Lincoln, 106 degree, Nebraska for the night.

Bob - Nigel is going to be ready to PLAY.

Believe me, I'm not sad that I'm riding in an air conditioned car. Not one bit.

I am sure Nigel isn't sad about it either! I hope both of you have a great time! I wish I could be going to the UN too!

I've made it as far as Nederland, CO. Oh wait, that's where I live. I plan to get on the road tomorrow afternoon and be in Salida by early evening.

This should be a good one. It's always fun to connect faces with online personalities.

Grand Mesa scenic byway exit 49 off of I-70 for anyone coming in from the west, fun road!! clap Sorry no pics.

Well, I'm actually further away, but not by much. The theme for the day was "keeping cool", and I accomplished it. Left Denver early and had a nice stop in Golden, CO and then over Berthoud Pass and then the Trail Ridge Road in RMNP. Yes, it was busy, but it was cool.

Added on CR-27 from US 34 to CO14 and then up the Poudre Canyon to Cameron Pass and back. Passed through a lot of the Poudre Canyon fire:



The ash and soot from the fire has been washed into the river you can't see an inch into the water:



On to Salida tomorrow.

When you hit the first deep puddle you see at 75, the passenger front tire likes to stop rapidly and the driver front tire sort of keeps going. What a rush! Slight lane change, hit brakes, SLOW DOWN. Front wheel drive is interesting. See ya in Salida. Need a car wash.


Ditto.

Left home in Danville this morning, in Eureka, NV. tonight. Green River, UT tomorrow night, and Salida Tuesday.

Got to the Gateway Inn around 8:30 pm after fighting 110 degrees all day. Tomorrow time for some mountain riding in hopefully cooler temps.
