    thought somebody had been going to fast


    [​IMG]


    turned out his bike had just quit

    so a lot of folks stopping to offer assitance

    phil gave him a gallon of gas & some else got back with another gallon

    he was on the phone with his wife trying to figure it out

    we said we were headed to where there were plenty of trailers let us know if ya need us to come back

    gave him my card and we rolled on


    thought we'd hear that he was good or not but never heard

    thne we rolled into downtown hot springs and into the campground

    with 2 options for supper we went with the pub instead of the brewery


    [​IMG]


    at the front door bouncer with a gun on his hip told us we had to wear a mask to our table

    so we did the banandas & buffs

    ordered our beers looking at the menu

    phil says now wait a minute we had to wear a mask to our seat but none of the waitresses, bartender or cooks are wearing them

    he asked and they said oh the govener has lifted the mandate since you've sat down:lol3

    we had the cajun patty melt :thumbup


    this was the old paddlers pub don't remember what they calle it now

    waitress was a hoot, living off the grid


    back to camp

    backing up again, thrusday night or afternoon, maybe someone else can correct the story and add pictures

    they're hanging out minding their own business when they hear tires squealing and tractor trailer that had lost his brakes turned over just past the bridge in the pic above

    it flipped off the hill onto some hiker cabins below, ( i think they were empty)

    caught on fire, then every so offen the propane tanks that heated those cabins one would explode

    i think the driver survivied, still to close


    over the mt, starting down the other side @knybanjo was signaling left turn


    [​IMG]


    i asked him later if he was signaling so hard because he knew i was back there :lol3
