Day 47!

The last few days have definitely not been the high points of the trip.  Today we biked 63 miles west through the Montana plains.  Road was busy with trucks, narrow, with no usable shoulder for a significant portion.  Winds were 15-20 mph in our face for all of the ride.  Gusts blew bikes around so that trying to stay in a narrow shoulder was virtually impossible.  Everyone made it, but there were some really scary moments.  Tomorrow winds are 10 mph stronger than today, so we will see.  Tomorrow night we are in Cut Bank, which is the threshold of Glacier National Park, so after we get there things should look considerably brighter.

Total mileage so far is about 3300 miles, give or take.  A little less than 1000 miles to go…
