Aug 9, 2016 - A very bumpy ride on I -90 E

We left Rapid City and headed towards Minnesota. We stopped along the way to a place called Wall. Recommended by our friend Ray. There were signs all along the Hyway giving you interest to stop. What a cool little town full of touristy things . You name it , they had it! It was a hot and humid day, we asked a fella the temp, and he looked on his phone and said, 94 degrees,, felt like 100. Thank goodness for air conditioning! We saw many fields of sunflowers, along the hyway, very pretty! Now we are in Luverne at a State Park called Blue...

Oct 10, 2011 - Avacados In Minnesota?

We went to Garretson, South Dakota to see Devil's Gulch, and on the way we realized we were only 2 miles away from Minnesota! So, we figured we could slide in just across the border and you would all think we spent a month there touring and posting pictures. Well we actually stopped at the visitor center and took a couple of pictures, and we realized that we did not have enough pictures to make a complete post. Generally we post 10 pictures......but we failed at this! We were in Minnesota for a whopping 30 minutes, and it counts as a state...

Sep 7, 2011 - Driving through USA

Aug 6th We drove from Kalamazoo, Michigan to Wyalusing on the shore of the Mississippi River in Wisconsin. The names just get better and better!! To get there we drove through 4 States, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin. Sounds impressive aye? The reality is that we were near Lake Michigan when we started, dropped down into Indiana briefly as we went along the south side of the lake (for about 35 miles-we are in USA so it’s in miles), drove north through Illinois for most of the day, and then drove about 50 miles into Wisconsin to...

Hello everyone, yesterday we arrived at Blue Mound State Park near Luverne, Minnesota about 2:00, it was over 90°and very humid.

From there we went to Sioux Falls and saw the falls that gives the...

Jun 1, 2011 - Veteran's Museum, Blue Mound State Park

I explored the fabulous Veteran's Memorial and Museum before going to Les and Cheryl's house. Luverne was one of four towns picked by Ken Burns to be featured in his documentary for PBS called "The War." Why Luverne? In 1939, 20 of the 21 male high school grads went on to serve in the military leaving behind a great void on the family farms in the area. Of the 10,683 residents in Rock County, 1,065 served- 32 killed. The war left a deep impression on this town and it is felt until today. After an early dinner followed by a church service,...

Aug 17, 2008 - Trip to the drive-in movies

We headed over to Luverne MN last night to hit the drive-in movies. I haven't been to one of those since 1981, and it was Carrie. LOL Luverne was a quaint little town, old houses, small town that rolls the sidewalks up at night. The courthouse looked relatively new but had a castle like look. We had dinner at the Magnolia Steak House, which was wonderful! A little pricey, but can't beat the beef. Steaks so large I had to bring over half of mine home. The movies were great, double feature for $5/each, how can you beat that? We saw WallE...

May 12, 2008 - Wall Drug

We traveled across South Dakota today, stopping at Wall Drug to shop a bit. We spent 2 hours in there. It's quite a large store with a little bit of everything to sell. This is the store which made itself famous by offering free ice water to travelers in the 30's. It still has free ice water and coffee for 5 cents a cup. The picture of Sheila was taken in their "back yard" We finally ended the day crossing the border into Minnesota.
