From Rapid City Journal
Growing up, the Thune kids always looked forward to our family’s South Dakota road trips. I have fond memories of piling into the family car and jumping on old Highway 16 for long tours across the state. I remember being excited to see the Badlands and to roll into Rapid City as we headed west, and recall the excitement of pulling up to Al’s Oasis heading east, agonizing over what type of pie to have.
