We motored down the road through the Lewis and Clark National Forest towards I-80, only for a little bit. A couple miles outside of White Sulphur Springs Montana, right where 89 hooks up with 12, we happened across a red Cadillac driven by a mid 50 year-old woman with a red handkerchief waving out her window trying to get our attention. I turned the Harley around to see what her issue was and as I approached her passenger window, she stated that there was a cattle drive on up the road and wanted to warn me of it. Quickly, we realized how big the cattle drive was.
We continued down 89 hwy towards I-80, hopped on the dreaded interstate, and made short of it. We did have to pause for a gas and water stop around Big Timber. Once starting back on the way to Red Lodge, Ronnie noticed his F1/FI light came on and started blinking. We attempted to troubleshoot it on the side of the road, however could not figure it out. Cautiously, we forged ahead, checking in with each other regularly to see if the Goldwing was acting up or not. It appeared to be fine, but the light was concerning to Ronnie. We then took off the interstate on 78 Hwy near Columbus Montana and rode to Roscoe. The advice, from my boss at my regular work, advised us to eat at the Grizzly Bar and Grill for a hamburger lunch. He was not wrong – it was great!

I was taking photos inside the Snow Creek Saloon due to its eclectic look and a lady walked up to me and asked me about my attraction to the establishment. I said I really liked the place and she offered that it was for sale. How did she know that? She was the listing agent for the place. It’s only a cool $850,000 offering – pocket change, right? I quickly started rolling ideas of owning a bar through my head, with Kathy shaking her head from side to side, knowing what I was thinking. It was quite humorous, but man, what an opportunity for someone that has the desire to live in a ski town.
