... where the buffalo roam... and I'll show you a messy house! A solo ride today through Custer State Park, including the Wildlife Loop...

A "glamour shot" with the Vespa and a couple of my new buffalo friends...



Buffalo herd in the distance...



A "buffalo jam"...



Cruising on the Needles Highway with some Harleys...



Comfortably cool today, in the upper 60s. A feel of fall in the air.

Thanks, Paul. Our time here in the Black Hills is getting short, but we have had a great time riding the roads around here. I apparently have a "wandering gene," but this is the most fun I've had staying in one place for quite a while.

Yes it is, Visited that are a few time.

Wondering if you wandered into Hill City and can let me know if the Alpine Inn there is still up and running?

Now I've got bison burgers on my brain.

When you back in Texas, Jim?

Yes, the Alpine Inn is doing a brisk business. We had lunch there on Saturday, with some scooter friends - had to wait a half hour to get a table for the 4 of us. Worth it.

Hi, JP - sometime later this month. No firm schedule. Living on the coast, we tend to see what Mother Nature has in store for south Texas. Or, as my wife say: "We don't want to get there and unload, just in time to reload and get outta there."

Looks to be a pretty active hurricane season unfolding.
