Bikes guns and shine

Bikes, guns and shine, what could possibly go wrong?

Advtenn and I (rabbot) headed out from ETN and WNC respectively, for WestFest followed by RMAR.
Two tigers, couple of hand guns and some of Tennessee's finest sipping whiskey.
Nothing much happened today but we are only twelve hours into this.

Going to try and post some pictures here in a minute. This is all being done on a smart phone please bear with

Yep it's Kansas.
Posted this on my facebook wall as we drove through.

Flatter than a tabletop
Makes you wonder why they stopped here
Wagon must have lost a wheel or they lacked ambition one
On the great migration west
Separated from the rest
Though they might have tried their best
They never caught the sun
So they sunk some roots down in the dirt
To keep from blowin' off the earth
Built a town around here
And when the dust had all but cleared
They called it Levelland, the pride of man
In Levelland
James McMurtry

Just seemed so fitting

Dang it! Where was I for THAT ride!?! I guess I'll have to go down and do it by myself. Is it easy to find Gold Camp Road on the map, or is it a number?
