Sazzad and I are here in Rapid City, SD, and we definitely weren’t disappointed by any lack of beautiful landscape. We passed the Badlands on our way here and whereas Oregon had tons of sheep, South Dakota, has tons of cows.
This morning we went to visit at Northern Hills Training Center. They had a beautiful center and we got a great tour of the facility. I was particularly impressed by their woodshop. Very cool. After discussing various parts of Therap, we then had the opportunity to visit 3 of their group homes and meet some of the folks living there. I have to say that this is one of my favorite parts, meeting the people that are served by these various agencies.

Tomorrow we’re off on a 3 hour drive to Chamberlain… I’m becoming very accustomed to “Helga”, (as Justin calls her), our GPS system, and will miss her when we part.

Signing off :)
