I figured out some money solutions - But, my poor dog Winnie ended up back at the vets yesterday afternoon. My principal wasn't too happy about me missing Open House night (I asked a friend to tell her that I had a doggie emergency and put a note on my classroom door, but I found out today that she didn't get the message - oops)

What's another $186?

I picked up a flier on pet insurance.....

I sent you a pm, if you didn't get it I want to thank you for the kind offer of squishing into your camp spot!
Looking forward to the ride up to Wild Rose

Rob,
Rob, I'll be there Wednesday too.. We can talk about it on Sunday.

For others information. When you come in Wednesday or before, just check in with the gas station to pay for the extra nights. If you look on page 1 it says your campsite number ask nicely and I'm sure they will try and put you in that site..

If you speak Russian, that might also help.

(The gas station attendant and one waitress in the Restaurant were from Siberia..)

That's what I did for Wednesday and Sunday nights. Emailed them and asked nicely for the same spot for those nights

Death Valley seems like a logical place to move to if your from Siberia

It's just a little bit of sand. Give it some gas and concentrate on where you want to end up. You will go where you look. If you look down, that's where you go.

Thanks!

Where I've ridden the roads are lined with big rocks, big spiny shrubs and jumping cholla. I'm looking forward to trying to go faster in sand (lets face it -just be able to ride in that deep of sand at all) without the veering off the road consequences being quite so high!

Well my steering lock crapped out on me this morning when I got to work. I think I'll be ignoring that one. None of you drunk FFs. better move it around, that garage tent palace is sounding better and better.

No more time to work on the bike until I get back from Mammoth, on the bike list is skid plate, oil change, bark busters (hopefully I have time, they don't exactly fit), and maybe brake pads.

Have fun you FFKS. Rob from Alberta Canada will be heading down mid day tomorrow. He shall be driving a black dodge with tent trailer and riding a black Triumph 800xc. Keep him away from the Jim Beam Stag fellas or the streaking may begin! Keep an eye on our Medic we have the CBDR to do in July.

All the best, be safe

Sign me up for this. Not even sure of any specific destination @ this point in time, but this sounds like a good start

RIDE ON!
