Gillette to Sundance

We had a nice run in the morning, until I got another flat. A couple of drivers stopped to tell Jack that I was fixing a flat. Jack road back so I could use his pump, which is a lot better than mine. The rest of the trip was mostly uphill. We also ran in to a strong headwind for the last couple of hours. By the snow fences along the road, you figure they must get a lot of wind. We checked in about 4PM and strolled the main street. They were having a weekend western celebration, including a western shootout contest. It was loud!! Again, we were able to find a nice local mexican food restaurant. Even had Soppapillas for dessert. Sundance is only about 1000 people, but they had five or six bars, which welcomed bikers from the Sturgis festival.
