    decided to quit our jobs,
    [​IMG]


    leave our wives
    [​IMG]


    and pack up our bikes for the road.

    Everybody said we were fools

    We left Hollywood behind
    [​IMG]


    and headed south on the Golden State Freeway.
    [​IMG]



    You could say we had no particular destination in mind.

    We just decided to go with the flow and see where the road might lead us

    Before long we saw an exit for “Disney Land Drive”
    [​IMG]

    Ahhh…Disneyland: a place I’d always wanted to go as a kid
    [​IMG]


    This deserves a stop, for sure!

    When we found out it was $60 each to get through the gates















    We decided we’d try to sneak in through Jessica's rabbit hole instead

    But unfortunately some Mickey foiled our plans

    A bit farther south we spotted
    [​IMG]
    Two interestingly-shaped buildings




    That were calling out to some deep part of our being

    We just HAD to get closer and find out what these mysterious buildings were.
    [​IMG]





    The whole place was surrounded by fence
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]












    And it was hard to get a good look
    [​IMG]
    At exactly what was going on down there













    Finally we found a sign that explained the history of the place.
    [​IMG]








    We were surprised…and a little bit disgusted,
    [​IMG]
    To learn that it was a sweatermeat-packing facility…:huh

    When we got close to San Diego
    [​IMG]


    A glimmering steeple caught our attention
    [​IMG]



    Exiting the freeway we found a Mormon temple.
    [​IMG]




    We asked to see the inside but were told that we had to be on “LDS”:dunno
    [​IMG]
    They said we could convert but we decided against that idea








    After learning that we’d have to give up all but one kind of :beer
    [​IMG]




    We bought a T-shirt
    [​IMG]
    and were on our way:ricky

    Somebody had told us that “Corral Canyon OHV area”
    [​IMG]
    Is a fun place to ride a 430 pound motorcycle[​IMG]








    There’s a campground there called “Bobcat Meadow”
    which seemed as good a place as any to lay our heads for the night.






    We stopped in the nearby town of Pine Valley
    [​IMG]



    For water, firewood, pizza and beer

    Before riding the last few miles
    [​IMG]



    And setting up camp in the dark

    Isn’t adventure grand?

    The next morning at breakfast
    We were surprised to run into
    A rag-tag group of adventuring hooligans
