Day 47 - Missoula, MT

Another travel day that was, thankfully, shorter than yesterday. Only 253 miles. This was helped by transitioning from PDT to MDT when we crossed the Montana border. This was just taken at a rest area shortly after we crossed into Idaho. We did run into snow as we went through Lookout Pass at the Idaho-Montana border. The temperature dropped down to 41° but the roads looked kinda slick.

Tonight, we are “lot docking” at the Cracker Barrel in Missoula, MT. Of course this means dinner out today and, for me, dinner at Cracker Barrel is a good thing. They only have three RV/bus parking slots but the manager told us to park anywhere out back. They have a large parking lot so that really wasn’t a problem. Since we are parked on a slight downhill, the trailer ended up nice and level.

Even with all the overcast skies, rain and hail, the batteries are fully charged and the graph shows that we peaked at 34 amps. Not too shabby.  


  1. Cracker Barrel - Yum! I guess I didn't know they did overnight parking. Convenient!

    1. I think many, but not all, of the Cracker Barrel’s allow RV parking. There is an app called AllStays that have info on which ones allow it.

  2. Cracker Barrel, I lot-docked in one, found it nice and the food is good.
