Great Falls Montana

Great Falls, Montana

Been away so long I hardly knew the place
Gee, it's good to be back home
Leave it till tomorrow to unpack my case
Honey disconnect the phone
I'm back in the USSR
You don't know how lucky you are, boy
Back in the US
Back in the US
Back in the USSR

It’s good to be back home. You can get anything you want in Great Falls.

I left the RV gas cap on a gas pump in Valdez. That's caused the check engine light to be on for the last 3,000 miles. The computer shuts down the emission control system when you lose the gas cap and you can feel the loss of horsepower when the big V-10 is pulling up the mountain grades. Most Ford gas caps have a tether, but the motor home people leave them off.

We went two places and they both said that there were three Ford E-450 gas caps in Denver. We’re having one over-nighted by Fed-Ex.

The tow wiring has been chopped to pieces on the trip. I patched the patches to keep the tow vehicle turn signals and brake lights burning. Here we bought a 25 foot piece of four-wire that should let me build at least four new tow wire connections.

The grocery store selections are wonderful. You don’t realize what an amazing variety we are used to being able to select: fresh Coho salmon, picante sauce, hummus, red peppers, and canned crushed tomatoes.

This is where I bought my broadband card and new laptop last summer. It’s the first real American city we’ve seen since Chicago.

There’s a Tony Roma’s right down the street. The forecast is for heavy Wild Turkey and spicy baby-back ribs.

There is a museum here at Maelstrom AFB, a Lewis and Clark exploration center, a fish hatchery and a lot of dams and falls on River Road. I want to see some summer movies.
