HAMS rally was a precursor to our present Maxi Scoot Rally

Pete and I have visited the BIG TREE a few dozen times.  It's one of our favorite riding destinations.

As of last night I read they feel the tree like most things in life is a dying thing however they feel this tree will survive this latest lightning strike and be around longer than us.

I read an article once that the Indians called this the Buffalo tree and used it as a marker when they traveled up and down the Missouri River.  Lewis and Clark most certainly saw the tree. 

Here are a few of my favorite pictures of the Big Tree.

The pictures do not do her justice... she's enormous!

Was the first HAMS the one based out of St. Louis at one of the local hotels?
