Well, not much has changed in the past few days. Inching our way east, we’re still in the flatlands of Montana. Tuesday the boys rode 70 miles, Wednesday they rode 60 miles, and Thursday they rode 70 miles. Although the land is flat the wind is strong – and not always at their backs; riding nearly 25 miles straight with the wind against them on Wednesday. We had a big milestone on Wednesday, we hit the 1,000-mile mark! Somewhere between Harve and Malta, in the middle of nowhere, but it was uplifting and gave the boys a little extra energy to finish the day. Now just 2,500 miles to go!
Aches and pains are relatively minor for the boys, with no major accidents or any more flat tires. Sandy and Chels have been staying alert behind them by singing Broadway show tunes – you could hear “All That Jazz” playing (and the girls belting) from a mile away! The main event was seeing Wonder Woman on Tuesday night, which was a great break from the grind of the road. Everyone loved the movie, including Bobby!
After two nights in Havre and staying at AmericInn, we moved on to Malta where we spent one night. We were able to speak with the Havre Daily News and take some pictures, and hope to continue speaking with more radio stations and newspapers along the route. After Malta we are doing another two-nighter in Wolf Point as towns are getting few and far in between. The people continue to be friendly, very inquisitive, and supportive of what we are doing. We’ve noticed since the Glaciers, drivers on the road have been courteous and patient as they make wide passes around the bikers. Thank you Montana folks and drivers!
