Day 5: Minnesota To Montana – Big Sky

A very short one tonight.

Days miles 514.2

Crossed all of North Dakota and now in Montana which is Mountain Time and so, 7 hours behind the UK

One wrong road – which was about 5 miles of gravel.

One section of roadworks on HW5, Montana; 17 miles of gravel and pot holes.

Nearly overtook a Sheriff at a little over the 65mph speed limit on another section but spotted the error of our ways just in time.

Motels all taken by construction workers on expenses – therefore, prices hiked up to stupidity.

BUT, we found a wonderful motel here in Scoby, Montana; a little above budget at $68 but immaculate, comfy and as large as an apartment (2 bedrooms).

Another early start so here are the most pertinent photos

Miles and miles of empty roads – fun!

  1. That’s a lot of miles! Just done 340 miles back from the Lake District, but mine were all,in the pouring rain! Guess looking at the blue sky pictures that made all the difference :))
    Good fun up there though, Wrynose pass, Hardknott and honistor , so great fun.

    1. Know what you mean about the rain – we had it today – well, not so much rain as being up in the clouds; very cold and very damp. But it is still fun doing those winding roads through beautiful scenery – exhilerating. Looking forward to seeing your photos :).

      Ride safe mate – always x
