We get up and have breakfast. Rick tries to find a solenoid for John’s car but with no luck. So we stay behind the rest of the group and drive with John and Nancy. He needs to hot-wire it every time he needs to start it.
However the theme of the day is WIND, CORN, and HAY! And more of the same for 228 miles.
Meanwhile the wind is making us see what life on the prairie is all about. There are no trees or mountains to help buffer it. I knew there was a reason I love living in the mountains!
I am truly amazed how big the Missouri River is.
We make a stop for lunch in Yankton at JoDean’s Restaurant. We are the last ones to come in. It is a buffet. I like the decor.
We go onto the Gavin’s Point Dam and the Lewis and Clark Visitor’s Center.
We go through the Lewis and Clark Museum and watch a good movie on their expedition.
We get to Vermillion our home for the night. Rick again tries to find parts for John with no luck. However he is successful in helping Bill with his brakes with parts he brought.
We all enjoy a long “happy-hour” and then hit the sack.
