Push on through or call for a ride? There will be times when we don’t have an option but today we do. We are cold and wet. Can’t feel our toes even with toe warmers. Have cell service. In an easy place to find us. Red and white striped old abandoned house by the freeway exit. We can look for better equipment in Miles City. As we talked about what to do I knew what my mother would tell me to do. We made the call. Disappointed in myself because I had to give up. A little embarrassed, but that never killed anybody. But know it was a good decision. Dave, Pat and Daniel arrived with a big white van to bring us into town. Now we are again warm and dry while our wet clothes are hanging up and in front of heaters. Grateful to Pat for giving us a warm dry place to sleep tonight. Forecast for the next few days is 70 to 80 and sunny. Back to worrying about sunburn instead.
PS We got to see Dave again (right) today when our hosts (Pat on the left) met his family at Wendy’s for lunch. Thanks again to our rescuers!
