It was VERY foggy, smokey and cold in Drummond Montana this morning.

An early breakfast at Parker’s Family Restaurant was very much appreciated.

Breakfast at Parker’s Family Restaurant in Drummond, MT

I decided to head towards Butte, MT instead of Helena today because the RV Park in Helena did not accept tents, and when I called the city about trees in their campground, they said there were no trees, just a large open area.

Sad and pathetic!

But, once again, a silver lining came up in Deerlodge at the Car and Prison Museum.

Deerlodge Montana Museums

Both museums were GREAT! And I was even allowed to charge my scooter INSIDE while I looked around for almost 4 hours!

Charging Inside the Car Museum

Plus,I entered a drawing for a vintage car (and to support the museum).

This Car is to be Raffled Off. Drawing is December 2, 2022

The drawing is to be held on December 2, 2022 about the time I should be getting to Mexico, if all continues to go well.

I informed my son-in-law, Josh, that if I won the drawing, the car would be his.

The car museum offered some great show pieces, from long ago and from recent years.

Old Chevys on Display

I even found a Ford Falcon which was the First car ever owned by my eldest brother back in the 1960s.

As I gazed at it, I remembered how our cat, Blackey, to my brother’s chagrin, would walk around the flat edges and leave footprints from front to back.

A Not-So-Old Corvette

After a hot breakfast at Parkers. I launched out into the fog and decided to just ride down the interstate instead of trying to deal with more poor GPS directions.

Interstate-90 in this area has a 10-foot wide shoulder and relatively light traffic.

Only some single-lane construction projects on the bridges proved narrow and challenging but all went well.

Hopefully the Butte KOA will have a nice place for the hammock…
