After fueling up, Mike checked the air in the tires and found one of the inside rear tires to be totally flat. Fortunately, there was a tire center right around the corner and they fixed what turned out to be a bad valve stem and in about two hours we were on our way to Grandma's house (Mike's Mom's Mom).
We drove alongside beautiful Flathead Lake, with Shelby and Maggie taking a few pictures from the RV.
We went through Missoula, where they filmed the movie "A River Runs Through It" and where they have a big "M" on a hill outside of town...apparently a Montana thing
We arrived in Deer Lodge about 7pm, parked in our campsite at the KOA Kampground after the host (Mo from Hawaii) told us our Uncle and Grandma had come by and called several times looking for us...(he said we must be wanted in seven states.)
Uncle Bill soon arrived and drove us over to Grandma's house and then we all went to their favorite restaurant, Scharf's, for supper.
After supper, we went back to Grandma's house and looked at old family photos, then walked back to the campground.
Later that night we started a campfire at our site which was right on the Clark Fork River, and we talked, relaxed, and listened to the fish jumping...then called it a night.
