to think that we could stock up on supplies
on a Saturday. . .
we had a good plan. . .in theory.
Left Jamestown about 8:30A. . .short 1 1/2 hours to the RV Park in Bismarck. . .
rains weren’t predicted to start til around noon. . .
and last about an hour. . .so all would be well.
Yeah. . .they started about 30 minutes into our drive,
and continued the entire way. . .not bad. ..just dark, gloomy, and drizzly. . .
Hillcrest Acres RV Park is fine. . .
nice long pull through spots. . .30A FHU. ..$30 no discounts
a combination Mobile Home/RV Park. . .but very clean,
very well organized. . .and very, very full. . .
also, easily accessed, and convenient to what we wanted to see. . .
The North Dakota State Capitol Building in Bismarck. . .
they call it the “Skyscraper on the Prairie”
isn’t it sad? We were just so disappointed. . .
now, I must tell you I borrowed the two pics you see above
from the State Capitol Website. . .because. . .
there was a concert on the Capitol Mall out front
along with all these vendors. . .so my pics are as sad as the Capitol Building. . .
we didn’t get a pic of us in front of it. . .it was raining. . .the wind was blowing. . .boo hoo!
so there ya go. . .but hey. . .we’ve seen it. . .so I can check it off. . .
Now. . .on to the stocking up in preparation for our 5 day stay in Medora. . .
where we’ve been told there are no big stores. . .
you know what that means. . .tourist prices,
unless you want to drive 45 minutes to Dickinson. . .
wow. . .we remember all over again WHY we HIBERNATE on the weekends. . .
yikes. . .I still have no chicken. . .no hamburger meat. . .NO RICE. . .
very few veggies. . .NO peppers. . .
is it even possible to cook without peppers?
it was just TOO crazy. . .
Instead. . .we have NOW planned a supply stop in Dickinson ND
with the Motor Home. . .yippee. . .we’ll see. . .
if it’s too difficult to access. . .or too crowded. . .
we will just make the drive back later in the day in the Jeep.
Craziness. . .we don’t have too many crazy days. . .
but this one certainly qualifies as one of them. . .
See you next time in Medora. . .
