Custer State Park
Game Lodge Campground, Custer State Park
What I did
Buffalo, Elk, Mule Deer, Coyote, Turkey
We got here yesterday around 3:30 p.m. On our drive here we left the Badlands behind and entered the grasslands, then rolling grassy hills, then you could see the mountains in the distance and it became horse country. We actually saw a coyote on the field and this time I did get a distant shot of him.
I have decided to sell my photos to help defray the cost of this trip. Here is the pricing:
Blank shots $4.00
Blurred shots $5.00
Windshield, windshield wipers, rear view mirror or screen shots $6.00 (now they are artsy)
"Money" shots (the good to great ones) FREE
Please place your order now for these limited edition photographic prints, and send your check to my offshore account # 123-45678-009
We are inside the State Game Lodge doing our internet work (the summer white house for Calvin Coolidge (is he a distant relative to Koulichkov?????)...I could get a free room possibly - I'll have to check that out. Eisenhower also used this lodge...anyway, I was talking to a lady who works here in the gift shop and she was telling me that she is a full time RV'er and does it all by herself!! She's in her mid 70's I would guess and has done this for 9 years. I asked her if she felt comfortable doing it along and she said yes, then added, I don't need a man, "men are like parking lots, the good ones are taken and the rest are handicapped" I about fell on the floor!!! Keep that one in mind, Ladies...sorry guys!
In the evening at 6:00 p.m. they have a "caravan" tour of the Wildlife Loop with a naturalist and we went along - we were the ONLY ones to go along...we had a great time and saw plenty.It lasted one and 1/2 hours...Buffalo, Mule Deer, a herd of about 75 elk! When the kids get here tonight, they will love this. They also have wild burros that you can actually feed! Didn't see them yet.
So we have plenty of options for tours, theater, dinners, jeep rides off roading in the park and lots of activities for the kids
Nick's brother still in ICU, but seems to be doing better. Still has some issues, but we'll see what happens day by day. Thanks to all of you who emailed us.
Miss you all...come on out!
