Nice seeing everybody and talking bikes. Some nice rides showed up, but for some reason my camera didn't come out. Too busy stuffing my face I guess. Took the road north outta there and saw some different country.

Didn't take my camera out much today. Snapped a few on the way back North, when I had to stop and consult the GPS. Managed a few interesting roads on the way back.

Yeah, took a break from the "Dirt" for a weekend. That Russell I picked up on Craigslist is very comfy, I took a bit of a meander yesterday and after 300 miles the seat was still comfy, so guess that's good. Went' through probably a dozen showers, but nothing steady - was dressed for it though and stayed quite comfy.

DiggerD, yeah name tags would have been good. Nice chatting with ya though.

Missin' AX 2 Grind

The AX will show up, might be next outing tho.

Just a mistaken identity I think.

My take on this is to follow the money, er......wood in this case.

Check the milk crate that the wood came in.

People were helping others to bring food and supplies to the KP site.

I helped Zub with carrying his stuff.

I bet someone thought the ax belonged to the chap who brought the wood.

If we know that for sure..no problem, it will find it's way home. Otherwise there is a real possibility it is laying wherever you last saw it. I forgot about loaning it out until we got home and unloaded the bike. There was the sheath.....Phuuuuuuck.

No AX to be found.

Check the milk crate fire wood hauler.

Don't know the guy I saw bring the fire wood in but he was about my age with a full gray beard, baseball cap and glasses.
Very hard to make out the face.

Sorry MB. Did what I could.

Thanks for offering to ride up there and look for my Axe.

Thanks for running up there. Hopefully it will turn up. If not, that was an expensive camp fire. Suppose I should have went over and enjoyed it.

I think they suck!
I have a Gerber machete with the saw teefs on the back edge.
Blade is sharpened all wrong,,and saw teefs are powder coated over with the rest of the useless blade.
Took mine to Carson's Saw shop and had them do the blade and the teeth,,less than ten bucks,,both perfectly sharp and ready!
Stock Gerber stuff is for the Walmart weekend camper,,go back to any walmart and get another one,,the little saw inside the handle is a great one for de-limbing a deer for transport!
the hat-sjit,,not impressive,,long handle or short,,tho I have had use of them over the years.
Mystery bearded man with the hatch back, tailgate up, dog crate with fire wood,,,


,or the spirits of the native clans, rounded up and herded together under the "protection" of the government?
(that is actually QUITE A HEAVY PLACE/LOCATION if you think about the tribal's side of it.)
(gonna get back ,,gonna steal the whiteman's plastic axe)
You do know they were watching our every move,,don't you?!
