We got on the road reasonably early this morning. We'd put the slides out last night but didn't set much else up so it didn't take long to pack everything up. We didn't travel I-25 very far before heading east on I-80. I made an executive decision to not go through Lusk this trip. We've traveled that route several times & I wanted to see something different. I'm not sure that it was a great idea as I believe it took us at least an extra hour to arrive in Custer. We were out of Wyoming & into Nebraska very quickly traveling Nebraska 71 north, to Nebraska 2 east, up Nebraska 385 north until we reached the South Dakota state line. It is so exciting to be back in the Black Hills. Larry says when we get close "it makes his heart sing". Cool statement honey!

It was another 300+, seven hour travel day & we were very ready to be out of the truck. Onyx screamed in excitement the last 10 miles, this really is her favorite place on the planet. Between the deer, prairie dogs, wild turkeys & bison she is truly in hog heaven! And she's always happy to see Dick & Lou and Paul & Marci. Dick & Lou have two grandson's traveling with them. The boys are from Virginia & they will be visiting the Black Hills until this Saturday. We hear they have a full schedule for their remaining time here. They were enjoying crab legs (brought from Virginia) for dinner when we arrived. I gave them a bad time over that one! They gave Onyx a bite or two & even though I made her come home the little brat snuck back over there when I wasn't looking! Not that I blame her, LOL!

After being in the 90-100 degree temps for the past few days it feels wonderful to be back in the 70's again. It will take us a few days to get all set up, but I'll share a couple of pics of our site with you when we're done. It's still really green here too, love it! In fact there's been a light rain for the last couple of hours this evening. Sounds so nice! It's supposed to be clear tomorrow with a 20% chance of showers Friday-Monday. So, as soon as we have a clear day we'll be getting the boat set up. Can't wait to get on the lakes. Yes, I said lakes. We love both Bismark & Stockade. And I'm ready to drop a line in the water too. Well, that's it for now. Time to hit the sack. Night....
