Dave!

That's so sweet!! You can't see me, but I'm doing this dance!

Aww, now I wish I had fixed the part in the bottom left corner where the lines are messed up.
I was obsessing over that bit, but matt said no one would notice...


Anyway, that's too funny. Love it.
Glad you liked your award!


Oh, yeah. sorry about the Jenny song...
It could be worse. Matt went on a 80s linky rampage last night and we watched ALL kinds of MTV flashbacks...
Wow.
The 80s.

Matt said he used to love
this one, because of the cool sidecar...



And, Matt said Kim had one of those very sidecars in his collection (I didn't get a pic, sorry)!

Okay, I figured out where you work and I stole some bigger ones...




"The Old Grey Mare"





Pretty cool, huh?
I'll PM you the link where I found those last 2, I think you'll like it.

Thanks, buglady - glad you enjoyed the report!

Funny you should ask....
we've actually been running around today, trying to prepare for another ride...





Back to Death Valley!




It's nuts, I know. But, we're taking off tomorrow and we'll be in DV for 3-4 days!


We have a list of stuff we want to do, not sure how much we'll accomplish.

Maybe the Playboy loop, but backwards (want to have another shot at finding cjbiker's wallet)...
Maybe Steele Pass and a search for the marble bathtub...
Maybe Swansea Grade again (not sure if we can get past the snow)...

Go visit the cone, see how he's doing...

Anyway.
So, we'll see how that goes.


Matt even bought himself a GoPro (on sale with his REI discount), so we might have some watchable video.
Emphasis on *might*

No promises, but if we get anything interesting (video or pics), I'll post when we get back.

At any rate, hope everyone has a great week.
Thanks again for playing with us!

I have to go eat dinner and then we're off to a birthday party.
See you guys later!

p.s. Bob, I'll PM you that link later tonight or tomorrow am...

OK, if you're looking for another quest, how about this one.



Not been there myself, but since its my favorite album, I should add it to my DV to do list.

Have fun on your trip.

Thanks Rob, Thanks Joe!!
More challenges - awesome -


Last time it took us forever to get online at PSR and I hate Slime (our POS netbook/hackitosh), so I probably won't be checking ADV much.
Maybe just 2-3 times?
But if you think of anything else, post up or send me a PM.
Hopefully I'll see it before we leave.


Dave6253 - what happened to the photo of your award?!?!
It was great - I hope you didn't take it down on purpose!


OK - gotta go - I still haven't packed...
But it's not hard to grab 2 shirts, 3 pr underwear and 3 pr sox.

Oh, crap - 1am!
Smell ya later!
love, littlewan ♥

You kids have fun in DV, again!
Looking forward to more pics and maybe a video.
If our local weatherman is right, you should have great traveling conditions.
Kelly, thanks for the link.

No idea what happened. Fixed, I think.

Have fun out there again. I'm jealous!

Awesome RR

People like you and Matt are an inspiration to all of us inmates. Thanks so much, enjoyed and laughed out loud to many time to count. My wife rides on the pillion of our V Strom but we stay mostly on back roads and gravel, the west is spectacular

[COLOR="DarkOrange"]Hola!
Just checking in to say "hey" - today was mucking awesome!
Did the Playboy loop backwards - South Park Canyon to Rogers Pass to Pleasant Canyon.

It was WAY harder this direction, but no crashes - Woo!
Found the steep stuff that cjbiker and Sam did, but no luck with the wallet (sorry cj).
Also went to Osborne (spelling?) cabin and a scary wash (deep sand and tight turns)
having a hard time with the GoPro, but maybe something will turn out
Rob - I think we got your challenge

okay, crap connection - later!

Must be a slow black & white connection. Your usual orange text didn't make it thru.

Well, spent way too much time at work reading through your ride report (but that's ok, because I am the boss ) I have try and get my wife to read through this to see how much fun a 2up ride can be. (She won't ride with me because the helmet will mess up her hair. )

All of the 'almost' porn and 'near' swearing........ I haven't laughed that hard for a while.

Great report. Can't wait to see what's next.

so the orange isn't working? I'm using safari, maybe that's it.
the internet here sucks ass booty. Not great luck getting online til this morning.
Yesterday was another great day. 242 miles (at least 200 mi of dirt), no gas stops!!
will tell you more when we're home.
Thanks for the comments, will also address them when we get home if that's ok...

Just wanted Joe from SF to know - yes, we found what we're looking for
2 challenges down!

rider914 - man, those are tough without clues. Can't research anything here, either
We did, however, snap a pic of a rider914 comment in a guest book...

OK - one bad bit of info -
Tea kettle junction - has 1 (ONE) teakettle. That's it. All the rest are gone!
Good thing pink pillion took the otama cone guy when she did...

It's getting hot(in the 90s yesterday) so we might leave tomorrow.
our video going up south park canyon didn't work so we might try doing that again today.
just to the cabin then back down. Hoping to do swansea grade/cerro gordo again.

Hope I can post this! better try now before the conn. dies.
take care you guys!!
