Entering Badlands Natl Park



I had hoped to get some photos of the prairie dog community, but Barley threatened death to all of them so we had to move on. On the dirt road to Scenic SD we came across this rather large bull bison, which Barley hurled threats and insults at. He eventually charged so we beat a hasty retreat...with Barley leaning over the side making rude comments about its mother the entire time!

Here's a question.

Buffalo. How do they respond to traffic?
Emu just seem to race you for a bit hen, when they realise they can't win, try to take you out (sucker);
'roos are totally unpredictable. Except to say they probably wont stay still until the time you try to use that expectation and head for where it is ..now! at which point it will stop dead.
Cattle - depends on whether they are conditioned to traffic, in which case they just don't care but keep doing what they were doing or not, in which case they bolt to the other side of the road, irrespective of anything.
Dogs - should be in ya back yard or on a leash.
Cats? Speed humps So many cats, so few bullets. (here fishies!)

But a buffalo???

How about a moose?

Or a bear?

Whew! Big tatonka!! Maddie has fussed at horses & cows, but we've yet to encounter any un-fenced larger-than-us animals. Yeah, what about buffalo? moose? and bear?

All training immediately vanishes when a small furry critter like a squirrel, rabbit or cat comes to Maddie's attention, and I'm quickly reminded why she is anchored to the floor of the sidecar.

Barley is absolutely fine with domesticated animals like cattle, sheep, chickens and goats. No problem with horses either. But a switch goes off when he sees wild animals no matter how big. Bear, moose, deer, rabbits, squirrels, woodchucks, elk and buffalo. He hates them all.

Gonna get wet!




Dodged major storms for a couple hours today but our luck ran out @ Quemado NM.
Rain doesn't bother me but when lightning was REAL close that made me nervous.



350 miles today, down AZ 191 through Hannigan Meadow.
What a road! Damn near had the whole road to ourselves, hardly any traffic.

Gardens of Stone NP

After leaving Glen Davis, LeighSA & I went across towards Capertee. Down a track into Gardens of Stone NP but only got about 2km. Too steep down to guarantee I'd get back up. Continued on to Ben Bullen and followed Moffitt Trail for about 20km until we reached a hill that was to steep to attempt to climb.

How much does the passenger sitting up as you enter Turn 1 effect the steering? I'd expect you're somewhere around 200+ just before turn in? Or am I being pessimistic?
