To Pierre, SD

My intention was to spend a second night in Aberdeen. But I didn't reserve my room or inform the proprietor I wanted two nights... I had thought I would just breeze in and fetch another room. When I arrived back in Aberdeen about 8:30 pm, I discovered The hotel was booked up. I went to another hotel. it too was booked up... Every hotel in Aberdeen was filled to the brim, and there was not a space for me anywhere in town. Why was this? Was there a Shiner's convention? No such luck.... I discovered that there was a new ginormous Walmart store having its grand opening the next day and people have literally come from miles around and booked every spare room in the city so they could be there first thing in the morning. Every town has its attractions. the giant pheasant of Huron, South Dakota

Allrighty then, I'll just go to the next town and get a room there... the next town with a hotel was 45 miles away. They had two or three hotels, all were filled. Hmmm still the Walmart thing? Ya gotta wonder. Another 45 miles and I found a town with a spare room.The next morning I woke up in Huron, South Dakota. I looked out of the window and was confronted by the World's Largest Pheasant.

It really was the worlds largest pheasant. At least that is what the sign claimed... sitting there on top of a building the morning sun glancing off of it. As I mentioned in paragraph one, every town has its attractions and clearly, the highlight of Huron, South Dakota was this giant bird.
