The converted school house just creeped me out. The pics on the before post maybe look all right from the inside but the outside of the building is falling apart.
I’m laying in bed about sundown and the ceiling above me in my room came alive with some kind of pretty good size critters as I could hear them moving lumber around up there. And the occasional animal noise. Pretty sure they were just large rats. Raccoons usually make a growling sound. A few shouts to let them know that I paid money to stay here and they were not part of the fee. The whole building actually smelled of old farmhouse that had been abandoned for years. Mice, rat, urine smell.
I could not get up early enough of course. Did not sleep a wink.
On the road by 6:00 am heading for Forsyth, MT. 42 miles down the road. The road is good, no shoulder to speak of. The white line was the shoulder. And made it to Forsyth about 10:30 am. No wind until the last 10 miles.
Checked into the Restwel Motel and took a short nap. Rest of the day was spent chatting with Michelle and running down some food. Here are a few pics of this short trip.
I have a couple of tough days ahead of me. No easy trip to Miles City tomorrow. Lots of hills and the last 20 miles will be spent on the interstate as the frontage road ends. And then on Saturday is the biggie of the trip so far for me. Miles City to Baker, MT. 80 miles of nothing. I did find out today that the highway dept did put in a Rest Stop about halfway. Running water and restrooms. But still the road to get to the rest stop is very hilly. I hope I can do this.
