Nope. Looks like a definite "Curses, foiled again" look to me.

You might be able to hook up and give them some packing pointers. They are planning on doing
Death Valley in August. I gave them a couple of those riding vests that are designed to be
soaked in water and then cool you through evaporation. I hope they help.

Super Ray called me today and said Karen was a bit off her game. So they were going to stay
at the lake a little longer to rest up and get her feeling better. Said I missed a roaring party at
my house last night. I half believed him.

That about sums it up. We had 2 days where our sides were splitting with laughter and our bellies were splitting with Connies fantastic cooking.

Rick is struggling to deal with his age and thinks he is a 20 year old. With him its toys, toys, toys. He is completely nuts. He has an over-bored 250 Kawasaki and showed me how to wheelie it outside his house. It was a proper point of balance job. I tried and failed - (no skill or bottle !).

Even on his Rhino, with Connie on board I could not keep up with him on a 650 Kawaski quad.

We had a great couple of days and were treated like Royalty. Thanks again guys.



Rick and the beautiful Connie.



Rick and Ray struggling for air for laughing.



And when we broke the tube, look whose side sank first.

You do not need to top it. We will be down that way in around 7 - 10 days and we come armed with a tent and 2 pairs of hands. If you have a space to pitch and some work for us to do we would be more than honoured to help out.
