We made it to Medora in time for the musical. We had a great time as a family despite having to leave our car in Columbus to get it fixed. The Medora Musical is truly something for the entire family. They invited the children 12 and under to join some of the dancers on the stage and do an impromptu dance performance. The featured magician and world’s fastest balloon artist wowed the audience and two random children from the audience helped out with the show. An amazing fun experience. The show this year featured game shows my generation grew up with set to country music trivia and good old-fashioned dancing, singing, and comedy. The musical reminded me when I was a kid watching the Hee Haw Country Variety Show mixed with a little Lawrence Welk, a country western concert, some historical patriotism of Walt Disney, and to top it off sprinkled with a little flamboyancy of a Broadway musical.
After the show, we returned to the Lodge near Dickinson to rest up for the night. We got up with a slow start the next morning before we toured the Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the Enchanted Highway. More on that later. The Lodge is part of the Double JJ Outfitters in Dickinson, North Dakota. They specialize in pheasant hunts and have hunting package available. The Lodge was amazing and the hunting décor was great for any hunting enthusiast. My wife and son weren’t as excited as I was about the décor, but the accommodations were great, which we all loved and appreciated. The Lodge is available to rent through AirBnB between hunting seasons, and when not entertaining a hunting expedition. It’s large enough to accommodate a nice size family reunion and will definitely be kept on my list of places to stay in the future.
