I guess tomorrow when I'm bored I can catch up on reading the posts.


We just got home from dinner at a Mexican restaurant. Just the 4 of us. GS at his mothers and she will bring him over early. Yeah ---- wanna bet. He will call for dad to come and get him. No tree and no presents at her house. Her DD and older DS are not happy with their mother. Sounds like DD wishes she stayed in Id. at college. She has to be back there right after New Years as she has a job teaching snow boarding. Doesn't that sound funny coming from a climate that doesn't have snow.

GS and DD are busy Thur. night and through the week end with a basketball tournament at GSs high school. Five local high schools will have teams from all over the U.S. DS said about 50 teams are flying in starting tomorrow afternoon. I saw the program and they are coming from all over. N Y City, Ga, N.J. B.C. Canada, Wasilla Ak, Hi. Nv. Tx Ut. I was amazed. He said this is a big deal as college coaches will be here looking the players over. Torrey Pine High (GS school) will host the varsity teams. GS will be a floor sweeper. He swept floors last year too. DS is scheduled each day for a shift to man the food booth

We have the breakfast material ready to take over to DS. I'm going to bake the bacon this year. I've done it several times here and it really is easy and with a foil lined pan no clean up. Also have the buffet stuff ready for a late afternoon meal. No big dinner for us.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. Stay safe on the roads.

We've been up for awhile. Darrel's been playing accordion and I'm just taking it easy. Now it's time to walk the garbage down.

Well, today is our day of rest until our potluck this evening. We all have work to do like grocery shopping and laundry! BUT, it's still early and everyone is busy already. We are all looking forward to our pot luck tonight. We will take lots of pictures, at least that's our plan!.

Our group is now compete with the arrival of Arlene and Darryl. This group is having such a good time together. It is just so fascinating that internet friends meeting for the first time and it feels like we have known each other for years, but actually we have. And when we tell others about our group they are just so surprised.

If you remember my talking about my ice cream cone that was part of my birthday celebration. I have wanted an ice cream cone for months so I treated myself.

I am looking forward to more pictures tonight and the potluck with all the variety of good food.

PJ, I didn't know it was your BD today!! So I guess I can only wish you a Happy Belated Birthday and I hope the "party" we planned for you was fun. It had to be all day though :):)

What and enjoyable day. We all traded driving duties so that we would have different people in our car/trucks. That way we can get to know individuals better. That was a fun change! Tomorrow is a free day so we can do what we want like sleep in or laundry or grocery shop for cooking dinner!! I am sure we will come up with more to share tomorrow night. Never a dull moment!!

Yup, Darrell and Arlene are here and fit right in with the group. Lots of fun talk and laughing around the fire. Mike and Brenda weren't here tonight as they went back to Mt Rushmore for the evening flag lighting service. I am dreadfully sorry to say that today was PJ's birthday and no one realized it or said Happy Birthday that I am aware of.

PJ - we apologize from the bottom of our heart and ask for forgiveness!

We made it to the campgrounds abou 4:00 this afternoon. Everyone was out and about so we got set up. Tonight most of us set out around the fire and visited till it got too cool. It's fun getting to know the friends we've been chatting with.

Ruthann - thanks a bunch for the name tags. Darrell got a charge out of them too.

Jacque- - sure wish you could be here.

Sounds like great fun is being had.

Sharon, it's no fun if you don't catch at least one marshmallow on fire, lol. I saw your FB pics. Good job.

Brenda, I'm glad you got out of the car. It would've been a shame, if you'd missed all the sights, lol.

Keep on having fun and send more posts and pics ladies.

Ruthann, I think the next get together needs to be more south, lol. Maybe a winter time get together. That way you can get out of Wa and the cold, lol.

Jude: Maybe you should tie a bell around Sharon's neck. Then when she walks you could hear her. Although I never thought that there could ever be another Sharon. I thought she is one of a kind. It looks like your a little shorter than most and looking up could be deceiving. (:-)

What a kick you guys are having way too much fun. We will have to have another get together in another year closer to the West Coast. I don't know about the rest of them but we know what it is like here. Ha

PJ...... hope that is all of your mice. They are such a bother. See you later.

