Not much to report today I'm afraid. We headed off to Pierre which is north of Murdo and the capital of South Dakota. It was about 50 miles away through the praries so made for a nice ride.

Our goal>>to visit Wal-Mart...and Pierre was the closest place. We wanted to return our tent and buy a more substantial one - well we returned the tent ok...but couldn't find a better one. We did get some sleeping-bags and more STUFF and now we're ready for camping tomorrow. Only we haven't got a tent yet....

Hmmmm...we went into Pierre (Wal-Mart being slightly out of town) and it was kinda small. We found a hardware store and the lady there told us that Rapid City was much larger and had outdoor equipment stores.

Lunch was in a coffee shop where we managed to get some yummy bagels with fresh meat/salad for not much more than McDs.

Trolled back to Murdo and both fell into a long snooze....beautiful day and we're asleep!

Late afternoon was spent in the hot tub and the pool.

Hey dad
Hope the camping is going well. We went out to last night and ended up in this pub, first song was stairway to heaven followed by freebird so there are still english pubs with decent music! Anyway not much news apart from i got a £25 cheque and a card from the college for the joint second best computing project in the year! Not that impressive but money is money! :D.
