I'm putting a plan to ride this thing. Actually don't need a plan---just go--it's as simple as that !!! I think I'm going to camp and leave my vehicle in Wind Cave National Park--------$9 a nite for old people with the parks pass--it's right on the route---solves my where to park my van problem. They don't do reservations--------I like that. Also-----you guys that live up there-----------I really don't want to camp below 40°----I'm thinking that temps below that are possible that time of year--what do you guys think ????---I know no one can predict the weather for sure---but just a educated guess would make me better informed. Probably start riding around the 10th or 11th. I'm holed up in a tornado shelter right now and ain't coming out till the holiday traffic is over with. Need to talk to my riding buddy---we are either going to do this or the NEBDR. I'm prefering this ride.
