Our day started early..no one can accuse of us of wasting a day in sleeping in..
.this little diner was featured on Diners Drive-ins and Drives..or Triple D..
The food was good..the servings were huge.. and the prices even better..bacon, eggs, hash browns and pancakes for two for less than $20.
After breakfast we had to do some grocery shopping at Wal-Mart..and what do we see in the parking lot?..don’t get me wrong we have nothing against the ‘Wal-Mart overnighters’..
we have done it ourselves..but you can be sure we wouldn’t be setting up camp with our ‘popup’..
The weather is warm and sunny..and since there is a very large lake in our ‘neighbourhood’…
and a road that goes along the lake..
..there has to be a place to take ‘the chosen one’ for a swim..
..not here though..all the access to the water is marked as private property..
the Tuckmeister has added a new body of water to his list…
such enthusiasm he has for swimming…
he can even ‘fly’!!
as were standing on the shore..up on the road..what do we see?..a bird?.. a plane?..no! another orange jeep!!
..and here we thought we were the only crazy ones!
Tucker shook himself off..hopped back in the jeep and we were off again in search of a gas station..in the middle of no where?..we did manage to find one…another 12 miles down the road..this road to no where?…
We decided we weren’t going to go any further but we spotted a sign for a campground?..
there was even some gravel..small amount! but it was gravel?..not exactly “jeep worthy”..
another road to what seems like no-where..
..even ‘Bart’ was getting a bit tired of this adventure, today!
..we did finally find the campground..sure wouldn’t want to forget anything..would be a long drive to the store!!
heading back..we noticed a few dilapidated buildings…imagine the stories if these old houses and barns could talk..
..time for one more swim for Tucker before we headed back to our campsite..
..so as our ‘Triple D’ day comes to an end..Diner, Drive and Dilapidated..
We leave you with one last photo of Tucker ..the ‘flying golden’..or maybe we could call him the ‘flying Walenda?’
tomorrow is travel day..Big Sky Country is our next stop…
