Canada or Bust: It's Wednesday

National Park, National Monument blitz has whittled down; kind of ... Currently camp set up across the street from the Pipestone National Monument, home of the Red Stone Pipe.

Yellowstone, Devil's Tower, Mount Rushmore, Badlands all were on the list; and we checked them all.  Today's National Monument is a bonus.  We will check it out tomorrow.

Of all the RV Parks we have stayed at my favourites have been Arco, ID and Badlands, SD.  We have stayed at KOA mostly, as there is a given formula and known amenities; however, aside from the two mentioned have been a bit on the busy side for my liking. Not congestion, just large. more commercial; not as "cute".  Arco and Badlands both are family run with the owners living on site.  This I believe makes the difference; personal touches are everywhere; including quirky signs; grounds are clean and scenic.  They take the time to make you feel a part of their living space.

Tonight we hunker down at a private site in Pipestone; nice, and cute.  Marcus mimics me "Is this your style?"  It is.

A storm is brewing, thunder clouds threaten, crossing my fingers it does not pour.  The bit of rain we had driving the other day found it's way though the air vent on the ceiling.

Tomorrow: Duluth bound.
