Secret South Dakota Mission . . . wait . . . what?

Welcome to South Dakota

Last Thursday I flew out to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I know what you're thinking, South Dakota? ABRAMS flew myself and Jason Wells out there on a top secret mission. But of course its a secret one that I will reveal on Monday. But in the mean time here are a bunch of photos from my South Dakota adventure

South Dakota loves to hunt with adorable dogs

Our Secret mission started here.

Up at dawn, we meet our contacts here for a simple breakfast.

South Dakota's has a variety of game to be hunted

After breakfast we were ready completed our mission. Here is a sneak peak.

Then we hit the road to see what South Dakota had to offer.S. Dakota offered a 75 mph state highway. At times I was going a tad fast ( 100 mph ) as we drove across the state with Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills in our site.

Lots of road side attractions

Uh . . .?

After a 6 hour drive we arrived to an empty Mount Rushmore all lite up.

7:45 AM Mountain Time

Just down the road from Mount Rushmore is the Crazy Horse Memorial

Korczak Ziolkowski
The mountain carving was begun in 1948 by a Polish American sculptor Korczak Ziółkowski, who had worked on Mount Rushmore under Gutzon Borglum in 1924.

This is what Crazy Horse will look like when finished

They have a long way to go.

A wee forest fire.

Mission and sight seeing tour completed. Now its back to NYC to attend a Halloween Party

Wow... I'm almost tempted to drive out there just for gas that cheap!

I'm guessing the secret mission has to do with a Wimpy balloon?
