Idaho 2011, Day 47—Still Headin’ East

Rain continued through part of the night, and we awoke to overcast skies.  Kay really likes the RV park  where we’re camped, Camp America in Salem, SD.  It is an old park, with lots of big trees, nice gravel pull-thru sites, and clean bathrooms and showers.  Because we had a short day today, we prepared a large breakfast, and didn’t depart until after 9 AM.  We continued driving east, through mist and rain, crossing into Minnesota, finally turning south about 40 miles east of Albert Lea, and after just a few miles, entered Iowa.  We arrived at Lichtsinn Motors in Forest City, IA, our camping spot for the night, leveled as best we could, and plugged into their electrical outlet.  Lichtsinn Motors is a Winnebago-Itasca dealer, located only about a mile from the Winnebago factory.  After setting up, we drove around town, amazed that the small town was the location of Waldorf College, formerly a Norwegian Lutheran Christian college.  It is now a small, 4-year liberal arts college.  There are many old stately houses near court square in Forest City, reminding us of Nebraska City, NE.  The Winnebago plant is huge, much bigger than those we saw last year in Elkhart County, IN.  We returned to the RV, watched some TV, ate okay Chinese food for dinner, and went to bed early, wondering what tomorrow will bring.
