    Absolutely breathtaking.....
    Whose S2KDay's my dear?

    But yes, it is an amazing part of the country. I will also attest to the K bar S being a fantastic place to stay as well. It's fun to see George Washington's profile from the resort. Jason set up some fantastic routes the last two times we were out there, and they were an absolute blast to drive. I was a passenger both times and it was just so much fun. The country out there is gorgeous. And AZ2KDancer, yes, Devil's Tower is really cool. It is kind of a haul to get there. I would suggest a side trip on the shoulders to see it. It's cool to see rock climbers scrambling up the side.

    I would really recommend this trip to anyone who is remotely thinking about it. This part of the country is gorgeous, the resort is just plain amazing, the drives are no doubt going to be incredible (Jason will NOT let you down there), and the events on the itinerary are fantastic. Sign yourselves up.

    If it has tires or testicles, it is going to give you trouble.

        I'm sure hoping for the best outcome. I'll make plans. If 2021 is in a better shape than 2020, we have the S2KDays to look forward to in May, a dance convention in June and this trip in the Fall. I just could turn out to be a wonderful year. I sure hope so.

          My fingers are crossed as well. Planning for the best, but prepared for the possibility of the worst. Our biggest concern is that we NOT be creating an environment that could kill people. It sounds weird that this must be a consideration (in the past, my fears have been preparing for mechanical issues or, god forbid, hail), but these are strange times and we simply have to adjust for it. New challenges call for new reactions and new strategies. But hopefully, all of our patience will pay off and all of this virus stuff will be in our rear view mirrors by then.

          I'm also looking forward to this: some of us will have S2000 20th Anniversary travel tumblers for evenings of sipping by the fire, or wherever we end up hanging out. Woohoo!

              I guess we'll just have to find out.

              I think the second round will taste better than the first. The third will be smooth as silk. The fourth will be phenomenal. The fifth will be a fifth.

                  ^^ That's a pretty picture. Wouldn't want to be in my S2000 in that, but it's a pretty picture.

                  Any idea on the history of the place and why it is called Deadwood?

                    Simple answer... After dead trees found there by early settlers. (They didn't go for abstract meanings much back then.)

                      Here is a little more info on Deadwood.

                      Deadwood is a city in South Dakota known for its gold rush history. Mount Moriah Cemetery has the graves of Wild West figures like Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. Exhibits at the Adams Museum include a huge gold nugget and a plesiosaur fossil. The 1892 Historic Adams House is a Victorianmansion with original features. South of town, the George S. Mickelson Trail leads through the Black Hills National Forest. ― Google

                        Ever since the TV series "Deadwood" I've wanted to visit the town. (Big Ian McShane fan!) It's on my "Bucket List".
                        Interesting bit of trivia...the Plesiosaur fossil is an aquatic dinosaur from the Jurassic Period some 250 to 60 million years ago a time when the mid west was under water.

                          I am glad to know that someone else liked the TV series Deadwood. I felt that it was very well done.

                            Iron Mountain is a peak in the Black Hills of South Dakota, notable for the fact that U.S. Route 16A was purposely built directly over its summit to provide scenic views of Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

                                I'm really looking forward to being able to safely travel again. When I'm finally allowed my turn for the vaccine, I'll get my shots and count the days to full efficacy and knowing I can responsibly get on the road. It can't come soon enough. (Note: yes, I know we still have to take precautions, wear masks, and remain vigilant even after getting vaccinated.)

                                Thanks for the reminder of the light at the end of the tunnel, Jason. I'm also glad we are still here to see that light. But I'm also sad that we have lost at least one member to the virus, though.

                                      Wow! My dad was a car salesman back in the 70s. He brought home a Mustang II one night. I remember the back seats were (to this day) the most uncomfortable seats I have ever had the displeasure of sitting in! I could not get comfortable for even a trip down the street! I had to have been right around 10 years old, so not that big.

                                      I have mentioned this trip to Laurie and she is interested. I have had my first shot of the vaccine (second one in a week or so) due to supporting critical hospital systems. She will have to wait until it becomes more generally available. I think we will hold off on reservations until things flesh out a bit more.

                                        The first day of the event is highlighted by a visit to Wind Cave National Park, which is one of the oldest parks, established in 1903. The park has a rich history spanning countless ages.

                                          Every digit I have is crossed that this will all be able to go as planned. The efforts to stay safe are, at times, exhausting. I really want this trip to be able to happen. When they open the Canadian border, I think I'll be able to believe we are on our way to "you are now free to move about the country" status again and life resembling the pre-pandemic style.

                                          I hope that it is safe for everyone to participate come September.
