... is what we did today and a few fun facts about our trip.
I wrote earlier about Wall Drug signs. There were no Wall Drug signs yesterday because we were in the state park for a lot of the day. Today I counted the signs from 45 miles away from Wall Drug. There were 61 signs advertising Wall Drug! There were several times that I could see 3-4 signs in one look. Actually I find it a bit fun to watch ...
... br> It took a whole hour for the parade to pass, and every float, car etc had sweets that they threw to the children. Some had bags that they gathered them in! We didn't go to the competition in the afternoon.
After lunch, and Carroll got back from his work, we set off to visit Sleepy Eye, which is the town where Michael grew up. We went by Clear Lake, and they told us that it freezes over in the winter and a whole 'city' grows up on the ice, where people put cabins ...

There are the old flags from the local regiments ...
... into a hotel. Perhaps they are the new Amish. Didn't have my camera so couldn't take a picture. darn.
Leaving my bro in laws house we saw two huge bucks. They were much bigger than the deer we see around Bellingham. These looked like deer people hunt for. They were quite majestic looking. didn't have my camera ready again, darn.
Well off to bed with the sound of rain on the roof and hoping the tornado watch doesn't turn into a tornado warning. ...
... staying on the lot tonight - hooked up to water and electric. Tomorrow Gary will learn on to put the rig on the hitch and then we will head up to his brother's house for dinner and spend the night there. We will plan a new route home to avoid Sturgis run and I will fill you in once I know where we are going.
This happy camper is a tired one tonight so I'll sign off and let you know what tomorrow brings. ...
