Where is Ida’s Hoe?

Well, that’s where we are!  Post Falls, Idaho.   We are on the way to the Black Hills area of South Dakota and Mount Rushmore.  We left at 8:50 this morning and after 381.1 miles, 2 fuel stops, 3 rest area stops, and only 2 light rain showers, here we are 7 hours and 50 minutes later.  It was a fairly uneventful trip (so far).

When we left home, the sky was cloudy and we hit two or three light rain showers.  Once we were through the Gorge, it was scattered clouds and bright sunlight with temps mostly in the high 70s.  There was some periods of wind, but nothing that slowed us down.

The price of gas here is 34 cents cheaper than just down the road 2 miles across the border back into Washington.  Must be the highway taxes.

Tomorrow we head for Deer Lodge, MT, a distance of about 255.583 miles, give or take a few feet.  We are trying to time the trip so that we are there by 4pm MDT so we can watch Special Report on Fox News Channel and see, what, if anything, the Supremes did on Obama care and the Arizona Immigration case.

Sorry I don’t have any pics for today.  Carol frowns on me taking pictures while cruising down the highway at 65mph for some reason.  And I am too tired now to go outside.  I had a semi-pro football game to officiate last night and am still somewhat tired from that.  So if you want pics, be sure to visit Carol’s blog at Carol Ks Journey
