The morning arrived and I found myself with a mini-view of Bozeman down below. I had parked the previous evening on a cul-de-sac in front of an empty lot with a view. A near perfect score! A perfect score would have somehow incorporated free beer. And a tall, free cool one would have come in handy right about then. It was starting to get hot so the first goal of the morning was to hunt down some shade for the van. I pulled up my GPS software and hunted for city park options.

Located nearby on Main and Buttonwood was Lindley Park.

I parked the van and started cooking a meal. It was late in the morning so I figured I'd just skip breakfast and eat lunch. Don't ask what it was. I'm still trying to figure out that myself. It was good though. And thanks to the bags of spaghetti holding the stove level, I didn't have to eat my meal off the carpet because the pan slid off the burner.

While my meal was cooking a black VW pulled up alongside. I noticed he was packing a lot of biking gear so I said hi and asked if he was on a road trip just like me. What transpired thereafter was about 3 hours of in depth conversation that focused primarily on his biking adventures and life experiences in general. Patrick turned out to be a very interesting individual with an unquenchable thirst for extreme biking adventure and a high tolerance to the twists and turns that life can sometimes throw at you. I admired his ability to roll with the punches.

After talking with Patrick I got down to business webmastering the site, spending a good portion of the afternoon and evening playing catch-up. Other than that I just took it easy and enjoyed the day.

Tomorrow I have plans to visit the Museum of the Rockies. They've got dinosaurs there! Dead one's of course.
