Glad you might be able to crash the Rally next weekend. This time I'll trust my senses when I hear your voice but can't see the face for the fire light.

Day trippn' across the high desert into NW Colorado.....

















I guess we're still in Utah though.



(I kinda like the 'dinosaur' that's in the back of the pickup)































































Tellydoug hosted us that night and treated us to Elk steaks!

Wednesday, Sep. 14th

We're on the sunny side of the mountains with rain forecast for the direction we're headed, and possible snow atop.

















































































































































We escaped any bad weather in the mountains and headed out across the great plains in search of Tallboy.

































Tallboy told us not to expect the same kind of hospitality that we found at Tellydoug's ...... but he lied.













You talkin' to me?!

It was 45f and raining when we got rolling the next morning in Kansas.




So...not many pics from here on out....



...but how can you not stop for a pic of something like this?









We spent the night in Missouri at catzass's place....He rode with us to breakfast Friday morning.









We rode through rolling farmland down along the edge of the Ozarks and through Arkansas to Memphis, TN.

















































Crossing the mighty Mississippi

A couple of friends rode out to Lake Lure to escort me the rest of the way home!

























The yield of 18 little day trips.

Loaded up and ready to go to the 6th annual Old's Cool fall rally in Tellico Plains, TN











This will be the first time that the little CB400 has ever been more than 30 miles from home.....









Fall is here!...she would be pointed straight into that blast of cool Canoodian air for 260 miles or so.









:pilot

























About the time that it began to warm up down low....it became time to point it's up high!
