Als ich wisse das Morgen der Erde enden wuerde, immernoch wurd ich mein Apfelbaum pflanzen.

Even if I knew the world would perish tomorrow, I would still plant my apple tree. - Martin Luther

"Factory work's easier on the back, and I don't mind it, understand, but a man becomes what he does. Got to watch that. That's why I keep at farmin' although the crops haven't ever throve. It's the doin' that's important." Madison Wheeler in Blue Highways by William Least Heat Moon

Last Stop - De Smet - Little House on the Prairie

Although we made one more stop (at Indiana Dunes National Seashore - which was a bust and not worth writing about), our last fantastic memory stop was in DeSmet, SD.  We had planned to spend time at both the living history park set on the old Ingalls homestead, and in town.  However, the kids enjoyed the living history park so much that we wound up spending all of our time there.  Even though the drive to DeSmet is long, and there is little to see on the way, it is a not to be missed stop for Little House fans.  The owners are friendly and helpful, the history program is active and engaging, and the campground was clean and peaceful.  A+ in our travel book.  We'll be back.  It was a fantastic end to our trip.

Hay twist

The Woodsman is obsessed with The Long Winter.
He wanted to make hay just so he could have hay twists in case he ran out of wood.
