Lake Tonle Sap, Cambodia, June 2010 - taken from the floating village



Clearly, there was only one thing to do... buy a case (and a bit) of beer and wait it out.



... which scored me some prawns that the boat & tuktuk drivers provided - both cooked and raw (with a dipping sauce) and a drive of the tourist boat on the way back

This is just south of Canon City Colorado. It doesnt look like too much but it dumped about 5 inches of rain in 45 minutes!



No one has posted much of the "other end of the spectrum"..........SNOW!!!

Just East of Flagstaff on my way to KOH. This is at about 3am. Running 30mph on I-70 for 6 hours! I ran into snow at the bottom of Wolf Creek Pass CO and didnt get out of it until Kindman AZ!!



This storm got me good one my way to KOH this year. It rained for 2 straight days. This is just north of Lucerne Valley

Earlier this month a storm was chasing me all the way home, Lukachukai Mountains, Navajo Nation.








The next day, I rode out to Monument Valley and my bike and I got stopped at a washout in the road near Rough Rock, AZ.
While waiting for the road crew to let me cross, I watched this form in the sky. I have never seen a tornardo on the reservation.

OK, I'll cover this one

Planned on riding the Snowies with some ADVRiders.
ThaRick, Toddler, Dogmeat, XC700116, and myself; Bushy taking the pic:

This was the first time all of us had ridden together. ThaRick and Toddler ride together a lot; I ride with Dogmeat, XC, and Bushy a lot.

We get to the trailhead and unload... windy, snowing, cold, real low visibility. Worst I've ever ridden in, and cold as hell. Just about all you could do to keep on the trail and keep sight of the person in front of you.

We made it about 3 miles from the truck when we took this picture... at which point we gathered and decided it was best to throw in the towel for the day. Not worth putting ourselves at risk to ride that day.



Loaded up and headed down the mountain for food and beers at the Bear Tree . Weather was great in Centennial, Wyo.

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

Caught in a spring snow storm north of Madras, Oregon, on my way back from Baja. The expression says it all.
