Continuing Westward

I’m currently safely stashed in a hotel in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, but I did want to share a few things:
1) Keeping a car warm in -7 F weather with strong winds hurts gas mileage painfully.
2) Driving through white-out conditions and then realizing that it’s actually all just snow picked up off the ground, and the stars and moon are out above you is hi-larious. Maybe you just have to be there.

My next post is my 400th… I’m hoping to make it a bit more substantial than the past few posts. We’ll see how worn out I am when I stop tomorrow (aiming to be somewhere in western Montana by then, weather permitting).
