We road on the side of the freeway with our flashers on, trying to make it the 14 miles to Wheatland, Wyoming, and hoping that there was a motorcycle shop that could replace his tire.
Tommy DID have the tire we needed so we took it right in and on the rack....
... where Tommy and Joey got to work on it... and we discovered it had not one but 3 big cracks in the tire by the time we got it there.
We praise God for keeping us safe. We got it fixed and were on the road again, headed for Nebraska, on the way to South Dakota.
We made it the 260 miles to Chadron, Nebraska, as intended, even with the unexpected event and some horrible wind.
All the motels in town were full... so we set up our tent at the Eagles Rest RV Park.
We met a fellow full-time RV'er, who helped us out getting our tent strapped down, our air mattress pumped up, and provided us with morning coffee!
Our new friend, Vince. He's been doing the RV life for 12 years.
It was cloudy when we woke up this morning, so we got torn down and packed up as quickly as we could, then left after our coffee. We prepared for hitting rain, but it didnt happen... though the wind was horrific and felt cold while riding.
We made it into South Dakota...
We continued up the Big Foot Memorial Trail, on the way up to Rapid City.
We planned on taking a short break then continuing on to Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse, but as we headed out after our break, we decided we were too tired to tour the area. Fighting the wind really kicks our butt.
So we took I-90 to Sturgis, where we got a very comfortable motel room, and we are here thoroughly enjoying the rest and relaxation. (as if this vacation is difficult and stressful)
CHECK BACK SOON... for a continuation of Bright's 2 Wheel Adventures!
