On our campground

Well we survived the storm power kept going off through the night so we then got woken up as the fridge bleeps if the power is off so in the end switched it to gas. It is a lot cooler today drove to Manhatten a town about 35 miles away lovely scenic route. First thing this morning Wal noticed one of the tyres was down so took it into a tyre repair place quite amusing place it was like going back in time loads of old men sat about chatting, we stood there for ages waiting for somebody to help us eventually got it sorted, but it was fate going there today as I noticed a poster about a Rodeo that was on tonight had we not gone in there we would not have known about it.

So off to the Rodeo at 4.30pm it went on all evening & it was outside, we were frozen by the time we left at 10.45pm but it was worth it, it was brilliant some great photos. One poor cowboy ended up injured by a bull got taken away in an ambulance.
