The Great Adventure 2011 Wyoming and Montana– 7/25/11

We left early this morning and headed towards Kalispell, MT. On the way out of the park we saw elk and buffalo. One buffalo was walking right down the yellow line towards our car! When we saw the elk, we saw a baby elk run out in front of a car and narrowly was missed. We drove 400 miles to Kalispell and got there around 3:30pm. We decided to get our oil changed since we have driven about 5200 miles since the oil change right before we left home. Surprisingly, the Toyota dealership was cheaper than any of the hourly oil change places. After the oil change, we went to Wal-Mart to refill some of Don’s prescriptions and buy some supplies. Since there was a Subway shop there too, we grabbed a couple of subs for dinner. We ate our dinner at the hotel while we did laundry. We feel like we accomplished a lot today and will be ready for a fresh start in the morning. Hopefully the weather will be nice and we will drive on the Going to the Sun road through Glacier NP.

What I Learned Today:

· Early morning is the best time to spot wildlife.

· It pays to call around and price oil changes. I would never have thought that the dealership would be the cheapest.

· It wasn’t hard to transfer prescriptions to the Wal-Mart as I expected.

· I take my own washer and dryer for granted when I’m hope and I really appreciate them when I have to do laundry when traveling.
