Well today started at the not even butt crack of dawn! Chip started her little under the breath muffled bark which sometimes is worse than a full on just bark and get it over with bark! Because it goes on for several minutes no matter how much you “beat” her and hold her muzzle or tell her to SHUT UP! Hoping with age this goes away. She gives one or two loud barks then muffles as soon as told to quiet down.
Anyhow that was at 4:30 a.m. Got things quieted and fell back to sleep around 5 only for this to continue off and on. Finally around 6:30 I gave up took a shower and packed to leave. As we were getting out on the highway there was a billboard sign that said “All the Crack you can Handle” OMG seriously that would have been totally taken the wrong of a million different ways had their not been a picture of a lobster LOL.
We passed a town called 1880 town. Kinda cool looking that on the way back we may stop and explore more. Just outside of this and I wish I had seen it before taking off again was this skeleton of a person “walking” a skeleton of a dinosaur on a leash. quiet comical actually. I will get a photo on the return trip the kids got a good laugh out of this.
We learned in South Dakota that they have a road “game” similar to that of MT or especially what comes to mind Pinedale Wyoming of counting…only instead of dead deer it is dead pheasants. WOW are they plenty in the area.
There were many towns that had names that we were use to hearing or seeing more common in other states… such as Houston, Jackson, Montrose etc. So Kelda had lots of fun with the teleport word. How wonderful the car was that was taking us to all these other states yet not a one of them being the one end result state we wanted. It was a good laugh and maybe you had to be there. We learned that SD is VERY foggy and if/when it lifts it favors at first parts of Wyoming. that is when we then saw all the pheasants.
Kelda had fun posting via her cell to FB and here are a few of her updates:
