    Sioux Falls

    June 27, 2017 in the United States

    The kids are back out on the air pillow, jumping with their new friends. We packed up around noon and headed into the city of Sioux Falls. While here we took a trolley ride, saw the falls, went to a free museum about WWI, and saw a smithfield factory. While walking in the city a pick up truck pulled over suddenly and a man, in a suit, asked if we were from Sioux falls. The kids were nervous. It turns out he is the Mayor of Sioux Falls and liked to say "hi" to families. He gave Josh his business card. Jodi of course looked it up on the internet to confirm. While walking back to Sioux Falls Park there is a sculpture walk. After a few hours there, back in the RV headed to Wall, SD.Read more

    Green Giant and Jellystone

    June 26, 2017 in the United States

    Our goal was South Dakota today. On our way we had a pit stop at Blue Earth to see the green giant. It was nice driving and it amazed us how many wind turbines there are. Next we took a little detour to Iowa (just to say we have been there). Tonight we get to stay at Jellystone campground. It is much smaller than the last campground, but still has a lot to do. The kids love the pool and giant jumping pillow. Riann and Jodi had a blast playing tether ball. Josh made some new friends.Read more

    Sioux Falls

    July 7, 2017 in the United States

    Day five: The next step is Sioux Falls. On the way we had lunch at our first diner and found my hometown (see the photo below). After an 4 hrs ride we arrived exploring the Falls Park and visiting some churches. We also met our first Indians that recommended a campground for us to stay. The funny thing about that is that this is a campground for famillies with children 🙈 And - really strange - they celebrate christmas in July. (As joke because the kids cannot wait for it 🎅).
    We got very kindly neighbours so we hanged with them on their campfire eating marshmallows. 🍢
    Stay tuned!

    Tag 13/ Badlands Nationalpark

    July 18, 2017 in the United States

    Heute ging es 634 km weiter in die Stadt Sioux Falls in South Dakota. Auf dem Weg haben wir zwei Fotostops in dem Badlands Nationalpark gemacht. Dieser Park besticht durch seine Kalksteinformationen. Leider hatten wir kein Glück mit der Tierwelt dort da es auch ziemlich heiß war. Zum Mittagessen gab es dann einen Buffalo- Burger, der ziemlich lecker war.

    Morgen verbringen wir den ganzen Tag im Bus und es geht weiter nach Chicago.Read more

    Sioux Falls, South Dakota

    March 30, 2015 in the United States

    Now the scenery became somewhat monotonous, as prairies can be. There were a lot of trains hauling coal and oil. We stopped at one scenic rest area along the Missouri River. It seems that rattlesnakes aren't limited to Arizona, so I walked no further. The temperature has ranged from 34 C in Scottsdale to 18 C in Sioux Falls, with a forecast high of 18 C in Fargo! Perfect driving conditions. This was our longest day of driving.....643 miles (1035 km), 10 hours. JS finally allowed me to drive for a couple of hours until he got bored being a passenger. 460 miles (740 km) to go! Total distance travelled since December 30th.....12,868 km.Read more

    Time to head home....

    August 8, 2017 in the United States

    We have officially started home now with longer travel days and shorter stops along the way. Our first stop was to see the wood carvings done by a chainsaw carver in Keystone, SD. He was a very talented guy with beautiful carvings that we wished we could have afforded. Next stop was at Wall Drugstore in Wall, South Dakota. Though we were advised to keep driving, we had to see it at least once. The hundreds of billboards we similar to Pedro's South of the Border signs on the east coast. Interesting store but we can continue driving next time. The same was true with our next stop in Mitchell, South Dakota at the Corn Palace. We're seen it once and that's enough. It had many huge pictures all made out of corn cobs... over 275,000 to be exact. Not a stop we'll need to make again but interesting. We ended our day stopping for the night in Sioux Falls, SD. They have done a nice job with their Park along the falls. The falls were small in comparison to the beautiful ones we saw in Oregon but obviously a token of pride for the people of Sioux Falls.Read more
