The past four weeks have been full of family visits. We left Montrose and drove to Castle Rock CO. via I-70 with its high passes (over 11,000 feet). While in Castle Rock we visited Julie’s cousin Diana, as well as spending a little time touring the area.

After 4 days in Castle Rock we moved north to Cheyenne, WY, spending a few days there touring the local area. One highlight of the visit was finding a Cajun restaurant in Laramie WY about 35 miles west of Cheyenne. Tommy Jack’s had excellent gumbo as well as oyster and shrimp po-boys. We enjoyed our lunch and will return again one day.

We next moved to Custer SD to spend a wonderful afternoon with Julie’s cousin Roberta who lives in Edgewood. We moved from there to Bismarck ND with an over night stop in northern SD to rest up.

Bismarck is the home town of a number of our relatives so we spent 10 days there visiting Frank’s mother, brothers from both sides as well as niece’s, nephews, and cousins. We both originated from Bismarck but have not lived there for 40 plus years.

From Bismarck we moved to Aberdeen SD for another family reunion. Julie’s cousins from her mother’s side had a reunion at Wiley Park in Aberdeen. There was lots of food, stories as well as a trip to the bumper boats and go-carts. We spent Sunday recovering from the fun filled weekend before moving to Fargo ND to visit one of Frank’s brothers and his family.

Wednesday we moved to Grand Forks Air Base to resupply at the Commissary and Exchange. Then today we moved to Bemidji MN where we will spend a week getting back into our normal routine, which has been destroyed over the past month. Our normal routine is to move about 300 miles once a week and spend the days touring the surrounding area, thereby seeing all of the country a little at a time.

Bemidji-that place rings a bell. Right on US 2 which we quite often travel. We stayed down the road just east of there in Cass Lake, MN.
