Yeah, samthg -- it has been too quiet on the moto front. Temps have been cold. Lots of ice around St. George in the mornings. Pretty unusual. Also been busy with all the regular routines of life. Plus starting a new Boy Scout Troop, and getting ready for my son's last Pinewood Derby race as a Cub Scout. We have lots of victories, so high expectations!
Your 1% clear day in SoCal post got a lot of deserved mileage. I've looked back through it a few times.
Regarding the Utah roadside history book -- probably good stuff. Exploring out of the way places and discovering the lesser known bits of local history has been a real highlight of the moto riding. Easy to find stuff most folks would never come across. In addition to amazing scenery, lightly travelled roads, and some very nice people, Southwest Utah is home to some very unique local history. I'll leave it at that.
