Early morning fog. Things clear up fairly quickly. Motorcycle....motorcycle....Harley...motor home hauling trailer with motorcycles. Harley...Harley...Harley...Truck hauling trailer with motorcycles. Both directions of the highway. ALL DAY LONG. What's going on? Or the questions is more...Where are they going and coming from? Besides all the motorcycles the other thing we notice is all the billboards. South Dakota must be the billboard state. And what do the majority of these billboards announce? WALL DRUG! Ever see those bumper stickers? Well guess where Wall Drug is? In South Dakota. The past few days Alexis has been staying in the back seat. She's realized it's more comfortable lying down to read, watch a movie or just listen to music. Another billboard....CORN PALACE, Mitchell. Well that's where we're going...might as well go see the Corn Palace. Find the campground, set up and go for a drive thru town before supper. Find the Corn Palace...the whole outside of the building is covered in food...raw cereal foods. Corn, wheat, and whatever else that is grown in the region. They've been doing this for 100 years. 3rd Palace they've built. Restaurant across the street has figurines/statues in front of it of various characters. Back at the camper do an internet search about the motorcycles. They all heading to or coming from Sturgis South Dakota.
