Today was a pseudo rest day, but I wasn’t in the mood for rest. I was in the mood for kickin’ some ass. I was feeling frisky and wanted to haul ass!

To be honest, I don’t remember much went on this day. Looking at my average speed (over 20 mph), I could tell that I had a good day. More than likely, I was back to riding with Chip and Jim. As you can see from the map, there ain’t dick between Ashland and Broadus so there was no real reason to stop. I do remember seeing some funky looking hills and the region being pretty arid. It was cooler today too, which was a welcome change from the heat we experienced over the last several days.

Stayed at a rinky-dink K-12 school in Broadus. I don’t know why I remember this, but I remember that there were NO TOILET PARTITIONS in the bathrooms. At this point, we’re pretty much all “family” and if you’ve gotta take a dump, you gotta take a dump. It’s just kind of weird sitting on the john with another guy taking a shit on the toilet right next to you.

One thing I was looking forward to was getting out of Montana. Don’t get me wrong. Montana was my favorite state on my trip. It was more of a feeling along the lines of chalking up another state as “DONE”. I was starting to feel a little homesick and was especially missing my girlfriend, Laura. Being that we’d be heading into a fairly large town tomorrow, I figured I’d try and do something special for her.

You mean Stockholder? He's been coming after me for a while since LadyCop doesn't post often anymore. He thinks I'm a brown noser because I'm successful at my job.
