Well I guess if you like t-shirts and stuff. The best time to go is at the end of the rally. You can pick up all kinds of vendor stuff for nothin.

I was through Jackson and Blue Earth a couple weeks ago too. Only I was on my way to Sioux Falls to help my parents move. Jackson and Blue Earth are only a hop skip and jump from home. Small world...

LR, did you see any hail? A pal who went said his tent was shredded and his SO went to the clinic after getting blitzed by ice chunks the size of baseballs. Real "Wrath of God" stuff; even a travel trailer was wrecked.

A co-worker was out there(originally from Spearfish) and he said the hail was monstrous and totally several vehicles. I'm pretty happy I missed that this year. In a year or two when the kids a bit older I'd like to go back to the Black Hills.

I was sitting in Minnesota when the hail hit. We left that morning. Good thing!

Default Great Ride

It takes a huge pair to sit on a giant rabbit let alone be photographed on it. Then again it's good you had some proof of what you saw. Is it possible you shared this evidence with officer freindly and he thought it better to just let you ride on? Hats off to you. Great ride story.

That's not a rabbit. It's a jackalope.

I was going to say that too, but I figured you guys needed the post count.

Default No such thing

Gentlemen, we all know there is no such thing as a Jackalope. It is obvious the horns were added to disguise one of the many giant Rabbits roaming the US. Most riders would have been high sided within seconds of mounting the beast. It is amazing you were able to stay on as long as you did.
