How is Custer, SD like Hollywood?

A travel blog entry by jakoozi


Answer - both have their names in lights. Oh I wish I'd taken a picture. We arrived in Custer ahead of schedule but were able to check into our cabin early and get settled in and changed.

Am I going to have to shimmy through that wind hole? How would the rescue teams ever find me? Am I going to start crying and have to be led out in shame? Will the hoosiers behind me ever shut up?" Well, that last one wasn't really panicky, but it was important ...
