Canadian Wee Stromer Retunring from West via USofA

I leave on August 14th to ride to Calgary where my SO and children are flying in to meet me. We are spending 10 days with friends at their ranch in the foothils and at their timeshare in Radium. On my way out I am travelling through Canada and will be staying with friends.

I am seeking comment/suggestions on my route back. I leave on Sept. 1st and I must be back in Sackville by the night of Sept. 7th.

Have a look at the following. Is it reasonable? Do you have other suggestions? Have a spare bed you can put a traveller up in - in excahnge for a beer/meal and conversation?

Sept. 1: Lethbridge, AB to Williston, ND 505 mi mostly via US 2

Sept. 2: Williston, ND to Mitchell, SD 532 mi mostly secondary roads

Sept. 3: Mitchell, SD to Moline, ID 483 mi

Sept. 4: Moline, ID to Erie, PA 587 mi mostly I-90

Sept. 5: Erie, PA to Rutlant, VT 548 mi a lot of I-88

Sept. 6: Rutland, VT to Sackville, NB 600+ miles.

Sounds like a great trip. Enjoy! When you get to Mitchell, SD, check out the Corn Palace. Lots of folks make fun of it, but if you actually go look at it up close and understand how they do it, you will be impressed. The venue is free.

When you leave Mitchell, I'm sure you mean to head for Moline, Illinois (IL) . If you decide to detour thru Idaho (ID) on your way east, give me a holler if you head thru the Black Hills of western South Dakota.

Have a great ride and stay safe.
