    I-90 SD Exit 170 KOA

    September 3, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    We like this KOA better than the big KOAs.

    To get here, we passed through the Cottonwood National Grasslands that we had missed when we went thru the Badlands last year. Absolutely breathtaking!

    Toward the end of the drive, the weather was really building in front of us. Heather was driving like a fiend while I was calling out regular updates from the radar app and we finally caught it. Taught those bugs splattered all over the windshield a lesson, too. She has a future ahead of her as a storm chaser.

    This KOA is on a small lake with lots of water fowl. It is about 90 degrees, but there is a nice breeze that makes it feel more like 80.

    We are sitting out, enjoying the breeze and bird calls, anticipating the pieces of cherry and coconut cream pie from Marlin’s Truck Stop that await us in the cooler.

    50's Diner in a train

    September 4, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    We stopped in for coffee to go before we hit the road, and expected maybe a diner in a railway car. But this was the whole train. Complete with a waitress who was probably serving coffee when this train plied the rails across the country. We resisted the caramel topped sweet rolls. Too sticky.Read more
