i live 380 miles n.e. of custer, only 25 miles from minnesota border. i live right along I-29. we are going to custer this wknd for wife's family reunion. deadwood/spearfish area is beautiful. i think the drive thru spearfish canyon is one of the prettiest places on earth.My wife and I spent two weeks each summer of 07 and 08 in Custer State park and Deadwood and loved it. Would like to spend the summers there when we retire, and come back home to Texas in the winter.
