Aug 23, 2017 - A Travel Day - Sioux Falls, SD

/// Red Barn RV Park Tea, SD Wednesday - August 23, 2017 // A Travel Day: Woke to clear skies and much cooler temperatures this morning. We took out time packing for travel and finally left the Sawmill Campground by 9:00 A.M. Our route today would take us south on Hwy 169 and SW on Hwy 60 to I-90 and west to Sioux Falls, SD. A distance of 170 miles. The weather was very nice, no wind, the road conditions were not all that great. Fair amount of road construction zones and rough pavement. Traffic was light. // We made just one brief rest stop...

Sep 11, 2013 - Sept 11th - 27th Stop - Tea, SD

After visiting with Bud Carlson this morning we drove to Tea, SD. This is our 4th stop at this RV Park. Since last night was a late one (we got back to the trailer at 11:30pm and then got up at 6:45am to visit Bud) I am exhausted and will take a shower and go to bed. Tomorrow's drive will be only 113 miles to Onawa, IA. No pictures since the scenery is mile after mile after mile of flat farmland.

Tea is about 4 miles from Sioux Falls, nice shady RV Park. Reggi found a meat market, Lee's Meats, a local Meat processing plant, the wildlife, fish and birds in their store well all bagged by them. Reggi also found a Red Tailed Hawk sitting on a tree outside, she got some wonderful shots of the Hawk

Aug 1, 2011 - July 29, 2011 Day 56 South Dakota

We’re off at 9:25AM. It is a bright sunny day-80 degrees already! We get on I-90 but Jan quickly realizes that we should have taken Hwy 240 to the Badlands. We turn around and exit on Hwy 240 after stopping for gas. We are still in the grasslands and we see lots of hay and an occasional pond. At 10:00AM, we arrive at Badlands National Park. We get in free with the America the Beautiful pass. The topography is stunning. We stop several times and take pictures. We see big horn sheep and they cross the road in front of us. We see lots of...

Jul 14, 2011 - July 13, Fourth Stop

It rained last night, so the temps were much cooler. Still lots of humidity. On I 29 through Iowa, the Missouri River is close to the Interstate. We had to make 2 detours off I 29 because the road was flooded. 70 extra miles below the Council Bluffs area and then above it. The little Iowa roads were really bumpy and rough. We did not get to our stop at the Red Barn RV Park in Tea, SD until 6:00pm. Lots of sections of I 29 were single lane due to construction and rough. We had to go under 50 mph a lot of the time. Some rain while we were...

Jul 4, 2011 - Day 11-Leaving Hart Ranch for Red Barn RV Campground

We left Hart Ranch around 9:20 a.m. after breaking camp and filling the motor home with gas at the Ranch station. Not much to report about the trip except that it was windy most of the way. Certainly adds interest to the trip maintaining control with continuous cross winds and occasional strong gusts. Always grateful for the blessing of safe arrival. At one point on this leg of the trip, I pointed out to Suzi what looked like a large lake. Roadside signs referred to Cedar Cove (or something like that)boat access, etc. Finally, we saw that...

Apr 12, 2011 - Red Barn RV Park, for the second time

It was a good day to travel as opposed to yesterday with heavy winds. We left the Winnebago Center at 9:30AM. About an hour west we came across a gas station in Swea City, Iowa with fuel for $3.69/gallon, so we decided to top off the motorhome tank. The station/convenience store had a tight squeeze but we got up to the pump alright, but with the car attached, there was not room for traffic to get between us and the store. As I was getting out to pump my fuel, I heard some loud voices and the first thought was that someone was unhappy about...

Apr 1, 2011 - Red Barn RV Park

We enjoyed our first sunny day in over a week and it did wonders for our happiness index. If you are wondering where Tea, SD is, it's a suburb of Sioux Falls. Before we tell you about this area, I need to tell you about our departure this morning from the Blue Ox Factory. What a company!! Blue Ox certainly convinced us they are concerned foremost about their customers. Yesterday afternoon we enjoyed a personal tour led by Mark Glaubius, Human Resources Director. Just the 3 of us, so we could ask lots of questions and get a tour that was one...

Sep 23, 2009 - Moving Eastward

We started our day out with breakfast at Wall Drug in the Western Art Gallery Cafe. Breakfast was better than the bison burger and fries we had yesterday. And, of course, we each had a few cups of 5 cent coffee. Since we had to rush so much yesterday, we took a few minutes to shop around. I found a couple things that might find their way into Christmas stockings. Wall Drug is the ultimate in tourist attraction with its block long group of stores offering every conceivable tourist trinket and a wide variety of T-shirts. It is not the kind...

Jun 22, 2009 - Fifth Day

We left St. Joseph, MO and headed up I 29 toward South Dakota. We went through Iowa which was pretty flat with lots of farm land. Going through Sioux City, IO, we went right by the Missouri River again, but did not cross it. South Dakota is even more flat with nothing but huge farms with feed corn and soybeans. We are staying at the Red Barn RV Park in Tea, SD. at Exit 73 on I 29. Tomorrow we head for Cassleton, ND on I 94 for two nights. There is an indoor water park, so the kids will like it.

Oct 14, 2008 - TEA, South Dakota

Left Nebraska this morning and are now at a campground in Tea, SD. Look it up. Nice campground and cheap $24.Tomorrow we will be in Minnesota to see our friends the Sportl's & Glasser's. Took Chica out for her nightly stroll and ran into the camp owner's pet. A raccoon that they saved and is now six months old. Hope you noticed he was using a pet leash like Chica's. At least he was in style, but Chica wasn't impressed.Oh Yeah ! With all the changes in our route we have driven in RV/rental car 10,0061 miles or 16,191.6 kilometer's and we're...

Jul 1, 2007 - Tea, South Dakota

We drove 337 miles to the little town of Tea, SD today. Tea is a small town on the south side of Sioux Falls. We are just going to overnight here, then on to the Badlnds tomorrow for two nights. We are having to push on because we have an appointment to get the steps worked on in Billings, Mt on Friday the 6th. We will be able to stay there for a couple days. I was really satisfied with the performance of the front suspension on today's trip. It was well worth it. We hit a couple of stretches of expansion joint bumpy roads that previously...
