Treks Within Reflection – Pausing in the "Here and Now" Adventures


USA | Thursday, 7 June 2012 | Views [363] | Comments [3]

Greetings from Broken Bow, Nebraska!

First of all, I'm trying this approach for adding stories in hopes everyone doesn't have to dig so far to get updates... Sorry if you all had to dig so deep for update #2 ~ we'll give this a try.

Day before yesterday we arrived South Dakota ~ stopped at the Crazy Horse monument, but turned around as they are charging $10 per person just to drive into the center. We stopped at the "bottom of the hill" and I took photos and was content with that. Yesterday we we drove around Custer State Park (have some awesome photos), saw our first herd of buffalo... And then ~ yes! Continued on to Mt. Rushmore ~ I was extremely touched by what I saw so magnificently before me (took LOTS of photos here and will post when we reach Pennsylvania)... WOW! Joined a fascinating guided 30 minute walk with a Ranger/Guide Dude explaining fascinating facts about this monument.

Today we put on around 350 miles (Nebraska surprised me with it's rolling hills!) and Richard is treating us to a motel tonight with a shower, access to wi-fi, electrical outlets to recharge everything (puter, camera, and phone), and we'll continue tomorrow through Nebraska, Kansas, getting closer to Arkansas, and depending, maybe into Arkansas.

Signing off for now and heading to the shower, but will first pause with a gentle Namaste and I'll be in touch at the next wi-fi access!



Gee...from your comments, you could be driving a car.... GoldWings are luxo-cruisers but they are STILL a motorcycle with wind and rain and weather...have you had to stop for weather yet? Got enough layers? Everything packed in the right place now, after 4 days of getting yr system worked out? Met any other motorcycle tourists?
