The Super 8 in Sturgis has teamed up with the Loud American and will offer a $40 room rate for those that book a room at the Sturgis Super 8 on Saturday December 26th. The offer is good only that night and to take advantage of it you must mention the Loud American Judd Hoos promotional rate.
What the h–! I’m sorry to say I just couldn’t make it to Sturgis for the show—I did manage to get within 100 miles on hwy 34, west of Pierre on saturday the 26th. I somehow didn’t get the message from the Gov that all roads “were closed” and that “no” travel is advised. SO I found myself an hour later heading west on I-90 towards Sturgis! You had to know that I felt like the last man alive while driving along a “perfectly good” and mostly clear 4-lane freeway, through a blizzard—and mine was the ONLY vehicle on that road, anywhere!!!! I found this out after pulling into Kadoka for gas. Needless to say, my road to Sturgis ended right there, and that I soon found myself stranded, but happy to find Judd Hoos fans at the Kadoka City Bar!!!! Actually, Zwarte was more popular—but neither Zwarte nor ‘Hoos was on the Juke-box for a true battle of the bands! Karokee-nite in Kadoka sucked the big one—the dj & equipment were marooned in—Sturgis!! I found out later that you guys didn’t make it either—so I don’t feel too bad! However, one of my all-time best adventures (or is it among the stupidest) will have to be attempting to drive to Sturgis on Christmas Day, through one hell of a blizzard, to support the Judd Hoos Band!!! Rock On Guys & I’ll see you “somewhere” next year!
