We stopped off long enough at our cell-reception site for me to get on line and order syringes to be picked up at the Walgreens near our hotel in Billings, and to leave a message with our Pediatric Endocrinologist requesting a prescription order for test strips to be called into the same Walgreens. Bless ‘em, they had it all arranged within a couple of hours. Unfortunately the test strips were not eligible to be covered by our insurance for another week or so, but the pharmacist was kind enough to set aside a box for us to purchase retail (ouch).
Leaving South Dakota, we passed very briefly through Wyoming and saw some antelope along Highway 212 passing through a wire fence.
Then into Montana. The first few hours of Montana were mostly grasslands...
On the other side of the hill, we pulled into a gas station for a conference call and SUV-made lunch.
A few more hours, and we pulled into the Residence Inn in Billings, Montana, dropped Popper in the parking lot, and noticed a horrible gas smell coming from the truck. Shoot. That’ll need to be checked out very soon. Papa and Cubs ordered pizza and hung out at pool while I picked up D-supplies at the pharmacy. After dinner, the kids watched the cooking channel, Papa Bear watched a movie, Mama Bear posted pix (yay!). Then off to bed we all went.
