The rockettes are still there according to MrsErnbo who physically saw them yesterday. They are in the grass, behind the Crepe Myrtle, under the base of the tree, enjoying the monkey grass. Bring glasses....

Took me a minute to find the twins, no thanks to Huell Babineaux who is now employed as a nosy DFM security guard. ;)



After arriving at my destination the twins and I had a long talk, and they told me how much they wanted to get back to their roots. I said not to worry, I understood, and that I would take care of them.

More to come...

Where are you at? If you are in Beijing, you need to swing by and see my brother.

The twins are back home, resting comfortably on a hillside overlooking a peaceful water hole.



Be careful not to take a swim when you go to pick them up. A decent set of tires may prove useful.

33.712895 (close)

Since this is a little off the beaten path, I've included a short video to help show you around: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8hrGSTKquo Simply knowing where this is is just half the challenge.



And a few more pics to help point you in the right direction.

Does the video of the bike going past the twins count?

OK. The PC has been fixed and she is back and ready.

And this tag is a good sign because when I took her out
for a test run last night, I found out how water proof
she is.

I do have a good set of tires and I'm pretty sure I have
enough duct tape to attach some Wellies.

My hesitation comes because of the hesitation I observed
in various spots in the video. But I still like a good challenge.

I confess to hamming it up a little in the video. It's actually a pretty easy trail.. or was before last night's rains.

Note, you may want to apply a liberal amount of DEET or similar as Psorophora ciliata have been confirmed in this area. One got me a month ago and hurt like hell. Fucker was aggressive and persistent until I swatted and stomped.
