I did alittle site seeing today to go along with the 538 miles I rode. Mount Rushmore has not changed since I was a kid other then I got there really early in the morning so I could beat the crowds and see some wild life. Those turkeys were just eating right along side the road. Crazy Horse has not been worked on since my last visit other then the welcome center is really nice.

I made it to Billings, Montana and it is really warm out tonight. I am all tucked into the hotel for the night and I am going to go see what the back of my eyelids have to say. I did meet a couple from Denmark who were nice enough to take my picture at crazy horse. They really wanted to know about my ride and why I am doing it. I informed them that the Make-A-Wish Foundation grants wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope,strength and joy. I gave them the foundations web site so they could get involved with it when they get back home. We parted ways but not before they learned how they could help grant a childs wish. This ride has been a challenge but not anything close to the challenges the kids face,so I will keep moving forward just like our kids do.

Thank you for all your support and everyone have a great night.

Keep the chrome side up.
