Stop # 15 Billings

Hi again.
I'm in Billings. I just wrote the last blog from here. Great ride here this morning. The hills are getting less steep, but the ones I have to climb seem sooooooooo long? I didn't realize this until yesterday but I'm still riding between 3,000 and 4,000 ft. elevation. The area is more dry now but the scenery still has a real beauty to it. I take pictures but I don't think it will look good enough on the blog?? I am going to go get some food next and get ready for the ride to Hardin, MT in the morning. Yep, still in Montana. I did have a guy stop and check on me today. His name was Kirk. My toes were getting numb and so was my rear bumper so I got off the bike for a minute and started walking. Kirk pulled up right away and asked if I needed anything? I was very appreciative he was offering, but I told him I was fine. He told me he was on his way to go ride with some friends. Yeah, they are going to ride 100 miles and do 10,000 ft. of climbing. Ok. No thanks. Have a great ride Kirk, you guys are craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazy.
I'm not sure about being able to blog the next couple of days? Hardin and my next stop Wyona, MT are both on Crow Indian reservations. I am going to take a day off on Thursday and spend the day at The Battle of Little Big Horn. My dad reminded me a week or so ago that my great grandpa was Chereeke and my great grandmother was Choctow. I'm looking forward to it. Take care everyone and a special thanks to all of the people who have helped me out so far! Cya

Glad to hear your ride is going well. I've been riding along with you, "virtually" that is. Here is a link to map showing your stops.

Good luck,
