Talking

Jarrett is home visiting from the Air Force for a week but I’m leaving on a business trip Monday so today was our only chance to squeeze in a ride together before he splits......my daughter Caitlynn joined us too....I promised Caitlynn we’d ride something close/easy/new(to her) and I wouldn’t make it too long of ride..
We loaded the bikes and drove over to Tamarisk Campground at 8am.....off to Grapvine/Jasper/Culp......breakfast at Jilberto’s in Borrego Springs....over to the copper creatures...then reverse track....nice/fun/scenic ~50 mile loop with breakfast break in the middle.....

ALWAYS fun to ride with the kiddos! Jarrett is off to Trashcanistan in January so not sure when we'll be able to do it again......

Bikes unloaded at Tamarisk Campground:



Let's get this party started!



First rest/water stop heading up Jasper TT



Caitlynn coming up Jasper Trail:



Jarrett wheeling up Jasper TT:



Jarrett has a hard time keeping the front wheel down......here he is along Culp Valley TT



Lookout high above Borrego Springs on S22:



Breakfast in Borrego Springs at Los Jilbertos:



CA. Burrito Breakfast:



This pic proves I was there........breakfast shot at Jilbertos:



BIG birds in the desert:



Caitlynn doesn't look too enthusiastic? (and it was her idea!):



Cowboy Jarrett:



Elephants in the desert???......who knew?



Two Creepy Dinosaurs:



Three Creepy Dinosaurs:



Did I mention these cooper structures are BIG?:



Give yer sis a boost!:



Dinosaur Races:



More Dinosaur Racing:



Hanging with Da Dinosaurs:



Dinosaur goofing:



Those dinosaurs can be vicious....stepping on Jarrett and lifting Cailtynn to its mouth!



2 up on Culp Valley TT:



Jarrett self portrait with his sister:



Rest stop along Culp Valley TT......we rode up and down Culp a "Culpa" times .....fun trail



The Old Man coming up Culp Valley TT:



Caitlynn headed up Culp Valley TT:



Splat:



Along Gravevine Canyon:



Intersection of Grapevine and Jasper on the way back to the truck:



Cold skunk beer (Coors Light) at the end of a days ride.....



Hope to see the boy again after his deployment late next Spring......glad we got to spend another day riding together.....

Crawdaddy,

Great pics! I only hope I get to enjoy as many good times with my boys (4 and 7) as you have with your kids.

We're heading to Texas for our next set of orders to live on the Gulf, so it looks like boating rather than riding will be in order for the next few years, but your pics have me determined to get them out riding.

Tell your son thanks for the all the JP-5

Cheers,

Vern

He spent the last week in New Orleans refueling F15s…..they put him up in a suite in the French Quarter…...not a bad gig

Very cool pics, stay safe over there.

My son Tanner is 13 and started racing D37 at the end of last year, big step for him, very cool watching them grow into skilled riders. He now wants a dual sport bike to ride the longer stuff. Cant wait for that time.

Chris I will be in your shoes too soon, they grow so fast, not looking forward to that part of it all.

Although I know time flies, I got a while for that. My boy played his first t-ball game on Saturday. But he's a rock star already and in his last soccer season he scored 100% of the teams 13 season goals. The best part is that he got his mom's good looks, without the boobs, of course.
