Ricardo,


Glad you can make it, see you in the morning!!!



Dave,

It will be great to see you and Karla again and I am looking forward to riding with you again. You're right about the weather it will be nice. It could be a little cooer than I thought, the low in Young is going to be 37 degrees.

It’s funny you mentioned Antlers Prime Rib. When I booked the room the Motel made sure I knew it was prime rib night!!!

Some highlights of yesterday's journey:
CrownRoyal hits warp speed climbing fours peaks.
RickCool gets a flat tire.
CrownRoyal gets so angry that we are slow he rips off both of his mirrors so he doesn't have to worry about looking back.
I return to group to aide in pinching a fresh tube.
Tube#3 installed and holds air.
Gulliver waits patiently as does CrownRoyal atop 4 peaks.
The rest of the group begins the ascent.
CrozB and Ricardo hear a side by side crash and run to their rescue and assist in righting the wrecked vehicle.
As a reward the two young knuckleheads meet AZtinbender and wife (Kathy) in apex of curve and barely avoid collision. Bike on ground side by side driver speeds off and nearly hits me.
Atop 4 peaks it is determined that CrownRoyal hates AZ more than I do and wants no part of his affiliation and tears off his plate.
Shortly thereafter side by side driver passing another nearly sends me off the side. Oh yeah he was passing in a blind curve.
On our way down the mountain I met up with a cow that wanted to say hi. Luckily she decided that there was more grass to eat farther down and moved.
CrownRoyal was greeted by some nice officers at the bottom.
Of course I couldn't keep my mouth shut and explain the OHV rules as they were explained to me. After much time we went our separate ways.
CrownRoyal flipped off the cops ran the stop sign and hauled butt to lunch.
After lunch the cops were following CrownRoyal around Roosevelt Lake.
He noticed they all had tazers, so he borrowed one of my mirrors to make them go away.
After fueling up RickCool and I headed home on the Apache Trail.
We had a very pleasant ride. A bit warm but not many bad drivers so it was a very good ride.
Oh yeah only one incident, we stopped at Tortilla Flats and found out that they turned the stream into a giant port-a-potty. Well at least that's what it smells like.
-the end
