Day 23 July 11 Lusk WY to Hot Springs SD

Lusk WY to Hot Springs SD 93 miles, 2800' climbing

Look Familiar to pictures in previous posts?

Alright! Leaving WY and now in SD

Jim, Valery, Stirling and Pierce Swore treating us to blizzards in Hot Springs.

 Jim, an attourney inspired by 9/11/2001, gave up his practice and joined the  Army  (unit 4/27) and served in Baghdad Iraq.  He was deployed shortly after Stirling was born.

Jim and his son Pierce met us outside Hot Springs and led us into town (Stirling had a flat tire and couldnt make it)

We are hosted at Joe Allens Campground. Dave checking out the saddles

Olivia, center, works for Chamber of commerce and arranged for our greeting. She then met us at Joe Allen's Campground where Joe Grilled hamburgers and bratwurst, and Qlivia made dinner for us.

Thanks Olivia for all the planning and arrangements you made for us, as well as entertaining us!
