We made it to Rapid City last night and slept at our favorite truck parking area. This morning we began our search for a good campsite.
We decided that it might be worth trying a more established campground. My reactivity is starting to go down and we figured there was a good chance that I’d be able to keep healing at a campground as long as I stay away from the dump station and any moldy RVs.
First we tried a place just outside of town but I didn’t feel that good about it and it was quite expensive. Next we decided to head into the Black Hills National Forest and look for a place to camp there.
We found a great campsite! It was raining so there weren’t a lot of other campers around either. Hooray!
Brett went into the building and reserved a spot for us that was as far away as possible from the RV dump station. Yippee! The best part? They have running water and power hookups! So exciting!
It takes a long time for the battery to charge with just the solar panels though and the heating mats drain the battery pretty quickly. Being at a campsite with power hookups means we can run the heating mats all night and you all know how much I hate the cold! Not to mention we can plug our Goal Zero in directly and charge it up must faster than with the solar panels alone. Especially on a rainy day like today.
And running water? What a miracle! It’s so convenient! I can just fill our laundry buckets straight from the tap! Imagine that?! 🙂
