The Overflow Lot (Spearfish during Sturgis) by Charles Haacker, on Flickr
In mid-August 2010 we were heading home to Wisconsin, eastbound on I-90 planning to stop in the KOA in Spearfish, SD. Sure, we'd noticed there were what seemed an unusual number of hogs on the highway in both directions but neither of us thought much of it. We didn't have a reservation. Why would we need one?
Well, Sturgis. I seem to recall now we actually tried to get to the Sturgis KOA (we were that ignorant). I think we doubled back to Spearfish near dusk somewhat desperate for a site and the lovely folks there found a spot for us in their overflow lot (the main camp was packed, but so was the overflow). The hike to the facilities was looooong. I actually hung lanterns on Rose (the Tiny Tent Trailer) so we could find our way back.
Daphne was howling with laughter when she got back. She could hardly breathe. She said the ladies' room was jammed to the gills but they were very kind to an old lady and she had no problems. What had her so amused was the sign over the mirrors in the washroom. She never forgot it:
LADIES! IT IS A RALLY! NOT A PROM!

This bunch is straight out of Central Casting for the motorcycle movie. The detail is great, the processing just grungy enough without going too far, plenty of character(s). Nicely caught, nicely done.
