    I need to get this back to the front where I can find it. Came in late & I'm only halfway through. Let me be the 427th--no, make that 534th person to tell you what a great writing style you have. No wonder so many have locked onto it.

    I could have used your "Make _____ Your Favorite" many times this year. Got to remember that one..... Now, back to reading.

    Whew! MADE IT! Blew through this report in about 24 hours. On to Death Valley!
    Well, actually it is noon on Sunday and I have laundry to do, a shower and toilet to scrub, a floor to clean, and a dog who wants to go to the river. I have been shirking my responsibilities enough this weekend. Yay OCD!

    This is another great Wan Report and deserves to be read by all. Especially those that say it can't be done. You two prove over and over it can be done if you just are to stupid to believe it can't.

    Little Wan your writing is a pleasure to read and makes the ride come alive for us that are not there. Big Wan you do amazing things with that school bus and take us with you.

    And thank you again for going thru these reports and making them readable again.

    Take care and happy riding.

    Hi there @Gale B.T. ,

    I saw you bumped this report and since I have way too much time on my hands I also re-read the RR. It was really fun to relive some old adventures. Thanks for the Idea.
    We sadly sold the big KTM since Kelly started riding on her own. We still ride quite a bit, albeit shorter distances and a little slower than before. That's not a bad thing, just different. I get so much pleasure watching Kelly ride it's crazy. I imagine it's how a parent feels when their kid starts riding. We've been riding trials almost exclusively for the last 5 years. It's been fun learning how to ride a motorcycle all over again. I highly recommend it if you haven't already ridden trials. It's never too late.

    Stay Safe during these crazy times
