    South Dakota public broadcasting is doing a neat series called Vanished South Dakota. It highlights the history of little out of the way places most people never see.

    It's mid-winter, I'm dreaming of riding, and in eastern South Dakota adventure riders have to be creative sometimes.

    I'm thinking of making some of these "Vanished" towns day ride destinations. Maybe try and get there on mostly gravel. Eat lunch at a local cafe, head home. If there is interest from other riders in the area I could post planned rides. Might be a cool way to explore the area and help the local economy.

    Nice Idea. Let us know the routes as they get defined. I hope i'm out that way this year and it would be a neat experience.
