We have arrived in Custer, SD

We left Sturgis at around 9:30 this morning, headed for Custer. We arrived at 11:30. We have to move the 5er after today to another campsite due to reservations here at the Broken Arrow Campground so we have just left everything hooked to the truck until we move tomorrow.

It is very cool (weather) here right now due to thunderstorms that are moving through the area. In the high 60’s and we have the windows raised to get some fresh air. It is so nice!! So sorry that all of our family and a lot of our friends are sweltering back in SC. We would have you all over if we could!! It actually has not gotten above 72 today.

We will not be able to start any of our touring until probably Thursday. We have to change campsites tomorrow and make a grocery run and these will take about half the day. Then Wednesday the Safelite people are coming to put our new windshield in the truck. Told us they would be here between 8 and 12. So we should probably rule Wednesday out too unless we can find something very close that we can do. We will be checking on that.

We are also going to try to get by to meet Mike and Pat McFall. They live just down the road from where we are.

Stay tuned. We should have some great pictures from the Custer State Park, the 1880 Train ride, and maybe the Wild Horse Sanctuary (although the entry fee may be a little steep for us). Charley also wants to visit the Red Ass Winery near Hill City where they make rhubarb wine. And I am sure that we will do just some driving around and looking at the scenery since it is so gorgeous.
