IMG_1848IMG_1849A very exciting stay at Camp Horizons. We arrived Monday, May 13th and the 14th was planned to be a very busy day. First, off to the bank to get cashier’s checks for the Ford dealership here in Junction City and another for Pennington County South Dakota to pay for taxes and registration. We picked up our new Ford F550 Super Duty from Dick Edwards Ford with a Utility Bodywerks hauler body. Our biggest challenges over the next 4 days was to:

-transfer everything out of the F450
-clean the old dear and get her ready for her new owners
-pack the F550 with it’s new gear and test as much of the new systems as possible, air ride, hitch, camera monitor, backup sensor, backup camera
- put on 500 miles to break in the engine before we could start towing a heavy load.

That weekend, a strong line of thunderstorms came through Saturday night, heavy rain and some hail. We had put the new truck into an empty service bay to keep it safe and spent the evening watching the radar on our iPhones (as we could not get any TV reception).

One of the major disappointments of the visit to Junction City, was learning that Senior Tequila had closed!!! This was Lynn’s favorite margarita stop. There was a new mexican restaurant near the Walmart, but more flash than substance.

The 10 days in Junction City broke down like this:
