It was so wonderful to exercise - of course, who doesn't love running outside of a random gas station that has 1) really bad water and 2) tapes to the counter all the checks that have bounced there. Hmm...interesting? Right now we are standing outside of a Flying J in Sioux Falls, crowded around the back of Rael's mighty car (which is really, really, really full with stuff-and people...we figure the stuff accounts for at least three more people). In about an hour we will be at our designated crashing spot, then tomorrow we will get up at a reasonable hour and run, shower, and leaveeeeee for Kenosha, WI.
Animals we've seen so far (this occupied our almost complete attention for the first half of the day - and Jill decided she likes antelopes): birds, cows, horses, pony, sheep and ewes, ducks and ducklings, two dead "things", antelope and baby antelopes, Western Meadowlark, live deer, Rachael, live prairie dog, mule deer with a white butt, dead prairie dog, dead deer, border collie named "Skip" (perhaps - we didn't stop and ask actually), colts, 2-D cow and horse (stuck in front of a store), llama, live calf, dead smooshed bird in front of the pump at the gas station, donkey, shadows (we got bored and weren't seeing new animals anymore), herd of llamas, long horn cattle, turtle (live - walking across the road), dead turtle (later on down the road - it wasn't us), and quail.
We saw the corn palace from afar - in Mitchell, SD. Jill hollared out the window (she just got up from a nap and was spazzing). It's a small town - they could see we're from Montana - they'll forgive us. We were looking for an internet area. We found the Shell gas station but they LIED. Their wireless did not work. We tried, in the parking lot.
Memorable quotes: Jill "when you're driving, you drive." Jill "your head (Rael's head blocking the view in the back window) is better than the potato chip bag." Nat "please keep something between your butt and the seat..."
We'll bring you more exciting adventures tomooooooooorrow. Now we go somewhere and sleep.
