We finally arrived back at River Walk, “our” campground in Coeur d’Alene. Just a year ago we were here for Amy’s graduation, our oldest granddaughter, and now we are here for the Trev’s, our oldest grandson. It’s amazing how fast time has passed and the grandkids are already graduating from high school.
Leaving the campground in Rapid City was almost more exciting than we had wanted. The last 2 days while we were there were rained like hell and unfortunately made the soil all around our motor home really soft. We had no more than started our turn out of the site and the right rear duels started to sink into the grass. You could immediately feel that things weren’t looking so good. Fortunately for us, I was able to back out of the hole and get another start forward. It was a go slow and as straight as possible until we got up enough momentum to carry us forward and out of the trouble area. We stopped by the office to apologize only to find out that it was an “expected” happening after a rain…hell, they could have warned us… Oh well, we made it. The rest of the trip West through the remainder of South Dakota, Northeastern Wyoming, and across Montana was uneventful.
