    Spent almost a week in SD with the family this past week. We needed a little family vacation so we loaded up the trailer and the Tacoma and drove and drove. We camped one night near Martin's Cove, Wyoming on the way up and then camped in the Black Hills near Mount Rushmore while we were there.

    I'm not going to write some long trip report but we visited Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, and Custer State Park. Along with Martin's Cove and Independence Rock in Wyoming. All I can say was the scenery was fantastic! This was the first legit camping trip with the new RTT. Worked out great to have the 4 kids sleep in the annex and my wife at I in the main tent area.

    Also made some recent changes to the trailer with a rear swingout, some extra lights, a bracket for a camp table, and the adjustable height tent rack. Everything on the trailer worked flawlessly and each new addition helps out a little more.

    so here's a major pic dump. Hope you enjoy.

    The rest are from Custer State Park. Anyone who goes should drive the Needles Highway, the Wildlife Loop and the Iron Mountain Road. Some of the best, most scenic driving roads in the country as far as I'm concerned.

    Looks like an awesome trip. Brings back lots of memories from visiting the grandparents. Haven't been back in years. Thanks for sharing!

    Some small things, still building it.
    Perfect. The kids will remember that forever. I still remember all the trips camping I took with my family and now I have my own we will do the same.

    ^That is sweet, reminds me of when we used to put lawn chairs in the back of my grandpa's chevy with a topper on it. Your version looks much safer :D

    I love riding the needles and Iron Mountain on my bike, tons of fun. There's also lots of forest service roads we like to explore around Rapid City. Great part of the country to live in, I'm hoping to stick around after I graduate
