Coast to Coast Trip of a Lifetime

I have started my road trip from Oregon; going east. I will be traveling off the interstate as much as possible. My main destination is a little family reunion in St Paul, MN, a large family reunion near Flint, MI, a reunion with a Navy buddy near Bayonne, NJ and another buddy in Hazard, KY. I just toured the Black Hills Area today. Here are a few pics to get started.
TOO many Buffalo, it is time to harvest some great meat.

The jacked prices for Super



Near the Tetons NP



More and better to follow as the days go on.

Re: Coast to Coast Trip of a Lifetime

Hi everyone
I'm in St Paul, MN visiting family for a rest day and big potluck. I didn't get too many pics crossing SD or MN on 12. The side winds coming at me (1 to 3 o'clock right) were not one hand friendly and needed to do some mile so there was not much stopping. I did stop for lunch at Gettysburg, SD for the BEST homemade salad bar I have ever had. Soup too. Sorry I was so hungry I forgot to take any pics, but they would not had done them justice anyway.
Zippo: I am not cutting thru Indiana. I am going up and over Lake Superior and going over the Mackinaw bridge into MI.
Everyone: Sorry about the pic sizes. I am trying Picasa, because it is so easy to load tons of pics to the net very easily. I try a different way and see if it works any better.
Did not look like much, but the food was GREAT. (farm fresh)

Miles and miles of fields and WIND.
