G'day Hodgo,
Still lurking, enjoying your trip, keep up the good work.
About this time into a trip like what you're doing, you'll be getting a bit worn out. Remember to have a 'Hodgo day' and do sweet fuck all. Charge the batteries, then go hard!


Where are we again?

The lazy ass wanker has spent the last week trolling around Sturgis looking at all the Harley's probably wishing he had one...

That was when he wasn't gawking at the pendulous titties of which he seems to have a penchant for and like to photograph...



So instead of updating this report to keep the rest of us desk jockeys entertained he has been out looking for trolls....

Or he found a herd of sheep/livestock/waterfowl (I don't think he is picky)....either one is a distinct possibility.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

Hey bloke, I'm still in Eureka Montana, recharging the batteries as you say.

Has been pretty tough water skiing most afternoons. Plus have been stopped here for a bit.

That's because he is just too afraid to come out of the closet....

And the attic has more room for the sheep.



(sorry couldn't let that one pass by without a comment)

Thumb Update 24th August 2013

So to continue the report a bit for those who have been curious what i have been up to.

After leaving Bellview North Dakota, slept in local park, i managed to go through what i think is called the Badlands, turned to to be fairly picture worthy.

Seems like wasteland but not qute desert. Well mayne even a green desert like the grand canyon area except for grass.



I basically headed north from Sturgis till almost the Canadian border, then went west.

The west bit included some nice dirt roads with heaps of oil fields.

But with oil fields along came expensive living as i soon found out in a local grocery store how expensive food was.

For some reason i thought these little pumps were operating under their own power, but the had about 60plus hp electric motor running them

The locals call this the new North Dakota flower. They burn off the gas that comes out of the oil well extraction process


Few more open dirt roads with lots and lots of oil tanker trucks to be mindfull of.


Old mate in the oil tanker truck pulled up to see if i was ok, after i had stopped for a bit to dig out some warmer weather gear. Nice bloke who turned out to be from Eureka MT where i was headed. So i had a quick look in his truck and talked about legal weight limits, road ranger gearboxes & cummins engines.


Further on i found a great spot to stop for a rest.

With great views so you had full 360degree view of Montana.


Almost back onto pabed roads i stopped at a little town for couple of photos.
