Well, we've made it to Rawlins, WY. Spent last night in North Platte, Nebraska. Haven't focused on doing too much these past two days other than just covering distance and staying in the air conditioned car since its been in the mid-90's both days. We did manage to stop at a couple of antique stores.

Today we embarked on a journey of about 600 miles (965 km), a fairly long haul which would take us into Wyoming and across the continental divide.
The first stop of the morning was Deadwood South Dakota, seat of Lawrence county, the eponymous local of the HBO series, and the final resting place of Wild Bill Hickok.
