I came by this info from someone I talked to on the phone! The Sioux Emprie Fair is the LARGEST FAIR IN SOUTH DAKOTA!!! It's August 7-12 in Sioux Falls. Aha! And we are going to be in SooFoo Aug 10-12. So we might take it in!

Sure beats driving the the RIPOFF Black Hills, wasting gas, paying greedy-ass high prices for a rundown cabin or sleezay motel. Feh! Double feh!!!

SOOFOO HERE WE COME. With our movie crew yet, already.

Wh00pie tie-yii yo Golberg and a bottle of run! We gonna have some funs.

Jim, hope you have a wonderful trip!! I hope you get past the bad feelings about the prices in the Hills though. It's a beautiful vacation destination so it's bound to be higher then this area. As someone who would be trying to sell their house would say, "Location, location, location."

But YES and I'm so glad that you found that. Not long ago I was searching to see who they were having for concerts for the fair, but I didn't remember that it was going to be this soon. They've taken all the fairs and made them earlier then they used to be. Oh, and remember to check out the "Back Porch". It's actually an outside porch setting where they have entertainment. There is no extra fee~it's included in the admission charge.

I'm not sure how familiar you are with Sx. Falls, but do you have plans on visiting Falls Park? It's very pretty. You may want to take a walk along the back side and also take a hike along the Phillips to the Falls.

Another park that's nice and peaceful is Terrace Park. The Washington Pavilion is supposed to be a nice place to visit, too, but we've actually never been there. They used to have an excellent zoo, but it had gone downhill for a few years and my understanding is that it's now a cool place to visit again. If I remember correctly, you are already planning on going to Palisades, right?

Jammie! Oh you da Goombah here, I see. Thanks for the nice, friendly post. We are quite familiar with "SooFoo," as it was called as a nickname from my University of South Dakota waaaaaaay back in the late 50s. We make it to SooFoo/Garretson/Palisades several times a year.

Wife and I LOVE to camp. However our youngest daughter goes along this time, and she's not into camping--only for one night. So we had dumb luck to get a fantastic price on a motel for two nights. And the last night will be camping in the Palisades.

Otherwise, wife & I would have have spent two nights camping and one nite in a motel--just the opposite.

Same deal WOULD have applied to the Black Hills. Camping is the absolute cheapest way to go. Get the SoDak camping sticker. And it's something like $10 a night!!! Heck, we pitch our tent and wander about. And for $10 a night, we'd spend a WEEK in a tent. Then on the way back, we'd stay in good old SooFoo.

We made a movie called TERROR AT OUTLAW CREEK that we shot at the Palisades. Via "movie magic," Split Rock Creek became Outlaw Creek. And we tied-in the Jesse James escape from the posse by jumping across the Bottomless creek gap on horseback. Storyline goes that a couple are pursued by wilderness ghosts. A sequel is planned. Right now, we are finishing up another movie and we have room for a "dream sequence" where the talk about the old wagon wheel tracks in SooFoo. We've already covered other aspects of SooFoo in TAOC.
