. . . South Dakota!

Gzzz! What a cliffhanger that was. Someone almost dropped their phone while blogging yesterday in the school house. The SEND button got hit in the mishap and there was no going back. Thank goodness the teacher wasn't in. But anyway the gentlemen we met have a very big place in South Dakota where they grow many grains and have hundreds of cattle. I hope we are able to take them up on their invite one day. Afterwards we bumped into a few friends we hadn't seen in years. It was really great catching up with them.

On Saturday night the park treated us to a really nice dinner and afterwards we had a lovely campfire that Tim set up for everyone. One of the teens who attended this event even brought out some marsh mellows. Later we realized our skewers had been cleaned by Roxy who had joined us fireside. Sunday came and went so fast that we barely had time to do anything other than our volunteer chores . . . school in the morning then the Partin house for the afternoon shift. Tim and I learn something new and amazing about the local history here every year we come and we enjoy being able to be a part of this event. We have departed Ft. Christmas for now and hope to begin finalizing the big road trip for this summer.

Good times . . .

Every year that we come to this event it just gets better. It's so nice to see old friends and meet new ones. We've been invited to stay on a 13,000 acre grain ranch in

Was when this school was built. Tim & I got to work in here and at the lunch room next door this morning. The weather is wonderful. This evening we will have a dinner cooked for us by the park. Then we have a big campfire gathering planned for later. A total of 19 Airstreams are here in our group. We will be back at the school house tomorrow ... Hoping not to get kicked out like last year.

Phewwwww . . .

I made it. We are at our annual work rally at Ft. Christmas. Tim arrived earlier today and I just got here from work. I will come in each evening until the weekend. This will be our 4th year participating. I can't wait for the weekend to get here.
