June 13th, 2016. Day 38
Waite Park, MN.
We are at home on the couch with our cat, Archie!
We were up at about 5:30 a.m. and arrived home at 11:00 p.m.
We started out in Sheridan, WY, and drove through with just a few stops, our first being a very early one for gas in Sheridan. All the traffic signals were flashing yellow.
We stopped at a rest area that was dedicated to Lewis and Clark and noticed that there was no mention of Sacajawea. Dave napped for a while. We also stopped at Wall Drug and Stephanie got to see it for the first time.
Lunch was at a Perkins in Mitchell, SD. We got an onion ring that we used as an “anti-” symbol. We listen in on other diner’s conversations.
Since we happened to be in Mitchell, Dave convinced Stephanie to go see the Corn Palace. We talk about the Corn Palace in detail.
East on 90 to Sioux Falls and then 23 up through Minnesota with one stop for beer in Granite Falls so Dave could have a nightcap.
We made good time today with an end mileage of 10,192 miles, 11 states, some of the most beautiful country in America and it is nice to be home.
We talk about some of the highlights of the tour and how we managed to do it on a shoestring. We discuss what we learned and some of our plans for future.
What a tour! Such great people, what beautiful country, amazing food and competitive games of Scrabble!
