Had a stopover in Mitchell SD. . .just because it was convenient. . .and because the roads in Iowa were so rough, we needed to make repairs to things that shook loose. . .wow. . .they fastened all the trim boards with brads. . .those do not hold up with the jolting, so we are screwing them in. I guess we will just repair them as they fall off. . .two this trip. . .one on a previous trip. . .can't be too many left.
Found out the Laura Ingalls Wilder Homestead was not too far away. . .as a child, I read every book she wrote, so I was excited to visit. . .however. . .in the NORTH Country, things do not open for the season until Memorial Day Weekend. . .so I guess I was a week early. . .I really hated to miss it. . .
Then, we found out that Mitchell SD is famous for the World's only Corn Palace, oh boy, oh boy. . .let's go see that. Actually it was interesting in a bizarre sort of way. . .it is popular enough to be featured on the Travel Channel. . .
In the morning we head to Mt Rushmore. . .looking forward to meeting up with RV friends and enjoying the experience for the next two weeks. . .check in again soon.
