It all seems to go back to June of 09 when I tried to catch up with LawnChairBoy A.K.A Uncle Jed while in Tidewater buying my (A.K.A Jethro) GS.

We didn't make it.

So, we tried again at New Years while we were visiting friends.

We didn't make it.

So, in January while helping a friend pack up to deploy to Afghanistan we tried a third time.

Drinks were had. Lots of German food. Philosophy and scotch were discussed and the Torrey seed planted. It went like this...

"Dude, you need to come to Torrey with me"
"Dude, I don't have 3 weeks to ride out there and back"
"Dude, don't be such a $%@%^@$%@$%@ %^#^&$^$ (recording is garbled here, seems scotch spilled on the recorder and all
there is are licking sounds) confused

About 4 weeks later as I sat quietly at work one day I get a text...
"Dude, meet me for a drink, I'm in town tonight only..."

I rode down. We had beers. The hook was tested:

"Dude, meet me along the way and we can trailer to Torrey"
"Dude, I don't know if I can take that much time"

"Dude, you NEED to come with me..."


We agreed, that I would indeed accompany and that[/i] we'd meet in Nashville on our way to the I70 corridor.

I said, "I wonder if we can meet at Shannon's (A.K.A. ShannieMae) house? Wouldn't that be something if [i]she
wanted to go too?"

"No, that'd be @$%@$@% EPIC...! We better lean on her about this at BRR."

Nonetheless, we leaned, it worked and on Saturday May 15th the Clampetts loaded up for Torrey.

Uncle Jed surveyed the "rig" the rainy Sunday morning we took off for parts west:


Next stop: I70...

It's a Ford, so I'm guessing that at some point you had to abandon the vehicle and ride your bikes the rest of the way? Sorry for the spoiler. grin
