Day 75, July 23: Seattle, WA to Great Falls, MT (475 NM); Great Falls to Milwaukee Timmerman Field, WI (1,019 NM)

0800 transfer to airport, we did routine pre-flight procedures and embarked on our last two legs of our Around the World Journey.  The forecasted storm with possible icing in the vicinity of Great Falls actually became no threat upon arrival nor on departure. Tailwinds assisted our 1.5 and 3.5 legs today.
