'18/#26 Counting Days And Watching Weather

We are still in West Yellowstone and checking the calender every day. It has been a lot of fun here but as I've said in the past, our house is on wheels and wheels are meant to roll. After today we have 10 more days before we get those wheels rolling. We made a final trip to the big city of Bozeman for our last big shopping to prepare for our journey south. We always try to pre-cook some dinners that will be easy to heat up on the road and we will be doing that over the next week or so. Also we are doing some major laundry before we have to close up the bath house and laundry for winterizing. In other words, we will soon be on our way.

Over the past couple of days we have also been watching the weather. First of all, like everyone else, we have been following Hurricane Michael. With a lot of family and friends all over Florida it is a concern to us. Fortunately none of our extended family is in the panhandle and all are doing OK as far as we know. Some wind and some rain from the outskirts of the hurricane is all that has impacted them we are happy to report.

We have also been watching the weather here in Montana and checking the long term forecast. All the work campers are hoping for clear skies and roads when we leave West Yellowstone. No one likes to drive in inclement weather and coming down the mountain with a 40 foot RV is, well.....more excitement than any of us want. For two days we have had rain, sleet, and snow in small amounts. Nothing has accumulated but it has been a little sloppy out there. This morning we woke to about 3" of snow on the ground. It is pretty and we are enjoying the views but hopefully it will all be gone when we are ready to leave.

Now is a good time for me to sign off and get on with my day in the campground that is home for us for the next 10 days because......

Home is where we park it,
Frank and Mary
