Motorcycle: 295 miles from Winner, SD to Jackson, MN Holy wind tunnel! This was a tough day of riding... Route 44,19,18 and 71... South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota. The wind was fierce but the sun was bright. Scenery was crops...corn, soybeans... corn and soybeans. Roads were a bit rough and the hog farms odiferous. I guess Sara was not cut out for …
... time today. Which means, we spent money. SURPRISE!!!
There are pictures of all stuff we did attached. We are off to Mt Rushmore and Custer St Park tomorrow. Hopefully we will make it to Coty tomorrow night.
Oh I forgot to mention - We met a lady in Mitchell who is a Red Hatter. She was MC at their state convention last month. Fun to meet a fellow hatter.
Out of boredom, on our ten hour drove today, we stopped at The World's Only Corn Palace. It's a palace "made" of corn. Pictures from it's olden days were pretty cool but now it's lost the grandeur of days past. It's a basketball court with corn products for sale inside now. Odd. To be fair, it's being re-done. So yeah... Corn ...
... There are even digital signs over the Interstate telling motorists to be very aware of the motorcycles.
Tonight was a free rewards night from Choice Hotels. It is a good thing, as hotels are very expensive in this tourist area of South Dakota. In fact, we were lucky to find a room, even though I booked yesterday.
Long day, went across the parking lot of the hotel and had Italian dinner. Then crashed.
... Corn Palace - really quite interesting - the entire outside wall murals are changed every year. This year's theme is "Remember This?".
Went grocery shopping after seeing the Corn Palace, then had lunch and went over to the Prehistoric Indian Village, which wasreally interesting, because it is an active archaeological dig site!

Clean rooms! Hard working owners from India. Comment of the trip... In India, if you don't work you die.... In America, if you don't work, the government feeds you.
