We originally thought it would take 3 days and 2 nights. But despite touring Mt. Rushmore and hiking around Devil’s Tower, we drove the entire 2,200 miles in just 2 days. Thanks for your prayers. Pictures to follow.
We made it to Rapid City earlier than expected. And with the time change in our favor, we decided to go see Mt. Rushmore today instead of tomorrow morning. We already checked in to our hotel and even got an upgraded room. Hopefull, tomorrow will be as good as today.
Emily, Nemo and I departed from Chicago at about 5:45 am. It really did feel like goodbye, although I’m sure the reality of finally leaving Chicago will not hit until later. We’re making good progress dispite the unseasonably cold weather hovering around 38 degrees.
We’re in Rockford now and we’ll hopefully be in Rapid City, South Dakota by sundown. Godspeed to us.
