My grandma lives in Rapid City, SD and I visit at least once a year to consume way too much choke cherry syrup and apricot jelly, do some fishing, and otherwise kick around the Black Hills. I've had a bike up here a total of two times. Once I did nearly every paved road in the hills on my F650GS. Last year I had my WR250R, but riding got hailed out. This year I've resolved to hit the dirt roads and trails that criss-cross the hills with great vengeance and furious anger. I have only one obligation, and that's to study for the nursing license exam which I'll take on June 23rd. I just graduated with a nursing degree from CU after three-and-a-half years of busting hump. This will be the first summer in four years that I'll have more than a week off from work or school. The mission: fish and ride the Black Hills as much as I can while still passing the exam. It begins!
