A couple more ..

Ya woulda thought he would have waited until I got my pants up before snapping the pic... eek grin



Tom

We finished the day out with a 60 mile ride to Coos Bay to pick up a U-haul truck for the 1100 miles back to my truck.
This pic is a fair representation of how I was feeling at this point.. grin




Gotta have a little nap while Kenny drives.


KENNY !!!!! tongue eek



Never leave the bike sitting by itself in the sand while taking pics...



Crashing on the silt leaves you looking like this....



We leapfrogged this storm all the way back.







Dirt bike riding on the tarmac sucks. The last 60 miles from Price UT back to Greenriver.




Finally loaded and ready to head east.

Finally cuddled up with a box of tissues and read the whole thing.

Fookin' AWESOME!! Carpe'd the livin shiite out of the diem.

Thanks so much for sending me the texts and pics along the way.
It was really, really tough being on the sidelines for this trip.

I'll be up for carrying your bags somewhere next year.

Almost forgot. Here is a pic for the little known fact discovered on a vacation category. As we were driving back toward Utah, we came across this sign.


The news of the only civilian casualties of WW2 within the continental U.S. was suppressed at the time, and the knowledge still isn't widespread.
