Sturgis, We Have a Problem

So instead of sleeping, I thought I'd surf the net a little and look for attractions/hotels near Mount Rushmore. Sturgis, home of the big annual motorcycle event happens to be near Mt Rushmore. And you'll never guess when this year's motorcycle rally is scheduled... Aug 4-10. Which is exactly when we are planning to be in the area. Preliminary searching is not showing any available rooms anywhere within 100 miles. Looks like I'll have to break out the atlas and do some further investigation on this one.

Darn it.

Hey, we're home!

We stayed at the Howard Johnson in Rapid City. It's new and really nice-was cheap when we booked it, but has gone up (I can understand why, it's worth even the cash they are asking now)

I highly recommend it-and if you want any other Mount Rushmore info,let me know.

Have a wonderful trip!! Just wanted to let you know that the collab kit I'm doing will still be available when you get back ;o). Have lots of fun and let me know all about it when you get back.

Um, you're going there then?

I lived in Pringle for a very short time. Nothing there but a gas station, post office, church and a bar. We'd go to Rapid City to see movies in the park on Saturday nights.

Nice memories. Thank you.
