now shes a happy camper




So, I'm forcing Bill to look at your sucky pictures (you suck + a gagilliion) and reading him the captions and he says "Wait! Robin lost her marbles?"

well, I guess i'd rather lose the liner than the jacket


anybody know anyone who wants to sell a xxl liner for a rainier jacket or L monarch

let me know

Oh man, I hate that. I'm sure you know this, but pick up a couple of windbreakers until you find suitable replacements. They will help a lot! If it's really cold, go old school and stuff some newspaper down the front to help block more wind. It works, DAMHIK. Bill was one smart cookie back in the day when we had no gear (much less, heated gear).


BTW, Robin and I would probably have all kinds of puppies, kittens and critters stashed everywhere if we traveled together. She makes the same kind of friends I do. Those were sweet looking pups.

Friday morn, feeling better about not making it to TWO, sence it was raining back there & sunny in tuba city

We made our way to the dorm showers, robins cold. Mine luke warm just like a high school locker room just a chrome pipe missing the shower head, with enough pressure to peal paint.

Got the maps out & tried to figure away to go look for liners. 300+ miles to the last place we aw them. Yea they were nice while they lasted.


We decide for quick, fast breakfast, saw mcdonalds sign, pull in, walk right iinto Navajo breakfast shop. We're looking at each other & I said didn't we see mikey Ds sign. She said yea, but this don't look like any mcdonalds I've ever been too.

We sat down ate, it was better than fast food for around the same money.


After we left we checked the mcd's sign.


now we're glad we didn't see the arrow.


Before we leave, robin pets this dog



Then she leaned up against the wall & smoked a malboro in the shade. The dog walked over laid down at her feet. When a bus load of tourist unloaded the first lady off pointed at robin then the dog & started rattling off some forgien language , people started piling off the bus & taking their picture.

I asked her how'd it feel to be the Navajo gal.




still laughing away we went

the day before, the old airhead had started to skip a couple of times in between 75 & 85. Thought it was because we were low on gas.

Hadn't thought any more about it.

After we did some shopping in cameran it started to skip some more. Hopeing it was bad gas I stopped in gray mountain at the only store. Only gas they had was 87 octane. I filled up anyway, another guy on a suzki something pulled in and asked about the gas I told there were more stations in cameran, he was gonna wait till he could get high test. But he did give me a shot of stabil.

& we're off

Continued on to flagstaff as long as I stayed under 75 she ran fine any faster and alittle skip. Found parts store, put in some new plugs.


Back to getting our "kicks on 66"



66 wouldn't let go of me, once again we missed our turn. We were looking for 13 or 3, After we stopped at a bike shop we found out it was call st marys lake rd.

Saw lots of real bikers



some loaded down with camping gear.

All most outta gas again we made it to either long valley or happy jack. We never did figure the name of town.

after topping our tank & checking out some of this mornings elk hunt successes




*WARNIG* SEMI gory picture, feel free to skip





now looking at these guys i'm thinking that would be a hellofa job to drag that outta the woods.

While we were at the north rim of the grand canyon.
Buffalo season had just started & I kept thinking if ya killed one it would be about the same as dragging a volks wagon bug out.


i'm not saying I couldn't do it, but i'm thinking it would take me about.....oh I don't know 100 trips

Before we left robin found a Navajo sex stone.

she was proud




that's right a fucking rock





My pa paw was called strawberry all his life, so ya know I had to go back for this




we went tru several small towns withbiker bars & one mirco brewery, but still full from lunch & skip getting worst. We kept rolling till we started dropping .




as we got closer to phoenix the tempture climbed to over 100



what can I say rolling into the valley kicked our ass, we hadn't hydrated like we should have that day. After spending most of the day with our jackets on. It was like riding straight into a hair dryer.

We stopped at store & filled up. I went in the store to find robin & she was in the beer cooler drinking Gatorade.



We went by go,az to see if they had spark plug wires, they said they could order them & if we wanted they could over night them and have em here by Tuesday


Yea I was gonna be back in ga on the job by Tuesday, so that would n't work.

I did pick up a couple of in line fuel filters.

We followed robins phone gps to resort. Reveiws said it didn't look like a hotel. but as I walk around i'm peaking tru the glass door at a big screen
I turn to robin say this looks like someones home.

A guy says can I help u. We tell him we're lost, he tells us how to get to the hotel.

Then he tells us he was just getting nakid to get in the pool when he herad us pull up.

TMI

We followed his directions next door. Hotel was nice.

Dude was nice guy, I still don't wanta see him nakid.


We grabbed some sandwiches at the store next door and ate in, hung out by the pool alittle and called it a night.

Saturday morning we slept in. Some where in the past week i'd lost my swimming britches, so we went to target. Pulled up people standing out front. Walked up to the door to see what time they opened about the same time dude unlocked the door it's all about timing


Shopping done we stopped at Fresh Squeeze, it was a tits & grits kinda place.

They sat us by the window so we watched the food & the waitresses.



service was alittle slow but the food was good.

Back to hotel



After a while I went got robins luggage & boxes for shipping, paid up our storage, while robin caught up on laundry & soaked up the ac.

Knowing I was gonna have a hungry woman at the hotel when I got back, I stopped at dirk bentlys whiskey row, where this cute gal sold me a burger & a cool one.






While i'm cutting burger in two, some gal bumps into me & says she wants to buy me a beer.



ok

now she says lets do a shot

ok


she says lets do another one

ok



now I've ate my 1/2 the burger got a box i'm putting robins 1/2 in, she says are you leaving.

I said yea I gotta take this samwich to the wife back at the room.


she slaps the bar & says that's f**ked up

she walked off muttering, came back before I finished my beer,

I said let me buy us a shot

ok now alls good
