    I'll be farming. Bring your shit kickers cuz you're my new farmhand. Seriously. Friday a few steers go to market and we've got 25 acres of hay to bale.

    No medjet just a 45 minute ride to the local hospital in all my gear, helmet included, strapped to a backboard. Goldwing is probably toast

    Damn, Rick, I guess I'll just have to stop by on my way to Utah and see how the Goldwing is doing. Hope she isn't toast.

    I'll give it a try but my feet are eaten up with chiggers and I have a hard time just wearing a regular pair of shoes. I'll bring the shit kickers just in case.

    If your on the farm you'll be kicking shit for sure.
    Max I looked at the map, your right next to the best riding in all of Wisconsin
    I'm still pretty gimped up but I finally got my ace KLR running. Had a bit of a setback with the water pump seal.

    Got to make a stop in Moline either on the way up or back.

    Did you get kidnapped in Moline? I thought that only happened on the south path at Atitlan.

    It would be cool to meet some of you jokers, for sure...(some again) but I will be staying closer to home by the looks of things. Maybe next year....

    I just got my bike off the ship in Norfolk Friday. Got home last night and looked at the ALARR thread. Guess I'm too late for this one.

    Yes it rained the first year. Chris & I drove our truck and brought a shovel. It was in the Rocky Mountain National Park.
    But wow, we had nothing compared to what is going on in Colorado now. The Park is closed. Estes Park, the town outside of the park where we went for coffee, internet, food and booze is being evacuated because of flooding.

    Just got back home to the hacienda, what a trip. Made it a little over 1400 miles on full tanks running mostly 75 and up. Took the ferry across the big river at Cassville and stop to check out the Road Dog at the moto meusem in Iowa. Laura and I had a great time finishing off the rest of our vacation. Maybe I can get some pics up sometime...
