Up about 8, beautiful cool sunny morning. A quiet night and feeling refreshed. After a quick breakfast we drove around the Theodore Roosevelt National Park to see the visitor center there in Medora. Had to get a stamp for my collection! Back on I-94 west. We did see a very hazardous driver weaving around the road, but otherwise the traffic was very easy. We are seeing a lot of oil fields and the work and equipment that goes with that.
About noon, we weren’t sure where we would stop for lunch, but Bob saw a sign for a quilt shop at the next exit so we pulled in there. I got to browse in the quilt shop, Suzi’s Stash, which also sold lunches and coffee! I bought quilting postcards and a pattern for tool holder. Because I just threw away some patterns and I have room for more! We ate salads in the trailer, but we realized the fridge wasn’t cooling. It had worked fine at home, so we restarted it and heard the propane light. Checked later on and it was cooling back down. Continued westward, rolling hills and wheat fields and trees turning. At Dickinson we turned onto Hwy 22 north. Found Little Missouri State Park, a beautiful spot. Parked right on the edge of the badlands bluffs. We were the only people in the park, nobody was in the office when we arrived. It was a little confusing about sites and reservations, I did try online but had a hard time with the website and reception. So I did call the reservations number and found out that we could pretty much take any site we wanted and then call back. She's in some office far away so couldn't be more helpful. We drove through the campsites, all empty. So we picked one with a super view, intending to unhook and try the online service again. A park ranger did show up while we were unhooking, kind of scolded us for parking without a reservation. He was a young guy and clearly thought he was dealing with some old duffers!
Took a walk in the evening and Bob grilled steaks. I cleaned up the floors in the trailer and then watched a beautiful sunset. This park has accommodations for horses, with corrals for each site. Therefore, some horse odors and flies and bees. After dark, 2 other rigs pulled in, horse trailers with sleeping space in front.
We gained an hour today and I did just a little knitting in the truck. I've been getting better with the new invisalign braces I just got, but I lost a little button and a hook from my teeth. I've still got plenty of other attachments to keep those teeth moving! Kim, who set me up with these braces, told me not to worry if some come loose so I won't!
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate the time you have taken to look for and read my story. I hope you find something that you like!
