    to offer to schlep us all the way back down to the airport even though it was totally in the wrong direction from her home. :bow

    Mount Rainier seemed to float above the earth:

    We said our good-byes, and see-ya-laters...

    Always a treat to follow your continuing adventure.

    Let me know if I can assist with some fun GPS tracks through southern BC for Mobius V.

    Funny you should mention that... 'cause at the airport, we were already starting to think about Mobius-V... and we saw a sign:

    So I may just take you up on that offer. :thumb

    We found a bar/restaurant, and spent some time eating, drinking, looking at tiny photos on the camera screens, recounting our adventure, and debriefing :brow:

    in NYC, just like when we had left,

    we made our way up a deserted Broadway the last two blocks on foot since the cabbie wouldn't drop us off north of Houston since it was in a different "zone" from the airport. :rolleyes

    waiting outside our door was a package... Hey Roy... I have your case cover, and we owe you a new stator. :deal

    Guys, this trip has been a morning staple for me for quite some time. I've really enjoyed going along for the ride, watching the growth that has happened in both of you and also seeing the way you two communicate. It's fantastic.

    Let me be the second to offer services in routing through southern BC. There's a ton to be experienced, with more than a few vistas along the way. Also, if you haven't already, www.dualsportbc.com is an excellent resource for finding routes through BC. We can help you out.

    PS: I first heard of Sweetcheeks from this report. Since then, I recommended them to my Dad for his DRZ, and he rolled for 6K miles in booty comfort up to Inuvik, NWT, and back this summer.

    Yeah, good to be home in the land of lazy bastard rip-off artists. Hope you saved the receipt and that passenger information tag they handed you on line at the airport. I'll be happy to help you make a complaint...

    Did you guys ever watch the show Twin Peaks? Snoqualmie Falls is shown in the opening credits. I always wondered where that footage was shot, and now I know! Thanks! :D

    Indeed - although only hearing one side of the conversation and imagining the other side's a hoot in itself. :lol3

    I second that motion. DSBC has to be one of the most supportive bunch of Dualsport fanatics on the planet. Anything and everything I know about riding dirt in BC has come from DSBC Members.

    After reading this RR from the start I came across this gem of a sig line if there ever was one.
