My little Island of Paradise in Utah...



My little Island of Paradise

This inhabited stretch has become my little Island of Paradise these past few days and will be for a few more days to come... all is here and at the same time... nothing!
Lots of vermillion was used in this past sunset... wish you would have all been here to experience it...
The trout is a thing of the past... long gone now... you guessed it!... It was great... could taste its freshness with every bite.
BMW of Las Vegas gave me some hundred dollar chips... their true value?... great service.
The Blog will have it’s story!

Be well...

Oh well, burned burgers it is!
You will need both hands so you do not burn them... which means... drop the beer and No Mystery while cooking!!!
Nice to hear from you... You guys need to plan a thursday night HERE!!!

A little ride in the neighborhood... Utah.

Hi Geode...



A little ride in the neighborhood, Utah.

I have the feeling that everyone wished to have a neighborhood like this one!... Right or left or north or south... great roads and scenery, hardly any traffic and there is a part of Utah that is not all red!
A great dinner (at least they thought so...) for my friends Michael and Sandra, some playing time for Spirit and his buddies... it is all good... all in the Blog.
In our conversations last night, we were wondering why get togethers are always where the crowd is!!! How about one right here...

Be well...

And all ends up well...



And all end up well...

School is never out just when we “might” think we are done... everyday new lessons are being provided, sometimes the teaching is kind, sometimes not.
What started as, finally thinking of having one, a bad day, end up being a great one... solving obstacles... followed by a great ride... and a great night sleep as Spirit seems to be getting back on track....
It is just part of everyday life on the road... we are not exempt from anything that you yourselves go through. The logistics are sometimes harder, but I would not trade this lifestyle with any other one... I know that some will agree after reading the Blog...

Be well...

YO ARA! I, too, am catching up on missed reading this morning. You are getting pretty good with that camera. You sure have taken some nice pictures.

We miss you down here. I almost rode the KLR to your house for a visit yesterday, then realized you weren't going to be there! Work has been 90mph and I think it has fried my brain.

Anyway, Spirit is looking very stylish these days, with his multitude of goggles and jackets. Lucy says HI SPIRIT.

Take care, give us a call sometime (I lost your # once again ).

PS- I like your new avatar. It's YOU!

If you are wondering what is going on with that disturbed man "Geode"... he has decided to ride painfully the 3000 miles to stop by my camp for a few days from Maine... Sad... he is under the impression that I will feed him as the dinners he has seen on my Blog... unfortunately bread and water is all I can offer... and even that... he will need to get Spirit's permission for it...
Will see...

We are waiting... the bread is getting stale...

Safe riding...

... be well.

A ride to Cedar Breaks and Kolob Canyons, Utah.



A ride to Cedar Breaks and Kolob Canyons, Utah.

So yes, I am a bit concerned about Spirit’s condition, it tears me up that he is still sick. Wish it was me instead... so hard to see and feel my helpless buddy! Time for a Doctor...
We did do a ride yesterday, he was doing better then. As usual Utah provides some exciting sceneries and roads. Only wish the winds and the rains would stop soon... maybe tomorrow!
More details on today’s Blog...

You be well...

A healthier Spirit and a safer rig... +...



A healthier Spirit and a safer rig, Utah... +...

Unfortunately my Website had been down at times these past two days due to power outages in Vermont... I apologize for that. Was a bit surprised they do not have a generator...
But it all just a matter of time... such as Spirit’s health. He received some good care yesterday and as usual acted like a gentleman only stunned by a crying baby lamb!!!
The rig is much safer as you can see the work done on it... of the outmost quality!
A great visit to the Dinosaur Discovery Center... hard to go back in time a couple millions of years!
We are packing to head for California for a few days... with the hope that Spirit gets better by the day... if not, will track back.
The outpour of concerns for Spirit has moved me more than anything else on this Journey, and realizing that so many great people are out there makes me want to get out and... mingle!!!
Hope you enjoy today’s Blog...

Be well...

Ara and a healthier Spirit!

One road to Kernville, CA.



One road to Kernville, CA.

We are in Kernville, California, amongst many riders... friends from the past and making new ones.
Cold... very cold, not handling it very well when it drops to the low 20's...
Spirit is doing better everyday and probably wondering why “all those people” want to pet him!!! He did find a few pairs of legs to rub his back against and I am always thankful to anyone that is nice to him...Geode, Glenn... well, cannot blame him for bailing out, weather, distance... schedule... needless to say... “WHIMP”!!!
There will be more in a day or two... have to get back to camp now, my friend Jkam just showed up!... surprise...
You be well... enjoy...

*** The picture above does not reflect my sentiments toward Spirit... just a sick sense of humor...

We talked for about an hour this past Saturday afternoon and I must say you are the real thing.



Keep on rockin' and rollin'
