Day 2 and 3
Friday was a bit of a bomb...the weather was atrocious. It just rained and rained and rained. We went to Lynn Valley Suspension bridge, Edgemont Village and Whitespot. Then we napped.
The George Canyon concert was awesome!!! He is an amazing performer. He and the band all joke with each other and get along great. He has such a loud voice and really puts on a show. The crew was joking around, doing Van Halen so he said that would be as silly as him doing ... then he started singing "Baby Baby, Oh Baby" it was hysterical!!! The opening act was Ryan Laird, and he was really good as well (an Ontario boy) (well not really a boy...2 years older than me) There was a really drunk girl that was sitting behind us and she spilled her beer, kept tripping, made a lot of noise, flashed her undies... oh yeah, she also fell on the lady beside me. Her boyfriend was no better and kept giving her more alcohol!!!! He was very noisy and kept shouting out things. All in all it was a great concert.
We were on the road this morning around 9:30, crossed the border with no problems. We were planning to stop at Ellensburg (about a 5 hour drive) but I wanted to keep pushing. We stopped in Everett for lunch and gas then continued on. We saw "Wild Horse Monument" which is a bunch of wild horse statues on the top of a hill. Mom took over driving then (I drove for about 6 hours) then we stopped in Ritsville about an hour/hour and a half. We went out to "Perkins" for dinner.
When we had stopped at lunch they had pie and I had a chocolate one but really wanted peanut butter pie. Guess what Perkins had? That's right...Peanut Butter Pie!!! So we bought a whole pie (it was cheaper than just 2 pieces) so that's lunch tomorrow :)
We are now going to go to the pool, then crash and hopefully be off between 7-8 am in the morning. (I am trying to go fast so when we get to Montana I can spend a while chasing cowboys ;-) I am hoping to go for a ride somewhere along the way as well.
That's about all for now. Stay tuned.
