Texas to pick up the trailer undergoing mods/repairs; Bristol Motor Speedway in March; Cherry Blossum Rally in April; Planning stages-New England when things heat up this summer. In the meantime and inbetweentime we can be found at Highland Haven Airstream Park nestled up around the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway near Copper Hill, VA. We hope to see several of you on the road this year. Get those AIR decals on your TVs and Airstreams so we can ID you easily. HAPPY TRAILS

We tend to travel only North and South so this year will be a departure for us. First we will go to see the faces in South Dakota. I have always wanted to visit Mt. Rushmore. Second, we will be taking my Son, his wife and our granddaughter out to Maine to celebrate the tenth anniversary of his through hike of the Appalachia Trail. He will recreate the walk up Mt Katahdin but this time will carry his daughter.
The Maine trip is planned but anyone have tips for South Dakota?

Platte Spring just off FS rd 110 above the South Platte in Colorado. The family sedan has made the trip each year with out damage so I hope to be able to get the Minuet servicable and back to the spring. We like to camp there and hike down to the South Platte below Lake George for some fly fishing. Hope to be able to get out more than once for short trips around Colorado and Wyoming. Get a dry fly wet, shoot a few B&W photos or just watch the clouds go by. Don't need to catch any fish to be happy but hooking into a big brown would be nice.

Glacier National Park...and Yellowstone on the way home.. Our tentative plan is to take the Utah route up and the Colorado-NM route home. We'll also do several weekend road trips to the AZ mountains.

Thanks for the kind words. When you get to the Springs stop by and give one a try.

Spend a night or two in the Badlands. Get a spot at the KOA in Interior SD.
You'll be glad you did.

Second once you see the faces go over and see the new sculpture. I am drawing a blank here, right now. It is of an Indian.

There are some other touristy things there too, Keystone is one. Lots of shops selling a multitude of things.

Walldrug is another thing that comes to mind as well and it is on the way too.

There is a really nice county park just west of the eastern border off I 90. It is called Palisades Park. Very nice place. Grassy sites and full hookups.

There ya go , my .02

Chaplain Kent, post16

Chaplain Kent here are some more comments about S. Dak. I presume you will be travelling west on I-90. Stop in Sioux Falls and visit the park for the falls in the Sioux River. at Mitchell visit the Corn Palace, and if you're a sportsman, Cabella's big store. At Chamberlain get off at the rest stop there on the bluff overlooking the Missouri River. You will note an abrupt change in the terrain, the western boundary of the glaciation is evident. We always said this is where the true West begins. From there on, it is known as the West River Country. Ignore the campground in the Badlands Nat. Mon. in preferance for the KOA at Interior as previously recommended. If you are a history buff, go on south to the site of the Wounded Knee Massacre. If you do that, you can approach the Black Hills from Hot Springs. The first site you will encounter will be the Crazy Horse Monument on your right, which you can see from the road with binoculars and a telephoto lens. Custer State Park has nice campgrounds and a monstrous herd of bison. Wind Cave just south of there is very worthwhile. Watch for the wild asses begging along the road, they are very photogenic. Be careful how you approach Mt. Rushmore. The most scenic route is through several tunnels where The Faces are framed through the tunnels as you travel north. Your motor home may be too tall for the tunnel route. You can park your motor home right at the Mt. Rushmore parking lot. Highways to consider in the area are the Needles Highway, (inquire about your motorhome traversing it), US385 to Lead and Deadwwod. The Homestake Gold Mine is also worthwhile. For some variety on the way home consider US85 scenic drive north into N. Dak. and attend the play at Medora, see the N.D. Badlands, the old Teddy Roosevelt Ranch and on to the International Peace Gardens on the 49th parallel on the way back on a northern route. If you return via I-90 across SD a visit to Rapid City could be interesting. Inquire at the tourist office on interesting places to see. Campgrounds are plentiful. A visit to Ellsworth Air Base Museum is well worth while.

Rather than I-90, try US Route 2 across the northern tier states. Good road, much more like a journey than what you get on the interstate.

In NE

After traveling over 7K last year, we thought we might stay around New England this year. MA for the early spring Chilli Rally, NH for our Wedding Bells Rally (I thin we HAVE to be there), ME for our honeymoon, VT for another rally, NY for the Grey Fox Fetival and then a few trips here in CT. Nothing more than 5 hours away!
