Date Day .. On the Cheap!

Bikes, helmets, water, flashlights, jackets, food .. CHECK.

Today's date began when we left home at 9:30 AM .. and headed across the state line into Montana to pick up the Route of the Hiawatha 'rails to trail' bike ride.  We probably used a few gallons of gas in the truck.  Trail tickets $10/each.  Food ~ scavenged from the pantry and garden (cheese, grapes, teardrop tomatoes, dill pickles, crackers & peppermints).

The trail is well groomed and every so often, a trail guide would be available in case of an emergency or to answer questions.  I found some wild elderberries!  Date days don't have to be expensive.
