Driving through South Dakota 9/7/08

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.   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.   At any rate, we stopped in Wall, South Dakota, again, to spend a little more time browsing in the famous Wall Drug Store.  Greg got a cup of their famous 5 cent coffee, and a home baked donut.   He was a happy camper.

We drove back through the Badlands but what a change in weather.   When we arrived in the Badlands of South Dakota on the way out, the temperature was 103 degrees with a very hot sun.   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.  We’ve discovered that some of the best places to stay are private.   The couple who own this campground live right on the grounds.   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.  LOL   We are under shade trees and have internet access, TV channels by antenna, and full hookups for only $23.   That’s a bargain!

We are going to sleep well here.   We have to drive 285 miles tomorrow to arrive in Forest City, Iowa where we will spend the night in the Winnebago campground.   Our appointment is 7:00 a.m. Tuesday morning to have our window awnings installed.

Stay tuned.
