Perfect example of when the cops interview 5 people at the scene of a crime, they get 5 entirely different versions of the story....

That's why I travel with my little note book.

Not saying you don't take good notes...

All the Best,
We never did slide down that one in Ecuador...

If you look closely, that's Whizzerwheel whizzing by! That slide is crazy fast.

Hey, Rick!

We may not be good but we're slow.

I think EC heard the cat coughing up a hairball out behind his bureau and when he looked, that's when he found it...

This RR is kinda like reading the old paperback & you find out it was written pre-computersbut still a good read...

I will add that "we" would have had more fun, if one of the cowboys hadn't got shot part way through the show.

I'm now still into serious study of Whizzer's trip with Whizzerwife in CR few years back... Costa Rica is looking better what with below freezing & white stuff blowing here...

The pre-computer comment is a dig on the time lapse between actual trip & RR? Not quality!!!

Oh, well in that case...thank you very much. I'm kind of a retro guy anyways. My family thinks that means crusty.

EC's really the captain of this ship though...

I'm a flip phone non text old fart & it's comical to think I'm "up" on anything...

'Getting shot' is part of the adventure in this case. Sorry it happened to Dave but it happened.

CR is a great ride. Do it.

Thanks for following along!

I'm into GRinCR's RR on CR. I'm ready to leave. It's so cold my chickens are vibrating trying to stay warm. When they drop an egg ya gotta catch it in dropping or they freeze & split. Never have I wanted to live in the tropics but I could use some equator right now!
Whizzerwheel seems to have recovered and now ready to slide into his senior years?
Like Phyllis Diller said...

Do you mean this one...."Don't go to bed mad, stay up and fight"? or this one..."I want my children to have all the things I couldn't afford, then I want to move in with them"?

I'm assuming the grim reapers coming cuz there's no motorcycle trip this winter...I have recovered, but I've got too many extra financial obligations this winter...

Hopefully I won't meet the grim reaper...But I might go crazy...
