We spent our second night near Pickstown, SD, and man oh man did that wind blow! It literally rocked our rig for about three hours.

Because we choose to take secondary highways vs the interstate system, an RV parts shop could be a ways down the road!

Our morning of day three was full of promise, weather-wise, as we passed the Fort Randall Dam and reservoir (Missouri River)
