youtubeHaving small children has brought me so much joy. When we had our second child one year ago we gladly welcomed all the baby snuggles, and adapted again to having a baby often on a hip. But with the fun of a small baby also comes night wakings and nursing. This meant less freedom for mom, me! For quite some time I’d had a two-day long project to work on with a friend who lived over two hours away. Instead of putting it off until my daughter was weaned, we used our trailer to our advantage. My husband, kids and I all headed to Arlington, WA with our RV to let mom get some work done. Bringing our trailer allowed me to come between work to help my husband with the kids and to nurse my daughter.

youtubeWelcome to part three of Montana’s Ghost Town Loop. This 70-mile loop tour in southwest Montana passes through scenic territory with plenty of camping options while visiting ghost towns and mining camps that helped establish the state. You will find it easy to social distance yourself from others and world events as you enjoy this loop. If you missed the last entry you can read it here. This week we will head north on I-15 from our last stop at Farlin turning off at the small settlement of Melrose, Montana then heading west up Trapper Creek exploring the ghosts of Glendale, Hecla, Lion City and what is left of Trapper City.

youtubeHey Happy Campers! I’m sure we’re all sick of hearing the word quarantine, but there’s no doubt about it, the quarantine has put a damper on our “camping life”. The campground or camp area closures, no non-essential traveling, and of course concerned friends and family. With some of that behind us, we were beyond excited to get out with our trailer.

youtubeAre you looking for somewhere to take the family RVing this summer that doesn’t include visitor centers, amusement parks, crowded campgrounds and traffic? How about enjoying a leisurely week exploring historic ghost towns and mining camps where you might not encounter another living soul, disperse camp in your RV along a babbling brook, rock hound for six-sided crystals, be stunned by nature's beauty as you traverse a scenic byway, maybe see a moose or two all while completing a loop around the majestic Pioneer Mountains of the Beaverhead National Forest in southwest Montana? In the day and age of social distancing this is a great option for young and old alike.
