    Day 6: Red Deer AB to Great Falls MT. 397 miles

    After 2440 miles of Canada, we have finally made it to the lower 48.
    It feels good to be back in the USA.

    Another drizzly day. No spectacular scenery today. Kind of like riding the eastern half of SD. Staying at LaQuinta in Great Falls. Three more days of travel and we will arrive in AR.

    Day 7: Great Falls MT to Sheridan WY. 550 miles

    Another rainy day today. All day long. The scenery all through MT was pretty nice. It felt warm and inviting compared to the stark and forbidding stuff we are used to in AK. In short, it feels good to be home again.

    Going to head out for some supper, check more here, and then go to bed for the night.

    Day 8: Sheridan WY to Sioux City IA. 640 miles

    We had sleet and snow all the way to Spearfish SD. It was sticking on the ground and on objects. The Highway was wet, but not slick. Scenic in Wy but not so throughout SD. No problems to report.

    Tomorrow is the final day....Will be in AR.

    Day 9: Sioux City IA to AR. 743 miles. 4350 total miles.

    Made it safely to AR just as it was getting dark. Our longest day of the trip. Going to take a couple days to unwind.

    Thanks for your support and interest.

    Spyders were packed in the moving van with the household goods. We will see how that works out. PS: I have full coverage from the auto insurers...so am not to concerned.

    Glad you had a successful trip to Arkansas. Get rested up, lots of unpacking to do. Hope you packed the Spyders on the tail end of the truck and not in the front! Thanks for sharing your adventure with us!

    High 70's...78 yesterday. Very humid and different from the AK climate (was in the 40's and 50's the week we left).

    All kinds of tornado warnings in our area since Sunday. We had a warning for our town about 2:00 PM today. Skies looked very threatening, but then calmed down. Wind picking up again.
