We had another great day with Jerry and Jared. Our first stop was a very unusual Flea Market in Piedmont, I will do a separate update on this one later. :-) Next, we took them to see the famous town of Sturgis, this town will be filled with over 400,000 visitors next week. We are already seeing a ton of people on motorcycles in town. I can only imagine how busy this place will be in a few days.
Our next stop was the western town of Deadwood. Long before the modern day gaming halls were built, Deadwood was known as a lawless town run by infamous gamblers and gunslingers. Bars and gaming halls made up this tiny town that was home to legendary characters like Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane and Seth Bullock. We all enjoyed walking around town and ended the day with a nice buffet at the Silverado. It was a fun weekend with family.
Check back later for a few more updates from South Dakota before we leave on Wednesday. We will be exploring the state of North Dakota next, especially around Roosevelt National Park. Let the fun begin. :-)
