Thanks, I've been back to DV 3 or 4 times more since this report...still finding new things.

The music in that vid is by a good friend and you can find out more here:

Her 11/25 entry is about being at my house and there are little tabs where you can listen to the full album or go to I-tunes to buy it. She's the real deal.
This album is amazing. Moments is a growth song. If not for RRs from Larryboy I wouldn't even know about it. Thanks LB!

God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy.

Huh, you took the southern route out because of snow back in 2010.

And just last week, you took the same route going in!

Kinda weird.

Going through this RR again, I'm impressed at all the stuff you did - and the amount of music & video editing.

Like reading a good book over again - got more outta it the second time around.

That Jet You Saw

This is a crazy bit of synchronicity or serendipity or whatever you want to call it. I was re-reading this RR (caught the DV bug myself recently) and had just passed the part about the "Aurora" jet you saw. Within the next few minutes, I'd switched over to the Washington Post to read some news, and this is the first story that caught my eye:

Pretty wild.

I'm back on two wheels finally (a plated XRR, in fact) and my first order of business was to re-read this report to be inspired. There is still some summer left for riding, and Rob makes winter in the high desert w/o heated gear or choke plate appear to be but a trifle.

ADVRider needs an annual awards show ("The Advies?") to recognize best ride reports, best build, MacGuyver repair, most hardcore rider, toughest adventure, etc. Larryboy would have swept most categories in 2010/11 with this report.
