    Future home of Lippy's BBQ, former home of the Branched Oak Inn. Village of Malcolm in the Middle of town. The BOI was one of my family's favorite Sunday night dinner spots.

    This dodecagonal ballroom was built in 1938-1939, a spin-off of a WPA project. It's on the National Register of Historic Places, in a honey of a Seward County village.

    You guys that have time to ride in daylight hours definitely have the advantage these days ;) Hopefully I'll have the 3+ hours to spare to nab one of these soon. Oh, and hopefully the weather stays ride-able.

    The flat river meets the longest river in North America. When you grab the tag tell us who camped here.

    Evidently there were a couple of fellows named Lewis and Clark who went by here a few years back. 15123313401892046081058.jpg
    Shilling WMA at the confluence of the Platte and the Big Muddy. Not sure if I like riding through a public hunting area at this time of year, but I survived.

    It's a nice looking building, that houses a one-of-a-kind machine, built back in 1885. If you were unfortunate enough to spend some time here back in the day, you very well may have felt like a rodent caught in a wheel. IMG_20171203_152452794_HDR.jpg

    It is a nice-looking building. I'd say it's arresting.

    I did, but you never know with the crazies out there these days. There were some pretty sketchy characters (not hunters) driving around there today. Maybe good candidates for the last photo...

    I was really wanting to get this one today. Figured out how to get home from work an hour early...but it was in the low 40s, 40 mph winds, and spitting rain...yeah, I wimped out...
