Day 13

Haven't had internet for awhile, but here's an overview of the past few days: we traveled a little further through Wisconsin and stayed at a pretty campground on a lake, rained all night and day so we got a little wet. We signed up for camp club USA which offers us a 50% discount at a lot of campgrounds! We continued our journey to Pine City Minnesota and stayed at an RV park in the van, I had to sweet talk the lady a little but she said it was ok. We swam in the pool at the campground and played 9 holes at the par 3 golf course. We traveled further in Minnesota to a campground in Rice. It was right on the water and had everything! Nice pavilions, a baseball diamond, showers. The view of the water was very pretty! Next, South Dakota! Thats where we are now! Yesterday we stopped at the Corn Palace which was advertised all along the highway, it was a funny little place, the corn murals were cool though! Then we stopped at Cabelas! Its a store that has everything! We looked at their hunting, fishing, camping, and cabin supplies! We ended up buying chairs to sit in around the fire! They are very nice! It was gross out again yesterday and the forecast was for severe thunderstorms again, so we made our journey to the only 24 hour Walmart in South Dakota in Pierre. It was a long drive on highway 34, and we saw a lot of cows and farms! We kept wondering how people live out in the middle of no where with no grocery stores or gas stations. We finally made it to Walmart, and were glad to be safe inside, while the van shook from the rain and wind.

Now we are in the Badlands! Badlands National park is breath taking. There aren't really words to describe it. The orange earth and blue skies are such a contrast and look so beautiful.
