Courtney and I decided we don't want our first day to be over a 12 hour drive so we are going to leave a day earlier (well rather just an evening earlier) we are going to just drive 3 hours the first night and stay in Sioux Falls, SD. We are staying at Marriott locations so it is at a discounted rate. Anyway, here is our updated itenerary:
7/13—Home to Sioux Falls, SD (Residence Inn)= 174 miles approx 2 hours and 43 min

7/16—Dad’s during day. Go to Grandma King’s in evening = 175 miles approx. 2 hours 50 min
