We planned out more of our journey and now have reservations at most of the places we want to stay until just past Labor Day. I still need to make 2 more reservations, hopefully I'll have time to finish that tomorrow. It's actually a lot of work and gets pretty tedious doing this campground research. We try to use several sources to be sure we're finding and comparing the available campgrounds. We use the state's online directories, Trailer Life (although their new online service isn't too fast), indivual park web sites, http://www.rvparkreviews.com/, and other people's blogs to help us decide. We also look at our planned route and try not to get too far away from that, due mainly to the high fuel costs. Another resource I use is Google Earth. I've actually found additional campgrounds that may not be well represented on the internet by scanning the area with Google Earth.
We visited with some of our neighbors, and I've walked the dogs a few times. I've also ironed a bunch of our clothes and watched a rainstorm pass.
Quite an exciting day!
These pictures are from a few days ago, when we walked at Stockade Lake. There's a deer in the lower right portion of the picture below:
We are heading out early tomorrow with the Castle to travel to Rapid City to have the solenoid replaced. This is supposed to fix our problem with the driver's side slides. Keeping our fingers crossed!
