Black Hills Motorcycle Classic...

Making plans to attend.. I try to explore the areas less traveled while there and stay at places most don’t go..this year I’ll be staying at an old missile complex now converted to a B&B..owners have a lots of questions as I’m a former missileer that was assigned there..also given carte blanche to the Minuteman Missile Historic monument located at the eastern end of the Badlands loop..

Cool! Hopefully staying in a hole in the ground will bring back fond memories for you. It'd definitely be cool to take one of the tours.

Unfortunately the Launch Control Facility(LCF)..or..”hole in the ground” as you called it..where we did our alerts has been filled in at the now converted B&B site..will be staying top side in the Launch Facility(LF) building..originally used by the security forces and support personnel..

You say 'mater, I say 'mater. It's all good!


Have you seen or heard about the LCF (I learned something today!) that was converted to a dive pool in Texas? http://www.drivedivedevour.com/divin...-missile-silo/

Re: Black Hills Motorcycle Classic...

Not a very exciting dive, but can you imagine the training scenarios you could have there? It wouldn't be hard to do confined space or blackout with a minimum of effort.

Being a flatlander, and all of my dives being at sea level, I didn't even consider this!



Anyway, have a great time, take pictures and post a few for us!
