2016 Out West, Road Trip, South Dakota

Although we don’t travel with an itinerary or a specific planned route, we do have a general route in mind. This time Aberdeen was not in the general plan. But then we learned that Paul, a cousin we hadn’t seen in many a year has just moved to this place. A few text messages and a phone call later we’d modified our plan. We’re now in Melgaard City Park. We first parked in a delightfully shady site but our Progressive Industries Electrical Management System informed us that the 30A circuit we plugged into was low voltage. Oops. Conversations with neighbors, a check of the voltage situation on nearby posts, and a decision to move the camper to a site across from our original one. Thank goodness for the PI black box and for a minimal set up. Now to settle in for some quiet time before our guest is expected later this evening.

Magerøya Island

Magerøya Island

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
