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.
