“Telling America’s stories my way from the highway.”

Monday, February 24, 2014

This is Tim and he works at the Bandland’s Travel Stop in South Dakota. He’s a quiet man and so naturally while I was stuck inside waiting for the fuel to top off I chatted with him non-stop. Really, I’m pretty sure I talked with him more in that 10 minutes then all his conversations added up all day.

Tim has lived here a very long time, he said. His favorite thing about living out in the middle of the Badlands is that it’s quiet with a lot of space to enjoy the beautiful country. His least favorite thing is the cold winters and the tornados in the summer. His dad lost 3 sides of his home to a tornado; luckily, Tim as not been in one. But he’s always on the lookout.
