Where’s MonkeyMe? Day 8

13263942_10209514786887905_6463748829985017234_nMonkeyMe and his friends left Cody, WY and headed to Chief Joseph Highway.  I’ve heard that it is a wonderful road to ride.  They wanted to ride Bear Tooth Pass as well, but it was closed due to snow.  So they headed to Yellowstone.  They rode through Yellowstone and Grand Tetons down to Jackson Hole where they rented a cabin for the night.

They were very glad to be in the cabin after a long day of cold, wind, rain, sleet & hail.  Also, some snow here and there.  (you can see snow on this car) 13237713_10209514787327916_4827275977258055725_n

 

It was pretty much a miserable day to be on a motorcycle.  But, they made it safely and that is all that matters.

Hopefully, the weather will improve for the rest of their adventure.  Stayed tuned to see what’s next.

Where’s MonkeyMe? Day 7

FullSizeRender (6)MonkeyMe and his friends decided to have an easy, laid-back sort of day.  They toured the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, WY.  MonkeyMe liked seeing all of the relics of the Old West from days gone by.  IMG_1126

He particularly liked the Cody Firearms Museum, which is a part of the Buffalo Bill Center.

IMG_1127After spending most of the day at the museum, they spent some much needed “down” time doing some laundry.  After 7 days on the road, they had a lot of dirty clothes to wash.

They plan to hit the road again after a good night’s sleep though.  So check back to see where their adventure takes them.

Where’s MonkeyMe? Day 6

IMG_1107MonkeyMe and friends started the day by going to Deadwood, SD which is in the Black Hills.  MonkeyMe hitched a ride, again, as they headed to the saloon where Wild Bill was shot and killed in 1876.

IMG_1110Unfortunately, the saloon was closed, but that didn’t stop MonkeyMe from hanging out there.  They spent a little time walking around in Deadwood then went to Sturgis, SD.

IMG_1115In Sturgis, they visited the Motorcycle Museum.  MonkeyMe liked seeing all of the old motorcycles.  However, he decided he liked the motorcycle he is riding on the best.

IMG_1119It is much more comfortable.

IMG_1120Once they left Sturgis, they headed west toward Cody, WY.  They rode through some beautiful snow-capped mountains along the way.  But, unfortunately, they got in to some more rain and some hail.  MonkeyMe didn’t like the hail at all.  He was glad when they reached Cody and got a room for the night.  He was ready for the rest and relaxation.

Check back tomorrow for more MonkeyMe Adventures.

Where’s MonkeyMe? Day 5

IMG_1060Another beautiful day of site seeing in South Dakota!

MonkeyMe and friends visited the Crazy Horse Monument.  Of course, it isn’t completed yet, so the next time they go there, perhaps it will look a little different.  Never-the-less, it is interesting to see the progress of the work.  IMG_1059

From there they went to Custer State Park.  They rode all thru it and saw some buffalo.  MonkeyMe was very excited about that because he had never seen buffalo before.  It is always fun to experience new things.  IMG_1088

After leaving Custer Park, they went to see Mount Rushmore.  It must have been a long walk, so MonkeyMe hitched a ride.  Either that, or someone just has a Monkey on his back.

IMG_1090They made it to the Monument for a photo op.

IMG_1101After all the touring they stayed the night in Keystone, SD.  I can’t wait to hear what they do and where they go next!

Where’s MonkeyME? Day 4 of riding

IMG_0988MonkeyMe and his friends had a great day on the road yesterday.  The weather was much better than the day before.  They had sunshine and blue skies all day.

They started out the day by visiting The Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD.  They enjoyed seeing this beautiful work of art.  MonkeyMe liked seeing all of the corn.  Who knew that monkeys liked corn?  IMG_0994

After touring The Corn Palace, they rode on up the road to Murdo, SD and went to the Pioneer Auto Show.  MonkeyMe loved all of the old cars.  IMG_0999

From there they sent to Wall, SD and visited Wall Drug Store.  You can’t go to South Dakota and NOT go to Wall Drug!  They acted silly but had a lot of fun.  IMG_1033

They continued North to The Badlands National Park.  The scenery was beautiful.

After a day of site seeing, they were ready to stop for the night, so they rode on to Rapid City, SD.  They got a room and had a good dinner.

Where will their adventure take them today?  Check back tomorrow to hear all about it.  Stay safe!

Where’s MonkeyMe? Day 3 of riding…..

Rain, rain go away…MonkeyMe wants to play.  Miserable day of riding yesterday in the pouring rain.  It was a long hard day of riding with no time for fun or shenanigans.  It rained the entire 740 miles we rode. Stopped for the night in Mitchell, SD.

rainHoping today will turn out better so we can have some fun.  Stay safe out there!

Where’s MonkeyMe? Day 2 of riding

FullSizeRender1MonkeyMe had a very exciting day of riding yesterday.  After leaving Tupelo, MS, he rode on to Clinton, AR where he went to see the Natural Bridge.  After paying his fee to enter the park, he paused for a photo op with shop keeper.FullSizeRender (4)  The bridge was about a mile down a very narrow and winding road.  MonkeyMe was very scared, but he didn’t complain.  When you’re on a motorcycle, sometimes you just have to suck it up and deal with the conditions.  The scary ride was well worth it to see the beautiful natural phenomenon called the Natural Bridge.

FullSizeRender (5)After taking a photo, he had to endure the ride back out on the same winding road.

He and his friends hit the road again to continue the adventure.

IMG_0245They stopped to eat at Lambert’s Cafe (Home of Throwing Rolls) in Ozark, MO.  After filling their bellies, they continued on and spent the night in Springfield, MO.

I can’t wait to see where his travels take him next.

Where’s MonkeyMe-Day 2

IMG_16941MonkeyMe was spotted in Geneva, GA shopping at The Funky Skunk.  We are unsure as to whether he was shopping for fishing tackle or just browsing through the pawn shop.  At any rate, he said that the people there were very nice.  He would definitely go back to see them.

Later on they stopped for lunch at Tin Lizzie Cafe in West Point, MS. MonkeyMe had a hard time deciding what to eat. They had a good meal and hit the road again. They eventually stopped for the night in Tupelo, MS. Where will they go today?

Where’s MonkeyMe?

MMmotorcycleThis morning MonkeyMe set out on an exciting adventure.  He is traveling from Savannah, Georgia across the United States via motorcycle.  That’s right…a motorcycle!  But don’t worry….he has his helmet on.  After all, safety first!

He was extremely excited to be going on this trip.  Where will he go?  What will he do?  He will tell us all about it along the way.  Maybe he will be in your town.  Keep an eye out for him.  If you spot him, snap a picture and send it to:  pictures@monkeyme.com and tell us where you are.  For now, we will be waiting anxiously for him to tell us where he is and what he is doing.

Safe travels, MonkeyMe!
