Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #779 - Havre, Montana - Trip West Day Four

The Big Guy - my Dad - JB's Restaurant - Havre, Montana - 1708.24
Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #779 - Havre, Montana - Trip West Day Four

Hi Mom,

Still traveling. Today was the longest day of the trip.

Up early in Bismarck and on the road by 8:30, which with me needing to work was a bit tricky. Then we headed up to Underwood and got there by 9:30. We were back on the road before 11 a.m. after Dad spent some time in Underwood where his grandfather is buried and where his father was born.

I budgeted this day to be our longest mileage day. To go from Bismarck, ND to Havre, MT through Underwood is 539 miles, which Google estimates will take 8 hrs 48 min. We reached Havre at 6:30 Mountain time, which was for us, from when we started, about 7:30.

Because of stops with the dogs, and even with Dad driving 80 MPH most of the way, it took us 11 hours to make that haul.

Here's where we stayed.

Townhouse Inn Havre - "Haver"
Address: 601 1st St W, Havre, MT 59501

We tried leaving Ellory out of her crate because the night before in Bismarck, we were called and asked to return to the hotel when we were trying to have dinner. When we got back, Ellory was wailing and yipping. So we tried no crate and both dogs were very well behaved and very good when we returned from dinner, which was just across the street at a place the desk clerk did not recommend, but I didn't want to take the time to go to the other place by shuttle as I was worried about Ellory uncrated in the hotel room.

Reflect and connect.

Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

I miss you so very much, Mom.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
