I got a real treat today! I talked my wife and daughter into stopping by the show and pull today! We we're at Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse on our two week Western vacation (college graduation trip for my daughter.)Got to meet SD Lars and Caseman-D. Was looking for Tom S and Doug Boll but others said they were not there. It was interesting to see a pull in a different area. Very long cable to hook tractors to sled and very dry, dusty track. But like they say, "Same track for everyone" I wonder how many pulls you guys can attend in a year? Back home in PA, a guy could pull 2-3 times a week within a 3 hour driving distance!

How close to finished is the Crazy Horse monument?? I remember being there when I was about 9 or 10 years old. I am nearly 62 now so that gives you a time frame.

I recall the guy that owned the gas station (near Rapid City I think) where we were filling up talking about some crazy old guy wanting to do a sculpture of Crazy Horse on his horse out of a nearby mountain. Many years later I saw a news spot on the sculpture on TV and that has been some years ago. I often wonder if the guy and now his family ever finished it.

They're still working on it. Up until a few years ago I thought of it as a waste of a mountain but then I took the time to watch Korczak Ziolkowski's (the sculpture)video of how he started and what his vision for it was and I changed my mind. The face is done and other parts are taking shape. Korczak died quite a few years ago and the family is continuing. They take no government money. Do a search for Crazy Horse Mountain and you can see how it's going.
