Day seven?

First whole day at the Rally in Sturgis. What a busy day! Up at dawn. Hot water, good deal. Love it when the days starts reasonable. OK. Things to remember if I come back. Get a room or at least a site with power. The camping is free, they have showers, but only the real payers have water and power. How.small a generator do they make. Weather has been unbelievably good. No rain. We dodged a Thunderstorm ...

Cool again in the morning, 58 degrees in the lower bottoms. Some fog. But have packed well so far. Put the lining in the jacket until the temp gets to 80, and it's not too bad. Yes, the heated seat and grips were on again. Hey, 60 degrees and off feels ...

... as a National Historic Landmark.



We visited the Broom and Basket Shop where local Artisans show how brooms were hand made along with the display of beautiful willow reed baskets of all shapes and sizes.
