iawolfpack,I'm in the same boat,we have done 5-800 mi. which is relatively little compared to what I estimate to be 3000+, this time. Only things I can think of are obvious,change oil,and air filter,crawl under TV inspect everything ! Pack tools air compressor,check jack,spare tires....idk, ?
We are still on schedule,DW will be traveling north to Port Clinton,for a family grad party,on the 9th,I plan to roll on the 10th,and hope to make mid Iowa on first day.
I still have not made res.in black hills area.hope to have enough $ to stay at rafter j,I won't know until first wk o June, I have invoices out for jobs completed,just depends when they are payed. Had security installed in house this wk.hopefully some peace o mind. Hope we (all of us)have Happy Camping !

[QUOTE=Oakman;384314]Here are a couple of pics of Crazy Horse that I took in 2009. It probably doesn't look much different today. Construction has been s-l-o-w.

We were there in the mid '90s... it doesn't look a whole lot different now than it did then! You wonder if the sculptors might age out - then who would take over the job. Apparently the tribe sponsoring this must not have a casino, with oodles of money rolling in! LOL

OK a question maybe someone here can answer. We are scheduled to pull out of the Rushmore area Sunday morning and have not been to the Badlands. We could take that route home and spend a couple hours but are not sure we will be able see much while towing the TT. I assume there are many overlooks but am wondering if they are accommodating to towing vehicle? I would hate to get there and only see sights through the vehicle windows. We could possibly stay in that area for a night which we are considering doing. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Hey we are just on the west side of Mitchell overnighting tonight too. The badlands was a great drive and easily maneuverable towing the TT. Plenty of spacious parking lots to park and check out the overlooks. An awesome sight there.
