Undecided if we are going, have been going to the Deadwood/Rapid City areas since the 1950's. For the folks that have never been to the Black Hills you are in for a real treat! Make sure that you make it to Mt Rushmore. Depending on which way you are traveling side trips to Devils Tower WY & Little Big Horn Battlefield MT are highly recommended.

Where do you think you will stop after Indy. Maybe we could meet and run the last day into deadwood
LTDThree:D
Did a quick route plan and came up with potential stops in Charles City, Iowa and Wall, South Dakota (on I-90.) What route are you taking? We can always adjust the stops for what works best for everyone. :)

I haven't really made a plan yet. Plan on leaving Saturday and get past Chicago first day. Was looking to get a good day in Sunday so Monday would arrival early afternoon. We are flexible to see what works

Wall is a small town. WALL Drug, you will see signs for it all over I-90. Fun kitschy (sp?) store. But if you get to wall you are only 50 miles from Rapid City.

OK, slight revision to proposed Indy caravan stops - first night at Cedar Rapids, Iowa and second night at Mitchell, South Dakota. Should arrive in Deadwood about 2 p.m. on the 13th.

PS - The Starlite Drive-In Theatre in Mitchell has good reviews! :)
