We stopped in Rapid City, South Dakota, where they have bronze satues of many of the U.S. presidents on various street corners in the downtown area. My in-laws are here from New Zealand and are currently traveling with us in another motor home. They took our kids down to see Mt. Rushmore, just south of Rapid City. I stayed behind to go to the Bargain Barn Automotive Repair Shop (Have I mentioned it’s a low budget campaign?) to have our tail pipe and muffler replaced… This particular weekend in Rapid City, the Civic Center was displaying a replica of part of the Berlin Wall, a symbol from the Cold War era. We then headed east on Rte. 90 to the South Dakota Air & Speace Museum at Ellsworth Air Force Base. Here, too, were many reminders of the Cold War, and war in general. This included the mamoth B-1B Bomber standing at the entrance of the museum and about 15 other older planes (Corsair II, Skymaster, Thunderstreak, Sabre…) around the periphery. Another of the planes was the same model that dropped the atom bomb on Hiroshima… Just as we were leaving the parking lot of the museum, another motor home pulled up beside us. I struck up a conversation with Tom Sitler, and his wife, from Reading, PA. He said he was recently in Hamburg, PA, doing volunteer work for Advent World, which trains Christian missionary pilots. Tom had done all the wiring for the runway lights there. Note: I recently saw a bumper sticker that read: Who Would Jesus Bomb? Note 2: Another Cold War is currently playing out in the Middle East. The threat of a nuclearized Iran.
