Visiting Minnesota and Iowa

Lake Superior North Shore Scenic Drive, MN
Wow! We've picked up the pace and have visited many places in these past couple of weeks! After the Corps of Engineer park near Minot, ND, we moved further east to Grand Forks AFB and stayed in their nice FamCamp (Family Campground). This is a quiet campground located in a back portion of the base. It's the kind of place we enjoy staying at. During our 3-day stay here, we visited the Ronald Reagan...

Great post! Do you find that you need to make reservations well in advance? How do you choose your next stop?

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 lea...

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...
