Mt Sunflower Trip Report Posted & North Central Trip Concluded

In State Highpoints by Robert Danger Byrd / August 30, 2015 / 0 Comments

We are currently guiding our earthship towards Houston and will dock this evening concluding our 4 state highpoint north central trip. It was the longest trip we have taken in the coach, and except for a few minor mechanical challenges all went smoothly.

It was a fun trip, and we experienced some parts of America that few people see, and created many new memories.

On August 17th, 2015 I stood on White Butte the highest point in North Dakota. It was #1 of the 4 state highpoints of our 2015 North Central Trip and was the northern most highpoint of that trip. It was #30 out of the 50 states for me.

Back at trailhead & my waiting Jeep.

It was a nice hike & more beautiful than expected. The rainstorm sunrise was perfect & coyotes were a pleasant surprise.

Highpointing Cows

Still dark & I’m following what appears to be a cow path. I can’t imagine what interest bovine would have in state highpoints, but its heading in the right direction.

Trouble Finding Trailhead

In State Highpoints by Delorme InReach / August 17, 2015 / 0 Comments

After fumbling about following Google maps through some pastures, I found the tractor road to the trailhead and drove jeep as far as possible.

No trail signs, but GPS says I’m close so I’m just going to head in that direction on foot.

North Central Trip Begins Now!

In State Highpoints,Travel by Robert Danger Byrd / August 11, 2015 / 2 Comments

By the time you read this, Susan and I will be on the road driving clear across the country all the way to North Dakota. Good Lord willing, we will complete the highest points in Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota & South Dakota where we will spend some extra time visiting Mt Rushmore and other local interesting places of which there are many. My old friend and Rick Overholt and his girlfriend Kathy Glynn will fly into South Dakota and join us for South Dakota. Rick enjoyed it so much the first time, he wanted to climb it again.

We will be traveling in our 1999 motor coach we call “BigByrd” and have been remodeling since we bought it in 2012 and its now ready for prime time. We have taken a number of trips already in it, but this will be the longest one yet.
