It is still the beginning. The bookstore left Eureka last Wednesday. By late that afternoon, it made it to Bozeman, MT for the first bookstore tour event which was at Wildrye Distillery. Quite the opening with old friends, new friends, and people who happened to pass by, who were curious and lingered.
Then miles of road across Montana and N. Dakota. Rain and snow and sun, mountains and plains. A beautiful full moon. Some questions arose. Why is the place we ate in Custer, MT called the Junction City Saloon? Some questions answered. Fargo, ND has a population of about 120,000 with Microsoft being the largest employer. Had a wonderful meal in that city at Passage to India.
Some new experiences. A person passing the bookstore on I-94 took photos and posted them on social media. A woman who saw the bookstore in Glendive wrote inviting us to set up there the next time we pass through. Although typically the bookstore is parked in winter months, in N. Dakota there was the challenge of driving on ice.
Tomorrow the bookstore sets up at the Birchwood Cafe. Then on to Illinois, Kentucky, and N. Carolina. So many more adventures waiting to happen. So many new people to meet, stories to hear. The bookstore shifts into a new realm this season. So many new horizons.
