As the departure date for this newest (mini) road trip draws near - May 10th, baby - it's becoming more and more real. In three weeks I'll be headed out with every intention of meeting Mark Harmon. Actually, now that I've written that... I'm driving to the middle of nowhere (because lets be honest, it's Oklahoma) to hopefully meet the star of my favorite show. Who does that? Ah well, it's for Charity, right?

Anyway, my route home has changed quite a bit. My dad, jealous of my first and much longer epicroadtripofwin suggested that he fly out to Omaha, we go to the Danish Heritage Museum in Elk Horn, IA (he is Danish afterall) and then take a bit of a detour home via the Badlands National Park and Mt. Rushmore. And since I don't have to be back at work until May 23rd, why not take a few extra days, right?

Here is the most recent and fairly final plan of roadtrip:OKC.

I has a sad that I will miss you on this trip BUT!!! OMG SODAK!!! You really have to go through Hot Springs (Western side of South Dakota) and see the Mammoth Site. It is (or was several years ago) really cool, also, Chinatown under Deadwood is (or was several years ago) really amazing. (both are excavations, the paleontologist and archaeologist attractions are interesting, but that might just be me and my history!geek self that is thrilled by such things.) AND!!! If you are going through Spearfish, stop and feed the fishy!Babies at the hatchery. Much Fun! And then drive throuth that corner of Wyoming and see Devil's Tower. (and very pretty country to drive though around Hulett and Sundance) Be Safe and Have Fun!!! Post lots of Pictures!!!
