    yes. we have large, bulbous rocks. we were up there on Mother’s Day, and I thought of you, and wished you could hike around with us, it is so pretty up there!!

    what do I need to know to feed you?

    also, have you looked at those nifty, super light-weight, foldable pots and pans sets you get at camping gear stores? could be useful with all your moving around and camping and traveling, etc!

    There are exactly 824,082 residents living in the great, magnificent state of South Dakota.
    Excuse YOU.
    and….YEAH!!! I’ll definitely be around the 9th and 10th! Maybe the “other” resident Ryan can drive down one of those days to hang out? Bummer we couldn’t make a trip to Mt. Rushmore happen!! C’mon Corbin, I’m home ALL the time, I mean I hardly ever leave the house…and you choose the ONE time I’m about to be out of town. seriously. 😉
    I already got the 10th off work but I’ll take the 9th off too to show you all the AMAZINGLYAWESOMESPECTACULAR things SF has to offer 🙂 And if you’re spending a night or two or whatever, you can certainly bunk with my family, if you’re ok with a blow-up mattress (QUEEN size at that).
    YAY you’ll finally get to see why I brag up SD so much 😉
