Finally, a day off together

We had some fun today by looking for Agate beds that have Fairburn Agates. These beautiful stones are getting quite scarce and therefor valuable. Unfortunately, we aren’t sure exactly what the raw stones look like. We have a few friends who do, so we’ll get educated this week before our next trip across dirt roads and through creeks and ruts that challenge our 2 wheel drive Santa Fe. It was a lot of fun though and we took Charley with us. Then we went to Custer, SD to have some awesome fresh fruit pie at the Purple Pie Company. With Blue Bunny ice cream!! Too good!

This was our first Saturday off together in quite some time and we made the most of it. We’re about five weeks away from leaving Hart Ranch and heading South to Benson, AZ via Amarillo, TX. Oh, we do have Hitch Itch!
