Actually we are meandering because we made a wrong turn and added 70 miles to our trip today.   We blinked and missed a turn, and decided to just go on and in a round about way get back on track.   Unfortunately, the track had lots of graded roads, all gravel, for miles and miles.  Actually we haven’t been on any worse roads in Alaska.   But we got to Great Falls around 2:30 pm so all is well.

We are at Dicks RV Park, which is really the jump off campground for those traveling into Canada.  It’s a zoo here today.  There is a 25 rig caravan traveling to Alaska.  Plus the campground is full of folks like us.  No telling how many are going to Alaska.

Just so happens the couple who checked in after us parked next to us, and they are going to Alaska for the first time.  They are from Louisiana.   So I put on my schoolteacher hat and got to work explaining things to them.  They didn’t do much research so they are winging it.

We all stay in Great Falls because we are 100 miles from the Canadian border.  It’s not a good idea to wait late in the day to cross so we should get to the border before noon.   We will drive another 100 miles or so to the Daisy May campground in Fort MacLeod, Alberta, Canada.  We’ll also have to stop somewhere and get our Canadian currency before we get farther up the road.

The only photo today is at our lunch spot of the day, somewhere lost in Montana.
