This was suppossed to be our overnight stop

after 2 miles of this road-it was out of business


Up on Monday morning and on the road we go, after a small problem backing off George & Carols lawn, but no damage and George helped us get turned around and out. Thanks again guys , for such a neat spot-sue enjoyed your company,meals and gardens. We got more and more wind as we headed across North Dakota and a storm was predicted so we kept on going past Richardton (where we stayed before at Don's Ranch) and made it just past Theodore Roosevelt National park. Boy do we want to come back there, sure wish we had more time but I got some pictures so you can see why we will be back. We drove to a "Free Campgrounds" location and it was closed and up for auction. Well the book is 2 yrs. old and so instead of spending $10. for a spot we headed back 2 miles to the exit and found the Flying J had special spots for Rv's. Nice easy spots and a good restaurant for breakfast the next morning. Boy did we get a storm, lots of wind,rain, and even some small hail but no damage. More later.
