Sam taking time to smell the roses. See Bug Sister we are listening.....




Sam and I had a great afternoon yesterday getting bike maintenance done, and enjoying the Hospitality of Cathy and Skip.

Skip jumping right in to show Sam a different technique on changing a tire.



Then Skip and Cathy jumping in to help Sam look for dropped parts and dropped tools



Finishing up the oil change.



and then our hosts made sure Sam had a cold Adult beverage.

[IMG][/IMG]

Skip has an Amazing collection of Penton Motorcycles (pre KTM) as his neighbor growing up was John Penton. Sam was all over it, as he raced in that era and it was really cool to watch him light up!







After bike work, they prepared a great dinner for us! WOW!! Thanks. we stayed eating, Talking and sipping beverages until 11Pm. What a great evening! Thanks You Skip and Cathy



Sending Sam off with a "Hello Kitty" with instructions to make it to the Bolivian Salt Flats

Good job guys. Notice how taking time to smell the flowers has brought a smile to Sam's face What I want to know now is where you guys found the fountain of youth? Some where between leaving the PNW and getting to where you are now Sam lost 10+ years off his face. Whatever you guys are doing keep it up, it's agreeing with you.

Set 27

Hola, everyone. Well today is load and head for the border. Anyway Last night at dinner I had mentioned to Radioman about a movies I had watch sometime back that kept me chuckling, as I remember that was the way we rolled in the 70's not to mention AGATT I remember some great philosophical passages narrated but not in proper context, Needless to say, Netflix had the movie for streaming so Mark and I chuckled all through this movie about three amigos heading South of the Border in 1971. So, instead of trying to paraphrase I found this snippet listen to the wisdom form the orator.


"Cycles South"



As I've been saying to Radioman...................... "No worries, no hurries"

Skip, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and for the assistance you gave us. The after dinner conversation and bantering were indeed the highlight of the day, ... to be amongst kindred spirits, there are really no words. Take care of those Penton's now

If the trade winds bring me back through, I will definitely pop in Thanks ever so much for the hospitality "Mucho Gusto y nos vemos".

Sam
