If you are in a hotel, insist on parking at the front door overnight!

At least they didn't give him the banhammer in here . Easy for me to stay out of the sub-basement; I'm either too smart to go in there or not smart enough.

Well done.

Just spent five minutes in there. Now I want to scratch my own eyes out.

Previously, I would not have thought it possible, but it turns out that you CAN ride the Platte River. At least, from the Hwy 92 bridge (east of Yutan) to the Hwy 64 bridge (west of Valley).

It's plenty sandy, wet and crazy in spots, but after about the first 15 minutes I figured out what to do and what to avoid.

So where are the pix??


Years ago, rode from around Bader Mem Park to RR bridge at Phillips back to Hwy 92 at Clarks and back.

On my way home from the Omaha triathlon yesterday (hauled race officials on the bike course on the strom), I was wondering if that would be possible. In fact, I was thinking that as I crossed the Yutan bridge


Do you think a crappy rider like me could pull it off?

You got knobbies on your DRZ, then it's possible. Just gotta move enough sand/dirt to keep in motion.

Air down!
