I was born in Watertown and lived in Lead as a kid. I now live in Texas. I went up to Deadwood a week before the bikers' rally and felt gouged.$99 for a Budget Host dinky room? Charging now to visit the cemetery! Businesses that do not say, "Sir, ma'am, please, thank you, hello"? Deadwood is surley, and has nothing more to offer than Wild Bill, Calamity Jane, and prostitute history. Come on- do you have nothing else? I'm not returning as a tourist.
I do wish to thank the kids running the recreation center in Deadwood for their courtesy.
