    I camped at Cheney Lake when I was doing my post-Navy celebration long motorcycle trip. Big thunderstorms around that night. Thanks for the memory!

    Looks like the perfect area to enjoy the AT. Where exactly are the sand breaks anyway? Possibly around the Republican river area? Looks like a beautifully desolate area to just get away and treasure some solitude.

    This is where the final scene of the movie Castaway was shot.

    You are correct as it is around the Republican river valley. The Breaks or also known as the Arikaree Breaks are located in the northwest corner of Kansas, south west corner of Nebraska, and the north east corner (or close to the corner ) of Colorado. The AT works great here as I think there are more unpaved roads than paved roads :lol3

    Here is a shot from the 3 corner area
