We took off as planned last night. DH, Huba, and friend in the truck and myself hanging out with Brenda Dayne (ok so it was her podcast) in the car. The total ride to my mom's house took about 8 hours. We traveled 160 miles to the Washington/Idaho Border then 75 miles over 4th of July and Lookout Pass into Montana. From the Montana border we had 16 miles until we hit the half way mark. The half way point is marked by the 10,000 Silver Dollar Store. Which is a mandatory stop at least once on our trip. While driving DH had to swerve to miss 4 geese that were taking their evening stroll and we all waved to Mr. Porquipine as he was making his midnight rounds.
We arrived about 3am Montana time. So that leaves today as a very low key day of catch up. DH will travel to Helena to make his final fishing trip purchase and my mother and I will take 6 kids ranging from 5 to 11 swimming at the local hot springs. I have already did some knitting this morning. My mother is also considering the Baby Surprise Jacket.
I'm on dial up so I will add links to all the posts when I return.
