sitting in Red Lodge, Montana tonight, thunderstorms and my first ever performance award dampened my spirits. Bear Tooth and Chief Joseph should lift them tomorrow.....should be home Tuesday, me thinks. Pics on the BMWST FaceBook page. It was great to see old friends and meet many new friends. This is a fabulous community! Thanks Randy and Deb (and all others involved) for a great week.

Took the Million Dollar Highway to Durango, stopped at Four Corners and went through Monument Valley to Flagstaff for the night. Came straight home and got home to two happy dogs, two happy cats, and one angry bird, but after a little peanut butter, all was forgiven. grin

Endobob and Tank, thank you again for all your help (and moral support) on Tuesday. It was not fun for either of you, bless you for being there for us.

Thanks to Randy and all who worked to make this years Un happen, and to everyone that was there!

Home about 11:15pm last night

Finished the last ~950 miles yesterday

Also made it home about 11:30pm last night.

Friday about 500 miles to Rock Springs, WY. HAD to go on CO92 from Blue Mesa Dam to Crawford and was rewarded with seeing an eagle dissecting his breakfast by the side of the road and a black bear crossing in front of me. More detours at Colorado NM, Dinosaur NM and Flaming Gorge NRA. Being a little nuts, I decided to include Teton and Yellowstone NP yesterday morning on my 900 mile day so that cost me quite a bit of time.

All in all was able to stick to 2 lane roads for 1000 of my +/-1400 miles and find a much more interesting route home from Colorado then my previous experiences.

Thanks to Randy et al for all the work involved.

Pictures and ride tale to follow.

Got home last night about 8:30, hot in Kansas, but cooled off for the trip from Kansas City home. Had a great time, really great to see everyone and make some new friends!

Looking forward to next year!

Thank you Randy and team for a great UN!
