Happy 50th Birthday Mandy!! Looking forward to coming to see you in Devon?
We took ages getting ready to leave because Steve had put the van up for sale on "Craig's List" last night at about 11pm. We were anxious to see what response we were having before we left. We had a lot of interest so we got quite excited and had to email everyone back to let them know our intentions.
We then "Skyped" Julie and Mike ( my parents) in the UK and had the best connection we have ever had - even from our home in NZ! So we chatted to them for a while. I think they were glad to hear from us as we had not been in contact with anyone for days
Finally we left and set off towards Helena, Montana. Our intention was to get to a dentist by Monday morning or maybe Tuesday.
We picked up some LPG and gas and then continued on towards Helena.
We stopped about 35 miles short of Helena in an amazing place on a lake called Canyon Ferry Lake. The campsite is run by the "Bureau of Land Reclamation" and it only cost $8 a night. There are only long drop toilets and no other facilities but we were able to park right by the water and swim to our hearts content. As it was Sunday everyone else was leaving and so we were able to park where we wanted.
