Trinity Site Ride

Twice a year, the first Saturday in October and April, they open the road to the Trinity Site at White Sands Missle Range to the public. I'm gonna ride the ZX-10R up there from South Texas Friday, 30 September and camp at the Valley Fires National Recreation Area campsite and then go out to the Trinity Site Saturday morning. The weather looks like it will be nice.

For those who aren't familiar with it, the Trinity Site is the site of the worlds first atomic explosion. A plutonium bomb similar to the one dropped on Nagasaki was detonated atop a 100' steel tower.

Send pictures! Look for trinitite while you're there.

Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.

I'm from Kingsville. Can you imagine those folks at White Sands telling guys who ride ZX-10Rs, "Don't pick up the Trinitite, it's radioactive!" BWAHAHA!!!

Radioactive maybe 40 years ago. Levels are so low now, you could carry a piece around for a year and not have any problems. Of course, I'm not a Nuclear Physicist, nor do I play one on TV.
Take plenty of pictures and be sure to post them when you get back.
Being located in Kingsville, are you US GOVT property?

I guess you could say I am retired U.S. goverment property. I'm gonna pick all the Trinitite I can get away with. It is only suppposed to be about four times background radiation.
