Well, Jim decided this morning today was the day we’d start south with the first load. We’ve got the trailer house and Frank pulling the header trailer. We had to make our first stop on this journey back in Jordan. We needed to finish loading Frank with the rest of Jim’s miscellaneous summer necessities and settle up with our farmer. We left Denton about 3:30 this afternoon. And, by the looks of the clouds in my rearview mirror – it was the perfect time! Those were some nasty looking dark clouds that followed us all the way to Jordan. They decided to take a turn towards the northeastern corner of Montana and missed Jordan all together.
We opted for a room at the Garfield Motel rather than hooking the trailer up to electricity and water for the night. The Garfield Motel is an experience! It’s an updated OLD motel. The rooms are quaint and clean. The owners have done a fabulous job of making you feel like you’ve stepped back in time with all the luxuries of today. If you’re ever in Jordan, make sure to plan at least one evening here. Then, go to the cafe on the south end of town – The Hilltop – owned by Rose Edwards for breakfast!
Not sure what the next couple of nights will be for service. So, I may have several days to catch up on when we get home. Home….sounds so weird!
