We Must Have Lost Our Mind

to think that we could stock up on supplies

on a Saturday. . .

in the rain. . .oh my word.  Sheer craziness. . .

2014-08-16 2014-08-16 001 001

we had a good plan. . .in theory.

Left Jamestown about 8:30A. . .short 1 1/2 hours to the RV Park in Bismarck. . .

rains weren’t predicted to start til around noon. . .
and last about an hour. . .so all would be well.

Yeah. . .they started about 30 minutes into our drive,

and continued the entire way. . .not bad. ..just dark, gloomy, and drizzly. . .

Hillcrest Acres RV Park is fine. . .

nice long pull through spots. . .30A FHU. ..$30 no discounts

a combination Mobile Home/RV Park. . .but very clean,

very well organized. . .and very, very full. . .

also, easily accessed, and convenient to what we wanted to see. . .

North Dakota State Capitol

The North Dakota State Capitol Building in Bismarck. . .

North Dakota State Capitol 2

they call it the “Skyscraper on the Prairie”

isn’t it sad?  We were just so disappointed. . .

now, I must tell you I borrowed the two pics you see above

from the State Capitol Website. . .because. . .

there was a concert on the Capitol Mall out front

2014-08-16 2014-08-16 001 008

along with all these vendors. . .so my pics are as sad as the Capitol Building. . .

we didn’t get a pic of us in front of it. . .it was raining. . .the wind was blowing. . .boo hoo!

so there ya go. . .but hey. . .we’ve seen it. . .so I can check it off. . .

 

Now. . .on to the stocking up in preparation for our 5 day stay in Medora. . .

where we’ve been told there are no big stores. . .

you know what that means. . .tourist prices,

unless you want to drive 45 minutes to Dickinson. . .

 

wow. . .we remember all over again WHY we HIBERNATE on the weekends. . .

yikes. . .I still have no chicken. . .no hamburger meat. . .NO RICE. . .

very few veggies. . .NO peppers. . .

is it even possible to cook without peppers?

it was just TOO crazy. . .


Instead. . .we have NOW planned a supply stop in Dickinson ND

with the Motor Home. . .yippee. . .we’ll see. . .

if it’s too difficult to access. . .or too crowded. . .

we will just make the drive back later in the day in the Jeep.

 

Craziness. . .we don’t have too many crazy days. . .

but this one certainly qualifies as one of them. . .

 

See you next time in Medora. . .

‘til then,

Janice and Dave
