Day 47 - Nothing to see on a wet day in South Dakota. I stayed in until checkout at 11 and stayed even longer at a gas station down the road. Some locals at the gas station didn’t inspire me with confidence as they said further rain to the East. I mustered up the courage and got lost in the semi-grid like roads of the area. Passing farms, wetlands, and a muddy ‘scenic lookout’ where I almost got stuck, I eventually made it to Sioux City. Until I realised I was supposed to be in Sioux Falls and headed 80 miles in a strong headwind 🤦♂️ Here I met a Native American called Mary Eaglefeather who was kind enough to take me in out of the rain. In her small cosy apartment with her daughter, boyfriend and two grandchildren. Everyone made me feel right at home. I’m truely appreciative of being both allowed to stay given the minimal space, to be out of the rain and even a meal. Thank you for being so generous despite having so little. The couch and shower were amazing and I regret the only photo I have is of a Tina’s giant bag of tobacco 🙄 I can’t wait to find a Pow Wow.
