What a treat - thank you very much!
Folks sometimes ask, "When's a good age to give up riding?" My response is usually "Why?" or "Shut up and ride."
Health issues have forced me into reevaluating my riding habits....I need to ride more! I've had a little electronic monkey forcing my lower heart muscle to dance in tune with the upper for a few years now....makes me think about time and what to do with it.
Good on you for getting out there....maybe we'll bump into each other on the trail....
What part of Wyoming?
I hope to be passing through SW in a few weeks. (Smith Creek to Cokeville up to the ridge east of there and south to Utah.)
If it's at a high rate of speed there could be all kinds of medical mysteries to be solved...
THIS is my current fortune telling talisman. Two weeks out is looking pretty good.
Parts is parts.
Hi Metalcarver! I met you at the Dungeness Camp ground a week or so ago and talked with you about your up and coming trip. Looks like an epic one for sure! I rode up from Penny Cr today and then down to the Dungeness camp ground (which is closed now) and over to Slab Camp rode via the Slab camp creek/Deer ridge trail head. A beautiful day today.
Looking forward to more of your great reports! Thank you! Oh! wanted to say, looking at your web site your work is absolutely fantastic!
I'm in the NE part of the state - Gillette - surrounded by a dozen or so surface coal mines. . . . it is the one area of my home state that I don't encourage folks to visit.
When I was in Alaska i was offered a job out of Casper and, at least at that time, the cost of living in Casper was higher than Alaska and wages were lower.
Isn't it great how our roads sometimes open up and you can see stuff even a hundred yards away!
I haven't been over to Penny Cr. or Lord's Lake area so more to do there. I was just thinking of a route from Slab Camp to Discovery Bay that my brother took me on a few years ago. We could show people how to avoid the trauma and congestion of Greater Blyn!
See you down the trail.
BTW fine machine you have there.
Anymore, they just wave me through going up Hurricane Ridge.
Hell, I was born in Gillette.
Went on a shakedown cruise to the west side. And nothing fell off! Just sorta fergot a coupla things Headed past Forks to the Hoh Mainline road and down to Copper mine Bottom Campground. Definitely not Idaho.
Carried a ten foot pole for the tarp and that was the solution. Now just string the tarp waist high then push the pole up . So you can unpack and set up camp in the rain without soaking everything.
Quiet little campground right on the river.
And back east through the park and Forks.
It was a dirty job but somebody had to do it.
Lot of advantages to a hack!
Not to mention a full size camp chair and you see where the guys down in Oz take cabin tents and cots. I might need one of those cargo boxes.
Did I mention cooler?
The Africa Twin with the side car rocks! Hummm. I was on the other side of the Olympics today. Hamma Hamma river falls. Don't mean to hijack your post, it's just that the Olympics are looking good at the moment.
i think I saw 3 cars on the whole length of the Hoh Mainline. Only 2 spots taken at the Copper Mine Bottom Campground. Going to rain for a spell though...
And I don't consider it "My" thread. It's that there's a growing concern about all the unsupervised geezers roaming the continent. We need to band together before it's too late! And remain hopeful that when we run into each other that it's not at a high rate of speed.
Lookin good Mr. Metalman! I didn't know you traded off the Starship for a AT! Right on!! Happy travels big guy! Cheers
Never traded off Ivanka but I do believe she's going on the block. My new hack gets the same mileage and more than twice the horsepower as the Ural. No 2wd but that was not used much and no reverse but it's 150lb lighter. In every other aspect of sidecar handling and performance the new rig is better.
Somebody told me you were agitating to be the monkey in the desert 100 next year. Maybe misheard...
