2019 Summer Western Trip

June 27, 2019: We spent the night at the Fort Lincoln State Park near Bismarck, ND. Our campsite is less than stellar. A thunderstorm rolled through again in the wee hours and our campsite has lots of mud puddles. I am not sure why we seem to always get assigned to what seem to be some of the worst campsites, but we have decided that in the future we are not going to accept it. There are plenty of empty very nice campsites here that we could have had.

Our trailer is surrounded by mud puddles—breaking camp is going to be a mess.

Yesterday evening we visited the infantry post on top of the hill. The CCC several years ago rebuilt the blockhouses and foundation corners of many of the buildings. Several skirmishes with the Indians were fought here back in the 1870s.

Our campsite

We plan to visit the Custer House this morning before departing for the Enchanted Highway and then spend a night or two at the Theodore Roosevelt National Park at Medora, ND. We have been on the road now for eight days and every stop has been one night. It’s time to spend at least a couple of nights in the same place.

World’s largest gonads. Sorry, I couldn’t resist this. 🤪👀😜
