We left this morning from our hotel in Idaho Falls. One of the weird things on a journey like this is that you often don't arrive at your hotel for the night until very late, so it isn't until the morning that you step outside and discover something amazing right in front of you, that couldn't see at night. Such was the case in Idaho Falls.
So, we got the trailer loaded up and hopped in the Jeep to leave, and when I turned the key... nothing. Dead battery- woo hoo! The security leader was kind enough to give us a jump. After determining that the battery was in fact old and bad, we opted to do the smart thing and replace it immediately (even though we were all STARVING). It's Walmart to the rescue, with the requisite minimum of three trips inside (one for a ratchet extension, one for the battery, and one for a new terminal to replace the one that broke when I was putting in the new battery). At that point it was well after 10 P.M., and we discovered that there aren't many 24 hour restaurants around here. We ended up at a place called Old Chicago pizza, where I'm writing this. Pizza is one of my main food groups, and this place would definitely earn my highest recommendation. Check them out if you're in Bozeman!
We've been provided with a place to stay for the night, courtesy of my good friend Scott. In the morning we have a long drive ahead of us to get to Story, Wyoming by 3 PM. After the show, we'll have another decent drive to get all the way to Alliance, Nebraska, because the next day, we're doing a mini "teaser" of our show at 11 A.M. to bring folks in for the big show in the evening.
5 states down, 45 to go!