Ruthann......I decided next time we do this you will have to make 2 sets of name tags for everyone so we can all wear one on our back! When we were in a crowded gift shop at Crazy Horse yesterday & I was following this blond woman thinking it was Sharon. She was limping and I thought....oh no her hip is hurting, so I thought I would be helpful and ask (to her back) "What are you looking for?" This strange woman turned around and said, "Just a place to mail this card". Never at a loss for words, I told her I thought a mailbox was in the welcome center, wished her a good visit and hightailed it back to where I had lost Sharon. How embarrassing....LOL Never a dull moment with these guys

We couldn't have had a better day for viewing both monuments and driving the Needles Highway. It is such beautiful scenery.

Weather was clouding up and lightening while we were around the fire last night, but sunny and only partly cloudy this morning. Should be a good day to tour Deadwood and the cemetery there today.

Let's hope the rain is gone when we drive in. I was watching one of the weather guys here in ND and it looked like we should be ok by the time we come. But mother nature can always fool us.

And thank heavens we could get Roger out of the car, finally!! Couldn't see Crazy horse from the car! As Sharon said, we sure did have a fun day!! And I think tomorrow will be a good addition. Tonight we broke camp a little early as we kept seeing lightening in the west. We are now hearing the thunder so I do believe the rain is somewhere in our area!!

Ruthann, we came through the badlands as we traveled here. They are really pretty. Didn't take any pictures as the wind was blowing us all over.

So much to do and so little time! We are trying to cram everything in to a few days and there is just things we can't fit in. Today was a beautiful drive on the Needles Highway on our round about way to Mt Rushmore. That was awesome and then on to Hill City to go to the Harley Davison Shop for a special T-shirt. We arrived only to find the shop is closed on Tuesday's! Then we went to Crazy Horse. Came home and we all went about our own business for dinner and a rest. Then we gathered for a campfire again. PJ & Frank arrived and joined us for the campfire. It was another almost perfect day if you don't count Roger getting locked in a car or Norm's marshmallow bursting into flames.

Don't forget the bad lands it is awesome. It is about 70 miles from Custer but it was worth it. Prox. 50 miles out of Rapid City. Just a high light that I remembered from last year.

Sounds like your time together just keeps getting better.
Have fun. Looking for pictures.

We had a super fun day today. The Mammoth Site was a wonderful experience and the drive through Custer State Park before and after Hot Springs was great. We saw lots of Totonka (buffaloes) and a few other wildlife. When we got back, Eileen and Roger had arrived. Tonight we all sat around the campfire and got acquainted with them. We did take pictures today so I'm sure it won't be long before we start posting them.

Tomorrow is another big day so we broke up early as we need our beauty sleep. Wish you all were here to share fun times. Poor Brenda, Peter accidentally looked her in the car and she had to crawl over the seat to get out. And you haven't lived until you see the contraption that Jude has for roasting over the campfire! I'll just say Pete has to keep practicing a little longer.

We got in about 3P and set up. To the grocery store and when we came back, the group was back from their day's excursions! Fun time meeting everyone.

Ruthann, I know others have thanked you and I am sending mine to you as well!! Love those name tags!! Great job!

We are going to try to extend our stay one more day but will have to move. Fri. sounds like too much fun for us to start heading back home!! Will check in with the office in the morning.

HI Gang:
You are so welcome for the name tags. It was fun.
When you get all together. Please take a picture of everyone with them on. I would love that.
Don't forget Bailey. He he....She is such a favorite pup.
OK I am off to line dancing and organizing a Talent show for the Senior Center. It sounds like fun if you can get these people to move. HA

If you get to go on the tram up to the top of a hill and ride the slide down. Do it. (I loved it) I never used the breaks and wheeeee I came all the way down the hill. Ate lunch at the top. Too bad I can't remember the name of it. Gift shop at the bottom.

Have fun!

