A warner than usual weekend had me saying the hell with skiing and getting the bikes out. saturday was less then impressive as the Q2's on the CBR just didn't seem to hook up on the frosty roads in the hills. Better than not ridin at all, but it coull dbe better. So, Sunday I decided the Adventure would be more fun. Since the Hills were icy, I headed for the praire. I realize this isn't a proper ST ride, but you take what you can get at this time of year. I headed east on Hwy 44 to Farmingdale (aka Railroad Buttes OHV area). The trails were dry anbd traction was good so I headed East towards the Cheyenne River.

Several miles of this and I was lost

I tried to get to the top of this butte, but failed

had to settle for this one as a lookout

ended up lost more than once, but all in all a good day

the above opinion is simply that of an average middle aged hick with one too many brain injuries... or, don't take it too serious.

How in the world is it warmer up there than it is way down here in Mississippi?

Cool pictures by the way.  Looks like a fun ride.

LOL... no, I forgot my GPS Rolleyes  it's easy to find, about 15-20 miles E. of Rapid on Hwy 44 to Farmingdale. Head South at the Country Corner store and go 3-5 miles, you will see a big lot with a bunch of trails. I went East that ride tomorrow I will check out the West half Smile
