I signed up for too many concerts this September weekend. Leon Bridges, Shovel & Rope, The Head and The Heart and Avett Brothers. I forgot to mention that the last 3 were at The Gorge Amphitheater. This is the second time Ive been here and its just as amazing the second time around.
Ill keep this one short, Im home!
So, I woke up this morning and my car battery was dead. Started checking out garages in the are which there arent many in the Badland Interior. Luckily, I also had a jump start kit that was gifted to me last Christmas. I hooked it up to my battery, jumped the car and was on the road again.
Getting on the road at 5am has its benefits. The Badlands were empty except for some wildlife wandering around. It was so peaceful I didnt want to keep driving thru. Fortunately, I had a day booked of great locations so I was quickly on my way. Next stop was Mount Rushmoore, then Crazy Horse with the last stop being Teton National Park and Jackson.
Whoa daisy, this was a leg of the road trip to remember. My hood popped up, twice. I got it fixed at a small town off 90 by a guy named Jim. He has 2 garages, on opposite sides of the street, in a town that was empty. Jim fixed my car for $15, I game him a $20 and said keep the change.
Made it to the Badlands which is 3 hours past where I was originally going to sleep. All the hotels were closed and the camping didnt allow dogs. Lindy and I slept in my car that night.
