While riding west from New Castle Wyoming we ride over fifty mikes and see only one shade tree, it is out in the middle of nowhere. We pull over and park under it, just to chill. A rabbit is hanging out under the tree with us. An antelope looks on 200 feet away. Our conversations are focused, the topic is loose. I like to talk scenarios, Heidi loves to play along. Dream, plan, change plans, change dreams, it is a constant thing we do now, everyday.
Tooling toward Casper Wyoming Heidi sees some rain way ahead. She comes up with a new signal for rain. It does not look good and we are going to ride right into it. We pull over near some cool rock formations to evaluate the situation. Eyeing a high rock, we observe the direction the clouds are moving. The rain is moving away. A 15 minutes break sounds good, we are warm and dry and happy. Back on the road we run into just a little wet road surface and a few sprinkles. That was a good move to wait. We are developing and honing good touring skills early on in the ride, this is good..
