Day 7 Dillon MT to Missoula MT

Travel Mileage Today 180
Total Miles 1305
Miles To Go 8016

This morning we woke up to 29 degrees F and broken clouds in the sky. The roads were clear but the surrounding hills and mountains had fresh snow on them. As we proceeded north it was obvious that it was good that we stopped for the night where we did for the snow depth got deeper. Once we got up over the mountains and down into the next valley, the ground was clear of snow.
We arrived at Bretz RV around 1:30 PM and the temperature was 57 degrees F. Bretz is located in Missoula, Montana. We will spend the night here. In the morning we will fill our propane tanks and proceed north to Kalispell Montana where we will put all new tires on the motor home. The present tires are the original ones and are 7 years old. Seven years is the life expectancy of tires. The tires usually need to be replaced due to age rather then wear. Montana has no sales tax so we will save money by purchasing the tires here in Montana.
From Kalispell we will proceed to Marian Montana where we will spend several days with our friends Don and Karen.
