Surprisingly, Stugis is a darling little town. The owner of the campground says they have a population of about 4,700 people but that for two weeks in the summer, they swell to about a million. Because this is their 70th anniversary, they may have more than that this year. I can not imagine dealing with that many people. Just the porta potties alone would be too much! They have several businesses that are huge - and just open 2 weeks a year.
If I lived here full time, I believe I'd be putting plywood over my windows, barring the door and heading out of town a week or two before the big rally begins.
We are testing the water-tightness of the tent tonight as we are in the middle of a thunderstorm. Getting a few drips on my computer screen - grrrrr..... Oops - and Arayo has gotten wet from laying against the side of the tent. NOT good signs.
Photo: Arayo wasn't allowed to visit Devil's Tower yesterday. All animals must stay in the car and it was simply too warm for that, so we drove around the outer perimeter.
