Great day! The good weather, roads and friends to travel except _________ not to name names.
From Murdo we drove to 1880 town to have breakfast at a great railroad diner. After breakfast we drove to Wall Drug to have the water and do the tourist trap stop. I let Dave drive today so off to the Badlands and 32 miles of dirt on Sage Creek Rim Road …
