    Hi all,

    I have finally loaded all of the pics which Photobucket will allow.
    It was tough to reduce them down to the max amount allowed, but as always I persevered, and won.

    The amount is daunting and mostly personal. In other words you may or may not like all of them. But they will remain there for the next week. Then I will remove them. So if you would like to save any please do so.
    No thanks or ridicule is required but both emotions will be expected.

    Here they are..................:D

    Scot,

    So where is this discussion moving to exactly?

    It was great meeting you on the ride and getting all the KLR tips. You and Drew are genuine, cerifiable KLR knowledge banks! :D

    I may be in town and would be interested in McCarthy that weekend. :wink:

    Also, I need to catch up with you on some other things. Can you call me at 907-250-0327 sometime?

    Thanks,

    You are very welcome, my friend.
    It was such a great ride and such a special place.
    A once in a lifetime ride for most, a repeatable ride for us.

    We are the Dashers!..............:nod

    A bad poem for the gruvers.
    By Gusgus, (not Mrs gus either)

    We did our ride
    To Inuvik
    We all did hide
    our concerns

    Tough as steel
    it would need
    we would feel
    every mile

    evening rests
    we required
    did our best
    at 500 miles

    the dust was thick
    the gravel ridges
    a GS pick
    Knobbies worn

    Gruver votes
    were added up
    each promotes
    were considered

    The lucky few
    adorned with pride
    we knew who
    when midnight came

    The future is
    to be safe
    the riding biz
    the Gruver name

    Gruvers (yahooooooo) and,,,,,,,,,,
    We is Dasher's now!!!:rilla
