Well we have finally made it to South Dakota. I really liked this place, even more green grass and trees than previous places we had visited. We had to stay one night in another park so we could get a address with both our names on it so we could become South Dakota residences and get a drivers Licence. I think we arrived on the 18th June 2011 or close there about. When we pulled up in front of the office I told Dann to make sure we get a site nearest to the WIFI Transmitter tower. Well we couldn't have got a better spot.It was next to a COKE machine and what I thought was a Laundry. I made a bee line for the coke machine after we had finished un-hooking and setting up. As I approached the machine with my tongue licking my lips, (been a while since I had downed a coke) I heard this voice saying..Ma'am that machine is out of order !! I thought..WTF !! I looked around and seen this woman standing inside her doorway of her 5th wheel, I remember thinking, Your wrong woman, the machines on I can see the lights on even in day light. Anyway that was my introduction to Snookie who is responsible for me getting in to blogging and I thank her dearly. By the way, that was the only time I ever heard her call me Ma’am, 2 days later it was another word she called me..we hit it off straight away. I felt really comfortable here. Hadn't felt like that since we left Tucson. Snookie and her cronies included me in their Mexican Train games just about every third night. I tried to teach them Aussie English but it was a lost cause, Cant teach these dam Americans anything !!
It rained just about everyday we were here..I loved it. ! I was always amazed at the cloud formations here. Below is a picture of what It looked like most afternoons.
So cool and overcast !!
This one concerned me a bit.

It was either Val or Snookie that always won Mexican Train. They were good I have to admit. I just wanted to win ONE Lousy game you 2
Our Day Trip To See Mt Rushmore
We set of early on a day of sight seeing. Our main stop was going to see Mt Rushmore. We had drove past this National Monument the day before. I have to say it was awesome to see it from a distance in the comfy of the truck. Dann really wanted to see this up close. He told me he felt a over whelming sense of pride of being a American. Our first port of call was to a little tourist town called Keystone I think. here they had a Wax Museum of all the American Presidents.
JFK and Little John John
The Swearing in Of President Johnson. Jackie still has John’s blood over her.
I am not going to post all the pictures i took, every President is in there, some I thought didn't look like the actual person for example this one below.
So done visiting the Wax Museum we decided to get a bite to eat. I spied this really old style 50’s style Burger Joint. So in we went.
With Full belly's we set of on the next part of our sight seeing trip. The main street of Keystone was a busy place. I noticed this full size stage Couch poked up in what looked like a veranda.
Next stop Mt Rushmore.

Another picture I played around with.
Well we came..we saw and left. I was in awe of what I had seen. A great day out sigh seeing.
