Jul 6, 2011 - Sioux City, IA to White River, SD

July 6, 2011 Stayed overnight at White River, SD. This is the middle of nowhere, almost. It seems that this is predominantly a Native American community. We are thinking that this is not a reservation as other races live in the community and there are no signs to state the ownership. We parked at the RV locations in the city park. We are the only ones here. There is an electric supply in the middle of the RV sites, but it doesn’t work. Fortunately, the temperature at bedtime was 72F and dropped to 65F during the night. We have our inverter...

Aug 17, 2006 - Scruffy Speaks

Can you believe these people? Every time I get in that cage, they change the scenery when I get back in the RV. I never know what I will see when they let me out of that cage. As they were getting ready to leave this morning, I noticed that Chet was having a hard time with the front jacks. Since they were not working, Chet had to crank them manually. Luckily, a neighbor came over to help him out so we could leave. Another neighbor mentioned a RV dealer in Rapid City so they took me out into a waiting room while they worked on the jacks....

Jul 29, 2006 - Whooie it's hot!!!!

Heat wave doesn't seem to adequately describe what we are experiencing as we inch our way through South Dakota. Perhaps I should tell you what it is really like... We get in the RV by 9:30am hoping to beat the heat. (We spent the night in a motel because it is too hot for our air conditioner to function.) We find that our refrigerator has also been overcome with heat exhaustion, so all of our perishables have actually perished. We get on the highway with windows open, feeling searing-hot wind blowing through our hair. (Shawna would like you...

Aug 3, 2005 - Black Hills to Murdo

Aug. 3, 2005 Black Hills to Murdo We left the Black Hills with the small goal of getting to Wall Drugs and then a little further. We made it to Wall Drugs; a store that is somewhere between a circus act and an old five and dime store. There is little sign of a drug store inside of the city block of rooms and buildings. I admit it; I did leave some money behind. I now have a pair of coach slippers/driving shoes? Back on the road I had visions of making it all of the way to Dell Rapids. We were doing quite well. There were storms behind us...

Jun 9, 2005 - South Dakota / Fort Randall Dam

Met up with the Murrays, Joe and Diane, from Fayetteville, NC and took off again on our adventure. We proceeded on the back roads to Fort Randall Dam. Ft. Randall Dam is part of the series of dams that had been constructed in the 50' and 60's to provide electricity and control the yearly flooding. Besides flood control, damming the Missouri river has created a series of long beautiful lakes. We stopped and took some pictures and the Corp of Engineers visitor center personnel told us about Fort Randall. Wanting to see as many of the old...
