Casper, WY to Lusk, WY

"I'm back in the saddle again."---Gene Autrey

I'm a few days behind in posting. It's getting harder to keep up with the blog and get rest, etc.
This is what I wrote in my journal: Another century-plus today. We rode 100 miles of it in 5:41:00 with our average speed 17.7mph. I don't really pay much attention to times and speeds but that, for sure, is a personal record. We had a good tail wind much of the way. (Thank you Wind Gods.) I didn't get a photo, but I was surprised that in the town of Douglas (in between Casper and Lusk) they had the imaginary creature, the jackalope, decorating their main bridge---punched out of the metal guard rails. I always thought it was just kind of a camp joke, like a snipe hunt. They, also, had one as tall as a man on the way out of town. I think they must have a great sense of humor.

Tomorrow we leave Wyoming. The last couple of rides have been tough because there is not much here to see. Lots of prairie and lots of "whole lotta nuthin'."

This is what it looked like for 106 miles.

I wish I could take this bear home for Alice.
She would love this on her porch. (Hi Alice! :)

Do you remember the tv show from the 70's called Hee-Haw?
Whenever Mike and I see signs like this we say, "Sa-lute!"

Our motel in Lusk. After 106 miles a very welcome sight.

Thanks for stopping by.
