First day ride after Bernie's 3 day hospitalization was a successful one! Bernie did great!!! 11 hours travel time and 470 miles from Great Falls,MT to Gillette,WY. Gusty/Heavy winds slowed us down in Montana. (Jeff Chokreff will remember similar wind...only colder...4 years ago in SD and Wy!) Road construction and 100 degree temp in afternoon also were Challenges. We made a few more stops for hydration and to cool off. Tomorrow our plan is to continue to travel east on I-90 to Sioux Falls, SD...about 500 miles. Total miles at end of Day 25 today is 7,449.
Note:picture is of lunch at Eddie's Corner Cafe-Bar-Motel-Groceries at Junction US 87 & 191...in the heart of Montana! The place was in the middle of nowhere! Beef stew for Bernie and Chili for Eschol at diner counter. Cost of food...$4.95 each.
