Hmmm. Good question.

In other news, still no feeling in my fingertips . Well. Unless pain is a "feeling". Numb and painful. Not a great combo.

I camped all the way out to cali a few months ago and the best place I found was at Shiprock New Mexico.



It's in nowheresville on Navajo land, no roads to get there so when you see it, cut off the pavement and head North about 4 miles towards the big rock. No city lights, no noises, it was probably one of the coolest spots of the whole trip. Here it is looking back towards Indian Service Rt 13, it runs just south of the rock.

Beautiful! I've been around that area some, having come from CO, but never camped there. Great idea and I'll try and check it out on the return trip early April, when it would be a little warmer than now. You can get lucky and get an occasional warmer period this time of year there but it's probably a month to 6 weeks out from the great warmer daytime spring weather, and the annual Moab temptation.

Well, he and Wyatt went down there. Mongo with his KTM 450 and Wyatt with his KX 450. He called me ealier and they were screaming down the North Padre beach, down past the sign that says 4x4 beyond this point.

My fault, I was moving a thread and then it died...okay, not my fault, but I was on it when it went away. We'll see what's up. It has had some issues due to the data center move a few weeks ago. Not TWT, but routing/network issues.