You girls are doing a great job planning everything. Don't be concerned that you have to plan things before we get there. I expect that. I glad that you did pick Thursday night for the pot luck. We will be leaving on Sun. but we'll enjoy what ever you have planned I'm sure. I hope it will be ok for us to ride with some one else since we won't have an extra vehicle.

I'm guessing you're looking at Friday?

Everyone have fun till we get there:)

Eileen - it's probably good you didn't arrive a day early. The park has been full and tonight looks full as well. We are leaving at 8:30 tomorrow to go to the Mammoth Sites in Hot Springs. I'm not sure what time we will get back. All of us are going in two cars. Sorry we may not be here when you arrive but that will give you time to set up if we aren't. Take care and travel safe the last few miles.

Trip progress note!!

We stopped in Chamberlain, SD for the night. Got in about 4:30P. Could have made it in there about 8P but too dark and didn't have Sun. reservations. Broke camp in the rain and drove in light rain into SD. Had another detour that took us about half a mile on mud so we are a little dirty right now:(. Can't believe they detoured a major hwy (12) onto gravel. Had about 30 secs. of sun but finally drove out of the rain & fog. Looking forward to coming in tomorrow sometime after lunch!! You guys have some wonderful plans. Can't wait to meet ya'll.

Ruthann...the name tags were a real hit and so nice of you to take the time to do them when you are such a busy lady. Thanks so much.

We organized a few things for the beginning of the week and lots left to do with the rest of you when you arrive. Had to do some planning around the weather for outside activities. As Sharon said we have the clubhouse reserved for Thurs. potluck. We also decided a meal out would be fun as a group, so I will call to make reservations for the 14 of us. The restaurant serves steak, buffalo, elk, (in season)& fish. Sat. morning we will all bring some muffins and have coffee with Brenda & Mike before they leave and Marianne and Pete who leave Sun.

Sun has come out this afternoon and it is beautiful again.
It has been so much fun getting to know everyone. Will start taking pictures when we're out tomorrow.

Thinking of you all,
Jude

PJ - we are anxious for the rest of the group to arrive. Every thing we wanted to plan we wanted to wait til we were all here but there is no way we can do everything in just a couple days. So. it will all work out in the end. We do have the big pot luck scheduled for Thursday and have the Community Room reserved so whatever the weather it will be perfect.

Eileen and Roger should be arriving on Monday
PJ & Frank will arrive on Tuesday
Arlene & Darryl on Wednesday.

Some will be leaving on Sat & Sun so there is so much to see and do around here that we can't fit it all in.

And yes, Ruthann - you name tags were a hit. I have not given them your surprise not PJ's surprise. I am waiting until we are together!

WIll everyone be there on Thursday? Maybe that would be a good day for a potluck. I know I had mentioned Wed but I thought everyone would be there that day. We need to have one when everyone is there if possible. Or that is my opinion.

I go by the name of PJ and live north of KC, MO. Winter in East Texas.

Its always too soon to quit.

It may take me longer to get to my goal than my original plan but I will get there.

I'm getting excited. We'll be leaving early early on Wednesday. It's about a 10 hr drive. We're not crazy about that long on the road but with work hours there's not other option. We'll take our time.

We are now in the North Roosevelt National Park camground . We will have about 250 miles to travel before arriving Tuesday so I think it will be 2-4 when we arrive. I will give Sharon a call or message when we arrive.

I am so excited to meet all of you. Any plans made will be wonderful. I already warned Frank to practice his Yes Dear so he would be all caught up on the men's training. LOL

I go by the name of PJ and live north of KC, MO. Winter in East Texas.

Onward and Downward

Its always too soon to quit.

It may take me longer to get to my goal than my original plan but I will get there.

Ruthann, I love the name tags - thank you! emoticon emoticon

It's like part of you was with us this morning. We figured out a tentative plan for the week while the guys traded stories and practiced "yes, dear."

We're having a quiet, laid back morning so far. It is cloudy and misty outside. The ladies are having a 10am meeting to get organized and form an agenda. We told the men to gather in a huddle and practice saying, "Yes, dear anything you want to do"

This RV park is really nice and for as many RV's as are here, it is very quiet. Jude did a good job picking us a nice place. She also had a nice information packet for each of us as we arrived. Did I mention the park is completely full? In fact, Brenda said they called her on Friday to make sure they were coming as they had people waiting for cancellations.

