...after a long and arduous journey, REWARD!





Not to nit-pick, but it's kinda' "in my lane" so I'll just say, packing and preservation: fail
Good effort though... please don't be mad.
The plastic bag was a good barrier material, but the inner wrap - the cloth bag... it trapped condensation generated IN the plastic bag and held it close to Sr. Nutsy.

I hate to say it - but I had to, umm, well, Sr. Nutsy no longer has a sack.



...ya' don't think THAT's why he's into my biers, doya?!

Once we got into camp for the night (Lake Chelan SP - nice little spot) and I got some grub, Sr. Dusty was in need of some maintenance - all that time in the cold cold ground [/tasmanian devil] - he needed to get HOT HOT HOT!

Cool2



Next morning, we packed up and headed outa' town - there were two Bald Eagles circling over the lake - oh, and I almost forgot - after the grab, as I was motoring North on the 155, I was lucky enough to see a momma' black bear & cub "coming through the wire" along the side of the road. Did. Not. Stop.

She looked up as I came over the top of a hill and gave me that "Aroouh?" look - she was half-way through it - cub already on my side, about 30 yards off the road. THAT's the sorta' picture I would love to have, but will just have to settle for memory. :sigh

OH yeah - and that 155 was an AWESOME road, thanks! I musta' cruised up-n-down that thing a couple times looking for the 'squatch - missed him the first time because I was headed south... maybe a little fast, too.
Don't say you wouldna!

Senor Lusty was feelin' kinda' hungry... so was I - that 3.5 oz tin of kippers and bag-o-chips wasn't very filling for dinner... so we stopped off in Leavenworth, Washington (NOT Kansas... ) for breakfast.



Hey - Germany is nine hours ahead of us, it was, like, 7:30 pm or sumptin' Duetsches Time!

Lusty made a new friend or two... guess he LIKES metal folk. Maybe I can find the tinman...

After havin' indulged for brunch, we had to burn off some time... so we did what EVERYbody does in Leavenworth - visited the stores!
The Hat store (or some such...) is where you find people spending good money on silly (and cheap - but who am I to say) but not inexpensive party hats.

Sr. Crusty liked this one - but they didn't have one in his size


:phew

dammit - fuzzy pictures and now I can't even FIND one! Oh well, you'll just have to take my word for it.

There was also a store - "Jubilee Fair Trade" that we visited.
Now, I was thinkin' it'd be some kinda' barter, and was wondering what I could get for old Senior Busty... but no it wasn't that kinda' trade.


(not the hat)
http://www.jubileeglobalgifts.com/fairtrade.html

The gal behind the counter was passionate about their cause, and took the time to explain lotsa' stuff to this old-timer - didn't walk out with anything, as it wasn't really ~my thing~ that they sell up there, but I dig the message. Check it out. ...or don't - it's cool.

Filled the tank and burned the ~180 miles home, downloaded the bags and then took the little bike (DR 200 YaY ) for another ~100 miles, but that's another story.

THE PLAN: Sr. Nutshell will get a little buff while he's visiting... think "Wizard of Oz - Tin man, Lion, Scarecrow and Dorothy at the Salon"
Then, maybe, in a week or two... THE DROP.

Oh - quitcher' whinin' - he's movin' ain't he?

Thanks Pat - not sure on your choice of words though...
Der Biermanns Schlitten is my sled - an R100RT w/Ural Sidecar... it's the "heavy hauler" of the fleet. "Francis" there is swift and sure of foot... the long-haul rides generally go to him. Frank hadn't had a workout since December, while the Schlitten and the new-to-me little bike have been at least gettin' day-rides... man I love that old bike. Hell, they're ALL fun!

One last shot for the day:


Just so's y'all know who to chuck rocks at...

I beg to differ.
1st, when we had Sr. Nutsy he still had a nut sack that was with him when we met.
2nd, when we dropped him we had no idea it would be for 7 months.
3rd, he was found exactly were he was dropped, inspire of the snow, ice and frigid comments.

Glad you picked him up and he is finally on the move again.
As far as the 2 week delay before the next drop, I doubt any will get too concerned.
Thanks for taking the heat off us, although we are from Texas and can take the it.

Tony the Tiger, does not matter how long it take to make the drop. Just keep the pics of Mr. Nutsy's adventures coming.
