Day 60 - Independence Day - Coram, MT

Today is not only Independence Day in the U.S. but for us, it's a rest day, i.e. one where we don't have to travel anywhere or see anything. We've had a few other such days but on this particular road trip, they aren't common enough. To me, travelling everyday is not what I want to do as it gets. I noticed this on the Ural road trip as well. Traveling everyday got old. So for the next road trip, schedule more slack days. The picture is our campground at the North American RV Park which is about five miles from West Glacier. This morning, I made up some potato salad for this afternoon's potluck/barbeque. The campground is providing the burgers and hot dogs.

Later - We actually had a great time at the potluck/barbeque visiting with several fellow RVers from Kentucky and California. Another note that may be of interest to a handful of others, I needed to downgrade the firmware on the Ubiquity Nanostation Loco M2 in order to connect to the campground wifi. It seems that Ubiquity removed WEP security as an option and that is what this particular campground is using.


  1. Hmmm, interesting, will have to see if WEP is an option on mine.

    1. Apparently, WEP was removed after v5.5.11 as they figured no one should be still using it.

  2. I have to agree - I've decided to schedule more relax days this time around. Doesn't seem right when you have to come home from a vacation to get some rest.

  3. We had the same experience, Richard. Schedule more downtime next trip.
