We then headed for the Badlands of South Dakota and the first stop was an authentic prairie homestead of a family who homesteaded the area in 1909. The home is a very humble one being a sod home built into the side of a hill. An abandoned shack was later added so they had a parlour a kitchen and a bedroom. The outbuildings were also preserved.
The badlands themselves were spectacular and I will let our photos speak for themselves
Our last stop was and the South Dakota Air and Space Museum where Brian enjoyed looking at all the planes. It was probably close to 40 degrees outside so my enthusiasm was waning for being out walking around.
We camped at Walmart again. We had a young fellow come over from another motorhome to ask Brian for some assistance. He and his wife and 2 small children had purchased this motorhome in North Dakota for $4000 and were headed home to Minnesota. He had been given no instructions whatsoever about the operation of the vehicle, and his generator was not working. This motorhome was their home. Brian spent some time with him explaining as best he could the operation of the various systems in the vehicle. It took a long time to cool down enough to sleep.
