That was a good trip. Even if just to work out what the 690 needs and what I just want.

Also good to learn that when riding in the company of jeeps, you need to be the scout, not the sweep.

Cool, looks like it was fun! Wish I would have gotten to spend some time with you guys.

over night...

so, its getting on hot... though it got chilly up near flagstaff for the Overland Expo camp... and Im thinking I would like to get in an overnighter before the big vacation in late July.

I'm thinking a day up to the Alpine area, build a fire, drink a beer, sleep in a tent, breakfast at the Bear Wallow, ride home. Probably a lot of pavement, but when it's 191, that's not a negative.

generally, I work sunday's... so friday morning up and saturday back would be easiest for me, but I could look into taking a day of leave on a sunday.

anyone?

You son of a b+h. You had me at beer, and then you throw in a picture like that...

This isn't going to be another one of those ones where I tell my wife I'll be home on Saturday afternoon and not roll in 'til after 11 PM, is it?

What weekend are you thinking?

I cannot control what you tell your wife...

If you wanna take off on friday again, then any weekend in June is open for me... so far.

I will put in for this Friday off today. Almost scored me a tent and some camping equipment, the guy sold it all off last night. I posted a wanted ad for tent and a couple other things.
