IT AIN’T OVER YET

September 12, 2009

The adventure continues…  we left El Reno this morning after a severe rainstorm last night.  It wasn’t raining as we left but it was sure threatening.  Back in the rain gear again.  Our last dealership stop was in Oklahoma City.  We didn’t spend a lot of time there but it was a pretty impressive dealership.  […]

TOTO, WE AREN’T IN KANSAS ANYMORE..

September 11, 2009

Leaving Garden City, Kansas this morning was “soupy” – to say the least.  Fog was so thick that we could barely see a block in front of us.  It was so dense that we pulled over only a couple of miles after we left the motel to put on rain gear.  The heavy fog was […]

IT’S OFFICIAL…

September 10, 2009

To all my Iowa friends… we have crossed Nebraska and most of Kansas and it’s official…  I believe we have seen more corn here than we did in Iowa.  I would have never figured that to be possible. We trudged across the sand hills of Nebraska and the Kansas plains.  There won’t be any new […]

NO RAIN!!!

September 9, 2009

It was a fantastic day!!  First of all, no rain!  Temperatures were moderate and the sights were great. Our first sightseeing stop was at the Crazy Horse Memorial.  Those of you that have been there know what I am talking about.  Those of you that haven’t – you have got to go!  So much history.  […]

INTO THE DAKOTAS

September 8, 2009

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 […]

GLACIER AND BEYOND…

September 7, 2009

Once again, Glacier National Park was not in our original travel plans.  After talking with folks about where we were headed, too many of you told us to be sure and make it to Glacier.  And all of you that told us that were not wrong… at all.  Road to the Sun Highway!  The drive was […]

THE BLUE AND WHITE MOTEL

September 7, 2009

Let’s just say that when Mary opened the door to our room – she stepped back out and asked Julianne if her room looked “strange”.   Now I’m not exactly sure how many rooms were at this motel, or if they were all decorated with such flair and originality!  Mary had backed out of our room […]

WHEW!!!

September 7, 2009

If yesterday was long, then today was even longer.  We are in Great Falls, MT.  I’m telling you this early on in case I fall asleep before this is finished. About yeserday…  we left West Yellowstone on a very crisp morning.  Our route to Kalispell was riddled with challenges.  Two different roads we were supposed […]

KALISPELL, MT

September 5, 2009

Just so you all know… and no one gets worried…  we are settled into the Blue and White Motel (and that’s a whole other story, complete with pics) in Kalispell, Montana.  This is on the west edge of Glaceier National Park.  We rode a long day hampered by winds and rain.  Almost didn’t find a […]

WY, ID, WY, MT

September 4, 2009

I’ll say it again.. we stayed in the neatest motel last night.  I’d ride back up here just to stay there.  Well, I’d probably ride back up here and not stay there either!! It was pretty chilly when we left this morning.  We headed for Jackson Hole but decided to take the scenic route.  Leaving […]
