Our first night on the road in our Leisure Travel Van and I’m exhausted. We left New York a week ago and then settled in with dear, tolerant relatives in Minnesota while we provisioned our vehicle. We had to buy dishes, pans, sheets and linens, plus a million little gadgets to make sure that nothing rocked and rolled as we traveled. And then read all those manuals…
Finally, we left Minneapolis Monday morning and headed west.
We only got 12 miles when the challenges rose up. Warning lights, safety checks and two hours later we were back on the road, headed through Minnesota to South Dakota.
Finally, we were on the road. Flat Minnesota, thousands of acres of corn and soybeans in every direction, with each variety marked by the seed companies that have developed them.
Sunset approaches. We’re hungry, grouchy and the lovely town of Arlington, South Dakota awaits with its grain silos and quiet pond where campers can pitch for the night.
An early morning walk through downtown Arlington, a center of grain storage and transportation.
Listen as Johnny Cash & Lynn Anderson tear it up.
Where we are today.
