  1. The Black Hills and Badlands HOP (The Head Out Program) October 6 – 10, 2020 The Escapees RV Club is offering an amazing set of combination tours for the Black Hills and Badlands. Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Deadwood, Custer State Park, the Presidential Summer White House to former President Calvin Coolidge and Dwight D. Eisenhower, and the surrounding areas are a few of these tours! Mount Rushmore National Memorial contains granite faces carved into the Black Hills depicting U.S. presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. These stately faces are nearly 60 feet high. George Washington’s nose is 21 feet tall, and each of the eyes on Mount Rushmore is about 11 feet wide, with each mouth is about 18 feet wide. The memorial was completed in 1941 under the direction of artist Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln. Located in the middle of America’s heartland, are a wooded and mountainous region called, the Black Hills. The Lakota Sioux tribe called this mountain range Pahá Sápa, or “Hills That Are Black.” From a distance, the hills are dark in appearance with mostly ponderosa pines. On the other hand, the Badlands are a sunny, desert-like area with cliffs and gullies. The Badlands are indeed a testament to the power of the forces of wind and water! Located in the beautiful Black Hills, is Deadwood, founded in 1875, being the location of the last major gold rush in the United States. The booming town gained a reputation as a rough-and-rugged mining camp where Wild Bill Hickok was killed, and Calamity Jane earned her claim to fame. While in Deadwood, you can study the historical narratives of the Native American Lakota tribe and their hunt for the bison. Custer State Park and wildlife preserve is famous for bison, but also has mule deer, white-tailed deer, pronghorns, mountain goats, coyotes, elk and bighorn sheep. Custer State Park has beautiful scenic drives and is one of the nation’s largest state park. Before it’s closing in 2002, this area had the largest and deepest Black Hills gold mine in North America!

  2. We start out at Mount Rushmore. Neither of us have been before. It's a little bit of a shock to realize how commercialized it is. This National Memorial is massive! Carved in the Black Hills of South Dakota this sculpture is about 60 feet tall. Definitely a sight to see! Then we head over to Keystone, SD which a super cool town. We had so much fun with Jason and Rae talking about RV life that it ended up being a 5 hour lunch at Ruby House Restaurant. This was a pretty big deal for us because these guys were a huge inspiration to us when we started full timing. We are both originally from Simi Valley, California and we thought it was so cool to see someone we knew from real life get out there and start RVing. Very inspirational! ***Feel free to subscribe and hit that like button!*** https://www.youtube.com/c/adventureen...
  3. We are in the Black Hills of South Dakota, boondocking for a few nights and doing some hiking. We start off with a hike to the Friendship tower that was created in honor of Theodore Roosevelt. Boondocking in this area is absolutely amazing we are loving the clean air and the beauty. The next day we wake up bight and early to make our hour long drive south to Custer State Park. Its near Mt Rushmore where we end up driving the Needles Hwy to Custer state park. We decide to hike Black Elk Peak formerly know as Harney Peak. The views are endless and it feels great to be back on dirt hiking trails. Hope you enjoy this video! Please feel free to give it a share!
  4. After camping a few days right outside the park we finally venture in, right off the bat we see a large bison. Going further into to the National Park the drive is quite breathtaking. The winding roads, mountains and bright blue skies. We drive through the whole park and end up hiking the Notch Trail, it's short at 1.33 miles but the views are amazing. Back at camp we have an amazing experience with the big horn sheep! They come out of no where and completely surround the whole trailer. Our time at this boondocking spot comes to and end, we carefully take the muddy road out what we call "the secret entrance / exit". It works great and we make it out with no problems, then we have a great drive to our next boondocking spot Northwest of Deadwood South Dakota. Here we plan to hike in Custer State Park, hit Mount Rushmore, visit Deadwood and meet up with friends. Hope you enjoy the vlog, let me know what you think!
  5. Wall Drug Store is one of America's most popular roadside attractions.(Tourist trap) While driving through multiple states the billboards start almost 300 miles away. This drug store has almost anything you can think of, cafe, clothing, supplies, boots, camping gear, magnets and anything that you would see at your typical tourist store. After they abruptly closed their doors Melissa and I discuss what we thought about the experience. The next morning Melissa wakes up nice and early to see an absolutely amazing sunrise. ***Feel free to subscribe and hit that like button!*** https://www.youtube.com/c/adventureen...
  6. We make it to an epic Boondocking spot just outside of Badlands South Dakota! We finish our drive to Badlands national Park (well just outside of the park), before we get there we camp on the Missouri River. We are so excited to be out west again, more Boondocking! The Boondocking spot we land at is just outside Badlands National Park and it's absolutely amazing. Camped on the edge of a cliff, we plan on staying in this location for a week! The roads were quite muddy getting in but, but of course the Ram made it. After we dropped the trailer, of course I had to do a little off roading! ***Feel free to subscribe and hit that like button!*** https://www.youtube.com/c/adventureen...
  7. We are still DRIVING! From New York to South Dakota. Due to some work obligations in California, we need to be home by the end of August. Along the way, we encounter many thunderstorms, get some Starbucks and cheese (I know it's a strange combo). This is not your typical road tripping video! Melissa does jumping jacks to burn off some pent up energy and we enjoy delicious cheese "turds!!" ***Feel free to subscribe and hit that like button!*** https://www.youtube.com/c/adventureen...
  8. Hey Folks! So we had planned to domicile in South Dakota, mainly because we don't have to go back every year to have the vehicles inspected. We got a call from Escapees wanting to confirm that we realized we would have a Texas mailing address and SD residence address. This made us wonder if there was a reason we should choose Texas besides it's Warmer...We just didn't want our travels to have to revolve around a yearly trip to Texas. Input? Ginger
  9. I obtained a quote for insurance from Allied. Does anyone have any experience with this company. If you have recommendations on other insurance companies I would appreciate the assistance.
  10. I haven't been able to find any information on how vehicle registration by weight is calculated in South Dakota. I have a 2014 motorhome Ford V10 22,000 lb Chassis How is South Dakota calculating how much I would pay? I'm trying to find out what my cost will be in South Dakota.
