On following dreams... about 15 years ago I decided to get back into motorcycling. My first long roadtrip was to Death Valley. I ended up at The Amargosa Opera House one afternoon. I got what was then a $50 room. Complete with the stained tile, dripping faucets and bare bulb light fixtures. I think the same dead bugs are still there on the rug.

What was different was, Marta and her husband were there and performing that evening! Myself, four German tourists and a nice French couple were guests at the hotel. Two couples from Pahrump NV. heard she was performing and drove in for the event. I knew I was seeing something special. It is still one of my best stories from the road. Quite a woman with a heckuva story.
