By | Feb 26th, 2015 | Category: Events, Outdoor Adventure I’ve been living on the west side of South Dakota for several years now, but I’ve been informed that my Black Hills residence isn’t official until I’ve attended the famous ‘Nemo 500 Outhouse Races.’ The tiny town of Nemo, located between Rapid City and Deadwood, is hardly more than a speck on the map.
