    Old Oregon Trail.

    Some nights is just me and the birds.

    Baltimore must burn, they are trying too hard to enjoy life in their cubicles.

    Found Old Emigrant Gap once. It is wonderful to have such a view in this lifetime. None of that cut grass in suburbs...

    I’d take 90 to Sioux Falls then 29 down to 80 east to Chicago. Jethro’s BBQ outside of Des Moines is a good stop and there’s a casino with plenty of truck parking across the street. Just not at all a fan of Minnesota or Wisconsin. And I’d take SD over ND

    He's about 100 feet away.

    All the tourists were at the overlook looking at the canyon. Missed the buffalo walking right behind them.

    No matter where you are in the country.

    Dirt. Asphalt. It's all the same scenery.

    Me too. I love running across SD. Fast, no traffic, good stops, did I mention no traffic?

    Nobody on the road the week except a million bikers around Sturgis.


    I disagree. The east is way too busy, mostly road construction.
