safety notice

Please read this as it could save your life.

We were camping at Moondance Jam in Walker, MN in July 2021. Our Class A camper was parked next to a camper that had a generator set outside. Little did we know the generators exhaust was directed towards our camper. Our slides were open and the exhaust had gotten into our camper. We were awakened by the CO2 detector going off.

If you have slides open and there is a generator next to your camper, make sure that their exhaust is not directed toward you camper.

This could have ended tragically if we did not have that CO2 detector.

We had our neighbors reposition the exhaust outward, away from our camper.

Please share this information with your camping friends. It could save their life.

Safe Camping to all.

2021 22 kill-one tribe foundation

22 Kill started in 2013. It was created to bring awareness of the high rate of veterans and first responders who commit suicide, an average of 22 per day. We attended this event which raised funds to assist with counseling and resources various individuals need.

It was a great turn out for a great cause. you can find out more about this organization by visiting their website:

2021 sturgis, SOUTH DAKOTA


Gypsy and Lonestar visit Sturgis for the first the ever. What an experience.

1000’s of motorcycles lined the streets.

From steel horses to real horses. The Budweiser Clydesdales made an appearance.

There is so much to do while in Sturgis. I t can take hours walking around checking out all the motorcycles, some of which are very unique. Stores line the streets filled with all kinds of biker gear. There are also many restaurants/bars.

One very unique place we visited was the Motorcycle Museum. From antiques to modern day motorcycles, this is where you got to see them.

We were fortunate enough to meet Senator Dave Zien. He is an avid motorcycle rider with 119 world records, 11,000 miles in 31 days and 113,800 miles in one year.

He was in a very bad accident where he lost his left leg. And yes, he still rides. It was really great to meet him and hear him share some of his over-the-road stories.

2021 katmandu campground, sturgis, SD

There are many different campgrounds around the Sturgis area. Katmandu is one of the more quiet campgrounds. If you want to have a somewhat quieter place to cap.


There is a food wagon with a limited menu. but the food is quite good. There are outside shelters with picnic tables to enjoy your meal and hang with friends.

Game room


Outside bar


There is a bus available to rides back and forth to downtown Sturgis for those who want to party hard and keep the roads safe.

We definitely recommend this campground which is only available during Sturgis Bike Week. If you want to book this campground you need to secure your spot way before Bike Week,
