"So last week was too hot and the week before was too cold," Anakin said. "So I've picked the geographic center of the United States today. Welcome to Belle Fourche, South Dakota, where it's going to be 93 degrees today--or 34, depending on which thermometer you can understand. We'll...find something to do."

Oh, you poor children.

Oh, Pinkie was on this. Dances were a certified party activity, and Pinkie excelled at anything party related. Plus, she had energy to spare, so all the jumping and kicking? Total breeze.

Getting there without accidentally running into anything on the motorcycle was slightly trickier, but she managed it in a minimum of pieces. . . .

Honestly, that Merrill did an almost halfway decent job pulling off the dance was an accident more than anything. She hadn't exactly been paying a whole lot of attention.

The same could be said of her motorcycle trip over. Which would have been massively shudder-inducing to anyone looking on, and how she'd managed not to crash despite her number of close calls would be a mystery for the ages.

Ahsoka was pretty good at climbing and sneaking if she did say so herself. Though she did have to get her comm out to look up which president was which.

... Yeah Jason didn't rock climb or rappel so much as jump, but. He did it without being seen, so? Whatever. it worked.

Jyn was good at being sneaky, so she went with Rushmore. Except that it was in the middle of summer and there were lots of tourist looking at the mountain. Still, she did OK until she had to run from the park rangers. Fortunately she was good at evading capture, too.

Khadgar was a lot less afraid of heights than he was of dancing, so between that and his magic, he climbed up to Rushmore with little trouble.

Remembering which president was which, on the other hand, took a few tries, but he eventually got it.

Kaylin was far too distracted talking to a new group of people (and learning some new and interesting ways to swear) to focus much on the dancing. Once she'd finally gotten to that part and focused on it she did just fine.

Pinkie got a little bit distracted taking pictures with the jackalope. She may have ended up with several dozen photos with it. As for her tacky kitsch. . . .

Well, Anakin might want to wonder where she was going to put five different "Where the HECK is Wall Drug?" bumper stickers she'd purchased.

Merrill fell off the jackalope, because of course she did, but what really tripped her up was trying to figure out ten different tourists' cameras and how they worked. (Suffice to say it took her a while to get to 10, because several people gave up and asked someone else to take their picture instead.)

And whoops, was that souvenir purchase supposed to be tacky? Because the prairie dog plush was so cute, she couldn't help it.

Ahsoka took a long time in the gift shop. A looooooooooong time.

This... wasn't the worst? He managed to finish the challenges fairly quickly, and made a mental note to pop back to the tourist shop after and pick up some crappy gifts for his teammates back in Angel Grove. Because he loved them.

Jyn had seen a lot of tacky places in her life, but this one was up there.

But she enjoyed eating some of the donuts she helped fry up.

Considering how many times he fell off the jackalope, the hunting permit seemed like a fitting purchase to Khadgar.

By the time Kaylin even got to Wall Drug most of her classmates had left. Still, she did her thing and headed out cheerfully. Of course her reading skills still weren't the best, so she bought the taffy thinking that's what tacky was.

Pinkie showed off four "Where the HECK is Wall Drug?" bumper stickers.

The fifth was . . . somewhere. Possibly in an embarrassing spot on Anakin's vehicle or person. Or maybe not. I mean, it wasn't like a small pink girl could sneak up and plaster a bumper sticker on the back of a renown jedi, was it?

Merrill was just cuddling the prairie dog plush by the time she showed up. Coming in close to last didn't even bother her any more by now.

Ahsoka tossed Anakin a small tub of moustache wax. Because of course she did.

Hopefully Anakin enjoyed the brass ornament extolling the amazing things to see in... Wisconsin?

What? Nowhere in the rules did it say the purchase had to be South-Dakota-themed.

"This tacky enough?" Jyn said, holding out her purchase.

She was wondering how she was going to bring up "Oh, by the way, do you have any thoughts on where I could find an Imperial kyber refinery planet? No reason." in conversation.
