Stop #13 Harlowton, MT

I made it to Harlowton yesterday. I actually had one of my best rides so far. There were still ups and downs but they are getting smaller. I was also able to ride at 23-24 mph for a couple of hours at the end of the ride. I feel I am getting stronger and I am well rested. Last night I was suppose to stay at the Church. It started pouring so a neighbor named Robert came over and asked me if I wanted to stay at the Old Milwaukee R.R. Depot? It is this cool old station that they are in the process of restoring. Robert is a super cool guy and I really enjoyed his conversations and company. He once walked from Lavina, MT to New York. Lavina is my next stop by the way?? Thanks Robert. I also met a guy named Don. He lives across from the old station and is a retired railroad guy. He shared lots of stories about the station, the town, and some of his persona stuff. Very interesting guy.
Anyone wondering about JRP? I'll share that story on Tuesday.
B. The answer was bungy cords. If you ever need a bungy cord just drive along side these highways and you can find tons of them. Is there a resale value for bungy cords?????
My friend Robert just made me a great pancake breakfast. Thanks for the food and for letting me use your computer. Oh, by the way, he's a writer. He wrote a book called Baby Doctor Old Soul Returns to Earth by Dr. Bob. I have not read it yet but if you want more info here is his site. rockymountainastrologer.com On to Lavina, then Billings.
