    The night prior to this mornings picture we were in an earthquake. Some of you might have heard the 6.3 just SW of Mexico City? We were right smack dab on top of it. First (of three) earthquakes I was in on this ride. Amazing. Never experienced them before but I actually really liked it being safe in an open field.

    My buddy and I went on a trip from Upstate NY to NC for our college spring break. We dropped our bikes and my bike had substantial damage. I ended up losing a headlight and therefore couldn't ride at night. We were on the blue ridge parkway and it was getting dark so we got off and found ourselves in the sticks, NC (Little Switzerland). We were in some random town and found an abandoned house. It then became our campsite.


    It was a little creepy to say the least. It also didn't help hearing gun shots all night...

    We also bought a confederate flag thing and put out our america bandana to deter any rednecks from killing us in the night

    So I saw this 1977 BMW R60 on Craigslist, and had always wanted one, so decided to go for it. I was working my first "real" job, and thought that the time was "now!" I'm a little impulsive when buying things sometimes, which usually pays off, and when it doesn't, I just sell it afterwards. This bike happened to be 500km's away, but the seller, who was pretty straightforward, mentioned that he had had quite a few calls about the bike. It was 5 in the evening Dec 23rd. I called my friend, borrowed his pickup, and headed north into -17 degrees celcius weather @ 5 the next morning with my very new GF. You can probably see the rubbermaid tote in the back. I'll get to that.

    I picked up the bike not knowing what to look for, but was a sucker for it, I knew I had to have it. $2000 bucks later, it was mine. We loaded it up and headed south... right into the heaviest snow I've seen in years with a P/U that had some shitty all seaons (what a stupid name for tires that are anything but). If anyone has driven Hwy #1 between Hope and Cache Creek, you know how the road falls off into the Fraser river canyon. Somehow we kept it on the road for about 20km's as the snow kept piling up, until we saw what? Bright lights at the Lytton campground? How convenient! I ran into the store and asked the woman how much to camp. She told me that there were no sites, the campground was closed for the season. I told her that I was going to be camping, whether or not she took the money or not, threw some $ at her and headed out to the far far end of the parking lot, broke out the Rubbermaid, and set up the tent and got to cooking on the stove I brought. Xmas eve dinner was some wine, KD, and broccoli. I gave my GF the down bag, and I took the too cold synthetic.

    Went to sleep and woke up to this Xmas morning

    except with a lot more snow, because this was the view before I went to bed.
    Never licenced the bike, it needed SOO much work that once I had it running, I just wanted to get rid of it! Still with the same girl, and she still loves camping. Bought her her own down bag too!
