    Well the six months wait is over, we will be pulling out in the morning heading to SD. We will pass thru Nashville on up ST LOUIS ,Kansas City Mo to SIOUX CITY ID, then we will just follow our nose. We will stop at the Corn Palace and WALLS . From there we will head to the KOA in Rapid City SD. We should be pulling in there on the 6 June.

    Hey Hollis, if you have time, try to take a side trip over to the Devils Tower Natl Monument in WY. It's fun to see. Have a fun and safe trip.

    hey DL we are planning that side trip. I forgot to add that part. As of now we are in Sioux Fall SD. at a KOA. We will head up to Mitchell to see the corn palace. It seem we have a little extra time on our hands as we got here sooner that expected, so we will take in as much as we can beyond what we have planned..HAVING FUN..... :laugh:

    On your way the bad lands state area 60 or so miles east of Rapid City and the motor home and toad are no problem.Be sure to head from Rushmore to Crazy Horse and then head to the needles and Custer State park with the pig tail bridge. Go from west to east through the needles WITH THE TOAD as there are a bunch of tunnels that look at Rushmore through the tunnels going the west to east route. Stop at the Lake Sylvia lodge and walk around or have a bite to eat, was great last time there. At lake Sylvia is a great pic-nick area and if you look close I think this is part in the movie National Treasure II.There is also a state park 20 or so miles SE of Rushmore that has a bunch od wild donkeys. Then there is always the train to Deadwood for a day. Have fun

    It might be too late now, but wave to my aunt (Jessie Mae) in Mitchell as you go by. Livin' in the same house my dad was born in, in 1918.
    Have a great trip. :bleh: ;)

    Hollis just tell Rod you are at the beach and he will be there. I need to pick his brain about a rear end in a diesel MH. Need to find one or a place that will repair them

    Nope not on mine Hollis. Son is working on a 95 Monnaco diesel with a stripped ring gear, pinion. Just trying to help him locate one. We don't have any specs on lash or preload so don't want to tackle repair. We have it out but no one around here will replace the gear and pinion.
