Our family loves to take trips. We have gone many places over the years (always within the US). When we were farming we traveled alot in the winter when Jesse wasn't as busy. When self-employed we traveled whenever we felt like it. Now that Jesse is employed he has 8 days off each month...perfect for taking a trip. However, we are limited by finances now. We really miss our trips. With our tax refund we decided to plan a trip to one of our favorite spots...the Black Hills. We are going to do it very cheaply (hopefully gas doesn't go up too much). We will tent camp and visit some inexpensive spots...Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore, Wind Cave, the Badlands. We will bring most of our own food and cook over our George Foreman grill and camp fire. We are going to do this at the end of June. The weather in June is very mild in the Black Hills....low 70's during the day and 50's at night...beautiful!
