Today started out bright and early at and 86 degrees – promising to be a hot one before it ended.
We accomplished our mission and were back in the campground by p.m.
It consists of a general store built in 1890, a 6-room motel, post office and a few trailer houses.
Aladdin is always a stop on our agenda not only for a butt break but they’ve got ice cream there!!
Then it was on to Hulett where we did some shopping and managed to get a bite to eat. Wednesday of bike week is the big day for Hulett when they hold their famous/infamous Ham and Jam Day.
Hulett’s claim to fame is that Sturgis is where the Rally is, Hulett is where the party is. They roast a number of pigs and there are free pork sandwiches for everyone.
As I said, there are supposedly no rules – in Sturgis it’s against the law to drink on the streets, Hulett allows it.
In Sturgis any form of nudity is against the law, Hulett allows it.
The big party on Wednesday is known as No Panties Wednesday – I’ll leave the rest to your imagination. If you want to know more you’ll have to go to Hulett on the Wednesday of Bike Week. Then we got on our bikes and proceeded to ride behind a Nipco heater. We all drank so much water we sloshed by the time we got back to camp.
Then we visited Devil’s Tower – a somewhat spooky place that is actually the core of an old volcano. Our last stop was at Beulah, Wyoming, famous for their burn out contests. Possible damage to his bike and having to buy a new rear tire.
Remember the movie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind? For those of you who don’t know, burnouts are racing your engine and spinning your back tire in place until it blows up. Doesn’t sound to feasible to me, but then what do I know? So about the time we were all fried from the sun and the wind we arrived back in camp. Tonight was Kerilynn’s last night with her parents so her mom cooked her favorite dinner and we all gorged.
Don’t ever stand behind someone doing a burn out because the rubber comes off in itty bitty pieces and lands all over you and in your hair and it smells. As I sit here and type this I can hear the loud music coming from the concerts going on in the campground next door.
I think ZZ Top is performing over there tonight with Tanya Tucker at the campground on the other side of that.
