Butte, MT High 78 Low 44
My biggest concern was getting the rig out of Todd’s subdivision because of all the road construction. Jim talked to the flagger before we pulled out and she told him she would watch for us and move barrels so we could maneuver.
With her help we made it out just fine if very slowly. She’s running ahead of us to move the cones and barrels. We wouldn’t fit down the right side because the trees would have torn up the rig.
Remember how green Montana was in June when we went over Bozeman Pass.
This is how it looked as we came through yesterday.
Do you think maybe we had the air conditioning on a little high?
My nerves are shot and I’m just plain tired.
To get to Butte you have to climb Homestake Pass. It’s a long steep climb but no problem for our Chevy Duramax.
And what goes up has to come down into Butte.
We stayed at the Walmart which has easy access from the Interstate and also in and out of the parking lot. Must have been about 10 rigs keeping us company. After we got the girls settled, we picked up Tara and went to dinner at Fred’s BBQ. Jim and I had their steak sandwich which was really good. We would definitely go back there again. Eric had a class so he couldn’t join us. We’ll have to meet him next summer when we come through this way.
Back on the road this morning for more adventures.