HI,
I want you to know that I got my deposit back when I canceled. I was surprised. Usually a deposit gets eaten up.

Keep posting It is like that I am with you.

We're about 3 hours out - very happy about the good weather! It would stop raining on the day we leave Casper.

Carol, I'm sure there will lots of pictures:)

Have fun everybody! I'm not there but am very familiar with the sites, so will tag along virtually. It's pouring rain in Mandan/Bismarck ND, and this is the weekend of the Downtowners' Street Fair. I'm bummed for all the vendors, who won't have the sales they expected, and bummed for myself, as it's one of the last 2 events before it gets too cold around here to do anything outside. Tomorrow, I'm going to walk in the Shaggy Shuffle, a fund raiser for the Central Dakota Humane Society, our no-kill shelter. Hope it's not raining then! Wishing you all lots of sunshine and happy times. emoticon emoticon

Sharon.....there is a well stocked store just up the road, but as you can expect the prices are a little high. I stocked up in Rapid, so will just need fresh produce etc. Found Ace hardware and a Napa auto parts if anyone needs those.

We didn't restock wither but should be okay for a couple days. I don't think we are going to have to feed ourselves this weekend knowing my sister in law. She probably has a mountain of food for us as well as the dinner after the wedding so we will look as we come that way. Grocery shopping here (Morris) isn't the best but we could get by if needed.

I just checked my Weatherbug because so many mentioned rain and it says 40% chance of rain Sat & Sun in Custer area. That means there is a 60% chance it won't! We can only hope. Then it looks like no chance of rain again until maybe next weekend.

I still haven't stopped to buy groceries so I will need to go to the store right away. I have food to get us through but nothing to share. Jude, did you find a local store? I thought I'd check and see when we arrive.

The Mammoth Site interests me. I agree there is so much history in this area. We have been to the Devil's Tower and The Little Big Horn Battlefield and they are both great. I don't think anyone will be near them on the way though and they are too far for a day trip. But, there is plenty to see and do that is.

Good morning....

One day closer :)

Little Bighorn is in Eastern Montana, but anyone heading thru there should be sure to stop and see it.

LOTS of history in this area. The Mammoth Site is close enough to see and we found it to be awe inspiring. Minuteman site can be seen on the way to see the Badlands. There is a day trip on a steam train in Hill City, Deadwood is where Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickcock are buried and the bullet holes are still in the wall of the saloon where he was shot.(gunfights in the street daily!) I have all the info for you to check out what you would like to see, with maps of the area. There is tons to see in every direction. Glad you are staying longer Sharon, you will need the time. I picked up a Buffalo Roundup T-shirt yesterday....everyone here is all hyped up about it.

See some of you tomorrow. Have to get out and get the car cleaned out today.
Travel safe everyone.

Eileen, enjoy the wedding and bring some of that good weather with you! We've had 3 days of cold and rain in WY.

Jude, yes, the Little Bighorn battle site and the Minuteman Missile site are both of interest to us. We haven't been to either. Have you been to Hot Springs, where there is supposed to be remains of mammoths? Pete and I are retired history teachers - virtually ANY historical site will be of interest to us! emoticon

Hey gals, we are going to be on the move tomorrow BUT not to SD as of yet:( We will have about a 4 hr. drive to Morris, MN for a family wedding on Sat. Then sometime on Sun. we will start your direction. We are going to be close to the SD border but it will be an overnight on the road Sun. Had a wonderful cool day at the fair and I think I did the sun thing a little TOO much!! Yep, sunshine and 70's with a stiff breeze will do that! I'll live though!! LOL Good to hear some are getting there. Great to have WiFi and Verizon. We are set. Sharon, I am like you. I use WiFi to save on Verizon data. Have had great WiFi here. In fact there is a web cam right outside our door and I would have posted the site but we are behind a tree. If you would have known our truck, you would find us. Otherwise not.
