we survived!

The Sturgis rally has officially ended. We were really hopping at work all week but things should return to "normal" now. Here are a couple of pics I took of our main parking area during the rally.

I had to get a picture of this rig that came through our gates the other day. I guess I would classify this as a "fixer upper". :-)

The pictures don't show it but when the guy drove off the motorhome was actually going up the hill sideways, kind of a Class C Crabwalk! The tags were from Florida, I'm not sure if it is up for the trip back home though. :-)

Rudee and I took another ride into the town of Sturgis on Monday and was amazed at how quickly the bikes disappeared. Most of the vendors had left and the few remaining were finishing packing up. Last week we had to get in a 30 mile line of bikes to ride from Hill City to Sturgis. We made the same ride again today and only met a handful of other vehicles. :-)

We are attending a pitch in meal with some other participants of the RV Dreams Forum at one of the resorts near here this evening. Should be a fun time meeting other full timers and work campers. I'll keep you posted.


  1. Sounds like you guys had a good time with all the other 'guys' :) Must be amazing how fast they all scatter home. Have fun with other Dreamers too!

  2. Wow that was the Class C. I've seen bad, but not THAT bad.
    Glad you survived it. The furthest we ventured out was Sundance, and there were even rows of bikes on the streets there. We waited until after the rally to make our escape for SD, since our escape route was at Spearfish. We are heading up the 85 today into ND.

  3. Last year Kathy and I saw a C-class in Michigan that had cargo straps hooked on the front bumper over the top and attached to the rear bumper to keep it from hitting the road. The one you just showed looks in better shape. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  4. They say you can see it all at Sturgis!!

  5. Wow that fixer upper could use alot of work. I've never seen a C-class that looked like it needed quite as much. Sounds like you had fun though!
