The camp site is C-141 at Fish creek campground in Glacier National Park(GNP). I reserved the space for July 9 and leaving July 12.They allow 2 vehicles (Leroy and I will be sharing campsites ) and 8 people to a site.
Leroy and I both have a tent on a trailer. His is a commercial tent/trailer and I made my own.

Leaving Marengo Ohio (20 miles north of Columbus Oh) July 5th. I will take st. rt.229 west for 15 miles and head north on US 23 for 35 miles. Turn west on U S 30 for 100 miles up by Chicago, North of Minneapolis and west to GNP.

It is 1,926 miles from Marengo to GNP. And 2,540 miles from GNP to Coldfoot, Alaska.

Fargo to Glendive Mt 389 miles 7/7
