    I rode up and down 76 again early this morning and still couldn’t find ODC. Turns out he was waving at me from his way cool campsite, but I couldn’t see him as he was down in the shade. I get back to Sipapu and there 40E910D6-0AB1-46A5-B52A-D492309C8A39.jpeg he is. We sat around partying with some of my old friends and a grand old time. However, I still owe him lunch which requires another attempt at a shindig somewhere before snow time.

    Sorry we missed at the Camp.
    Maybe next year? I'm
    I'm up to that meal at that Italian-Mex joint in Ft. Garland
    here in the next few weeks. I need to make a trip to Apex to
    get Re-Tired .Might as well work it in to that trip around
    Leaf changing time. Let me know when you want to
    Rendezvous. Yes, that Fr 76 is a little worse for wear. (A shit metric ton of cauliflower to cantelope sized baby heads and washouts to Ricochet off from. It's a little easier attacking it from the south than the North. Got gravity working for you.
    Fall is in the air today. In the 60's here. Uintah's got snowed on
    Yesterday. Over and Out.
    ODC.

    Fuck Fuck Fuck.
    WATCH OUT!!!!!!
    FOR WildLife Folks.
    Happened in a instant.
    A deer hit me doing about 50. Me doing 50 knot
    the deer. I m OK but Dora the Explora took a good hit.
    I ricoched to the left off the dirt road into the bar ditch
    Got slowed down before Dora decided to lay down a little
    Hard. Forks Dont look bent, snapped the instrument cluster
    Right off. Probably a 1000 dollar fix knowing Triumph.
    Scary Scary Scary.
    Oh well that's probably it for Dora this season.
    She will get reconstructed this Winter.
    Be AWARE cause SHITT happens.
    ODC's good to Go.
    ODC.

    Yeah!
    My thumb units, right ass cheek and shoulder are feeling a little
    Whopped up on.
    Anyone got a tig welder within a couple hundred miles of here?
    Working on removing the faux beak on Dora. I figured out where
    Cast aluminum appendage that protudes out and holds
    everything snapped at it's thinnest weakest point.
    Triumph wants $800 for it. I don't think so!!!
    Therefore the need for a tig.
    Randman it will prodbably be towards the end of the month.
    When the leaves are moAr purdee. I'll get in touch.
    WATCH OUT for Dear fuggin Deer.
    O ouch D deer C coming

    just back home and getting caught up on some reading....not what I wanted to see, tagging a deer on the Triumph!
    could have been worse, bike stuff is a relatively easy fix compared to bones

    Damn dude, glad you're alright! I swear deer have a competition amongst themselves to see which one can get off'd first. Irresistible force paradox championship.

    Saturday was a good drunken night on the town after Blues and Brews. This came on at the bar, and made me smile! Most people don't appreciate the humor of the Bloodhound Gang, it may be deemed inappropriate, but so am I, so....
