We got an earlier start today. Not an early start… An earlier start. Today’s drive time was five hours and fifteen minutes. It was very windy today. We knew the wind would play havoc on our fuel mileage. We had to fill up twice and then after we unhitched, Hubby had to take the truck and fill up again for tomorrow’s drive.
Again, the roads were horrible. I feel so bad for the pups on these railroad track interstate roads. Their little bodies just bounce. But they are troopers. They are such good travelers. We made sure to stop and take them out for a walk so they can do their business. We gave them a snack and drinking water.
Today was a boring drive. We did pass by these animal sculptures at the Porter Sculpture Park.
I don’t know if you can tell from the pictures but we crossed the Missouri River.
We arrived at our KOA in Kennebec, South Dakota. Talk about being in the middle of nowhere. This is a small park. I think around 60 sites. It is right off the interstate so they are very busy here. It is 9 pm and RVs are still coming in. There are also a lot of tenters here. It’s fun to watch people put up their tents. Some are very good at it. You can tell this is not their first rodeo. Some fumble and struggle. I I could not imagine traveling all day and getting to a campground and having to set up a tent and sleep on the ground. Maybe 50 years ago when I was much younger.
These parks along the interstate are nothing to brag about but they do the job for overnight stops for us. The sites are dirt but level. Level is good. We have full hook-ups but we didn’t hook up the sewer today. We were not showering and I was not washing clothes.
We had a picnic table and firepit. Both of which we won’t use. We are tired after a travel day and tomorrow is another travel day. They have cable TV here but we also decide to not hook up the cable and just scan for channels using our antenna. We get good reception using the antenna. People will say, “campers don’t watch TV”. I tell them we are not campers. We are RVers.
There is one rental cabin on the property, a nice swimming pool and hot tub and a pavilion.
Tomorrow we head to Devil’s Tower in Cook County, Wyoming. We will pass through another time zone. Devil’s Tower is in the Mountain Time Zone. We are staying in another KOA five minutes from Devil’s Tower. Hubby asked me to get his camera ready. I got it out, charged the batteries.
