After another night in a motel, we headed out at 11:00 to go to see Mount Rushmore. As we stopped to take our traditional picture in front of the state sign of South Dakota, we happen to run into some super nice biker dudes. We told them were on our way to see Mount Rushmore and they asked if we were stopping in Sturgis. Obviously, we had no idea what they were talking about so they proceeded to tell us its the largest biker rally in the world and its only 20 minutes away & it happens to be on the way to Mount Rushmore.
While having a beer in One-eyed Jacks Saloon, we got persuaded to take a quick job handing out flyers for $30 plus they’d let us keep the t-shirts that we had to wear. Which was perfect because that $30 was going to pay for our camping equipment for the night.
But far more interested than the bikes, were the people we got to see.
First is the worst, second is the best but third is the one with the treasure chest.
After seeing the monument, we continued our drive to Chicago. We had 16 hours to drive and we were planning on camping outside under the stars with a fire to keep us warm. Well that
did not work out as planned since we couldn’t just sleep on the side of the road. So we slept in the car in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn. I was sleeping in the back of the car when we passed into Minnesota, so Katie snapped this quick picture for me at 3:00am.
