Thursday May 20, 2010

Last night we had TV and some spacy Internet time.

Today we are going to Michell S.D. only a couple of hours away. We stopped for some diesel, 48 gallons, $3.07 a gallon, total $148. We also rolled over on our milage in the motorhome to 100,000 miles, I guess that means it's just now broken in!

Arfter getting settled in we went to see the Corn Palace here in Michell. It's a sight to see. Every year a new theme is chosen. In the early summer, all of the grasses and grains are removed from the building and replaced. The murals themselves have to wait for the corn crop. Then in the end of summer, using nail guns over a half million ears of corn are sawed in half and nailed flat side to the building. The yearly cost for this is $130, 000. There is no fee charged to see this building inside . This was started in 1892

Tonight we are in a campground behind and part of a Super 8 motel. Has ever thing, full hook-ups,cable and WiFi.
