The jacket is red with a yellow stripe, slips over the head and velcros under the belly. Let me know.

ps, just saw your AV ... pretty cool ... I almost used that one myself!
You must have been hitting the sauce kind of early my friend!...
... and you must not have been reading the Blog a single page for the past three months!
I am "Ara"... my dog is "Spirit"... , that was just too hilarious!... even though he is an Adventurer and I have thought often to get him an E Mail address and register him on AdvRider!!! Would be the first dog member! Just don't tell Baldy!!!
I will measure his neck tomorrow and will let you know... appreciate the offer!
You be well...

Ara... and my dog... Spirit

Inside the Mitchell Caverns... CA.



You have seen the campsite... this is the other side of the coin, I am pretty sure that is where I am!
I have not had a good connection per say for two days now!... some e Mails are coming in, few going out...
Time has totally lost its notion, the skies have been cloudy and the cold is settling in... perfect weather for the Caverns today...
Enjoy the pictures!... and be well.

Ara and Spirit

GEODE... my neck size is... I mean Spirit's... 18"!!!

Christmas Pass ride... CA.



A price shocker!... Maybe switch to a bicycle?... How much fun would that be?... with a sidecar...
Leaving Mojave, I don’t want to!... even with the knowledge that I will be back in a few days I am perplexed backtracking to Arizona, just a few miles away... I have to get my grey matters in motion as I will learn how to point and set up this Dish of mine... I have had so many thoughts this week about the direction of this Journey... and at the same time I experienced a great ride up... and through... Christmas Pass...

Enjoy... we did!

Ara and Spirit.

Back to Gila Bend, AZ.



20th Century technology... Hughes Technology... I guess the man that dreamed of the largest plane ever build has left an imprint which has made its way even into my life...

Today is the first time using my own Dish... set up by my own hands... and grey matter... I know all of you must have one hanging somewhere on your roof... I did not! It is fast!... and used at less busy hours... when the world is asleep around me, as I heard the expression... it is smoking!

A different route took me backtracking to Gila Bend, AZ... Wednesday it is back to again more desolate areas... this time... totally self contained.

Enjoy the comments... and be well...

Keep it up BeemerChef. I feel like I'm riding with you even if It's just via Internet.

Your dish


How do you store it in your rig? I have a popup too and want to get one but not sure how much space it takes up in the camper. Is it about $80 a month? How long does it take to go from stowed to online?

Ara,

You ought to take a picture of the dish and let them see what you are talking about.

In transit to Joshua Tree NP, CA.



It seems always to be a long day with the early sunsets, specially when we are trying to get to a destination to set up for a few days.
It did not happen today... lunch with a friend that drove all the way from Phoenix... meeting a French couple that wants a sidecar... and what are the chances for both low beams to go out at the same time?... Ill take it!!!

We are setting camp tomorrow near by Joshua Tree to explore it for a few days...
There was no sense looking for BLM land in the dark tonight!

Some of our day!

Be well...

Riding Joshua Tree NP, CA.

Hi Boojum... Hi Mystery... OK... Meathead... you too buddy!!!


I have been feeling like in another Planet (with capital “P”) since we have arrived here yesterday.
With my good luck this is an awesome campground, the most remote one as I found out today.
Isolation... total silence... Joshua Trees and many rocks... as you will see in the Blog.

Be well... enjoy...
