Dawn. you guys have a safe trip. And yep we can do Martini's on Saturday. Look forward to it. See you there. Robin
Hey guys!!!

Only one day left for some of you guys!! Keep in mind-check in is by 5, or call and do late check in. The resort is supposed to have your name and sites so just say you are with the SD Egg Rally, and give your name...you should be all set.

They told me that there will be $1.16 tax per night-I apologize, this is new, and I will cover it for anyone that has heartburn about it...I would understand if you do. Don't give it to the resort...we can straighten out this weekend. They tried to go up to $22.50 plus tax...a change in management since the rally was scheduled...and I have talked repeatly with them so they will honor the $21-but tax is not negotiable...to them.

Looks like they will be busy this weekend, the roundup is bringing people out. If you want to book seats on their bus, it is $22 per person, cc reserved. Their phone no. is 605-399-2582.
For me, and 4 people, $88 is too much for a half hour drive. BUT, remember, there is a $15 charge for a week's pass into Custer State park. Maybe we can ride/drive together? I have a suburban which seats 6...anyone is welcome to ride.

Mt. Rushmore has no entrance fee, but has a $10 parking fee-
Crazy horse does have an entrance fee, it is privately ran-don't know what it is.
Bear country, if it is still open is $55
Reptile Garden is across the street from the turn off of Mt rushmore road...fees somewhat reasonable.

Does everyone have directions? it is apprx. 3-4 mi off of Mt. Rushmore rd. It is NOT the campground right off of Mt. rushmore rd across from Reptile gardens. However, the turn for it is there. I think that resort is happy holidays CG-if you turn like you are going into it, but parallel it to the end of the little road, make a left, then you will make a left just passed this little restaurant and supposedly a B &B that is forsale...(very close to Mt. Rushmore rd-(which is hwy 16 I think) There is a sign for Hart ranch at that turn.

You will go down a little country rd, you will pass condos, hart ranch golf course, and then will see Hart Ranch Camping resort on the right. (Turn) follow that road, it will turn to the left, and then stay to the left into the resort.

Please PLEASE call the resort if you are going to come in after 5pm- They will have packets for you. If you come in Thursday, you will probably get there before me- But CALL ME if you have any questions about anything. If you need my phone number, PM me or leave a message here on the thread. I will check prior to going to bed tonight.

Pam

For our meal contributions, Sharon & I, and Jim (Connie unfortunately is unable to attend) will bring a pasta hot dish, and 3 pecan pies. Steaks sound great!

We're looking forward to our time with you. Roundup sounds like great fun from what I've read on the internet.
Pasta and Pecan Pies...sounds Yummy!!!

Thanks for the well wishes, Robin! I'm looking forward to a Martini! Pam, I PM'd you for camp site 334. If you didn't get the message please let me know, otherwise, as I said before, any site will work for us just fine

Any recommendations from people on where we might want to stay in or near Sioux Falls, SD?

We look forward to meeting you all on Saturday.
Dawn

Palisades State Park at Garretson is very nice. Exit 410 off I-90. We have stayed at the KOA in Sioux Falls several years ago and it is okay, but expensive as is Yogi Bear. Tower Campground in the middle of town is awful. Don't have any information on the Sioux Empire Fair Campground, but it has low ratings in a national directory.

We are so sorry to have missed the South Dakota gathering. Will be with you in spirit if not in body.
Maybe next year!

Thanks Pam! Extra blankie's! Same here in Colorado this week.

Everyone have a safe journey to the rally. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Orlen, I think I am gonna go up 25 to Lusk exit then over into SD (mapquest it and that seems to be the best direction) We will see! Some friends of mine just came down from that area last week and they said 85 was full of road work. So I will try this direction, see you guys soon.

Vivian, Sorry you won't be joining us, but hopefully next year.

Woooooo Hoooooooo! It was a great time in South Dakota, what a beautiful area to have a rally. Saw some great fiberglass as well as some wonderful sites! Enjoyed meeting everyone! Orlen please post your pic's of the rally. Of course I forgot my camera ( so not unusual! ).



Hope everyone had/has a safe journey home.

Pam, thanks for hosting all of us. Hart Ranch is a beautiful place. How did the trailer do going home?


Bryan, So did you make it home in time to play the volleyball game?

Haha, I was scheduled to play at 6:30 PM and we rolled in to the parking lot (with trailer still, right from the road) at 6:29. It was perfect! The trailer was fine going home. We had a really strong tailwind so I was able to put in a lower gear and really make up some time.

I also had a great time. I was really impressed with all that there was to do in the area and my wife absolutely loved the camper. That was a big deal since she wasn't too hot on me buying it in the first place. We're already planning our next weekend a little closer to home.

Thanks to Pam and Robin for organizing and especially to Pam for allowing us to share Hart Ranch with you. What a great place. I really enjoyed checking out everyone's eggs while we were there. Thank you to everyone for making Eli's fifth birthday special. At the end of the day on Saturday we asked him what his favorite part of the day was and he said he liked the carrot cake the most! "It didn't even taste like carrots!"
