Day 23.5: Rushmore II & Change of Plans... Prayers appreciated!

Destination: Rushmore... then TOW TRUCK

Headed out after a rainy start to our day for a return to Rushmore enroute to Badlands & Mitchell SD in a timely manner around 10:00am. Had a great time (more on that later)

Van acted up with the dash lighting-up downhill near Rushmore, then did the same thing after Rushmore as entered Keystone SD.  Got fuel, conferred & decided not to take our chances getting stranded on the hilly 20 mile trip to nearest auto mechanic in Rapid City SD.

Called AAA for a tow & ladies secured Keystone lodging along with kids. Kevin got a lift & complimentary local history & friendly advice from the tow truck driver. Ethan & David are fine with the delay & indoor pool :)

Kevin is in Rapid City SD at a nearby motel awaiting a 7:30am opening of the local Nissan Dealership.

Thankful for God's traveling mercies thus far & we are trusting all the way. King David could write Psalm 103 in the worst of times; it says, "Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me."

Appreciate any & all thoughts & prayers. We'll keep you posted!
