Over the Pass

Dillon, MT  High 37  Low 35

This journey out of Montana brings back memories of when we first started full timing. I retired the third of January and we took off on January 22, 2009 ahead of a winter storm. I was still in a wheelchair from a broken ankle and ruptured Achilles tendon.

This was our rig back then. All 72 feet of us.


Back in 2009 we only went as far as Bozeman, MT that first day and since it was so cold we spent the night in a hotel room. We have since learned how to cope (sort of) with the cold and stay in our Bungalow.

This is the road outside of Dillon back in 2009.

January 2009

These are the pictures I took today when we left Dillon.

Gypsy – these pictures are for you. Enjoy.

And this is what the other side of Monida Pass looked like this morning as we came into Idaho.


We are settled for the night at North Bingham County RV Park near Shelley, ID. The sun is shining and it is 44 degrees which feels wonderful.


  1. For a second I thought you were double towing again. Whew. Find the sunshine, and the warmth.

  2. way too much snow for my liking, safe travels...

  3. The snow is pretty to look at but I don't want to be in it. It's a good thing you're heading south.

  4. Definitely glad you are leaving the snow behind and slowly heading for a warmer climate.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  5. Pictures are beautiful but yes nice to be leaving it behind I'm sure. Weather here has cooled off some and mornings are cool we were at 58 thing morning. Safe travels

  6. Even if its cold nothing quite like a sunny day, soon you will be in the heat again.

  7. Wow, that was quite a wagon train you started with! :c)

  8. It was 35* this morning nothing of Williams, AZ. No snow, though. I am also thinking g it is time to head south.

  9. I didn't know it got so cold up there so soon. Brrrr.

  10. Great pictures! The highway looks like and endless ribbon.


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
