Montana – 27 June – 10 July – Summer 2017

Little Big Horn Battlefield

Well it’s Tuesday 27 June and we are on our way to Billings, Montana.  Wide open spaces and rolling hills and you can spot mountains in the distance.  Not too many trees, not yet anyways.  We arrived at the Little Big Horn and the battle that happened there is commonly referred to as Custer’s Last Stand and it’s where the US forces were defeated.  This battle was an armed engagement between combined forces of the Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes and the 7th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army.  The battle took place on June 25–26, 1876, along the Little Bighorn River in the Crow Indian Reservation in southeastern Montana.

Michigan/Illinois/Wisconsin – 13-15 June – Summer 2017

We left Sarnia on Tuesday, 13 June; had to stop at Tim Hortons for our last “fix”  lol before we hit the border.  We had no issues at the border; there was construction but still didn’t take that long to get to the other side.  We were fortunate.

Eden Springs Campground –  Look at us all by ourselves !

Ontario – 11-13 June – Summer 2017

We left our home on Sunday 11 June 2017.   33 Celsius and stinking hot !!

I had a terrible cold and Clint said maybe we should delay our trip but like a trooper I said Nope Let’s Roll !    I’ll sleep in the truck.  Which is exactly what I did for the first couple of days.  We drove to Kitchener, Ontario for the first night.  We had received a recall notice for our trailer and had an appointment at Leisure Days RV Centre for the next day.
