May 2001 in South Dakota and Buffalo, NY

I had to travel to South Dakota for a training class for work so I decided to visit my good online buddy Penny while I was there.  I got to meet her Mom and travel around just a bit before going up to Brookings for my class.  After my class was over, Penny and I flew together to Buffalo, New York for a gathering of some of my other online buddies.  I met a bunch of great folks and got to visit Niagara Falls and Buffalo.  Of course, I was able to eat some yummy Buffalo Wings while there and even got to participate in an authentic Buffalo Fish Fry!
