Across the plains
Today was a long day; it is a little over nine hours from Rapid City to Mark & Jodi’s with not a lot of scenery along the way. After all the sights we have seen over he past weeks driving across the plains and seeing level flat surroundings with all types of grains and corn along the way and only an occasional antelope. About the only exciting things were areas of wind generators which are the new thing across the plains. The stimulus package is also working as about half the interstates we traveled were tore up with big signs indicating stimulus money being used. We arrived at Jodi’s and soon were taken over to Nicole (my granddaughter) and Shannon’s newly built home and it is a beautiful home. Christina, another granddaughter was there and later we all had dinner together and of course it is wonderful to see them all.
