Prolog


It all started with me being sick of this:


Too much winter for this Buffalo Boy. And i gotz me a fever....a fever that cowbell could not cure.

So I tested out some options



These will sell..................but I ain't that type of consumer.

So..................while perusing the ADVrider Flea Market THIS Smoking Deal appeared.

Resistance was futile and the dispersive called...long distance from Houston.


I thought what a perfect idea for an adventure!

Use
the power of ADVRider, the Flea Market, Geode's Tent Space Thread, and Smugmug. Mix in a little BADWeb and the the tasty concotion becomes:

Houston

I tied up some loose ends and set my priorities



and started coordinating on Adventure Rider



I packed my bags more times that I want to admit publically.



Soon travel was involved............

Thursday - 04-19-07

First, Dog bless my wife letting me do this and for her patience during this entire endevour.
I left for ROC at the ungodly hour 4:00 AM.

Robert (Wilderness Jeep) met me at Hobby.

We went to eat here. Hot Dog in title.


No evidence remains. I had a mental lapse. I did not take any pictures of the kick-off meal.

Shame on me.

Soon it appears from the back of Krusty's Customs Cube Van.



As Freeeking Advertised. It is all there 1203 cc's of paint shakin joy, Happy Trails, PIAA's and an unexpexcted deelight......... a full package of Touratech foot controls.

Quote Stimpy: JOY!

Test ride.
Do the deal.
Sign the papers.
DONE!
We set about to preliminary wrenching and Trip Prep.

I had some unrelated bidness to attend to in HOU so it was a light night.

Friday - 04-20-07


My personal bidness took most of the day.

Robert was able to get some things done but our schedules were out of synch until late afternoon.

Pre-trip wrenching was in full effect. Signficant Progress was made.




Rade (Krusty Kustom) arrives with his tricked out GS-ADV.



That got Robert's attention.



I think Robert wants an GS-ADV REAL Bad. I am gonna see if I can make the Buell work as a simliar tool. Hey if ulendo can do it then why can't I.

If you have not noticed Robert has a BLACK DOG. (from the title)

Eventually the quest for MEAT took over.


It was precluded with festive assortment of crackers, sausage, olives & cheese.


leading up to the main MEAT course with the BIGGEST Potato I have ever consumed. It beat me and I have an appetite.


Rade eventually had to leave.
Thanks Rade....
I could not have asked for a better transaction and I will get the $$$ for the pegs to you.



and the MEAT was needed because we wrenched on



an on


and on into the night

And now a word from our secondary sponsor

HOT DOG



Nothing beats a Zweigles meat treat.

Where were we............Ahh yes Houston the night before leaving.

The Road to Team Redneck
Also known as
"That Yankee is gonna starve if he can't figure out that CRAWFISH."

We got an early start.....


but we had a lot to do. (and if I would have kept going I STILL would be packing.)

cue the music..........

So spare, so square, so fully packed..........that's my bag.



just right, so tight, a flashlight for night and a buff do-rag.




Dropped the extra gear off at UPS and upon our return our steeds called us.



Robert & I parted ways............MAN I owe you big time. I hope I can live up to the standards set by you.

It took longer for me to get ready than it used to take to get the Spiegel Grove underway.










Well at least I got underway.

The original plan was to stop in Beaumont at Al T's for Cajun with some ex-business associates. Unfortunately our schedules could not synch so maybe next time. (and there WILL be a next time.)

Oh look it's LOOOO-WEEESE-EEEE-AAAANNNNNANNNNNNNA!


Because of my piddlin' around
I was more than fashionably late...
I was horribly tragically late...
with a brisk pace across the Cajun State
I
eventually caught up with Walt (Team Redneck)

More Later
