Aug 31, 2018 - 7th Ranch RV Park, Little Bighorn

2018-08-30. Computer Woes Perhaps you were wondering why I had not written or posted in awhile. Well, it’s hard to do that when you have dropped water on your laptop and, even after turning it off and unplugging it and letting it dry for several days, the curser continued to jump all over the page opening programs willy-nilly. This is the first time that has happened to me but…lesson learned. I’m writing using Bob’s laptop but don’t want to put photos on his computer except as a last resort as I am a I-photo/Mac user and his PC computer...

Aug 20, 2017 - Garryowen, MT

This was the day for the eclipse. We had about 96% viewing. All of us were surprised how much light remained but it did get noticeably cooler. We had clear skies and it was pretty amazing. The afternoon was spent at the Little Bighorn Battlefield. We did it all. We took a tour, listened to the park ranger talk, and watched the movie. It truly is sacred ground for both the Indians and the White Men. We finished the day by eating wonderful Indian flatbread tacos and watching a beautiful sunset.

Jun 2, 2017 - Garryowen MT - 7th Ranch RV Park

Departed Ellsworth AFB after a great time riding and visiting with Jeremy, Jeni, and her kids Paxton and Gabby on our way to the site of the Little Big Horn! The scenery is getting more breathtaking as we continue to the northwest.....especially for a Florida boy. We were a little concerned when we arrived at the rv park as the road in was gravel and pretty washboard, but the the rv park was excellent with great views and only 1 exit from the battlefield. We took time to hike around the the campground and went up a small hill for better...

Sep 16, 2016 - Custer's Last Stand- Battle of the Bighorn

We had a very educational day on our side trip up to Montana to visit the Battle of the Bighorn. It is also a national cemetery. Very beautiful countryside. Amazing to learn that not many Indians died here...only militia. For every Indian killed, 840 rounds of ammunition were used!! Our military has come a long way!!

Sep 13, 2016 - Garryowen, MT - 7th Ranch RV Camp

Our trip from Livingston to Garryowen, MT was 186 miles of rain and dreary skies. We came through what would have been beautiful country if it hadn't been raining the entire trip. The trip itself was uneventful along an easy I-90 all the way. We are staying at the 7th Ranch RV Camp which is a large park about four miles SE of Garryowen, MT. Even though it is on a hill, they have tried to level the sites and they almost succeeded in the one given us! We have a 50 amp full hookup pull-through that is a little wider than usual out here. The...

Aug 7, 2015 - Hardin and Indian Fry Bread

We took the day off, Andy and Jo did too. We did drive into Hardin to check out the big town - the historical museum looked comprehensive but we didn't go through it. The downtown is made up of old storefronts and we went into the hardware store, the second hand store, and bought HUGE cinnamon roll and cheese pastry at the Mennonite bakery. They were really good. We went to dinner at the restaurant across from the battlefield located at the site of Sitting Bull's headquarters during the battle. We should have tried the Indian Taco and...

2015 Eagle trip

Aug 6, 2015 - Battle of Little Bighorn

Today we went to the battleground of the Little Bighorn where Custer took his last stand. Very good. The park ranger gave a 30 minute talk and pointed out the locations in front of us where the troops and the indians were throughout the battle. We then walked to the top of the hill to see the monument to the soldiers who died and the markers on the spots where they lay. There is a circle monument to the American Indians who fought as well that is very moving. Then we drove the 5 mile loop through the battlefield and stopped at a couple of...

2015 Eagle trip

Aug 5, 2015 - Garryowen MT

Yesterday we took it easy - went to the base Library and Commissary. Ray cleaned the Eagle. Rain was predicted but we only saw clouds and the day was cooler because of them. We did see the B1's take off to fly over Sturgis and later in the afternoon they did some touch and goes. Nice to hear and see. We drove on scenic (curvy and hilly) Hwy 212 to Garryowen, this is called the Warrier Trail because of the number of battles fought by the American Indians as they were being forced onto reservations and off their historical lands. As we left...

2015 Eagle trip

Jun 24, 2015 - Little Bighorn Battlefield

We had a full day AGAIN. At 9 a.m. we left Sheridan for a stop at the Little Bighorn Battlefield in Montana. Our ultimate destination for the day was Billings, Montana. We arrived at the battlefield about 10:15 a.m. and were shocked to see the parking lots packed with cars and RV's. We were advised to park our motorhome down the hill at the huge parking areas next to the casino which we did. While messing around in the crowded spaces near the visitor's center, we heard a very funny sound. Note - whenever you hear a strange sound that...

Jun 14, 2015 - Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument

The trips are getting shorter - at least the last few days. Today, we pulled the rig about 115 miles to Garryowen, Montana. This town is located about six miles from the site of Custer's Last Stand, Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. It was on this site on June 25th and 26th of 1876 that Lt. George Armstrong Custer and 263 soldiers and other personnel of the US Army's 7th Cavalry died in a battle with several thousand Lakota and Cheyenne warriors. We walked around the battlefield and saw many white markers that signified that a...

Where RV Now?

Oct 1, 2014 - Little Bighorn Battlefield, MT

We arrived in Garryowen, Montana yesterday following a rainy drive from Cody WY. Scott hooked up the RV services and then washed the mud from the Fiesta as Little Bear sat on the grass nearby. We are at 7th Ranch, a working horse/cattle ranch and RV park. The owner brought his Schipperke, Pete, to meet Little Bear. Pete and Bear ignored each other (Schipperke protocol) and Pete ran into a nearby field, ignoring his owner's calls to return (again, Schipperke protocol). Yesterday afternoon we drove to the Custer Battlefield Museum just down...
