May 13, 2013 - Little Bighorn

Purchase gas ($57) before heading out at 9:00am to Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument in Garryowen, MT. It's beautiful on the hill, you can see for miles; the attackers didn't stand a chance. Purchased gas in Billings, MI ($92). It's HOT! The RV floorboards are hot; so hot the skin on the soles of my feet peeled. The engine sits between driver and passenger, it's hot. The air conditioner is not working properly. Even the vent does not work right. The passenger just gets hot blowing air no matter what. What a day to have record...

On Sept.10th we took a drive up Hwy 191 just to see what we could see. First we drove to the small town of Harlowton, now there isn't a whole lot to see there, but they do have a Veterans Memorial. We decided to stop & see the Natural Bridge Falls, located in the Gallatin National Forest(SR 298). The bridge was a small natural limestone formation & spanned the Main Boulder River. It collapsed in 1988.

Jul 6, 2007 - Day 12, Harlowton, MT

Today was our second official Century and what a ride it turned out to be. High temps, winds and hills! Besides being a long day we encountered 5 miles of major road construction. The road was loose gravel and rock - four of the big riders fell trying to traverse the construction site. Thankfully no injuries to any riders. We now rate each days ride based on wind direction (head winds being the worst), road surface, grade of climb and then the distance. Today's ride was a long hill ride with a head wind making for a long day! We departed...
