Custer, South Dakota

I got up early this morning, I couldn't sleep--travel day! We left McLeod about 8:30am and got to Custer, SD at 5:30 with stops along the way. The new axles and tires worked wonderfully--my husband is so handy!!

It was a very warm day, at times the temperature reading on the truck computer said 85 degrees. We started out doing very well (for us) with fuel consumption--11.5 miles to the gallon. Then we got into the Black Hills and I took us up a "dotted" road on the map--it was very scenic but also crooked and steep--our average dropped to 9.5!!! At least here in Wyoming fuel is cheaper--we paid around $4.00 a gallon.

The campground we found, Broken Arrow, is also a horse camping spot with trails into the National Forest leading right out from the campground. Great dog walking spot! After walking Jazz and having a quick dinner of leftover meatloaf, we walked up to the office where they have ice cream for sale every evening. Larry and Jerri, the owners, are very nice and welcoming and the park wi-fi actually works!

Tomorrow I am off to learn about my quilting machine and I suspect Michael is going to spend some time on the motorcycle.
