Day 50: Motel 6 Hell, Copper King Mansion, and “Joe’s Pasty Shop” from the Travel Channel

Tuesday, July 20th, 2021

This morning was more than welcome after the hellish night I had. Motel 6 was disgusting, I won’t be staying there again. Between checking on my car all night, not being able to sleep even WITH a sleeping pill, and trying to not be fixated on the cigarette smoke in the room…I was wiped today. AND I had an 8 hour drive ahead of me, WHERE would I find the energy for this day?  God willing, I just showered and got the heck out of Dodge and headed towards Butte, Montana.


3 hours later I arrive in Butte, looking for a specific thing to do, as I didn’t want to expend a lot of energy here when I still had such a long drive ahead of me. I chose the “Copper King Mansion” which I was lucky enough to catch the 10 a.m. tour for $10.  It lasted an hour, and as I listened, I started to not feel very well. I realized I hadn’t eaten a real meal in over a day, living off Red Vines only take you so far. So I finished the tour and headed out to find the infamous Butte, Montana Pasty!

Basically a meat pocket, but “Joe’s Pasty Shop” wasn’t something just ordinary, the Travel Channel had been here! Yep, “Man vs Food” had come into town a couple of years ago to try out the famous pasty itself. So of course, while in Rome, I saddled up to a table, ordered my very own, and dug in! It was delicious, even with gravy on the side, and I felt much better after getting some real food into my system.

With driving over a total of 10 hours today, I am exhausted. I made it to Angela’s just fine in Kalispell, and had a great dinner with the family, spoiled the kids with Disney goodies- Angela too, and now am hoping to slip into a much needed coma soon.

I am wiped out. See you tomorrow.
