The Western was a good find since there were not a lot of options. We just needed a place to sleep. Met our basic needs for $84.99 for 2 double beds. ~A

Today was another long day of driving, but I can honestly say that, until the last hour or so, it was a really great one. When we woke up this morning, I was surprised at how ready I felt. I think I was just super excited to get to Yellowstone. The idea of being in one place for three whole nights was very appealing. Before we really got on the road, I stopped at DJ's Auto Body shop for an oil change. We were in this tiny town of South Dakota and this man could not have ...
Another long day as we drive 500 miles through Montana to the Wyoming border at Little Big Horn. Pretty drive and a lot hillier than I thought it would be. We are now at Little Bighorn and tomorrow morning we will go to the Little Bighorn Museum to see all about the famous battle. Montana roads are real nice and mostly red in color.

These pictures aren't all great since they were taken though the windshield with rain all over them, ...

However, about three-quarters of the way up, my Goldwing started to run really rough and had almost no power. I thought maybe I was lugging it too much, so I shifted down a gear. But about 100 ft later it started to really bog down and just about died. Coincidently, right where I was having trouble is where a small road construction project was going on so we had to come to a stand still anyways. As soon as I pulled the clutch ...
... surprisingly, one of two wild turkeys, just after they had successfully crossed the highway directly in front of us. It was a bit tricky pulling Shorty off on the shoulder of the two-lane highway, but well worth it for Lynnie. She's been calling turkeys ever since we left Javelina country. I feel badly that we never did see any Javelinas in the wild. All of Lynnie's calling was for naught. Perhaps next year... ya jus' nevah know.
