We thought we would go visit Empire but decided on lunch at Bruno's after we slipped out in the thick mud. This happened in view of the HWY, and in order not to totally look stupid, we got the bike up pretty quickly. When the back tire began to dig into the mud, I got behind the bike to help push it out. To be rewarded with a nasty spray of thick Playa mud all over me. Another one for the team! :) We were glad the bike was wearing the dirt bike tires.
I walked to where the ground was firm, as he rode through the mud. I jumped on wearing my mud suit, and we went to Bruno's for lunch.
MMMM. French Dip and Burger. I consumed three glasses of ice cold Coke in like 5 minutes.
Headed out of town we saw this awesome Red, White, and Blue truck. I am a sucker for Americana folk art.
Due to the mud incident, we decide to skip Empire and go back the way we came.
