When we told

some of our neighbors here at The ADVentureLoft™ where we were going on this trip, they all said... "Oh, are you going to see Double Negative"?

That's why I love New York City in a nutshell. (no pun intended, but yeah, we're all nuts for living here)

Here's a neat website for details: http://doublenegative.tarasen.net

What's most interesting for me is that our stop there was the highlight of our day, not because of the artwork (which was, um, interesting conceptually), but rather on accounna the folks we met there.

Let me introduce

This hilarious band of Overton folks,



Who were just cleaning up from the 1st annual Double Negative arts and music festival. Bigger than Woodstock, bigger than anything. Don't miss it next year.



We chatted a spell, they really were cracking us up.

The ONLY way to get

across the Virgin River



is to kick it up to the Innerstate.

But we had fun along the way.

Gas & groceries

at Mesquite. We really loaded up 'cause it'd be a few days before we could reload.



and into the Arizona strip.



Plan was to explore the north rim.

Stopped for the day on Lime Kiln rd. I think this is where Francine started talking to me again. I believe the first words out of her mouth were, "Kinder and gentler my ass."



We set up camp.

Nice to see you back on the road...

No matter what or how you do it, I think all who have followed you adventures appreciate the effort and time that you put in.
Ride on...

M12 Day 2

Deeper penetration. Into the North Rim, that is.



We'd be trying to get to the edge at a couple of vista points -- Twin points, and then Kelly point. We would fail, twice.



A bit of a late start, 9am. It's tough to have a bad day out here.



even with all the washouts.

For orientation







Nutter twists. Highly recommended.



except when there's been torrential rain and flash floods, and the roads are trying to kill you. Except for then.

Bright eyed

and bushy tailed.



Urban sprawl:



I'm riding her bike though some mildly technical sections, but she's starting to get her mojo back.



Break time. She's smiling inside. Honest.

And then

on day 2, the most technical section of the whole trip.

The approach:



It's 112F, no shit. We walk the section.



It's steep and rocky. Fine. I ride her bike up, and it's a bitch. There's just no good line.

Of course, the photos never give it the right perspective.

The view from the top



It was like a mini-Bruneau canyon.

Yeah, baby!



'course Big Dog & Dingweeds did this very section when they carried on in M11 while we were nursing LDF's TBI. They sailed right over the section -- "yeah, it was a little bumpy for a bit" they said. On a stack of Bibles the rains had to have made it WAY more difficult now. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

We're starting to get

thirsty, and running out of water.

Check out how GREEN everything is... crazy!



That was an awesome section!
