    There are a lot of little state parks east of there. Any of those have pretty good camping. Look around Raymond, NE.

    I have not stayed there but the free Buckley Park Campground in Stromsburg (just North of York.) 2 day limit. http://www.stromsburgnebraska.com/camping.asp :D

    As for state parks, after paying an entry fee & camping permit you can stay at a some motels for less.

    :huh Not sure I'd stay at those motels. Daily park permit is around 4 bucks and tent camping spots are around 10 bucks/night.

    'Course, there's always GSBikers backyard . . . :hide

    It looks like it is still there. Call the York newspaper to find out for sure.

    Yea the building still stands at 721 Grant. I have talked to the building owner. He has divided it into offices and runs a real estate business from there. He is a very nice guy who offered up a tour anytime. Ken Kunze is his name.

    I have also been talking to the local library director, Stan Schulz. He has started me out on the right foot gaining information. He sent me a great list of musicians who had played there. I am trying to locate some of their recorded music to give to my Grandpa. I think he would love that, but, I have had no luck so far. My grandfather knows nothing of this trip.

    Mr. Schulz is also going to set me up to talk to a professor of music who is researching a musician who made his start at the radio station. I am hoping to get some valuable information from him. I have not yet had the opportunity to get his contact information but know he teaches in Brookings, SD.

    I hope to ride up there and get a large amount of information and put it all together with pictures, and then give it to him in the spring while we drive up there together.

    Thanks again for all the help. People so willing to help each other is one of the many things I love about the ADV motorcycle community.

    Don't forget to get in touch with the NE State Historical Society. They seemed to have boxes of information listed on their website regarding things like this. They might be able to get a research librarian to help you get some of those recordings.

    Be sure to let us know when you are headed up. We could meet you for breakfast or dinner, or a ride while you are here. :freaky

    Absolutely. I will be heading up after Christmas as soon as I am sure to avoid ice.

    That's the problem. I DO remember last winter. But I've done my best (anti) snow dance. I have an ATV with a plow on it this year. Guaranteed to not snow now.

    A KLR is not an ATV, and duct taping a scoop shovel on does not make it a snow plow.

    Duh! It's a snow plow. I used freezer tape.

    I guess the more snow/ice we get the more time I have to plan. I am getting some serios cabin fever. May have to just take the cage.
