us through. We continued along the roads following signs to Waterton. We arrived at the Visitor's center and gathered all the info about the area. We found the park downtown and signed in for full hookups..$38.00 Canadian. We used the credit card and found out it was only $31.00 US Funds. We set up quickly and went for a drive around the area We stopped at the Prince of Wales Hotel to walk through the lobby and check out the grounds. We will see more tomorrow. We are having a hard time downloading the blog so we will catch up when we can.

June 14,2015 We drove about 100 miles today and arrived at Glacier Park. The campground is open at St. Marys, very few RV's are here. Too early in the season I guess. Only $11.50/nite with no hookups. Bad News the road is closed 1/2 mile north of the camp so we cannot drive on the Road to the Sun till June 19th. We will be gone by then. But we do drive up to Many Gacier for the day to see the old Hotel ...More later ... God Bless ...AirstreamHobo & Mom
June 13th,2015 we drive for 325 miles to Valier,MT. and find a city park for only $20/nite with electric. Again this park is on a lake and people love to fish and boat. More Later ... God Bless AirstreamHobo & Mom
June 6, 2015 ... We leave Roosevelt NP and head north thru North Dakota to Rt 2 west into Montana covering 180 miles today. We passed alot of Gas Fields along the way. We saw lots of camper camps set up for the workers that are here. Big trucks hauling everything you can think of. Lots of new highway construction too.
We find an Army Corp of Engineers park called Fort Peck Dam & Lake, one of the Largest earthen dams ever made. The campsites are very spacious and most campers have boats with them. We even saw fifth wheels towing the boats behind them ....very long rig ? Cost was $10/nite we got the last space since it is Friday. Everyone boats and fishes around here.
We drive up to the breast of the dam and see the Big Lake created by the Dam. Tomorrow we go into the Museum/ Nature Building for the history of the Dam.
We don't have a strong enough WiFi to down load pictures yet. But we will later I hope. God Bless...AirstreamHobo & Mom

June 11, 2015, We leave the Playgound Campground...no more episodes..Whew . We continue north on Rt 85. We stop at this little store in the middle of nowhere. It is a one person operation. There was a campgound in the rear filled with campers and horse trailers. We talked to the people inside that were on a Trail Ride for Organ Transplants as a public awareness. Riding 20 miles each day.
Mom and I ordered a BLT sandwich with coffee and ice tea. I also put some gas in the truck buying $30.00 worth. This was the highest fuel so far $3.06/gal. Most of the time we have paying about $2.69/gal.
We continue North on Rt 85 into North Dakota... We stop at Roosevelt National Park at the north unit.. Cost is $7.00/nite .. no Hookups.

I ask if it was peaceful around here? Wendell said for the most part ? Well after supper we were in the Airstream when Carol heard yelling. Next a Police Car pulled up and the officer got out to talk to a neighbor across the street, then another Police car showed up with 2 officers as back up. They talked to both parties for an 1/2 hour then they left....
Here they come again !!! They talked again and settled them down.. I think the neighbor was yelling profanities across the street to some one in a camper (look like a full timer ). I was waiting for the film crew to show up just like Cops !! The rest of the night was peaceful ... Good Night Zzzzzzz God Bless AirstreamHobo and Mom

June 10, .. We leave Mitchell at 9 am today still heading West on Rt 90. 4 hours later we arrive in Wall, SD. for the ultimate Tourist Trap ?? This place is pretty cool and gives travelers a place to stop and unwind from driving. The main store has the strip of many smaller stores as front design but as soon as you pick a door you are in one big room with walls dividing the different items for sale.
We saw signs for Free Ice Water all along Rt 90 for over a 100 miles. You see the cup we get and refills are free too! Coffee is only 5 cents a cup too. I got a free bumper sticker too.
We walked around for an hour looking at all the things. I found cowboy boots for $500.00.... Mom said NO !! Out back of main store there is lots more to see plus many photo opportunities to smile. There is a light rain falling but feels good and cools down the Hot Day.
We continue on Rt 90 West thru Sturgis, yes where the motorcycles gather during the 1st week of August. We go north on Rt 85 to find a Passport America Campground in Belle Fouche,SD. The rate was $16/water & electric .... Tired we stop here for the night, drove 350 miles today. That's enough for us old people?
