Today we decided to go into Rapid City to get supplies. After shopping and lunch, we drove up to Hill City. The primary reason for the drive was to check another road to use to get up the mountains with our 5th wheel. Two of the routes to drive to the next camping area have very steep grades of 15% at times. This new road we tried was much better with 10% grades but will add 30 minutes more of drive time. A safer road is alway better than the quickest road.
When we got to Hill City, we stopped at one of the winerys.
Obviously the owners have a sense of humor. They have wines named for interesting characters from the area and some just for the fun of it.
Some of the more interesting names are Gold Digger, Blue Suede Shoes, Red Ass Rhubarb, Deadwood, Poker Face Alice, Wild Bill, Calamity Jane, Phat Hog, Buffaloberry Fusion.
As we were leaving, a tour bus pulled up. It was a very modified VW Van.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
