View Full Version : who are the 3 Montana's behind us?

We are in Washington state and there are 3 Montana's sitting in the row behind us. One has a Montana sticker on the back. Have not been able to catch them to see who they could be.

one might be rlwhit who is on his way to 7 feathers for the rally on Friday. One might be Mel n Joy if they are coming down from WA instead of Yuma. Maybe they all decided to caravan down together

I found this evening that only one of them are MOC members. The one with the MOC sticker is the only one that is MOC. Haven't talked to them yet. They have been gone all day and still are not home.
Not sure but think the MOC member has CA plates. Will have to look again tomorrow.

The suspense is killing me....who are they?!

.....knock on the door....leave a note.....get the Moc member number! LOL!

We will be gone most of tomorrow but will try to leave a note before we leave or maybe we can talk to them when walking the dogs in the morning. :)

They were gone when we got up the next day, Thursday morning. They must have left early. So I never got to leave a note. Will never know who.. We are sure it was a CA license plate and no MOC number on anything but had a small "montana owners sticker on back bumper of Montana. The guy next door to him is not a MOC member but said he is thinking of becoming a member because the CA man had talked to him.

Dustytuu, are/were you in the Spokane KOA down by Barker Rd.?

06-05-2009, 08:09 AM
Yes! We were parked in next row behind you (if that was you). In the Carriage 5th wheel. The 2nd Montana from you.... is right behind us.
We are the one coming in, that the park had to trim some branches before we could get parked in our site.

Well, that was me, we're currently in Missoula, Mt. My MOC sticker on the rear has my four digit MOC membership number on it. The California Monte to my left was a retired guy and his wife who are there awaiting a surgery date for his wife's back. I talked with him when we arrived and told him about the MOC web site and he seemed very interested. The 3400 on his left looked to me like a full-timer but I never saw any human activity around the rig in the two days we were there. Sorry we misssed the chance to meet formally. I must hacve flicked my headlights at ten Montana's from Spokane to Missoula without a response so there's quite a few out there that need to "hear the message" Good travels to you.

Yes I wish we could have met you all. I talked briefly to the man that was next to you. He also told me he was probably going to join the MOC.

We went through Mussoula coming here. Leaving here next Wednesday down through Oregon, Idaho, Utah and stopping in Wyo. for a week.
Beautiful country coming here! Some big mountains coming through Idaho on I-90. Look like Colorado through there.

If you get back to the Seattle/Bellevue area in the future.......give us a yoo hoo. We have 50 Amps and a sewer dump in our back yard, we're dog people as well.

Thank you very much! We might do that someday in the future. Maybe next year.
Have not seen Seattle Washington yet.

How did you like Spokane?? I moved to Iowa from Spokane back in October 2007...truly miss the Pac Northwest.

06-07-2009, 11:14 AM
We have not seen a lot of Spokane yet. Have an aunt and cousin here. Other cousins are in Oregon, CA and Idaho.
It is a nice city. We are in the valley.

A little worried about the overpasses on 90 west around Spokane. They look low and one of the people here told me, is one 13.5 inches high on 90. That would be close for us! We want to go south into eastern Oregon and then Utah. Could you suggest a route that woudn't take the top off our 5th wheel? We are over 13 feet high.

As long as you stay on I-90 going west, you are clear all the way to Seattle. My coach measures in at 13'3" high and I have not had any issues heading west or south on 395 out of Ritzville/Tri-cities into Oregon.

Wow, Dusty, you are about 5 blocks from my son's house on Barker Road. I was just visiting him a few days ago for my grandson's graduation. If I had known you were so close I would have driven down to the KOA.

06-20-2009, 09:21 AM
Oh darn! Wish we had known.
We are in Cheyenne now. Leaving here Monday. A few Montana's in here too.

Thanks for the road hints. We didn't have any trouble but those low over passes really make me nervous!
Montana Sky We took I-90 west to 395 south. Went through tip of Oregon and Utah.
Did I-84 to I-80 to Cheyenne.

Sounds like things are going well for you and your new coach. Travel safe and travel well my friends.

06-20-2009, 07:26 PM
Dustytuu, sorry we missed you. We live in Liberty Lake just east of Barker Rd. KOA. Let us know when you get back this way. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

06-27-2009, 02:11 PM
Yes wish we had met all of you!

Yes enjoying our new coach but now it is almost 2 years old. Will be 2 in November. Have been from Minn. to Washington state this year. Looking forward to chilling out in AZ again for 5 months this winter.
We have been full timing for almost a year now! Love this life.... Life is good! :)
