Sue goes to Sturgis


We went on a road trip with family for nine days and had a blast. It was my parents, Jason's parents, my sister and her boyfriend Jamie, then Jason's aunt Judy and his parent's friend Peter. We flew to Denver, Colorado where my parents picked us up after they drove up in the truck and trailer with the motorcycles aboard. We headed to Sturgis, South Dakota and met up with the rest of the crew, who drove from Virginia and Ohio. In Sturgis we stayed at Buffalo Chip Campground where we camped for three nights. You heard that correct...camped out...literally in a tent! There were thousands of people there and they had concerts there every night. It was so loud at night with all the motorcycles driving by at all hours of the night. I slept like a baby except the last night when it was soooooo windy and rainy early the next morning. For the next five days we traveled by motorcycle and car through South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and back through Colorado. We saw Mt. Rushmore, Devil's Tower, Bear Tooth Pass, Red Lodge, Snake River, Yellowstone National Park, Old Faithful, Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Dubois (thanks to Red Dog from the Outlaw Saloon), Crazy Horse and the Black Hills. Last but not least all the wildlife we got to see on our journeys, such as thousands of Deer, Antelope, Elk and huge Buffalo! The Buffalo were crossing the street in Yellowstone and would stop traffic while they all crossed the road. We had such a good time together and look forward to our next family trip.

I had a grand time being with you all! There is so much to be seen of this great country that I look forward to another trip with everyone. Next time though, Sue will be with us in person. Dad

Carmen, you rock girl, all that with a tummy too. I am inspired, not that I am having more babies. Sue was getting a taste of life with "grannie" and "grandpa". What an adventure. I love the details too. Your mum didn't get around to telling us where you went and who came. When Suuba starts piercing her body, I'll tell her dad you where the inspiration. Keep well.
