        -You find out the hard way that you need to check if the campsite you’re going to has dump stations (for gray & black water). There is only 1 campground in all of Custer State Park that has a dump station... and we drove by it quite some time ago with -full tanks. Ugh.

        At the end of the loop we headed towards Sturgis, arriving at about one o'clock. We drove through the town taking in the sites before finding a ...
