Update 22 August 2006

Hello all, we hope all is well in your lives. Who would have thought we would be enjoying the Black Hills of South Dakota as much as we are. We had planned on being here for one day, that has now turned into three days. We have seen Mount Rushmore's night program, (spectacular!!), we have driven through Sturgis (missed bike week by 2 weeks, thank goodness), We traveled today through Custer State Park and saw many more buffalo, mnt goats, bighorn sheep, pronghorn, prairie dogs and wild turkeys. We were told we would see wild donkeys, but we did not see any. We took the kids this morning into Rapid City to Storybook Island. They tell us that was the best part of the day. Wouldn't you know it, that was actually the only thing we did today that was free! We also went to see Jewel caves, but they were sold out of tours, maybe tomorrow. Tonight we finished with a drive through a place called the Needles (way cool)! We finally have WiFi reception tonight at the RV park we are staying at. We will try to stay updated as much as possible. We did not think it would be this hard to find reception. The kids are working on and have earned a slew of Jr. Ranger badges. They are trying to see how many they can get. They can't wait to show and tell Toby ( their cousin ) everything they have done and seen. Under the Big Dipper tonight, love Steve and Julie
