Deadwood has seen its share of hard times, too. The famous saloon where Wild Bill was shot is closed up, as is the place that had the train station set up in its basement that we saw two years ago.

On Monday, we drove to a lab in Rapid City to get our blood work done. We discovered this lab a couple of years ago when we were here. It is relatively cheap to get any blood work we want done here as long as we don't include our medical insurances, and they give the results directly to us.
We planned on staying at the Hart Ranch RV Resort in Rapid City for a few days. Weather was nice. We put out all of our slides and set up everything -- including the grill where Jerry grilled chicken that first night. But, the next morning, there was a knock on our door. It was the camp host. Seems that they inadvertently put us in the "no dog" area, and asked us to move to another area of the park. At that point, we decided to pack up everything and move along down the road.
We spent one night in Dickenson, ND, one night in Bismarck, ND (where I went back to see the physician who did my cataract surgery two years ago), and then drove to Fargo, ND. We have been staying out at the farm where Sean (my son) lives since Friday, September 17.

Pat and Bill joined us in Park City for one night, and it was great catching up with them. Pat and I spent a little time in the hot tub at the RV Park.

Park City, Utah is beautiful. We have been here a week and a half, and were planning on leaving tomorrow until we found out that Pat and Bill are traveling this way. It's a small world afterall! They have been to Mississippi and Memphis, and are on their way to Oregon. They should be here tomorrow, so we are staying here a bit longer to meet up with them.
The weather has been very unpredictable -- as high as in the 90s on somedays and down to 33 degrees at night. Some days we feel as if we are in the middle of summer, and the very next day, it will be windy and cold.
