Hello all Old and New Mutants,

Pipestone National Monument is well worth your time if you get the chance to go, the history needs to be kept alive.

Photo one is quartzite rock which is above the Pipestone and has to be removed so the Pipestone can be quarried .

Who oversees the Pipestone quarries

Lastly is Pipestone creek

Oh and lastly lastly is another old stone face formed from natural erosion, he's older than Wayne.

Oooooklahoma ....

OOOOk-lahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain,
And the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet, When the wind comes right behind the rain.

Made it to Clinton, OK today. OK lived up to its billing, pretty much had 3* left rudder all afternoon. Getting off the infernal-state tomorrow at Amarillo (by morning ?) and taking the cross country tour to Las Cruces. Hoping to make Tucson by Tuesday evening, maybe Wednesday.

Hope everyone traveling is doing good.

Jake

Its not the marbles so much as the bruising and swelling of the upper lip. I just want to be on record as stating that it was dental work, not me.

Thanks for the memories, Jeff and Marcia!
We need to see Pipestone and Steen, MN again!
The ghost of my great gramps Steen is said to haunt the grain elevator!

No it's not tires. It's the shackle. It is broke in half and the other side is cracked.

That being related to the suspension? My quick research shows those parts are at least reasonably priced (~$95?), but I'll be danged if I would know where/how to fix them. Good luck Dwayne! I'm sure you're capable!

Northern New Mexico -- Red River perhaps. They have skiing there so I bet they have snow. And quaint describes it to a T.
