After we got all our stuff packed up, we headed back to the ranch to swap vehicles. As we were pulling up, Gerald was moving some gravel with his Unimog. Perhaps Gerald sensed Ryan’s soul aching to give it a try, because he offered for Ryan to take it for a spin. (Just in case you’re wondering, never heard of a Unimog before this visit in my life…) While the guys were out playing, Sharla and I were chatting and she started describing her husband to me. After she finished, I just started chuckling because it sounded like she was describing Ryan. No wonder those two got along so great.
Just a few minutes later we packed up the bike and said our goodbyes. We were both sad to leave South Dakota after that visit. It was definitely the best part of the trip thus far.
Honestly, the rest of the day was not too eventful. We rode from Wall, SD to Riverton, WY. It was a long haul, but hey, sleep is sweet after a day like that.
