Yesterday we took a trip to Chadron, NB to do some shopping. Hot Springs has only two small markets for groceries and a Shopco store for general merchandise. Chadron is our nearest Walmart, at 64 miles and the true super Walmart is in Rapid City and 87 miles away. We found that Chadron has change only a little in the 25 years since I was last there and really offers little for a tourist. Rapid City is a very interesting small city, several times as large as Chadron.

Today has been a bit busy as our summer intern was trying to get away a bit early to go home to eastern SD for the weekend. I helped him out by operationg a mower here in the campground and a few other minor chores. We also had a brief thunderstorm about 5 pm but it was mostly noise and little action. Tonight is Friday the 13th and a full moon, but it looks to be a beautiful evening all the same!
