Murdo Girl…Blowing in the wind

We’re living the dream in Rapid City, SD. We have the three dogs and the cat with us in a very nice motel room while we wait for a call from Freightliner telling us to come and get ‘See Ya’ who has been there since yesterday. We learned that the Dallas Freightliner really botched up reinstalling the fuel tank. It had to be dropped again and put back correctly. With any luck at all, we’ll be on the road again tomorrow.

Feeding Time

We will be dining tonight on Top Ramen noodles from the microwave followed by coconut cream pie from a nearby Walmart. We had waffles from the complimentary breakfast this morning and Jimmy John’s subs for lunch so we’ve been well fed.

The wind was unbelievable today, but troopers that we are, we managed a couple of long walks at a park we found under similar circumstances last year.

Dinosaur Park

It’s beautiful here!!

    I liked going up on Skyline Drive in the evening. All the lights looked great. Ah, the memories…Best wishes on getting back on the road. Looks like you are making the best of it!

    Where is your final destination, Mary?

      We are going to Maine and thereabouts. We’re hoping the leaves will still be colorful by the time we get to the New England States.

        They’re beautiful in Sheridan right now, Mary. I forget how great it is to see leaves turn.

        We were in Gillette for 4 days. Kip has a sister in Sheridan, but we had to have SeeYa worked on in RC, so didn’t make it there this trip. How long will you be there?

    You said it! It does look so beautiful there! I love your rockstar Blowin in the Wind hairstyle. Nice room. I guess you upgraded from Motel 6 from last year!

      Yes. We couldn’t stand the thought of even one night back at the Motel 6.
