    ... to flow just as I saw flashing lights coming slowly down the road. Through the raindrops I could see that it was the Park Ranger. I could hear muffled sounds of a loudspeaker so I cracked the window open just an inch. "Please calmly get into your vehicles and move to the Visitors Center. Do not stay to pack your gear." Seriously? Is this really happening? My next concern was how to open the window flap on the truck without it blowing off the hinges. I grabbed my ...

    ... great heroes also. Korczak, a sculpture with no formal training, started work on the mountain in 1948 with only $174 to his name. He made it his life's work to build this tribute to the Indians and what he did was truly inspiring. He worked on it until he died in 1982 and following this his family carried on his work based off plans that he left for them. They still have a long way to go and I don't think it will be finished ...

So this was quite nerve-wracking for me, and I didn't exceed 25mph for quite a while. ...

    ... supplied by coal from directly across the road from a pit mine that had a coal face that looked to be at least 60-80 feet deep. They run unit trains of 125 to 150 cars, which hold at least 200 tons apiece, out of the Basin 60-80 times a day. Trains were parked everywhere...either moving or waiting for an open track. We lived in both Eastern Kentucky and West Virginia for several years, and John was in the truck industry there, primarily ...

    Riding in the Black Hills

    A travel blog entry by eveandgreg on Jul 05, 2014


    ... Well, they're not called Black HILLS for nothing. We rode 47 miles with 3000 feet of climbing, starting at over 5000 ft. And, it was hot. However, it was just gorgeous, and we got to eat a lot! Nothing like what the Tour de France riders were doing that day - 12000 ft. of climbing in over 100 miles at double our speed. We had a great visit with Pam and ...
