8th annual “Mini Rush-More” trip to the Black Hills

May 28th – May 31st, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday

Hill City SD

8th annual “Mini Rush-More” trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota this coming spring. Home to Mount Rushmore, Deadwood, and Sturgis. We are planning on a 4 day 3 night overnighter run to Hill City, SD in the Black hills May 28. 29, 30, and 31st of June 2022, so save the dates. A lot of folks leave on Monday, but we added Tuesday for those that can stick around.

We have a run setup on Iron Mountain road. 314 CURVES, 14 SWITCHBACKS, 3 PIGTAILS, 3 TUNNELS, 4 PRESIDENTS, 2 SPLITS in 17 MILES, with another run on Needles Highway. Some of the attractions, Mount Rushmore, 1880’s Train, Casino’s, Great Drives, Great food, Great Scenery. For comparison Tail of the Dragon is 318 curves in 11 miles.

We will be having a social gathering probably in a park or somewhere outside. We have other ideas that we are working on.. more fun to come.

The hotel will be $105 for Saturday Sunday, and Monday. You can also make your own arrangements, at other hotels in town if you wish. As this is a tourist destination on a holiday weekend, it was hard to get any type of deal, as most places didn’t want to mess with a group as they will sell out anyway. Keep that in mind, so get your reservations at whatever hotel you want sooner than later. We will be staying in the same town as last several years. They really take care of us, and make the setup for the group very easy. This hotel gives us better access to walk the main street in Hill City with lots of shopping, restaurants, other hotels, gas stations, and a car wash!!!
