This was a gem of a State Park that we found out in the “boonies” next to the Missouri River in South Dakota
Site Quality = 4.5/5
Really nice sites here. Long paved or gravel pads, mostly [...]
A quick review of our 2-night stay in Murdo, South Dakota
No dedicated website, but you can link to phone info here: American RV Park
Site quality = 4/5
This park has an upper and lower level. The upper levels are very nice pull-through concrete pads with full hook-ups (50 Amp/water/sewer), bench and [...]
They always say to expect the unexpected when you travel, and I’ve found that if you approach things with an open heart and free mind you can often find gems of surprise in the most unusual places. And that’s how we started the day…wheeling the monster into the tiny town of Murdo, SD.
This unassuming spot is [...]
As we’ve driven out of an arid 10% humidity in the desert and well into the sweaty 80% of South Dakota my thoughts turns to sticky stuff. Call it brain going to mush if you will, but my mind always has a strange way of thinking that manages to surprise even me (always a way to [...]
We’ll we’re off East and further “out there” so not sure we’ll have blog access for a few days (we’ll see). In the meantime it’s time to say a last goodbye to the Black Hills of SD and our 2 weeks here.
The Pahá Sápa, so named by the Sioux Indians for their dark Ponderosa Pines, are a sacred and [...]

Info on Campground Here: Comanche Park, SD
Site Quality = 4/5
The sites here are, overall, quite nice. Most of the sites are long, dirt and very level (especially for a forest location). This is a [...]
Oh, give me a home

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~Kahlil Gibran
I’ve always been a nature-lover. I’m much happier playing in the dirt than sitting in a spa whch I guess brings me closer to the pigs than to the movie stars, and I’m quite alright [...]
As a true-bred Dane and a descendant of Vikings I like to think of our small populace getting out and having a hand in the world. So, it always brings a tender strum to my heart-strings when I come across an example of Scandinavian touch on a larger scale. Mount Rushmore, surprising at it may seem, is [...]
Well, we’ve finally done it. We’ve left the State of fruits and nuts and gone over to the dark side of the country and become South Dakotans. It was a painless transition, in fact even a pleasurable one and a change many full-timers have done before us.
You see in the land of the free [...]
