Thanks for the great RR John! AND that set is what I was wantin' to hear!


-OMP in San Diego. I grew up listening to Blues on the three Black radio
stations in 50's Houston. Now there are none that play Blues. And of
course San Diego's radio sucks hind tit to any kind of music.

Ride on.

thanks for the RR, I really, really enjoyed it... long distance with a KLR, great photos, desert, prairies and just enough weather and technical challenges to keep it interesting (to me, I'm sure it was more than enough for you).

looking forward to your next RR.

The last time I was in Big Bend, I stumbled upon an AM radio station somewhere near Fort Stockton that played the old cowboy country music from the '50s and '60s. That stuff doesn't get played ANYWHERE from what I can tell. It was absolutely refreshing to hear, and I don't even like country music. It would be nice to have some variety like we used to have. Media conglomerates have ruined music and pop-culture, as far as I'm concerned.

Thank you! Hopefully the next trip will be dry from start to finish!

John, head for Weiser, ID with your acoustic the third full week in June for
the "Old Time Fiddlers National Competition". There is 5 acres of camping
for all the itinerant musicians to jam 24/10. Yep, all day/night long for
10 days! Jazz to fiddlin' with everything in between!

Everywhere I went it seemed like they were either just about to have a music festival or had just finished one. How awesome is that! I can envision one day just traveling around and jamming with strangers in neat places. It's definitely something to shoot for with the long range planning..

Do it John! My mother was one of those childhood fiddlers that just
stopped playing and never picked it up again. She "sort of tried" to
get me to play, but I'm one of those persons who are known not
to carry a tune. I can't dance either, but like my dad, I sure have
fun making a fool out of myself.
Let me know when you can make it to Weiser and I'll meet you there.
We can crash at my cousins place.

I absolutely agree.

I didn't use the Butler maps at all.

Such is life.

Oh, and I had a great trip regardless.

Just getting caught up John. Great report! Really enjoyed your pictures. Looks like you handled the setbacks well. You sure covered a lot of miles. Looks like you did some great routing to get you to the places you wanted to visit within the time available. (Pesky jobs!) Nice mix. Looking forward to your next trip and report!

Yeah, having time constraints to work around is a drag, but it's my reality. There is a great deal to be said for just pointing the bike and watching the landscape change. I've got to hit Southern Utah and Northern Arizon again some time when it's dry. I probably ought to do it with a lighter setup as well. And frankly, after the mechanical issues I had early on I didn't want to find myself broken down (or injured) too far off the beaten path alone and that influenced my itinerary at bit. But I had a great time regardless! Glad you enjoyed the pictures!

John
