As you guys know I'm unemployed. I was bored a week and a half ago so I got in my car and I drove west. Mostly Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota.

The roads are amazing out there, I wished I had my bike with me but my car is very fun in the twisties. Plus, out west the speed limit is 75mph… all those small routes are 70mph with tons of mountains and very, very twisty and some are very dangerous roads.

Here are some teaser photos…

But there is 140 pictures from my trip on this website:

This by far was my favorite road on this trip...RT89 in Montana, running from the Canadian border to east of Glacier National Park, over an hour and a half of BLISS. I drove that road 3 times it was SO GOOD!

It's all 40-20mph turns.

I did. The ones of me are done with self-photo mode mostly, or some other tourists that looked like they wanted to take pictures. I also hiked with other people, so the trail pictures were taken by people. The self-photo mode you can tell cause the camera is resting on something and the picture is usually crooked. :D

Kruz,
#1 - my bike is not in the greatest shape right now... going in for an estimate tomorrow
#2 - I need new tires, ordering some today
#3 - I'm unemployed so I have very little $$$, my cage was also my bed for the night... I can't sleep on my bike :rolleyes
#4 - I got the car in January and I had 3,000 miles on it before the trip (8,000 now) I have 7,000 on the bike which I got in April... I took the cage so I can even it out a bit

Nice pictures, Anna. I don't believe you went through and added descriptions for all 140 of them or whatever. Btw, I remember seeing some of that stuff when I went to Yellowstone and, uhm, surrounding areas, etc.--Mt. Rushmore, Devil's Mountain, the hot springs, of course--all very nice.

I dunno, I've been in the RSX-S before and the seats are real comfortable, and I think the front passenger area is pretty roomy.

Thanks.... love the car, it's the closest thing to a bike. Actually it's a great car to sleep in, it's just like a tent, but it's made out of metal :D

Anyway, it's a hatch back and the back seats flip down. So you put your feet in the hatch back area and you lay across behind the front seats... I lay a blanket down and then a sleeping bag and pillow. It's very comfortable, plus I can sleep anywhere… and free is the cheapest way to go.
