My first extended road trip is only a couple days away, and I'm as excited as a kid on Christmas Eve! I'll be leaving Friday afternoon, 7/6. I have a stop planned in Rapid City to get a new rear tire since I'll be close to 17K on the original tire by the time the trip is done. I figure it's better to replace it 400 miles into the trip than to push my luck. I'm picking up the better half at the Great Falls, MT airport On 7/8, and we are heading into Canada (Alberta and BC), then back down into Montana and across Going to the Sun Road. The wife was not interested in a 10 day trip and chose the 4 day "fly and ride" option, lol. It's ok with me as I get plenty of solo time and she gets to see the best scenery of the trip. We are only doing 200-300 miles a day for her portion of the trip and I think she will do fine with that. Tentative plans for my trip back home include the Beartooth Highway and a stop in Cody, WY. I will try to post some updates and photos along the way as time permits!
