Means by No Means

South Dakota is in my “final four.” By that, I mean it will be one of the last four states I visit in my quest to travel to all 50. My wife and I have already mapped out a possible route for that trip, which won’t happen until 2011. My missing states are prominent on my personal radar, so naturally I was excited to receive an email the other day with the subject line: “In South Dakota.”

The email was from Dave and Melanie, a couple I met a year and a half ago at the See’s Candies kiosk at West Town Mall. They landed a Workamper job for the summer in the Black Hills. They also raved about the Rafter J Bar Ranch, where they are staying.

When their summer job ends, Dave and Melanie will move on to Kansas for a one-month gig with After that, they hope to work at a See’s kiosk somewhere in the southwest.

Knowing I would be interested, Dave and Melanie sent along several photos of their trip to South Dakota. Here are some bison at Custer State Park and, of course, Mount Rushmore.
