Easier to weld it back together than fabricate a new one. Is it supposed to be bent?

Blood Moon

I think we're out of luck on the blood moon tomorrow based on current cloud cover...bummer.


Early tomorrow morning (Wednesday, October 8), a total lunar eclipse will be visible from North America,
East Asia, and some other countries that border the Pacific Ocean. This lunar eclipse — which coincides with
tonight’s full moon — should also be a blood moon; that is, it will take on a dusky red-orange hue as the
eclipse approaches totality. Furthermore, if you’re lucky enough to be on the east coast of the US, the
blood moon will set on the western horizon at exactly the same time as the Sun rises in the east —
you’ll be able to see the Sun and a total lunar eclipse at the same time — a weird quirk of celestial geometry
that should technically be impossible.

The lunar eclipse of October 8 will reach totality and be directly overhead in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
Those of you on the west coast of the US will see the Moon rise as normal, and then the eclipse will begin
at 1:17am (Pacific Time), with a total eclipse occurring between 3:27am and 4:22am.

Maybe the top of 4 peaks would be above the cloud line.

Calm after the storm

Blue10 and I did a short ride after the rain at Bulldog Canyon. The colors were unreal, the traction was perfect, and we saw a herd of deer walking along a ridge.

Perfect way to finish the day.

Ride Saturday

Aaron and Mike,

Great pics and it was to bad that the clouds were so thick to see the moon.

I am going to ride to Cochran this Saturday and from there decide where else to ride.

If anyone would like to join in we can meet at the Queen Creek Cafe at 8:00 to eat or 9:00 for the ride.

Take Care
Bill

Bill-

Stan and I are doing a ride Saturday, but nothing is concrete. We may join with you and friends, or feel free to hook up on our ride. We are going to firm up a plan tomorrow night.

Maybe ride friday and camp somewhere and finish Saturday.

Aaron,

Definitely let me know what your plan is. Can't do the overnight Friday but hopefully we can cross paths Saturday.

Take Care
Bill
