An Unexpected Trip

Hey, I just wanted to drop in and tell you where I am. We have had to take a much unexpected trip to Montana, to save our belongings that have lived there.

 We left on Tuesday morning and drove all day and night and made it to Mitchell, South Dakota, where we stopped to see the Corn Palace. Then we spent all day Wednesday, driving across South Dakota and Wyoming and then up to Billings, Montana. We finally made it to our destination - Hamilton, Montana around 2:00 on Thursday.

We spent Thursday afternoon and all day today going through our things and trying to decide what to get rid of. I can't believe all the real JUNK that we have collected over the years. I can honestly say, that purging the JUNK you can live without, is quiet relaxing. Yes, I said relaxing. Now, when we get back to Georgia, I won't have to worry about storing JUNK that we don't need.

I did take pictures while driving out and I can't wait to post them. I can't wait to post the pictures from the History Center from Monday. I do have to tell you that we have seen snow on some of the mountains - just beautiful! Hopefully, we will be leaving out tomorrow afternoon. We have to pick up the trailer around 1:00.

I hope you all have had a wonderful week and that you all have a wonderful weekend. I'll see you when I get back home.


  1. I just can't imagine what it would be like out there. I've only been out of the south once in my 30 years. When I did, it wasn't even far out of the south: we went to Dayton, OH for youth camp.

    It is truly amazing at the junk you pick up over the years. We have been talking about having a bigger home for our growing family. When we think about moving all this stuff, the idea of building on is more appealing!

  2. Honestly, it is a totally different world out here. The people are friendly until they know we have moved in the area.

    We laugh every time we get in the car and drive... They can't drive. They need to go to the Atlanta area and learn how with the millions of cars whizzing by.

  3. An impromtu vacation! You just never know what God has up His sleeves! Western Montana is beautiful, eastern Montana goes on forever... And the people are different, but friendly; our family has lots of friends from Montana.
    When we travel away from the NW we miss two things, the mountains and the water. As a combo. There is nothing like driving to the crest of a hill, to find a gorgeous view of the Olympic Mnts with Puget Sound in the foreground. There are certain spots on I-5 that will bring you around a corner for a spectacular view of Mt. Rainier, too. We are blessed to live in such a beautiful place.
