June 18, 2015---Spearfish, SD to Theodore Roosevelt National Park, Medora, ND.

We said “goodbye” to Ed and Ginny and were on the road at 9:30.  The only damage we had in the storm last night was a tree blown over.

We took Hwy. 85 north to Buffalo.  After eating lunch and getting fuel, we continued our journey.  Before long we crossed into North Dakota.  Since there were very few people around, we made a lot of noise.  It was the noisiest “State Line Celebration” we have had in a long, long time.

We stayed on Hwy. 85 until we got to I-94.  We turned west until we got to the town of Medora.  That was the South entrance of Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

We went looking for a camping spot.  Every available space was full or reserved.  We continued to drive through the campground several times.  Finally, luck was on our side.  A camping site had opened up and we were there to take advantage of it.  At this point, we had been searching for almost two hours.  

Today’s Travel Totals:  miles traveled, 215---critter sightings, lots of antelope and a herd of wild horses.


  1. Hi Raymonda and Bill,
    Glad to see you're back on the road in good health.

    We'll be heading out shortly going to the east, St. Louis for my Uncle's 99th!

    We had to buy a new toad. We liked you CRV but the 2015 model is not towable. We ended up buying a new Cherokee. Camping World is setting it up today.

    We leave here on less than a month and should be back in mid to late Sept.

    We have found a very good lunch restruant in Morgan Hill, Rosy at the Beach. Next time you're in town, lunch is on me!

    Steve and Jean

    1. We are glad to know your schedule. We'll be in your area the first week in August for our grandson's wedding. Sounds like you'll be gone then. Rats! We knew about the CRVs not being towable. Jeep is a good option. Hope it all works well for you. Travel safely.
