Today we traveled from Rapid City, South Dakota to Casper, WY.
About a 5 hour drive with a stop at Mount Rushmore.
Just a little different than our last time here. . .
Overall, another good day in the car. Luke slept most of the way from Mount Rushmore to Casper and we were able to make that 4 1/2 hour trip in one shot.
Some yummy car snacks. . .
The only downside to our day was when we got to Casper. I had it in mind all day long to go for a nice hour long run when we got into town. I had planned to do some treadmill miles and catch up on some Netflix Instant play watching – currently loving Heart of Dixie! – but the “workout center” only had one horrible treadmill. It was old, clunky, and the belt didn’t move smoothly. No go. I tried the elliptical, but again, not a good machine. So, I tried not to be deterred, leashed up Abby for a run outside. Although, it ended up being colder than I thought and I didn’t have any hat or mittens, so, I knew we weren’t going to make it very far with a chilly wind and 27 degree weather. But, Abby wasn’t interested in any of it and refused to go any farther than 0.25 miles down the road. So, we walked around the hotel for about a mile and I called it quits! Looking forward to a good long run tomorrow when we reach our final destination in Jackson, WY. . .
After a long, hot shower. . . we hit up Famous Dave’s for dinner – one of Scott’s favorites.
And then back to the hotel for bed. Traveling is hard work! I think Abby would really like it if we had a king bed at home. . . more than enough room for me, Scott and still room for her to hog the middle of the bed. . .
5 1/2 hour drive to Jackson tomorrow, where we will meet up with some friends to hang out with for a few days!
