(Black Hawk, SD) Hi 79 Lo 63 -- We had a leisurely morning, then Jim went out to fuel up his truck and pick up a couple items from an RV dealer not far from us.  He came back and did some minor maintenance on the rig, including lubricating the slides and Big Foot levelers. I had to reorganize the refrigerator so things wouldn't come out the door if we have a rough trip tomorrow.

We got everything ready for our move tomorrow, then waited for guests to arrive. This is some story: Our friends Donna and Sam follow our blog from their location in Missouri. They follow another blogger, Phyllis and Len, who we've never met. Donna emailed me the other night and told me Phyllis and Len were in our park. When I checked their blog I found out they have been right beside us for four days and had left that morning. They moved 20 miles from here down near Custer State Park. I emailed Phyllis and they decided to come back here for a visit this afternoon. It's a small world, and now we have new friends to follow in our travels. We love meeting people on the road knowing that it's a good chance we'll see them again. Thank you Phyllis and Len for coming back to meet us. 

The temperature was around 75 when our guests arrived, then it clouded over and the winds picked up. We did quite a bit of rocking and by the time they left it was down to 60 with light rain. The radar didn't even show rain. We closed up the RV and stayed warm. 

We got dinner then watched the NASCAR Nationwide race. Tomorrow morning we'll pull out and head to Wyoming.

FYI: I've added more pictures to the right side of our blog under Highlights in 2012.

That is so incredible that they were parked next to you and neither of you knew it. So glad they came back for a visit - you're right, it's good to meet new friend on the road.

I'm getting the impression it's a small world in Blogland. That's nice and I too hope to meet my blogging friends down the road somewhere someday.

We are currently in the Big Horn National Forest area. Beautiful and cool if you get this far.

That's too funny about Phyl & Len. I think I mentioned to them that were several RV-Dreamers in SD this month, but assumed they knew you already. Glad you could hook up, they are great people!
