I was doing some research & history tells that the initial pilgrim inhabitants that settled there did so in the summer. When the Native Americans returned in the winter to the lake, they slaughtered the entire group of invaders that stole their land.

It would be on your way the Badlands (past Waldrug).. and on to the Blackhills, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Deadwood, and a quick loop to see Devil's Tower. There's, probably, still the dinosaur park on that stretch too.

Actually, that's not entirely true. We live near a lake that was created by the TVA back in the 1930's. At the bottom of the lake is what's left of a town that used to sit next to the creek they dammed up to make the lake. A road supposedly still leads right down to the lake and into it and several years back, during a particularly bad drought, the lake pool level got so low you could see the tops of buildings that were abandoned after the Army Corps moved people out in advance of the dam flooding the valley.

You and I should get together some weekend. I'll don a t-shirt and flannel with my Doc Martens and Aviators and we can listen to Nirvana whilest we build new computers but manually set all the jumpers on the motherboard. If you got the cheddar for it we can dip and catch a Ska show, too. If not, aint no thing but a chicken wing, we can watch Frasier.
