#16 The Black Hills ~ Coast to Coast

Tate and I leave the Badlands after a 12 night stay, on May 5th, which also happens to be my 33rd birthday. This area in Southwest Dakota though had more to offer to we headed over to the Black Hills National Forest to spend another two weeks, at no cost of course.

In fact Tate and I haven’t paid for a single night stay ANYWHERE on our whole trip so far, which has been about 3 months.

We take the time to hike in the forest, explore the little town of Custer South Dakota, visit Mount Rushmore and head underground as our Patrons requested to see Jewel Cave (the third longest in the world).

We didn’t intend to spend nearly a month in South Dakota but we don’t have a schedule and just go with the flow. We don’t regret it.

We are currently in tow and on our way to Glacier National Park in Montana, albeit slowly it’s still much faster than on Sundowner (who by the way is doing fine sitting in the yard in Panama…Tate and I often reminisce about our sailing life. While we are very much enjoying the RV life we miss our boat and look forward to day when we head back).

See what the forest holds in our cool new video!

#15 The Badlands ~ Coast to Coast

Dani and I made it to the Badlands National Park. We drove down an AWFUL road to make it to an out of the way and free campsite at Sage Creek. This campsite has no hookups but does offer trash cans and toilets which can make life a little bit nicer except for the fact that bison are literally roaming between you and the toilets.

We spent a lot of time here exploring the locale and much of it was focused on observing the diverse and beautiful wildlife and natural landscapes that make the Badlands such a special place.

The weather was interesting, from heat to being snowed on, we endured it all.

The footage from this segment of our journey is heavy on these things and also an attempt at humor towards the end.

#14 Say CHEESE! ~ Coast to Coast

Tate and I finally make it into Wisconsin and spend 4 days exploring the area. We stayed again for free hosted by a wonderful guy named Ernie that we found on Boondockers Welcome. We eat some of the best cheese in the country including a 16 year old cheddar that is to DIE FOR!

We hunt for the Amish in Cashton, Wisconsin which has the highest population of Amish people in the State (Wisconsin having the 4th largest population in the country). We partake of their Delicious bread and Doughnuts…wondering why they are so good, only to find out later they put lard in them. No wonder they are irresistible!

After a good stay in Wisconsin we head West into South Dakota and into the Badlands National Park.

#13 Life on the Road ~ Coast to Coast

Tate and I leave the hills of Kentucky and head towards Wisconsin. We stop in Indiana at a place we found on Boondocker’s Welcome for a bit to rest and explore the town of Lafayette. Also lots of road life.

Check out the new Vlog for an in depth look.

As we continue to travel we are getting into more and more remote places where internet is spotty and hard to get. We’ll reply to comments as possible. Thanks you guys!!
