Elba and I were home by 2 pm.
One of the best DVD weekends I can remember! (of course that's the first thing to go...)
Mr. Duck, as always, thanks for doing the dirty work.
Also thanks to Hey Frank and Hakan, for driving my girl over those dirty, dusty bits!
Elba says, "Thanks for being so nice. I had fun!"

See y'all next time!

Home about 4:30. I was, as is often the case, the last one to leave Beatty (I turned out the lights). Decided to go 190 to 395, where I failed to catch mrduck and his ducklings (little did I know they took Wildrose Canyon). Looked at my time and decided I'd like to avoid the two-lane part of 395 with all its truck traffic, so I took 14. Somebody had turned off all those wind machines on the hills in the Antelope Valley ( smile ), so for the first time in my experience, it was calm there! Stopped for lunch in Lancaster, slightly ahead of mrduck at that point, it would appear, and then took Mt. Emma Rd. and Big Pines Highway up to the Crest, then down to 138 and 15. A couple of bits of traffic on 15 and 215, but not too horrible.

It was a great weekend, with perfect weather on Friday and Saturday. It sure was nice to see everybody!

What a great DVD...! Sue and LBump are home.
Thanks for all your efforts MrDuck in putting this together. thumbsup And another thank you for the celebratory anniversary cake. The thought is what counted, because the dry Strawberry cake sucked and tasted like it was ten days old.
Though, the spice cake was good.
What can I say... Sue had a special anniversary in DeathValley/Beatty, NV with a special group! jaw

Home after yet another great day of riding. Tioga pass was stunning. Great idea Mark. I didn't get picked up by that bald eagle even though my bike might be small enough. Thanks Mr Duck for organizing Dinner. I was fortunate to hook up on some great rides on many new-to-me roads thanks to Mikko, Gary, and the rest of the "gang". Really enjoyed all the great conversations along the way.

Thanks to mr duck for keeping me on the right roads and for his usual outstanding organization.

Home last night, ended up riding all the way to ABQ day before yesterday. Droned along at 100 all day, invisible to cops. I never understand how I blow past the truckers, then an hour later, I blow by them again. Don't they ever stop to pee? They all waved at me as they got used to seeing me.

Add my thanks to Don Duck for the organization. Was fun to see and meet everyone, although the uh, ribbing began to get old by Saturday night. Get it? Didja get it, huh, huh?
