    Most excellent story.:clap:clap........If anyone gets bored this winter and needs something else to read, Larry McMurtry of Lonesome Dove fame has a series of four novels starting with Sin Killer that follows the lifes of a disfunctional English pioneer family at about the same time period as Sod Busters story. Excellent reading.

    Well done!!

    If any of you guys were wondering, I'm just about positive the road out to Flower Pot is a lease road. There's only one open range road close to town, they really don't start until you get to about Laswell corner. You're damned near on the Z-Bar by then.

    Since Ks. did 911 for all areas a few years ago, it's pretty easy to tell when you're someplace you shouldn't be. Just look for the street signs at a corner.

    I guess I should think about hosting a ride out here sometime. I think I'm about the only ADV'r that lives around here

    Great Story :-)

    We were oout there a couple of weeks ago and I and also pretty sure it is leased. Love to ride out there just let me know we would love to come out and play anytime. I want to bring my son out in the near future for a ride and lunch at Busters.

    Very cool. Is there a way to save this as text only? Minus pictures, screen names, replies, etc. I want to print this out as just the story to share. Thanks.

    i only recently made my 1st visit to Medicine Lodge and saw those incredible hills. this story is new to me and quite an interesting read. i look forward to going back again and spending more time there investigating the hills more closely.
