Location:

Six states now and that’ll hold for a while, as we work our way back to New Mexico. First, though it’s off to Denver and the APPA Annual conference. We broke up the Sioux Falls to Denver trip into three legs: to Gretna, Platte, and then Denver, or rather, Cherry Creek State Park

Mileage:    
3,775

Location:    
Sioux Falls KOA
Sioux Falls, SD

ElizaBeth was great about wanting me to continue to teach APPA Supervisor’s Toolkit, as was CAPPA, and we had planned for one at South Dakota State University since January. We wanted a really good park since she would be by herself during the day, and we had to go to Sioux Falls – but it was worth it. I drove to Brookings each day.

Mileage:    
3,426

Location:    
Rapid City RV Park
Rapid City, SD

Five states slept in now! Because this stop was over the 4th of July, we made these reservations so far in advance that somehow I had it in my mind that we were staying at KOA. We went there, and they didn’t have a reservation for us, so I looked it up. OOOPS! Wrong park. Like always, it worked out for the best, Rapid City RV Park was on top of the ridge overlooking the city and afforded a great view of the city and area.

Santa Fe and a return to New Mexico

Location:    
Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground
Santa Fe, NM

We had several errands to tend to in the nation’s oldest capital city, and we were excited to be back in New Mexico. We had originally hoped to route through Las Cruces but just didn’t have enough time to get from Point, TX to Santa Fe, NM to make that work. We’ve pretty much decided that 200-250 miles per day is our range.
