Mitchell, South Dakota
We left Camp Fontanelle, NE this morning shortly after 8 and traveled north 218 miles to Mitchell arriving 12:20 pm.
Our time at Camp Fontanlle was a busy one. I worked mostly as Leonard's "gofer" as he installed 3 toilets in rest rooms, tiled and grouted floors, shored up a "bridge" and steps that overlook the camps corn maze, installed 6 florescent light fixtures, did plumbing on sinks, and installed a new vanity and sink and reinstalled a toilet in the camp directors home. Our fellow NOMADS were a pleasure to work with as was the camp director.
But now it is time to just chill out and sight see for the next several weeks.
We plan on spending 10 days at this campground. While here we need to register to vote and get Len's address corrected on his SD drivers license.
When we arrived earlier today there were but 3 sites filled. Since that time at least 20 sites are full. There are 40 level grassy sites in this campground, each with a picnic table and amble room between. We are facing the pool. Even though it is in the 60's there are children out there splashing around and having a good time. The mother is sitting on a pool chair watching and wearing long pants and a heavy sweater. I can understand that!
The only drawback to this campground is we can see the roof top of a Cabelas. For those of you who know what a Cabelas is, you understand. However, we are also close to a DQ and Ruby Tuesday. They also have great free Wifi. I see my Mobile wifi would be on roaming and I don't want to go there. Therefore, both Len and I are okay with this campground.
Now I need to catch up on what's going on in the lives of my fellow bloggers.
