"What's that smell?" I sweetly asked my honey on the drive today...."It must be the brakes, I've had to lean on them pretty hard driving through this pass just this last stretch." "Oh--I wondered what that was!" And I'm also wondering, do we have any brakes left? Is there any smoke coming out of the Honda being towed in the back? Did I forget to release the parking brake? Is there smoke coming out of the wheels on the motorhome? No, no, and I never put the parking brake on the CRV in the first place so I WON'T forget to release it, and-- no. Whew! But I did keep checking the rear camera for a few more minutes looking for smoke! However, the brake smell went away quickly, and I went back to my crafting....
We made it safely to Sundance, WY...And NOT the Sundance Robert Redford is famous for, just so you ladies know...Boy, is that showing my age! Robert Redford is getting OLD and you don't hear much about him any more....We are at the Mountain View RV Park and Campground in Sundance, WY. The rate for this park is 16.00+ a night (Passport America). And we just happened to get a site right next to our friends, Sherry and David Boyd! (In the Direction of Our Dreams) We'll be here a total of two days. This park is a no frills park as far as sites. Fairly close together...They have a very small swimming pool which was still open (!), laundry, game room, hot showers, propane fill, wireless internet which was very speedy, 30/50 amp sites and some pull thrus. Our Verizon air card worked very well, AT & T phones were full bars and no problems.
There are lots of attractions here in the area--Devil's Tower, for one (the famous rock/cliff that was in the sci-fi movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Other points of interest are the Vore Buffalo Jump, (where native Americas herded the buffalo into a deep pit to slay the buffalo) Warren Peak fire tower, Deadwood (old historical western town), and Spearfish Canyon. We are only going to be here one more day, so won't be able to see much. We mainly stopped by to see Sherry and David. Sherry is behaving herself and staying off her ankle as much as possible. David is doing a good job of attending to her needs and she is managing to do some activities despite the ankle.
Today is a very foggy day, we're socked in....looks like a "take it easy" day. Tomorrow we leave for Custer!
