Hello again from Douglas, WY
I've seen many Sinclair stations here in the Midwest. I always notice because I remember them so vividly from childhood. Some stations have lost their dinosaurs and some still have them on roof tops. Well, in Douglas, they take them down and saddle them up!
Cold and rainy here today. More of the same tomorrow, so the sightseeing is on hold. I may make the 2-hour run for Gillette tomorrow, depending on how heavy the rain is. That would put me in good position for Devil’s Tower on Tuesday.
I realized last night I was in the wrong camping spot! Boy, was I embarrassed.
|No - not the fairgrounds|
The free camping is at the City Park across the street.
My bad. I thought that was a lot of amenities for free. This is better anyway. No hook-ups but ... it’s a well-tended little park right on the North Platte. I have my own geese and everything.
There is also a dump station, potable water station, restrooms, and showers. All located right next door to the Police station. Score!I’m completely enjoying this day of rest. Since leaving home 11 days ago, I’ve traveled 1,928 miles through 6 states and visited 6 National Park Sites.
So I’m spending the day between rain showers taking care of housekeeping tasks such as dumping the completely full tanks, filling up with water, and organizing my storage bin. Inside, the GDB’s furnace is keeping me nice and toasty. This is one comfortable cocoon!
I’m also catching up on finances, getting my photos in some kind of order, doing a complete crossword, and learning how to upload videos from my phone to YouTube. I’m hoping to post a video of the GDB interior soon.Hope everyone is staying safe from those nasty storms!
