just a quick day of 11.3 miles (18.2258 km's) with 21,048 steps...no findings for the day...no wildlife as it was hunting season opening and all the animals were in hiding or in the back of a pickup truck, I heard no less than 22 gun-shots!!!...a special thanks to John Boyle for stopping to share his story of his sister, Merietta Firecloud...thank you Roger Embry for your service to this great country...we finished up just shy of mile post 27 on route 83 southbound...packed up the motor home and headed for Rapid City to get the seal redone...300 mile round trip at 6 miles to the gallon at $4.14 a gallon, OUCH!!!...at least I got the seal done so perhaps I can rest easy as far as leaks are concerned...the last 50 miles east of Rapid City was done in rather windy conditions, not as bad as with Mom but enough to make the knot on my shoulder go from grapefruit size to that of a watermelon!!!...we parked the rig at WalMart, did some laundry and ran a few other errands then moved the rig to the repair shop...good news is that we got to stay there for FREE (oh right!!!, no such thing as a free lunch OR re-repair!!!)...Monday ran a few errands, eat breakfast at a little local diner and then hit a museum...very interesting to see how the Black Hills/South Dakota/Lakota/Sioux interacted over the years, history is always as those who write it...picked up a repaired rig and headed fro Valentine, Nebraska where we found a nice home at the Wacky West RV Camp
