Garrison, Montana

We have finally surfaced in Garrison, Mt at the Riverfront RV Park after what seemed like a long hiatus without internet coverage.We had a great experience at Yellowstone and surrounding areas and do have a lot to share with all you fine folks out there in blogger land. We will attempt to post the blogs about Yellowstone in the next several days.  Our trip here today wasn't without some issues and concerns. After Passing the little town of Ennis, Mt, our tire pressure monitoring system started beeping indicating low pressure in one the tires. After pulling over, I found the left front on the truck was rapidly loosing pressure being caused by a leak around the valve stem body. We were fortunate to get stopped before it caused a more serious problem. My buddy Al and I decided to change the tire with the spare and take it back to Ennis to a tire dealer, to be repaired. We had to drop the camper because it was doubtful there would be room to maneuver it and the truck into the tire shop. Crickett and Pat stayed in Al & Pat's rig so as to keep an eye on ours while we got the tire repaired. The tire dealer repaired the tire and mounted it and the spare back in position. We arrived back at our rig about an hour later,  got hooked up and back on the road. Just a little bump in our journey, and not a big deal. Sure was glad to have some help with us. Our next stop is for 2 days at Jim & Mary's campground in Missoula, Mt. for 2 days where we plan to stock up on supplies, meds, and hopefully a hair cut. We plan to meet up with our buddy, Bob Curry while there. We met Bob In Colorado Springs several years and became good friends. Looking forward to seeing you again Bob!  We also plan to go to the National Bison Range while in Missoula. From there we plan to go Glacier National Park for at least 4 days. From what we hear, this area is very scenic and we're looking forward to exploring it.

  2. Glad you got the tire problem taken care of. Looking forward to hearing about your Yellowstone visit. Glacier area is very scenic. Our recommendation for the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier would be to take the red jammer buses (if they still have them) and let them do the driving. We were on that road twice - first time, our friend drove; second time - it was just Gene and I. It's hard to enjoy the scenery and drive too. Gorgeous!!!!!!

    1. Morning Cuz!
      From your experience on the GTTSR, are there many pulloffs where you can stop and enjoy the scenery, or are there none? I would prefer to drive and be able to stop and take pictures. That's what we did on several other scenic roads we've traveled and worked out well. Hope Gene is continuing to improve and get stronger.
