Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile Site, ND

Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile Museum
While visiting Malmstrom AFB, in Montana, I visited their on-base museum. Malmstrom AFB's mission is now only to maintain 150 Minuteman III missiles. When I first started in the US Air Force, my first assignment was to F.E. Warren AFB, whose only mission is also to maintain 150 Minuteman Missiles. I asked at the Malmstrom AFB base if there were any missile silos that were open for tours and I lear...

Hanging Out in North Dakota

Scandinavian Heritage Park
 We got lucky! The weather cleared up and we had a perfect afternoon and evening for the Pitchfork Fondue and the Medora Musical. The food at the Pitchfork Fondue was pretty good. And yes, they do deep-fry the steaks on a large pitch fork. Dinner included a buffet of baked potatoes, baked beans, coleslaw, garlic bread, salad items, a brownie, and lemonade. The Medora Musical was next doo...

Hope you are spending some time in MN on your way to Iowa! The North Shore of Lake Superior is unbelievably beautiful.

Slowly Moving East into North Dakota

Great Falls, MT
We enjoyed our 5 days at the Malmstrom AFB Gateway FamCamp, MT. We took a day drive to Helena to visit the Fort Harrison RV Park and also searched and found the actual "Great Falls" in Great Falls, MT. I say "found", as they are not well publicized. It's a small road to find the falls, north of town. These falls are also known as "Big Falls". We also enjoyed a day at the Lewis and Clark Interpreti...

Wow! Maiden voyage to Alaska! We didn't get to Alaska until after full-timing for over 10 years. Safe Travels!

Glacier National Park, MT

Glacier National Park, MT
After leaving the Rexford Bench USFS Campground near Eureka, MT, we headed to the Sundance RV Park in Coram, MT. Even at $45 a night, it was one of the least expensive RV parks near the west entrance to Glacier National Park. Not a great RV Park, but it worked fine for our needs. We were only a few miles from the West side of Glacier National Park. The famous "Going to the Sun" road wasn't ye...

Spokane WA and Banff, Alberta, Canada

Spokane Falls, WA
After leaving West Seattle, we made a stop for the night in the quaint Bavarian town of Leavenworth. We enjoyed a little site-seeing and a wonderful German lunch. Nearby, in the town of Cashmere is where the fruity-jelly candy Aplets and Cotlets are made at Liberty Orchards. We had to make a visit to their factory. Of course, we walked away with a few pounds of the jellied candy. Our next destinat...
