And ladies and gentlemen... THIS is why we love having locals join us for the Mobius trip.

Plus they can find gates that get us out of blind alleys when I get us all jammed up. More on that later.

Super pics Doc !

MT, thanks! I love the history angle to the trips. What Custer did bordered on criminal to both the Indians and his own men !

Anyway, looks like a really nice area Doc. Enjoying the RR very much.

Hey, y'all

Looks like I've got monday off (payback for yesterday), so we're gonna split town for a few days. Not sure about innernet access, but I'll have the big laptop to continue processing photos. Enjoy the weekend & holiday.

The history is interesting. My opinion is probably too political for this RR. I guess you'll have come out here if you want to hear it.

And sadly, I think we would agree, as would most.
