Road trip (1)

Instead of staying home and watching "Somewhere In Time" , Mom, Amy, Kyle, Simone, Felix and I took a trip to South Dakota Sunday afternoon (after "time with Jesus"). Simone's brother flew in from Germany Saturday afternoon and he will be here for 10 days or so. Amy wanted to show them Mt. Rushmore, Crazy horse and Devils Tower so we went. Had a great time and saw the sights and videoed the whole thing and drove a lot of miles on Monday. Haley and Marcus drove their car and followed us and joined in the trip. Had lots of fun. We all have grown fond of Simone and her two year older brother is pretty cool also. Mom, B & Matt and I are going next Saturday with them to Cody and Yellowstone so we get to take Road Trip #2 next weekend. We went to Bear Country (lame name, but way good place) outside of Rapid City. It is a wild animal park that you drive your car through and look at the animals. Elk, lots of wolves, bears, mt. goats, cougars, just about everything we have here in the west. I got some good videos except in the backgrown is Mom and Haley yelling at me to close the window. Course that is the rule, but who plays by the rules? They thought the bears and cougars were going to attack us by jumping in the window. Pretty funny! I admit, I was working it a little and pulling their chain a bit...hee,hee,hee. Anyway, fun stuff and good to be out and about with the fam and friends. They did think it funny when I was driving after seeing Devils tower and saw some wild turkeys on a dirt road and I chased them in the car shooting video through the windshield of these turkys running down the road. Devils Tower is awesome. You guys are awesome...

Way to scare mom and Haley dad! I want to see the video just to hear them yelling at you. Chasing wild turkeys? Sounds fun. I miss you guys!

Glad you guys were able to end up going out there. Sounds like it was fun.
Ditto on seeing that footage! Sounds funny.

I swear I am still totally flummoxed.
But I think I know your hint, so I am going to give random guesses.

I commented on the wrong post. I fixed to the right one, but can't delete it. Why can't I delete it?
