We are still in Rapid City. We have some chores to take care of.

Yesterday, we came out of the Black Hills. When we reached Rapid City our brakes were very HOT. I am sure the locals would say – “No Kidding!” There are two big downhills before town.

We were 95% sure that the brakes were okay but . . . There is a Dodge dealership in town that we have dealt with before. We made an appointment for eleven o’clock today. By eleven-thirty, we find out that our brakes are in great shape. For $33.50, we have peace of mind!

Next on our agenda is John’s computer. We bought it in Columbus, Ohio. They gave us a replacement in Columbus, Indiana. He has not been happy with this computer.

At Best Buy, we explain our discontent. The manager agrees to do an exchange. If the new computer costs less, we get the difference in a Best Buy gift card. We are fine with that.

We pick out a new computer. It does NOT have all the bells and whistles the other computer had. It costs less and seems to meet John’s needs. Back at the RV, I set up a computer for the third time this trip.

Next on our agenda is a plan for the next couple of days. This area is in for two days of record heat. My plan to stop at the Badlands National Park and go for a motorcycle ride is out! The forecast for Saturday is one hundred degrees.

Together, we study the map and the weather report. We need to head north. Fortunately, we can do this. Stay tuned.
