300 Miles to Minot

We spent three days in Great Falls. It has about 45,000 people. It was the largest city in Montana until being overtaken a few years ago by Missoula. Malmstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls controls a large number of Minuteman III ICBM missiles that are spread over an area the size of West Virginia. The 341st Missile Wing is on the Job 24/7.

We saw the Montana Air National Guard flying F-15s out of the Great Falls airport. They were flying in tight formation in groups of four...very pretty...and unusual...The F-15 is approaching 40 years of age.

We pulled into Glasgow, Montana about 300 miles east of Great Falls and the big slide room failed. One side would go in and out and the other side was frozen. You can't go anywhere with a slide sticking out three feet.

I crawled under and found a broken bolt causing the problem. We found an ACE Hardware and bought a bolt for $.37 that fixed the problem. On the way in the morning...It's 300 miles to Minot, North Dakata. There is a lot of wheat around here.
