From Sparta, WI

We are finally in our home state again. Tomorrow night, we’ll be home!

We got up this morning and it was overcast but still warm. Not long after, we saw one flash of lightning and had some rain, but that was it for the rest of the day.
This is how buggy the front of our RV was before we got it washed.
This is how clean it was after we went through the truck wash. Unfortunately, that didn’t last long.
I tried to get a picture of the “Welcome to Minnesota” sign as we pulled off at the rest stop, but this one was clearer.
In Minnesota, we saw a lot of wind farms and at least 4 dead deer alongside the highway.

We never did see a “Welcome to Wisconsin” sign, but this was the last 3 1/2 miles of Minnesota.

We had gotten off the highway and headed about 17 miles north of it to our campground for the night. We passed a temperature board that said it was 77 degrees out, and this was around 7:45 in the evening!

The sun was just setting as we pulled into our campground for tonight — Whiskey Creek Family RV Park.

This is the third day since we visited Mt Rushmore and I’m having a lot of lower back and spinal pain. We stopped at a Walmart on our way here today and by the time we got back to the RV, I could barely move. I knew that my lower back was hurting as we left Mt Rushmore, but I thought it was just from being on my feet so much that day. I didn’t fall so I’m not sure what I did. I’m trying to figure out if I can get a chiropractic appointment when we get home. Nothing I’ve tried so far seems to be helping.
