Rest and Chief Crazy Horse

Custer, United States

The rest in Colorado was good. Glad we did that! When we checked into the room the AC wasn't working even after an hour so Dad called the front desk and they sent a man to take care of it. He looked at it a while and said - It's dead. So they moved us to the room next door. That was nice. This morning at about 5 Honey woke Dan up to go for a walk and he was trying to hurry but the door wouldn't open. He called the front desk and no one answered. He tried again and finally the "lady" answered and Dan told her we were locked in our room and she told him, no, those locks can't lock you your room. They're new. The conversation did not go well but finally she came up to check, and oh my! It didn't work! Dad went out the window to take Honey for a walk while I finished my shower and got ready and waited for the maintenance person to come. She finally came at about 6:30 and she told Dad that he must have done something wrong and these locks don't lock people in and her machine could open it if, on the off chance, she couldn't do it. Well, guess what, she couldn't do it. And neither could her little machine. She ripped the thing apart and still couldn't get it to work. These locks were new enough that the guy that installed them was still there so she got him and he came and ripped it even more apart and got us out. We left within about 1 minute. It was good to go!

We stopped to see the ruts left in the stone from the wagons going across the Oregon trail. We saw the big chief statue. I took a nap and now Dan just went out to get us some salads. Honey has been sooooooo good! What an awesome service dog! :)

Oh wow. What an interesting hotel experience. I'm glad dad was able to get out of the window. Yay for ground level rooms.
