This morning we awoke to a light drizzle and for the first time on this trip, Greg had to wear his rain poncho outside to unhook our electricity and water.Â Â Just a slight drizzle, though; so we certainly cannot complain.
We had a full day of driving today, plus, we entered the central time zone so we lost an hour.Â Â At any rate, we stopped in Wall, South Dakota, again, to spend a little more time browsing in the famous Wall Drug Store.Â Greg got a cup of their famous 5 cent coffee, and a home baked donut.Â Â He was a happy camper.
We drove back through the Badlands but what a change in weather.Â Â When we arrived in the Badlands of South Dakota on the way out, the temperature was 103 degrees with a very hot sun.Â Â Today the temperature is 60 degrees and we have an overcast sky.
We are camping tonight in a very small private campground called Fami-li-Fun.Â Â We’ve discovered that some of the best places to stay are private.Â Â The couple who own this campground live right on the grounds.Â Â As a matter of fact, as we were walking around this evening, the wife of the owner walked across the path with a home made apple pie, looks like they are sharing dinner with someone, but we were not invited.Â LOLÂ Â We are under shade trees and have internet access, TV channels by antenna, and full hookups for only $23.Â Â That’s a bargain!
We are going to sleep well here.Â Â We have to drive 285 miles tomorrow to arrive in Forest City, Iowa where we will spend the night in the Winnebago campground.Â Â Our appointment is 7:00 a.m. Tuesday morning to have our window awnings installed.
