Spend three nights and two days in Helena, the capital of Montana. Took a tour train around town, hearing about and seeing the city. Also took a boat trip thru a canyon on the missouri River, that Meriwether Lewis (Lewis & Clark expedition) on July 19, 1805 wrote in his journal "I shall call this place: GATES OF THE MOUNTAINS." A very enjoyable and informative 105 minute boat trip thru a beautiful area of Montana.

Spend five nights in Casper at Fort Caspar RV Park. Note the spelling between the city and the name of the fort. The fort was named after Caspar Collins and was misspelled when papers were turned in to make Casper a city in 1888. In 1936 when the museum was founded they used the correct spelling to name the museum. Visited the Teton Plant, and talked to engineering about a new trailer. I also took the plant tour, Bonnie could not take it because of her broken ankle. Also met with the Teton dealer in Casper about a new trailer. On Friday, before we left town we had an appointment at Kelly's alignment, as we knew we had one tire out of alignment bad (had to put spare on) and two broken shocks. Kelly's thought about 4 or 5 hours when I talked to them about the problems we had. After they looked at it on Friday morning, we found we had to replace 4 of the 6 shocks, had 2 broken springs and all 6 tires were out of alignment. Well we were in at 7:30 AM and got out @ 5 PM, then had 180 miles to get to Cheyenne.
AUGUST 31 thru SEPTEMBER 3 - CHEYENNE, WYOMING
