Great Falls to Billings, MT 200 or US 87?

Am completing my workamping position in St. Mary, Montana and will be leaving around September 25th for Texas. I am driving a 30 foot Minnie Winnie. What is the better route from Great Falls to Billings: MT 200 or US 87?

RE: Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier July 2015, Check Me!

I've spent the summer working in St. Mary. What a summer it has been! Your timeframe may prevent you from traveling Going To The Sun Road. It was not fully opened until July 4th. 2013 was much later. Glacier is very peaceful and I will be returning to work the summer of 2015. There are days, even weeks of must sees at Glacier. Do your research on what to visit and do your research on Bear safety! The Going To The Sun Road will take your breath away at every turn!

Glacier Nat'l Park to East Texas via Yellowstone

I've spent the summer working for a private company at the East Gate of Glacier National Park and will be leaving around the 25th of the month traveling to East Texas for a winter position. I would like to travel Beartooth Highway and Top of the World Road in Yellowstone. Am interested in in routes that would take me through other natural scenics. When I came up from the Rio Grande Valley I went through New Mexico, Arizona: Canyon de Chelley, Virgin River Gorge, Wyoming: Grand Tetons and Yellowstone and into Montana for Glacier. THANKS A BUNCH!!!!!

RE: Help with tethering the pups.

I'm with downtheroad. I travel with a 55 lb Catahoula and use a similiar configuration: large nail spikes (14 inches) and a long rope. The distance between spikes will vary on the campground and situation. Baby Girl is never left unattended and this does give her some walking room. On occassion she has taken off after squirrels, etc. and the rope has held. She is in her harness and the leash is attached to a clip on the rope. Has worked very well for me.

Epson versus Canon, pigment based inkjet printers

A while back I posted asking for a recommendation to an upgrade from my Epson 2200 which has performed flawlessly for 11 years, but is now seeing the results of old age and much use! I the original post I wanted to stay with Epson. Based on my information for the upgrade, I am not sure I want to pay the price and am now looking at Canon. My new printer does not need to print any larger than 11X14. In fact 8 1/2X11 would probably suffice. I am most interested in my prints having longevity! I want the printer to be able to handle ink adjustments and printer profiles. If you have experience (good or bad) with a Canon printer let me know. I have used Canon digital cameras for 10 years. THANKS!!!

Any experiece with Millenicom overage?

I may go over my 20G allowance by a gig or two a day or two before the monthly renewal date of the 2nd. Would appreciate any experience with this type of situation. Am interested to know if Millenicom will cut internet access immediately upon going over 20 gigs. THANKS!

Any idea on Millenicom's cut off point?

I've used more data than normal this month and am beginning to closely monitor my usage so as to not exceed the 20 Gigs. Do you have an idea as to what point Millenicom cuts you off for the month?

RE: What to do to correct dog agression to other dogs?

I certainly do appreciate all of the comments! I have experienced and see Baby Girl in many of them. This is the real strength of this forum: a variety of thoughtful opinions. I'll read and re-read and keep this thread informed of what I decide to do. Till then, I will continue to invite responses to responses and new responses.

What to do to correct dog agression to other dogs?

I rescued Baby Girl, a Catahoula Mix, some four years ago. We have worked through some agression issues but the big remainder is her aggression to other dogs; doesn't matter the size. We travel full time and are currently in the Glacier Park area. Baby Girl is fine with people as long as they don't get close to me. At the sight of a dog, whatever size, she bows up and many times goes ballistic. At times, she even turns on me when I attempt to restrain her. Comments, thoughts and suggestions are most appreciated.

RE: What's up with Millenicom?

Millenicom has and is working well at the east gate of Glacier National Park: 30 miles south of the Canadian border.

RE: internet providers

I'm working at St. Mary's Montana (the east gate of Glacier National Park) and AT&T DOES NOT WORK. Verizon does. I have Millenicom and a Net 10 phone that works on Verizon towers and I have been very pleased!

RE: Alabama to Yellowstone

In April of this year I began a trek from Southeast Texas to Montana for a workamping position. Highlights for me are: Taos Pueblo, Four Corners, Canyon De Chelley, Virgin River Gorge (I 15 in Arizona), Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. I originally planned the Grand Canyon on the trip, but because of weather I bypassed and spent 3 days in Kingman, Arizona. Any of the above is a definite revisit for me!

RE: storing 6 rubbermaid tubs of photo albums?

Quality is relative! I'm with Bumby Road! Scanned images are far superior to copies from a camera. Anyone who says otherwise is inexperienced or has clouded information! A lot of technical issues are at play and I'm not going to spend the time explaining! I will say: they are your photos! The decision is yours!

RE: storing 6 rubbermaid tubs of photo albums?

As a retired professional photographer who is proficient with scanning and photoshop, I think you will notice a difference in photos taken with a camera versus scanned. It's all in the lighting, focus, f/stop and shutter speed. A scanner takes all of that out the the equation and is a much better approach. On another note, you've given me an idea. I wonder how much someone would pay to have old photos scanned, enhanced, put on a disc or zip drive? Since I am a fulltimer, this would all be done by mail. Will certainly appreciate all comments. PM me if more comfortable.

RE: Why would a prospective employer want to remain hidden?

HOw can an employer who hides his identity expect a prospect to tailor a cover letter for his specific situation?

An Internet Explorer/Firefox question

I was having some trouble with my computer being slow and not working so one of the things I did was to download Firefox and I really do like it. Seems to have more safeguards than IE. Question: am I doing any potential harm by leaving IE installed? If the best thing to do is delete, what other program could I install to get on the internet if Firefox fails? I am using Windows 8. THANKS!

Best Spyware, Malware Recommendation

I've used the FREE AVG for several years. Wondering if there is a better FREE product out there. I am using Windows 8. THANKS!

RE: Why would a prospective employer want to remain hidden?

I often do recruiting for firms who wish to remain anonymous initially so they do not have to go through 300+ resumes that are deadbeats. I go through the resumes to screen and provide perhaps 5 or 6 candidates to the client AFTER I have checked them out. The rest go in the can. That is not a reason to hide the name of the potential employer. Don't prospective employees have a right to know who they might be working for?
