The good looking girl in the photo is my copilot and walking buddy, Moxie. We were up before the sun this morning. We went for a long walk. Moxie enjoyed running through the corn fields smelling all the smells. We were back at the RV park before Mary even thought about getting out of bed.
I am still impressed with the RV park we spent the night in. The park is neat and clean;. all necessities are provided; there is a playground, a picnic shelter, and a basketball court; restrooms are clean; each site has a picnic table and full hook-ups; wifi is included in the price. Nightly rates are based on equipment - 30 amp rigs are less than 50 amp rigs. We paid the highest rate - $16 per night. My question is how can this RV park charge $16 and less per night while other RV parks charge as much as $80.00 per night? If this park can make money at $16 per night it seems like investing in an RV park might be a good financial move. If money can be made at $16 per night imagine how much can be made at $80 per night…. just a thought.
It seems like we drove a lot farther and longer today than what we have driven the past two days. We were driving into a head wind and I think that must have made a difference. As far as actual miles and hours, today was a shorter day than the first two. We are both getting tired after three long days driving.
Tonight we are in a Cabela's parking lot in Rapid City, SD. It is a new Cabela's and it is off the beaten path - as of right now we are the only RV parked for the night. This Cabela's has dog kennels, horse stalls, an RV dump and potable water. It is also in a quiet area and the RV spots are in an area away from regular customer parking. We had hoped to get to Rapid City early enough to get the water leak fixed this afternoon, but that did not happen. The leak will be fixed tomorrow morning.
