after a much deserved two days off it was back on the trail...a wee bit of a late start in that I dropped by the RV repair shop to get some advice on correcting the issue that arose from a dishonest transaction with the person that sold me the coach.  The guy EVEN accepted my condolences on the passing of his "friend"!!!  Turns out the liar NEVER even met the deceased!!  Yes I AM bitter over my neglect. Trust BUT verify!!!  I suppose the universe has its way of "leveling" things I just wish it was in my time-frame and on my terms!!!...so much for the bitch, moan, whine and complain session!!!...today we got 19.3 miles with 36,761 steps...findings for the day: 1 cuzzie (from Strugis) 1 somewhat rusted philips screw-driver, 1 lumbar support cushion, 1 twenty dollar bill and 1 penny...no wildlife sighted...today I had to take I-90 for a couple of miles...I had sent my driver ahead and by the time I got to the Jeep she was already prepared to call it a day, just sort-a like "DONE", oh well...the cemetery was a fitting place to stop, I walked around a bit, read the Gettysburg Address and got a sense of how many people have given their all for the sake of the freedoms that we enjoy on a daily basis, I just wish all the power-hungry, money-grubbing, lying and cheating members of congress and the executive branch would stroll through that place and perhaps we might get some honesty in Washington, but alas AND alack it appears that history WILL repeat itself, "Rome where art thou?", oh it will NEVER happen to us, we are much too civilized now, RIGHT!?!?!?...set up camp at the "closed" Days End RV Park & Campground in Sturgis, SD, being a former "biker" I had always looked forward to going to Sturgis, just under different circumstances!!!...the wind blew all night long and rocked the coach to the extent that I pulled in two of the four slides, I guess Mother Nature is still in charge...see ya'll down the road...cheers!!!
