Had a great weekend at the Big Bear BMW Rally. Thanks very much to the owners clubs of San Diego and Orange County for jointly putting this great party on. And to all the vendors and companies who donated food, raffle prizes, etc. And to my great friends for providing some entertainment. !!

We mostly hung around and were social, but we did go for a ride Saturday. 2 bikes dropped, one water crossing, and some nasty winds coming through the desert. Awesome!

No one ever told me mountain biking was dangerous. But it seems that sometimes you endo and go flying over the bars. It’s awesome. And hey, I think bandages are a tax write-off. 🙂

It’s been a lot of work but my pictures from my trip are all posted. My favorite galleries are Colorado and New Mexico. I just can’t believe the skies in New Mexico – you have to check out those shots. It really is the land of enchantment!

Happy trails,

I’ve got pictures up on my gallery from California, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and the West Fest Rally. I’m still working on the rest but hope to have them done soon.

In the meantime, check them out…

Yes, I’m back from vacation. I know I am behind on my blogging. I can’t believe last time I wrote I was in Colorado. From Gunnison I rode down through Creede, Pagosa Springs, into New Mexico through Chama, Abiquiu, Grants, and down to Silver City. I followed the continental divide but I took mostly paved roads since I had done the GDMBR last year. It was a beautiful ride even without the dirt.

Caught up with Brandon in Silver City, went on a ride, got a little bit lazy. I left last Sunday night and rode through the night, fighting fatigue, and arrived here Monday morning.

I have a lot of pictures to edit and post.
