Across South Dakota

Well it's three days later and we are almost in Wyoming. After leaving Red Haw we drove to North West Iowa and spent a night in CampLana near a small lake. Raining and messy but the camper worked fine. As we left Lake Okobojo we drove to Chamberlain South Dakota and stayed at Al's Oasis Campground. It rained all the way and by the time we got there I was tired and hurried and I brushed some tree branches but we were ok and parked. The campground had good showers, but it was gravel and muddy. We ended up staying for two nights as high wind warnings closed the interstate for high profile vehicles. Finally we headed west on Friday.

We drove Friday till we got to Elkridge Campground, just before Spearfish. What a nice place and the rates were only 28.19. Definetly the best campground, private, we have stayed in so far. Our first choice is always a state or national park, but if you have to camp in a private campground, this is the best one here. Today we will drive to Gillette and boondock at Walmart as there are no campgrounds available, that will fit our unit. Should be our last trip to Gillette for awhile as we will empty our storage and head to Rock Springs and finally Florida. Yeah!
Clear skies,(and low winds),
