Awesome report and pictures, thanks for sharing. My husband and I are setting off for a multi-state adventure in a few weeks - it's our first one! So it was really nice to read your report and to see what your experiences were on the road. Looking forward to the next installment!

Sounds great, enjoy your trip. Hopefully get the next trip report on line starting next week. Weather has been too nice for sitting in at the computer ha ha

It is kind of a unique place and like all unique places has its own interesting history

Wife's first bike trip

Denise
I have enjoyed your telling of your first bike trip. I told my wife about you and your trip for two reasons. One she has talked a bit about getting her license for a bike and two, here name is Denise, LOL
She enjoys riding on the back of my GSA but every once in a while she talks about her own bike. We are a few years older that you guys (55) but enjoy our time on the bike.
I have done that trip with a male friend, the route was a bit different because I live in London On.
I am familiar with your home town, we have cousins in Red lake so I have been to or through Dryden many times.
Thanks again
Paul

Getting your beginners is pretty easy. Just a written test then you can drive just about anywhere (except 400 series etc) Minimal investment and if she finds it is not what she wants to pursue then no big loss.

You are not that far off. Garth is 58 this month and Denise is 51. Nothing like driving your own bike is there? Always a passenger until you get your own motorcycle!

Yes it was not fun.
If you want to go west you have to cross the Great Plains and typically it means wind. 5 trips and that has proven true every time. Tolerate or trailer I suppose.

Thanks for posting. I recognize many places on your route. The hot springs at Thermopolis are great(free)....I had to smile when you said you were pulling into Williston at 6:30, good luck getting a parking spot never mind a room! that place is nuts. Looking forward to part 2......

Thanks, putting it together while it snows out sure makes me wish for summer to go on a bit longer.

Time to start planning trip 3.
