Leaving So. Dakota for Nebraska

Sept. 24th

It poured all last night and well into today and yet again tonight – enough already.  The flies are everywhere including our RV.  According to history books, Lewis & Clark coated themselves with mud to ward off the flies. Let’s hope tomorrow is a better day.

Today we are off to Nebraska.  We have decided to postpone our trip to Mt. Rushmore and do it at a later date.  We had a nice day of travel down US 81 and the lovely farmland.

We crossed Missouri River in Yankton NB. This is the Missouri River Valley in the background. The Missouri River is the longest river on the continent.

Our destination is Waco, Nebraska, at the Double Nickel Campground where we will spend the weekend.

We are also contemplating going to Oconto/Broken Bow about 150 miles away where my father’s family is from, to do some family tree research.

 

It is hard to believe we have only been gone from Michigan a week ago today.  After covering now over 1200 miles and seven states, it sure seems longer.
