Folks - sad news … I have decided not to go to Deadwood, SD. In between thinking about the expense and driving the distance, I just decided that I wasn't up for it. Hope you all have a safe trip and I will be looking forward to seeing any pictures that you post!

I'm leaving Iowa City (south of Cedar Rapids) on Sunday morning and will be staying at the Thunderbird Lodge in Mitchell. Check out the Corn Palace (open til 9pm).

I plan on taking a detour through the Badlands and stopping at Wall Drug for lunch on Monday. It's only another 90 miles to Deadwood.

Drive smart

Make sure you count the wall drug signs on i-90. Gives you something to do. Supposed to be one on the moon (You won't be able to count that one.)

Route change.
(1) Richmond, VA to Dayton, OH. Nephew in New Lebanon has a cup of coffee & a bunk with our name on it.
(2) Dayton, OH to Cedar Rapids, IO "Hook up for a caravan to Deadwood" "3LUG" needs the company.
(3) Mitchell, SD to Deadwood, SD

Now to get the reservations done. I will try to use the ones other are using.
Thanks folks, a caravan does sound better.

The "Indy" group will be departing from McDonald's in Crawfordsville, IN (exit 34 on I-74) around 11 am on Saturday. About 5 hours (plus stops) to Cedar Rapids from there. :)

With 3LUG at 50k miles, I had her brake lines & engine flushed, front rotors & pads replaced, oil changed and this past Monday I received the XM radio for the trip. We were ready. However, an immediate family member has caused us to cancel this trip due to a medical emergency. I have made contact with Tom and he was very, very supported. If this happens next year, 3LUG & I hope to be part of a bucket list item of ours. Be safe and enjoy the event.
