The final approach

to Adventure Motorcycling's Shangri La









It's not a super-secret hideaway anymore... it's the 3-Step Hideaway!



But we were there when they still had a vicious guard-horse patrolling the perimeter.

Yes, photo processing takes time and effort

Me: Long pause.

3-Step Hideaway

The shadows was getting' long by the time we hitched our rides to the Cantina,



We were shown to our quarters, freshened up, and got a tour of the place,



Verrry nice,





I'm sure it looks a little different now knowing the plans those two had up their sleeves.



It was exciting to hear all their plans and dreams for the place.



We had another lovely dinner,



and spent the evening with our feet warmed on the portable campfire, watching the moon rise from the front porch.



The moon was so bright you couldn't hardly see the stars and it almost hurt your eyes.



Day 7 stats: 132miles

Day 8 Mobius 12

Rest day. Hang out day, have fun day. Little bit of bike maintenance day.

LDF got up before me. I remember that because she never gets up before me, so I marked the calendar and I'm going to celebrate that day every year. :loll



The view out our window when I got up.



Our digs,





I don't know, maybe I was hungover?



I can't wait to go back.

We took a little ride

in the mule to check out the property,



First we went up to check out the water tanks, and we got a nice overview and were able to appreciate the lay of the land.



the valley to the north, (the road we'd come in on)





Then we checked out the valley,



Tons of trails leading practically in all directions,

It was a beautiful day







More trails,



We explored almost all the way to Colorado, I even got to drive,



Did we ever figure out what this thing was?



Thanks for the tour! See you soon.



How's this for a backyard?



We had some more great food and great company, and slept like babies again, but the weather forecast was a little dicey, so we planned on getting up early to beat the rain.

Aw Crap!

I miss the start of this Ride Report for 1 day and I'm 10 pages behind?
What gives?
Are there members of "Team F5" just lined up around the block waiting all night for the Report to start?

Anyway, I'm "IN!".

Unfortunately the Honey do's never end, you can only postpone them for so long.

Funny, that is my same response. When people ask me what retirement is like, I answer "it is everything you think it would be". If you see it as a burden then man don't do it.

The world will always live up to your expectations.........onward
