The Quickest Trip

We had planned to visit Mount Rushmore over the Labor Day weekend but Hurricane Isaac changed our plans.  Since it passed right over our home we thought it would be a good idea to check it out for damage.

We left work Thursday about 5PM and drove to Sioux Falls, SD arriving around 2:30AM.  We got up about 6 and headed for our son's home in Memphis, TN arriving around 10PM.  Saturday morning we got up at 5:00 and by 5:30 were on the road for south MS. 

About noon we got to Gulfport/Diamondhead and checked things out.  Our house survived with minor damage so we headed back to Memphis-another 6 hours on the road.  We arrived around 8PM, spent the night and left at 7:30 AM.

We spent Sunday night in Owatona, MN and drove into Minot at 5PM Monday.

In total we were out of our car for 30 hours over this long weekend.  We were so very glad to arrive home and rest for awhile before we returned to work Turesday.

The following week was a long, weary week but we took the next Saturday completely off and relaxed.  It was such a nice day and we spent the whole day taking it easy.

We are both hoping we never have to make such a rushed trip again.  Not our idea of a swell time but it was good to know everything was fine on the home front.
