    So you guys wanted history, how about the oldest archiological site in North America!!!

    The site was excavated from 1973 until 1978 by a University of Pittsburgh team led by James M. Adovasio. Radiocarbon dates from the site indicated occupancy as early as 16,000 years ago and possibly as long as 19,000 years ago. The "Clovis First" camp has tried to dispute the age of the findings, but generally their efforts have been dismissed.<SUP class="noprint Template-Fact">[citation needed]</SUP> Although the dates are still controversial to some, archaeologists familiar with evidence from the site agree that Xxxxxxxxxxx was used by Native Americans in the pre-Clovis era, and as such, provides evidence for very early human habitation of the Americas. In fact, if the 19,000 years ago dating is correct, Xxxxxxxxxxxx Xxxxxxxxxxx is the oldest known Native American cultural site. Seeing as the site fails Hayne's criteria for dating Paleoindian sites in the Americas as the site could potentially have been contaminated by natural carbon at the site the age of 19,000 years could be significantly older than the real age.<SUP class="noprint Template-Fact">[citation needed]</SUP>
    Xxxxxxxxxxx Xxxxxxxxxxx has yielded Woodland, Archaic and Paleoindian remains, indicating evidence of the processing of animals, such as deer, elk, bird eggs, and mussels; as well as plants such as corn, squash, fruits, nuts and seeds. The site also has yielded many tools, including ceramics, bifaces, biface fragments, lamellar blades, a lanceolate projectile point and chipping debris. At least one basin-shaped hearth was reused over time.
    It was given the name Mxxxxxxxxxxx from the nearby Xxxxxxxxxxx Vxxxxxx historical park. Although sometimes referred to as "Xxxxxxxxxx RxxK Xxxxxx", the more accepted and popular term is "Xxxxxxxxxx Rxxxxxxxxxx".
    Following construction of a new observation deck and enclosure, The Xxxxxxxxter had a reopening on May 10, 2008. (wikipedia)

    The dig site is up above on rock cliff, glimpses can be seen from here.

    I was just there a month ago. Now to get the 950 back together, a little too far for the DRZ with the current gearing.

    Yeah that is way far for me, but a great TAG non-the-less. Wish I could get there to not only see it live for the first time but make the TAG pic.

    I threw it together just now, took about 10 minutes to get it back to running condition. Still not done with all the wiring on it for the aux goddies, but it's good enough to ride for now. I'll rip it back apart when I get home.
