Glacier National Park, Kalispell Montana, and a Flat Tire

After spending the amount of time I did in Montana, I’m starting to think that Montana is the only secret America has ever kept. Even if that wasn’t my working theory before I got to Glacier, it definitely was afterwards. The best part of that theory is that most of the people in Montana that …

Huge Dog Runs, Great Food, BJJ, and Hiking in Montana

Hands down, Bozeman, Montana is my favorite place that I’ve visited thus far. The food was excellent and there were too many good restaurants to even try. There was great hikes in every direction around the town. Other than seeing driveway stakes with 8 foot high poles attached to them everywhere ominously reminding everyone of …

Rimrocks, Custer’s Last Stand, and The Beartooth Pass

Billings was a great place to eat and hang out. But there wasn’t much to do there. I met some interesting people and had some good conversations over drinks. But if it wasn’t for the history and the food, I wouldn’t spend much more time in Billings.

Tongue Canyon, Big Horns, and Towers of Bad Gods

On my way through Wyoming, I stopped in a few towns a little off the beaten path. The first of such places was Sundance, Wyoming. I spent the night drinking and watching UFC fights with some wild land fire fighters. They made a few great recommendations about where to go in Wyoming and Montana. They …

Toadstools, Kill Sites, and Dumb Luck Encounters

I swung through northwestern Nebraska because I really wanted to see the Toadstools. I only spent a day in Nebraska, which isn’t enough time to really see or do much. But as with nearly everywhere else, there was still some cool stuff to see and interesting people to talk to. The best part of the …

The Good, the Bad, the Rapid, and Really High Rocks

For never having heard of Rapid City, South Dakota before, it delivered an unexpectedly great time. There is construction all over the place and the city is clearly on the rise. Not only is there is a lot to do in the city, but the amount of great stuff within a relatively short driving distance …

Trains, Missouri River, and the Northern Badlands

There is a lot of evolutionary and geological history in North Dakota. That’s in addition to the beautiful scenery that exists all over the state. And apparently there is a timezone change right in the middle of North Dakota. Which leaves some people in a situation where they commute 5 minutes to work and then …

Waterfalls, Red Rocks, Beer, and Sheep

While it might not be surprising that a place called Sioux Falls has actual water falls in the downtown area, it’s still pretty cool that there are actually water falls in the downtown area. Since I was in an actual city, I also made sure to look around for some good food and got some sparring …

SPAM, Mall of America, and Bluffs in Minnesota

There was a lot of cool stuff to do in Minnesota and I only really scratched the surface. Spending a holiday weekend there meant a lot of places were packed and I had to adjust my travel plans a little. There was still a lot of random cool stuff in Minnesota like the SPAM museum …

Rocks Above and Below, Deja Vu, and Mustard

Even though I’ve already been to Madison, Wisconsin, I figured I would use the time to eat at a few more places. Because hey, who doesn’t like food tours? It ended up being a weird deja vu. The rest of the day was a lot less already seen stuff. We spent some of it deep …
