Another great week in the Black Hills of South Dakota!! RvAmericanDream is spending another week at Heartland Ranch Campground and the music is great. The Friday Nighters play every Friday during the summer season and it is always a good time. It is great to be around other people that love America and are proud to sing about it. Greg Johnson sings Proud to be an American with the Friday Nighters in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

The difference in weather we experience across the country is incredible. Traveling across 45 states in 4 years we have seen it all. The storms in North Dakota present with an amazing light show. Medora, North Dakota near the Theodore Roosevelt National Forest is an amazing place to spend some time in the summer. Last night I was able to catch an incoming storm and the lightning was incredible.

Buffalo Close Encounter Custer State Park

Surprises abound at Custer State Park in South Dakota!! We have been looking for the buffalo for two weeks and finally they showed up and took over. The rules are clear, do not approach the buffalo, but if the buffalo are all over the road and the ranger is asking you to drive through them then getting close is expected. We took some great video. And my daughter learned a little about holding the phone in landscape mode when recording. Enjoy!! We have more great videos on the way!!

Independence Day 2021

We celebrate our independence by living our dream, our RV American Dream. Showing our children this amazing country and meeting people from all over the world is inspiring them to chase their own dreams.

We have been staying at Heartland RV Park Every Friday and Saturday they have live music. This song was sung by Greg Johnson and the Friday Nighters on July 2, 2021 at Heartland RV Park. We highly recommend a night or two here. They do a great job and the location is fantastic!!

Get out and celebrate your independence, this last years has been a clear example of how fragile it is.

Happy Independence Day!!

Aurora Around America Ep. 17

We spent some time in the Fort Myers / Punta Gorda area of Florida over the winter. Aurora wanted to try something new and we found a great beginners quilting class at the White Daisy Quilting Shop. It was a brand new business to the area and Cheryl was excited to take Aurora on as a student. I have posted a link to the Quilt shop and class Aurora took.

We stayed in Auburndale, FL at the Cabana Club Rv Resort. Right next-door is the Elite Cable Park. It offered the kids a chance to try some water sports and they jumped at the opportunity.

Fall 2020 we took a drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway. Finally drove past Craggy Gardens, we always stop and hike it, and ended up at Mount Mitchell. What a drive! Beautiful colors, great overlooks, amazing blue sky, it was the perfect day. This is about 2 hours of GoPro 8 video edited down to 5 minutes. It was tough to choose. Enjoy!!

We also hiked Mount Mitchell and that will be in another video soon!! Here is a quick video we took at the top.

Friends joined us this week and we were able to reconnect with their family. We hiked Catawba Falls near Black Mountain, NC and showed them all about what we are doing in North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains. It was a fantastic couple of days.

Life changes and we have been spending a longer time in the same place. With all of us busy during the day it is nice to find a quick get away for a couple of hours. Soco Falls and Waterrock Knob are two hikes within 30 minutes of our campground. Both are great for their own reasons.

Summer cools fast in the mountains and we wanted to get one more swimming day in before the cooler temps. Sliding Rock and Looking Glass Waterfall in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the Pisgah Highway would provide a great end to summer.
