    in my head i've been thinking about going to jellystone for years

    & it's been on robins bucket list, she loves the animals

    so this year is gonna be the year

    as always i reached out to the inmates for advice on what to see and not see

    both in regionals and jo momma


    https://advrider.com/f/threads/hey-...tell-me-about-jellystone-yellowstone.1425674/


    https://advrider.com/f/threads/jellystone-questions.1425676/


    as always they came tru

    this was in january everyone said you have to book ahead or you won't get in a room in the time of year we were planning to go

    so i started

    booked rooms, sat up rental in bozeman mt



    then covid hit

    i hoped it would be over by now and stayed on path

    bourght plane tickets still hoping for the best

    then roits a crazy year

    yellowstone was closed

    then reopened bottom part of the park so things are looking up

    then i find out eagle rider had closed their store in bozeman and said i could pick up bike in missuola, reschudule for next year or cancel

    we went back and forth, they were a little hard to get hold of at times

    flight times were being moved back and forth

    long story short i switched my fiight to missoula and left hers in bozeman, we both had to take another day off work because of moving flights


    she shipped our gear on the 9th with u s postal service they said should be there in 4 days to a week

    we were going on the 21st so perfect


    the night before i tossed and turned couldn't sleep

    clock went off at 2:30AM I rolled out she was already up and showered we hit the road

    into the ATL


    [​IMG]



    by 6am i was wheels up

    "go west young man go west"

    her flight left around 8

    touch down for next flight

    i flew out of salt lake at 10:55 she landed at salt lake at 10:55

    mts are calling

    [​IMG]


    touch down in missuola my phone said hd shop was .9 miles

    2 emts hanging out told me 2 miles & pointed in 2 different directions:loco , checked my phone it said 1.4 miles :confused


    i looked at uber app, and started walking cut across a small runway

    then a access road

    i asked about my gear, the service guy looked every where

    then had a gal look

    then another gal looked, i told em i'd been talking to larry

    larry introduced him self and he hadn't seen it

    called robin she didn't have tracking #s

    it was over 2 weeks ago shit should have been there by now

    larry loaned me a helmet and i rode over to the post office

    a gal with the sides of her head shaved and the mohawk part in black, yellow and purple ( it looked better than it sounds :lol3)

    said there was nothing she could do, no idea where our packages might be

    robins checking with someone she deals with at the post office for work


    back to grizzly harley davidson i got robin a helmet

    they said mail hadn't came yet

    rode around alitte then


    i rode over to a pizza place they recommended

    a flight and a pizza might help


    [​IMG]

    did get to see my first bear in monatana

    [​IMG]
