In case you haven't discovered it yet, to take your dog into Canada, you'll have to have written evidence of a recent rabies shot. Below is a link to some information about taking pets into Canada. I've found when travelling with our dog that it's more important to have the document when coming back into the US. For some reason they're concerned that the dog will contain something evil.

I'm enjoying the blog and the trip.

Thanks Tim...

I appreciate it all... I already have ALL his papers... he just had all his shots in October (20th) and have all the photocopies also of the vet's file!
Being a pit... I might have to disguise him... he will be a "Terrier"...

Thanks again...

Lunch with Paul and Voni Glaves...

It almost seems unfair to be here today... Friday... I remember the traffic jams... everyone getting ready for the weekend getaway... myself mentally abusing my mind to feed the hungry patrons of the late night restaurant scene... or trying to be the object of abuse by the capricious moods of the rich and not so famous billionaire clients, when catering in Naples, Florida, as a Personal Chef...
The brain waves screaming “WOW”... and “OH”... or was it “HO”... just don’t cease... whichever direction I am headed the scenery is just on a constant overdrive, so much that I just wonder how can I describe my being here...
But there was more today than just riding... seeing some familiar faces and a great time with Voni and Paul Glaves... and some... which I tried to put in words on my Blog...
Tomorrow is another great ride, the river drive to Presidio... I hear stunning... keep tuning in!



Be well... have a great weekend...

Hi Ara, and Happy Holidays to you and Spirit. We were just talking about you Thursday night at the Vortex dinner meeting...weather has been unusually warm here past few days......so the bikes have been out enjoying the reprieve from the cold days of last week.
Looks like you are doing well and your report is most awesome. Most enjoyable as I knew it would be. Take care and continue with your epic journey in good health and spirits... you are in our thoughts often. Hope to see you soon, although I have no idea where !!!!! Be well.

With the San Antonio riders...

This is in response to a comment on my thread on BMW MOA... “sensory overload”, truly I agree describes the indescribable... and after a while, a few days, one just wants to stop describing and just look.
Every few miles, a 360 degree span offers a new background, new silhouettes against lately the clear blue skies I have been spoiled with... the feelings are actually beyond the scenery, the space here itself is magical and spiritual as being transported in a different medium, which it is with no doubt. I have a tendency to always think about years back when it was the land of the Native Indians and sadness always occurs in my mind. I see families living here off the land, only using what their needs where, the children playing peacefully, the women going on to their chores... it is always the biggest puzzle for me as to what happened? How did this happen! They call life in the past “the dark ages”, I call the present years... “the dark ages”. None of the natives now are here and it was not so many years ago, their Spirits are still lingering, probably tearing constantly to the loss of their lifestyle and ancestry , manhood and civilization... It is to me one of the most mind boggling part of History... I am not even comfortable to the fact that it is now a National Park, sure, trying to conserve the beauty of it all, with rules and regulations needed for the masses that would ruin it all in a heartbeat... how sad would it be to witness some day a descendant of a family that lived on this land, walk to the front gate and pay his or her $5 to get in... can you feel his heart and emotions?... What a World we live in!... driven by greed... materialism and no fondness for the past in real sense... if it was... all the land would be given back... all of it!
NO... I am not a political person or would ever get political... this statement is purely from the heart!
On a different subject... it was a fun time meeting some of the San Antonio riders for a run through the Park, will also the presence of Voni and Paul... as written in my Blog...

Be well...

The West side of Big Bend and a bit more...

I feel today ever worse then yesterday, but the weather was too nice to stay cooped up...
One always feel better riding anyhow... right?
Just had to ride “Old Maverick” road one more time going the other way... with many stops
and pictures which you will find on the Blog...
Tomorrow will be a trip to the Clinic, I was told that there is one in a little town called Lajitas not too far... otherwise, will be a 160 miles round trip to Alpine! A Z-Pack has always done wonders in the past...



In the meantime, you be well...

Ara & Spirit

Yep, we've got two tent sites reserved. How long will you be there? Does that place have free WiFi?

I was looking at your photo albums and just noticed that you have that alien sticker on your bike. I have one of those on my ST3

Yes, somehow that Alien sums up my life!... Funny as I came accross a rider the other day that was abducted by Aliens... he even had an implant in his neck which he wanted me to feel... NO... thank you very much... also claimed that the Moon was artificially made of titanium which he felt when he was abducted...
Yes, they have free WI FI... The Restaurant has the worst food there is except breakfast... I always have good coffee... and Kosmic Xafe down the roads is awesome... The showers are... $2 for 6 minutes!!!...
Be well... Ara & Spirit
