Threw some cash in the pot Ara. If you can make it to the Garter meetup on the 30th I'll buy you a beer too.

Overwhelmed. “Old Faithful” rides on... AZ

All this happened too fast almost. The breakdown, 2 days to get to Tucson on a trailer, an outpouring wave of help and suddenly as fast seemingly as it happened “Old Faithful” is back on the road. “Iron Horse” in Tucson overwhelmed me, their handle on the situation has been exceptional. What a sweet sight it has been of “Old Faithful” in my Friend's garage while she is being “harnessed” again ready to take off Thursday morning. Boulder/Escalante in Utah... we have been trying to get there for it seems weeks now! The biopsy, the breakdown, this time it is a green light toward the weeks ahead rekindling our relationship with Mother Nature. So many have come forward as I sit here thanking everyone individually. It might take some time but it will get done.
Tucson has been hot, hot for us, and the only “drive” was up one morning very early, Father's Day, up Arivaca Road which is also the road many locals ride. It was too early for any other vehicle, I needed some time alone to reminisce on my past times with Lance while the Sunrise, a beautiful one, was taking place on this Day always filled with the past memories. What a week it has been.
Finally up is part III video of our Valley of the Gods ride and the sunrise photos...
“Thank you” all that have come forward, those two words will never be enough.

Be safe and well.
Peace, Love and Courage.

Ara & Spirit

Could you vote for us in this photo contest which we are a semi-finalist to be chosen as a "theme" for an upcoming Ron Howard Movie? 2 days left...
There are 29 photos left in the contest. Here are the instructions (they could have made it easier!). Don't try any other way...
Open the link and click on "Enter Gallery" on the top left. Scroll with the "right top arrow" the film strip and you will find our photo, one click will do. Our photo will come up as a thumbnail, click on the photo, the photo will come up and you can vote for us... please...
Here is the link

I haven't spent much time looking at ride reports, so I was unaware of this saga.

My life's choices don't allow me the luxury of a nomadic life. It's inspiring to learn about those who can live that life.

I've voted for your picture, and will tell all my friends to do so as well.

Ara,

Glad to hear that You are back in the saddle so to speak and that "Old Faithful" is rolling once again ! Those folks at Ironhorse are GREAT ! We stopped in there in April 2008 when Kellie & I got to Tuscon after meeting You & Spirit outside of Moab in the middle of nowhere !

I just voted for Your picture and sent You & Spirit a little donation to help get You back on the road !

Take Care !

John

Voted!

Ara,

Voted for the pix, and even though Old Faithful is back on the road, and I read this too late to help with the fix, I'm sending a few $$$ your way as my way of saying Thank YOU for these years of most excellent ride reports, prose, poetry, and pictures.

...well, Ok, it's really because I love the pix of Spirit!

Most importantly, congratulations on your good news - we want to keep you going for a bit longer, jes sayin'...

..edit
and I cross posted over at FJRforum.com too.
