Free Ice Water!!
Yesterday's post mentioned our westward ho! sojourn to the Black Hills to visit Flintstone's Bedrock City. But any discussion of the journey would be incomplete without a nod to the Wall Drug signs.
This from Wikipedia:
"Wall Drug has over 500 miles of billboards on Interstate 90, stretching from Minnesota to Billings, Montana. Wall Drug spends an estimated $400,000 on billboard signs every year."
They break up the journey, they're kitschy in a good way, and they almost make you feel like you're a member of the Jode family in "The Grapes of Wrath" only it's not "California or bust", it's "Ice water and Jackalopes or bust!"
Yes, there be jackalopes.
