June 15, 2015---Cabela’s in Rapid City, SD to Ed and Ginny’s house in Spearfish, SD.

By the time we finished breakfast, hooked the Honda on, dumped the holding tanks, and filled both vehicles with fuel, it was nearly 11:00.

Not long after leaving Rapid City, we went through Sturgis.  That is the town that hosts a motorcycle gathering ever year.  This is the 75th year for it and they are expecting a million people to attend.  Wow, what a party!

We got to Ginny and Ed’s house in time for lunch and some “catch up” visiting  We don’t see them often, but we talk on the phone a couple of times a year.  We met them at an RV gathering in Mexico.  When it came time to go across to San Fillipi they ask if they could follow us.  Of course we said “yes” and we’ve been friends ever since.  

One time when we were driving north out of Tucson I called them to see if we could see them in Casa Grande.  They said they were traveling north.  We discovered they were about two miles ahead of us.  They pulled into a Rest Area and waited for us.  We had a nice visit in a rather unusual meeting place.

Today’s Travel Totals:  mileage, 70.
