In an attempt to escape the July heat of Southern Georgia, and do something besides working all the time, I convinced myself many months ago that I could travel to Kalispell, MT, visiting a close friend and resident, for the entire month. Besides our hay operation, the cow program is relatively calm in July and I finally had acquired enough help to disappear. My wife and I had acquired Stella (24’ Class C RV) in the prior summer and had been wanting to do a family trip. Our son Silas (11 years old) flew out to spend a week with his grandmother in Lake Havesu, and we were to meet them at my wife’s aunts in Show Low, AZ for the 4th of July. So of course this all would require some motorcycles.
