Buffalo, WY to Sturgis, SD

It was a low mileage day today, and happy we were about that!  There were miles of snow fences on I90.  It's interesting to see all of the gates and signs saying that if the lights are flashing the freeway is closed.  I would not want to be here in the winter.

There is much construction going on.  In this section, they are taking the road way down to dirt.  You don't see that very often.  One wonders if it will be done by first snow fall.  We had a screaming tail wind all day.  We're hoping not to have this wind pattern when we return west.

Truly big sky country. 

After we arrived on the site and started taping the America's Cup we went in to Sturgis for food and mail.  Coming back, it looked like end of days.  I love these skies.


Today's key learning is to pay closer attention to the slope of the site.  We moved forward in it to make room for the truck, and then couldn't level because it slopes off.  Then we had to unhook the utilities and move back in the site.  It was a laborious process, I'm really hoping the people in the office weren't watching.  It also rained like heck on us, one of those rains where you're instantly soaked.
Tomorrow we're up and out to Rapid City to get new driver's licenses.
In today's sporting news, Emirates-New Zealand is one race away from taking the America's Cup away from the US.   The Kiwis have just sailed the ears off of the Oracle boat.

  1. That's a beautiful stormy sky photo!

    Yes, occasionally we get all unhooked and discover we're too far from the electrical pedestal or some stupid thing like that and have to rehook up all over just feel like an idiot!!! Luckily it's a pretty quick fix!
