I was up at 5 AM and got the coach ready for travel. After I said my goodbye to Larry, I drove around the corner and filled the fuel tank.

It was a glorious morning - clear skies, light breeze turning into a tailwind, smooth highways and light traffic. I headed north to intercept I90 West at Laurel, MT (west of Billings). The winds picked up and were still pretty much a tailwind until Bozeman, MT. Then they became headwinds ~ 25 mph.

All the mountain ranges that I passed along or through were covered with a new coat of snow from yesterday's storm. They are so beautiful! I have posted some photos to illustrate that. All the rivers, creeks and irrigation canals along the way were flowing fast and nearly at the top of their banks. I'm sure this will continue as the snow melts.

I arrived at my intended RV park in Anaconda, MT (15 miles west of Butte) at 1:30 PM. I registered and got the coach parked and set up for the overnight stay.

Socks and I then headed for the Butte, MT airport. Ann's flight was due in at 2:36 PM but actually arrived early at 2:10 PM. Ann was at the curb when she called me. I was at the I90 off ramp to the airport. We came back to the coach and got her unpacked and settled in.

We've just finished "dinner," and are settling in for the night. We plan to leave tomorrow morning for Kamiah, ID and the SKP Get Together event. Forecast calls for isolated thundershowers and 15 - 20 mph head winds. I am experiencing an isolated shower right now over the RV Park. The sun is shinning and rain is falling. Go figure. It is now 64 F with overnight forecast of 40 - 45 F. I put flannel sheets on my bed last night. The heater works fine so we won't freeze.
