This long haul took 2 days. The 1st day took me through the mountains of Washington, Idaho and Western Montana. Really pretty landscape. Washington has so many different climate zones just in 1 area. My Subaru was doing ok. I had to stop for an hour in Eastern Washington so that I can pour more coolant into the radiator. It doesn’t seem that the Barrs Leaks stuff was working very well. It’s a concern, but it kept cool and going! The sunset of the 3rd was absolutely mesmerizing and really hard to see since I was driving East and it was all behind me. I stopped with a WR friend in Bozeman, and I liked the city and region from what I saw.
The next day on July 4th I drove 970 miles all the way to Minneapolis. I was surprised and stopped at the Theodore Roosevelt National Park in western North Dakota. I seriously had no idea it was along my route, and wish I could have stayed for the 4th of July parade they were soon to be having in the town of Medora, ND. I stopped in Fargo for fuel and food with Georgia friends. It was good to stop for a while and eat some really good food. I finally made my way down to Minneapolis around 1:30 AM and glad to have stopped for a few nights. The front of my car was a graveyard of thousands of bugs from driving at night on the interstate.
