Traveling on 2 wheels with us old broads…

INTO THE DAKOTAS

Well, another morning with full rain suits.  The sky was nothing but dark clouds and the wind was gusty!  We left Miles City around 8:30 headed for North Dakota.

This was probably the least eventful day of our trip so far.  Aside from being extremely cold and windy, the highlight of our day was when we arrived in Sturgis, SD.  We shopped at the Harley shop until they were ready to close and we needed to find a room.

We’ve heard alot about Deadwood, so that’s where we headed.  No more holiday weekend but you wouldn’t know that by room availability!  After the 2nd motel didn’t have any rooms available we decided to divide and conquer.  Julie and Phil headed down the road and Mary and I got on the phone.  We had already had 6 “nothing available” calls when J&P found us rooms at the Deadwood Gulch Gaming Resort.  It’s not the Blue and White but I bet it will do just fine.

Not sure what our dinner plans are so I’m getting this posted early!  Maybe I can get to bed early tonight.  Tomorrow we are headed for Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse….  then we will begin our southern trek home.  Not ready for that just yet!

Til later……………………………………….

  1. YOU CANNOT LEAVE THAT PART OF THE COUNTRY WITHOUT STOPPING BY “WALL DRUG”!!!!! YOU ARE VERY CLOSE TO IT…JUST OFF I-90 EAST OF RAPID CITY. WE SAW MT. RUSHMORE BUT NOT CRAZY HORSE ON ONE OF OUR TREKS A FEW YEARS AGO THROUGH THAT GENERAL VACINITY. I THINK WE CAME ALL THE WAY ACROSS S. DAKOTA ON THE 90 THEN SOUTH ON I-29 TO THE OMAHA/COUNCIL BLUFFS AREA THEN PICKED UP 80 TO IOWA CITY AND SOUTH FROM THERE TO HERE. IF YOU ARE PICKING YOUR WAY SOUTH AS SOON AS YOU LEAVE MT. RUSHMORE, YOU WILL MISS WALL DRUG!!
    SAFE TRAVELS WHAT EVER ROUTE YOU TAKE.

  2. TRIP SOUNDS LIKE IT IS GOING WELL. LOTS OF STORIES TO TELL AND PICTURES TO SHOW. YOU GUYS BE CAREFUL OUT THERE AND BE SAFE. SOUNDS LIKE THINGS AROUND HERE ARE VERY BORING COMPARED TO YOUR ESCAPADES. KEEP THE BLOGGING COMING…A LOT OF ENJOYMENT READING AND FOLLOWING.

    RIDE SAFE
