So, back on the road up to Cuba, stopped to pick up a better sleeping bag that my buddy brought for me from home. I had froze in Taos and I was heading north soon, so I thought I had better switch to something better. I had brought an older bag, thinking it would get abused and I didn't want to screw up my nice bag. Well after freezing a night in the mountains, to hell with that!

So I pick up my bag, which he had left with the guys at the race start. But now I had my old bag... So I ask the guys there, did they know of any local charities that I could drop the bag off. Turns out the first guy I had looked at also volunteered with a homeless shelter in Albuquerque. His eyes opened wide and was excited at the fact he would be able to pass in on. OK, good karma... check!

Now, time to get my ass in gear and back to riding. Four Corners, here I come!

Ahhhhh, I felt like I was home. And I wasn't in any particular place. And I was continuously moving. Yet I felt like I was home? Crazy...

So after enjoying a night at Nellis AFB's RV park, I was back on the road and heading to Death Valley. How cool is that?

The country got cooler and cooler as I rode...





After a quick night's sleep somewhere in... OK, just somewhere... I didn't even know anymore where I was. Didn't matter either.

Freakin' temperature was getting really cold. I actually saw 23 degrees this day! I had my heated gloves and heated jacket on to take the edge off though.

Although... OK, I have to be honest here. You guys will love this. Like I said, I ain't no motoman. I own the cool shit, but never get to use it. I barely know how to use it. I guess you could compare me to Ewan. Now I ain't bagging on Mr. McGregor, he has done a whole hell of a lot more than me. But guys seem to love giving him a rough time. In my book though, he's out there doing it. Crew or no crew, support or no, he's having fun, doing something he loves. That's cool in my book. And I was out there doing my thing as well... So what was I saying? Oh yeah, you guys will love this... long story short, I don't know shit...

So my jacket was heating up nicely, but my gloves, not so much. I was pissed actually. These gloves are expensive! I had the heated grips on as well, and my hands were chilly still. What gives? So I decided to take things off and investigate why my gloves seem cold. Did you guys know that plugging in your gloves to your sleeves of your jacket is only half the battle? Yeah, turns out you have to ALSO plug the "second" plug in that little pocket of your jacket, into the bike. Who knew there were two plugs? What a moron.

Ahhhhh, much better. Yeah, two little knobs on my controller... one for the jacket and one for the gloves. WOW, waht a great idea, huh?

I can't even put into words how gorgeous it was riding along the Clearwater River. Amazing riding... and it was now snowing! Amazing.

Again, I had to ask myself, "What was I doing here?" I really didn't qualify to be doing this.
