Texas to South Dakota accomplished

I have arrived!! I left Fort Worth after the movers cleared out our house about 6:30 PM on Wed., 6/8, and drove to Oklahoma City for the night. Then yesterday (our wedding anniversary) I drove the remainder of the 1110 miles and arrived in Rapid City about 8:00 PM (MDT). The fence folks are finally able to begin putting in the dog fence that we ordered in April. It's been so rainy that the test fence post hole that they had drilled has had standing water in it. It's still wet, having rained again last night, but they can at least begin on the uphill fenceline area.


  1. Lynn,

    Just read your blog, and wanted to welcome you to Rapid City. What brings you to the area? I am a relatively inexperienced (3 years), but avid birder. I've been here for 10 years, having come from Philadelphia. There are a small number avid birders here in the area. Contact me, and I'll be happy to arrange for you to meet some of us. The birding here is pretty good - I just saw a fairly rare Yellow-crowned Night-Heron about a week ago in Pennington County.

    Again, welcome.

  2. Welcome to South Dakota! As Dick said, there is a small but avid group of birders in the Black Hills and South Dakota. Also, a few bird organizations around, such as a new branch office of Rocky Mountain Bird Organization in Rapid City. So hope you will join us when you get settled in!
