On Monday, March 22, 1999, we set out at about 6:30pm from Spokane, WA to NY.  Our trip took us through Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. We had beautiful, sunny weather for five straight days...how often does that happen, huh? The only clouds we hit were in Chicago. Our first destination was Butte, Montana. We made it there by midnight. We almost didn't make it though....about an hour into the drive, through Lookout Pass (a series of trecherous switchbacks through the Rockies), we came around a corner and hit a piece of concrete in the road. I thought for sure we would have a blow-out, but nothing happened. Thank God for Bev's Honda Passport!!

Rapid City, SD to Gilette, WY

Rapid City, United States


We set off from there on Tuesday morning, for Rapid City, South Dakota. That took us a day of driving, but we made it. Rapid City is a pretty nice town, and we plan on going back there one day for a mini vacation. Let me tell you, Montana and Wyoming...were boring! I think we counted about 12 cars or so in over 500 Miles of driving. Though it was nice that Montana had no posted Speed limit...we were cruising around 85 or 90 mph. We stopped for a rest in a town called Gillette, Wyoming. The most unfriendliest, nastiest people we'd met.. And, believe it or not, we hit major traffic!! What an aweful place! We couldn't wait to get out of there!
