    I guess this is what it means to be "upside down" on your car. Probably the owner was "upside down" figuratively, and their solution was to be "upside down" in reality.

    I seem to remember finding a crashed vehicle in the desert the last time I rode with Nightstalker. Coincidence?

    I think we found a crashed truck on our prescott ride too, on 24 between 7 springs and bloody basin.

    I don't know how you can ride in that heat. Don't tell me it's a dry heat.

    METZ!! BUDDYPAL!!

    It was actually a little chilly up at 5000 feet on Montana Mountain. But, it was damn hot by the end of Telegraph Canyon though.

    Temps were good! I'm planning on going back out there and riding FR-342 to Oak Flats. From there heading over to Pinal Mountain and Pioneer Pass. Probably not this weekend, but maybe next. I'll post when I know for sure.
