Big Timber, Montana


Edward Bear had a false start yesterday. He thought that the camper was all loaded and ready to go on an adventure, but instead it went to several different repair shops in town and then came back home where Ted went to work repairing the wiring in the main junction box at the front of the camper. Then it was another short trip around town to make sure that everything was working. Finally the trailer was parked next to the garage where it stayed all night long.

This morning, however, things began to get going. There were several trips to the camper to get things to make breakfast and then, not long after breakfast, everything was loaded up and they hit the road. There were short stops in Belle Fourche, Broadus, Little Big Horn Battlefield, and a Rest Stop. The Mister E boat was on the truck and it had to be inspected twice.

With the early start, they were at the Boulder by about 3 in the afternoon after having traveled 400 miles. It was a good trip, with no problems.

Edward loves exploring the Boulder, stopping to smell the flowers, listening the the river, and looking at the Crazy Mountains.

This summer will be full of adventures and one of the biggest ones is that Edward is moving away from South Dakota. The place that has been his home all of his life is now going to be his former home. He is headed for a new life in Washington. He has very good friends there. Elliot, Emmala and Eliza are all waiting for Edward to come. This will be an exciting time!
