Talked to Ron last night and he is finally in Belle Fourche with cell service.  He broke wagon policy when he took off from Alzada in the fog - all went well. Every since he left Crow Agency, he's had to "pull a pass or a divide".  His cell is in and out - very frustrating. He's still fighting the heat and the bugs. Monday, he's anxious to get off towards Sturgis and then on to Fort Mead to the VA hospital. He got a big welcome in Belle Fourche and he said the people are wonderful!  He has family in town and hoping to see them. If anyone see's him or takes pictures, please email me at
