Ya, we do have a pretty high Senior population...but in reality, it's the middle age people that have a hard time even seeing those signs

Diane and I met Greg (BackRoader) and Janice at the Madhouse last night. Shared lots of laughs to the point that my abs hurt. Of course the drinks and food were great as always. And Feliz even left us with a few presents including an air filter for my WR250R (thanks Gord!) and this large beer mug.

Hope to see you guys again in January Greg and Janice. Thanks for the hospitality Feliz!

Here is a photo that Greg snapped from his phone.

Here are some shots, the remains of the 14 Semi pile up near the Granite Mine west of Vermillion Bay.

Apparently minor injuries, probably a lot of shit stained underwear though.

Finally got my trip video done from our ride to Utah etc. Had to trim quite a bit as there were over 700 pics to choose from. These are not the best pics but really the ones that point out some of the highlights.

Very nicely done Garth. Great trip. Had the pleasure of a few of those places in 2006.

All good, even the last part was a great adventure of its own. Lots of road snacks and bad coffee.

Great video. And excellent choice of tunes. It's like you have access to my mp3 player. Really like the Lighthouse (1849) toward the beginning. Outstanding photos too.

Re: the video

Got a couple folks that cannot view it on their phones or other mobile devices. Also it wants them to install Adobe.

The reason for that is that the video uses songs that are known to be copyright. I could dispute it under "fair use" laws but I think I will just look to other options. It was just a travel video and not something that I am willing to go to court over.

Friday was our most recent ride. The next day the snow came, and now the cold weather.
