Greetings from the Black Hills region of South Dakota, where our family is spending our last evening in the shadow of Mount Rushmore before breaking camp at first light and heading for Yellowstone National Park. The first few days of our epic, two-week journey have already proven to be quite the adventure.
The night before our trip was to begin, we outfitted our recreational vehicle with every provision we thought necessary to survive two weeks on the road and in the wilderness. Clothing, food, bedding, phone chargers, tools, duct tape, camping chairs, flashlights, etc. It seems the only things I forgot to pack were equal measures of common sense and good luck. I tried not to take it as a bad omen that our RV’s on-board generator would not start the night before spending a fortnight on the go.
After packing everything and loading Bethany’s beloved Volkswagen onto our new tow dolly for the very first time (in the rain and in the dark) we finally got to bed at 12:45AM. We pulled out of our driveway just two and a half hours later. I then proceeded to drive our 30 foot long motor coach 770 miles over the next 14 hours.
