Blast from the Past Trip To Wisconsin

Dale and I are feeling really blessed by our warm and wonderful fall weather this year.  We were able to take a two day tour into Wisconsin October 20th and 21st.  Some years we have seen snow by then so the 70 degree days were awesome!  We drove to the Milwaukee area and parked the […]

2017 Summer Trip – Final Thoughts

Renee has done a great job of documenting our entire trip and I wanted to add some details from my perspective.

Day 12

Day 12 was a slog.  We drove from East Glacier to Rapid City, SD, about 700 miles.  Not the most exciting of days, although we did start breaking some of the straps holding the motorcycle down, so that added a little drama.  Dale was quick to fix the problem though so we could continue on. […]

Days 10.5 and 11

The drive from Libby to East Glacier was very scenic and enjoyable, and we pulled into our motel around dinner time.  After checking into a very quaint mom and pop motel where pop was a bit overwhelmed and befuddled, we headed downtown to find some food.  We were surprised, in such a little tiny place, […]

Day 10 & 10.5

Day 10…the journey home began, but we were so excited because we knew it held lots of fun rides and more adventures for us!  So we left Seattle at about 5:00 AM knowing we had a very long day of driving ahead of us…all the way to Libby, MT.  We had chosen not to go […]

Day 8 & 9…Our Destination, Seattle

I know I am way behind on blogging about the trip.  It just became too hard to keep up after long days of riding/driving.  So, now we are home and I am catching up.  We got to Seattle on a Friday evening and went to our son and future daughter-in-law’s house. They had recently purchased […]
