Left Herrick in the AM after it was nice and clear.



My knowledge of South Dakota prior to visiting consisted of one story that sort of summed up my experience there (though not nearly as traumatic). A good guy I used to work with grew up in SD and when I had asked him what it was like he said, "lots of fighting and drinking on the weekends." And then a couple months later he went back for a wedding. Turns out the reception consisted of 'barbecued pork served wrapped up in newspaper" and "each guest was given a bottle of Wild Turkey" when they arrived. In the end, they all ended up sleeping in cars that were on the property.



And so whereas there are trampolines in every front yard in mormon country, almost every house in SD has 5-10 old, wrecked cars outside. Seems a little absurd, but then again, when a car breaks down around here there aren't any car repair shops, nor is there anyone to sell a junker to. So they just rot....
