Hey that pool was nice....as you know first hand.

That Rose Garden is just plain crazy.
I couldn't see the real rough stuff from the bottom.

If you have been following his progress, you know he went through Tucumcari, NM, which is where the Clint Eastwood TV show "Rawhide" was filmed. It was also the place where the main action for his film "A Few Dollars More" was filmed...

He also got some kicks on Route 66. Apparently he had taken a detour onto that famous road in order to get around a snowstorm on Highway 40 - only to run into the traffic congested aftermath of a major accident involving a semi.

The temperature was around 5 degrees for most of the day, and Mark96 was right - the wind was about half of what he had to deal with yesterday. Apparently they are expecting a record low tonight in the area he is currently staying in - which is Grants, NM. He is going to curl up, snug as a bug, and hopefully get a good night's sleep before he has to head through some mountain passes in Arizona tomorrow...with 194 named ranges in that state, he is bound to see some interesting countryside...
Great stuff!! "A Few Dollars More", one of the series of 3 involving the man with no name...my favourite Eastwood movie, "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly"

Keep us updated on his travels

Orange would be nice but will have to stick to the 250 "scooter" for a while longer.

Hey Brian

Piffle, don't know if you're a big fan of pie. If you are, you are only 2 hours north of the best pies in the world. There is a place in New Mexico on US 60 called PieTown... supposedly named because they have the BEST. I stopped in there a few years ago on an adventure and enjoyed sweet potatoe pie. uuuummmm good!
Careful though, you might blow by the place at Piffle speed and miss it....it's pretty small

Photo Disc - 2whlrider and BackRoader...

Nice shots Mark!

I have your address but I need 2whlrider and BackRoader to PM or email me with their snail mail addresses.

Light coating of snow today, not much but enough to remind me that I shouldn't be here

Gene and Neda

Met some very interesting fellow adv'ers in Moab. Actually ran into them on 3 occassions. Twice at McDonalds and once at Buck's Steakhouse. Gene and Neda are from Toronto and are about 5 months into a 1.5 year ride to the southern tip of Argentina. They rode through Winnipeg in June.

Here is the link to their RR on adv
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ght=lightcycle

and here is their very cool personal travel site that they update regularly from free wifi hotspots such as McDonalds
http://www.ridedot.com/rtw/1.html

I am so glad I ran into them and enjoyed a java or 2 over some fabulous conversation...I will be following their adventure online.

Have been following their trip for a while. I am sure they have some great stories. They are truly living the dream

Spotted Sporadically

Brian finally got in touch to say he is with Bent Forks in Mesa - and not splattered in the middle of the freeway on the outskirts of town, as his SPOT seems to indicate. Says he started the day riding in -10c weather, and ended it at +27C...

Phew....
