Beautiful weather here in Billings today, with temps in the high 60’s and a lot of sun. But since it’s supposed to be in the low 40’s tonight, I plugged my engine’s block heater once again for a toasty engine tomorrow morning.

We’ve stayed here a number of the times over the years and you can’t ask for a nicer park.

There’s even parking for two vehicles if you need it.

For breakfast this morning we had our Wheat Montana treats from yesterday’s visit.

She got a Chocolate Croissant while I got an Almond Bearclaw. Both really good. Too bad we didn’t buy more.

Jan spend an hour or so at one of the two nearby park laundries doing our heavy floor rugs, the only thing she doesn’t normally do in our rig’s Splendide Washer/Dryer combo.

About 4pm we headed out to have dinner at our other favorite Billings’ eatery, HuHot Mongolian Grill.

Like the Genghis Grill, HuHot gives you an empty bowl and you go down a cafeteria-type line filling your bowl up with all the meats, veggies, and sauces you want.

Then you give it to the grill guy who tosses it on a big circular grill and cooks it up for you while you watch.

And what starts out like this,

ends up like this.

One thing kind of funny was the grill guy’s reaction when he tossed my bowl on the grill. I had loaded it up with all of the really hot and spicy sauces, so when the steamy vapors hit in the face, he jerked back saying :”WOW”. When he looked over at me, I just smiled.

As we were leaving HuHot I saw this really nice 1937 V-8 Ford in the parking lot.

I really like those taillights, but I don’t think they’re original equipment. Note the gas cap in the nearest one.

Then it was off to the nearby Sam’s Club to pick up a prescription for me and a case of Joint Juice for Jan. We also scouted out the gas station to get some diesel tomorrow morning before we leave town.

Besides being close by and an easy in and out, at $2.37/gallon, it’s the cheapest in the area by about $.20 a gallon.

Later, coming home from Sam’s we passed another bunch of old cars.

Don’t know why they’re stored there, but they run the gambit of really old to fairly new.

One of our blog readers noticed the helper springs on our wiper arms in the photo of Karma sleeping on the dash yesterday..

I found these at a truck stop a few years ago, but you can get the same ones here on Amazon.


They work great to keep the blades firmly against the glass, and even better, here on Amazon they’re half the price of the truck stop ones. Check ‘em out..

Looking at our route to Rapid City tomorrow, I noticed that if I take US 212 past the Custer Battlefield, it makes a 50 mile shorter route around to connect back up with I-90 right above Sturgis, turning our 363 mile trip into only 313 miles. I checked in with my friend Nick Russell who has driven it before and he said it’s a nice drive.

So off we go.
