Customs Go west old man

  1. It won't be left there. The cars will be removed, and all the grain cleaned up. The railroad learned a lesson when one year they tried to bury some grain over by the river on the way to Missoula. The bears dug it up and were causing LOTS of issues. If I remember right, they tried the same thing over by Billings with the same outcome.

  13. Been enjoying your trip. US-2 is a great two lane. Been in the tepee coffee shop in Browning a number of times.

    My parents and I lived in Browning for about a year in 1948. Just down the street was a Catholic church where the priest had a Lionel train layout in the basement. Dad was a constable on the Blackfoot Reservation. We move from there to Cut Bank where Dad was the Chief of Police til we moved to Michigan in '55.

    Sharon and I lived i your destination city of Everett in '67 while I was in the USAF.

    Keep on keepin' on!

    Finally got a good internet connection here is Spokane Wa.

    Lets get this up to date, what the hell day is it anyway? If it's Wednsday this must be Spokane.

    The last picture I posted was the Teepee in Browning Mt. I forgot to post this and now have forgotten where it was taken but know that it was before Glacier park.

    It was an old gas station but is now a credit union office in western Mt.

    [​IMG]

    Sunday we had to stop in Shelby Mt at an urgent care to get some medication for my ear ifection. Got some drops, hope the work. Got to East Glacier Mt. only to find out that the Road to the Sun that crosses the park is closed about 13 miles up the east side. We will have to do that and then go around the park and go up as far as we can on the west side. We did all of that but that took most of the day. The weather was shit on the east side, raining and windy. The west side was better weather but still we missed the higest portion which is where the critters are.

    When R&C did the feature on the chebby I got a call from a guy on Lake Mary Ronan Mt, he is building a 51 olds convert and has a bunch of projects. He invited us to spend the night in one of his cottages. We gladly accepted so here are the pics of the cottage and his projects.

    A 50 olds parts car for his 51 convert which wasn't there. It is in the shop getting the final stuff done. Saw pictures and it is awesome, Black with all of the original chrome, gonne be a sweet ride.

    The next project, a 57 2dr ht. Will get a J2 and an automatic.

    Then it was off to see a hamber, RMR&C who only lives a few miles from
    Gene. He has a shop and does customer work as well as his own. He invited us to stop by with a PM because of this thread.

    Sounds like you're having a great trip! You just drove by my truck which is sitting at a friends shop in Idaho, and I used to live very close to Wayfarer's house before I moved to Portland.

    Best of luck on the rest of your adventure!

    Oh Yeah, I forgot to mention that while we were in that Antique shop in Donners Ferry this guy walks up and introduces himself as Tim who has a shop in the area, we didn't have time to go see the shop but had a nice chat. He is soda pro here and does soda blasting.
