Hey Sam -- Next time! I think I still owe you a lunch from a Thunderbird Cafe question long ago.

Colorado City has reliable gas (Sinclair Station). Also a Chevron Station in Apple Valley on the way to Hurricane. None of the guys wanted to eat at the "Merry Wives" cafe in Colorado City. Perhaps too many rumors about breast milk as a creamy sweetner in all the baked goods and desserts. Opted for Mexican in Hurricane instead. Good call.

Ringokelly's range on the KLX I'm sure was fine. We were medium on the throttle going out. Probably got 70+mpg. He definitely needed to carry gas, but I think only a gallon would have been fine. I didn't keep careful track of mileage but I think Toroweap out to Colorado City gas station is 60-65 miles. St. George to Torweap via Schoolhouse was about 100. We all had gas to spare. Don't think anyone even hit reserve until we got back to pavement.

Funny thing, I think Ringokelly also has a red KLX. Keeps it elsewhere. The green one lives in St. George.
