Default Read 'em and weep part II Mofos!

I'm making my way back to the cool breezes of San Diego. Today my journey took me from Santa Fe, NM to Show Low, AZ. I made a detour through the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert area of AZ.

So far, I've clocked just over 2000 miles on this trip. How many Seattle miles is that?

"How many Seattle miles is that? "

I think about 10 grand, give or take a few.

Did you guys just hear what sounded-like a distant scream of anguish? I know I heard something............

I thought I heard a keyboard being smashed, but it must be my imagination.

Well, lucky Buz. Great planning riding across So Arizona this time of year. At least he won't need his electric vest for once. A Gatorade I.V. might be indicated, though.

I left Show Low this morning and rode to Yuma. Show Low to Globe was fantastic. I got to Yuma at 11 am and it was 112. I check into a hotel and will complete my trip in the morning.

200 miles tomorrow and my total trip will be about 2600.

Too freakin' hot to make it home today!

Here's a tip from long time desert riders: Slather yourself with mayonnaise first thing in the morning before getting dressed. Don't skip the scalp, and make sure you get plenty in your ear canals. Once you're out in the heat, the breeze generated by everyone hauling ass away from you will keep you cool as a cucumber.

Speaking of cucumbers, here's what you do with one of those when heading out on a long trip: **** ** ** **** ***!

Hmmmmm. That's not a bad idea. Certainly it's more creative than my old method of carrying a water bottle and dousing my knees periodically as I motored across Nevada on my Shovelhead at a mere 106.

Hey, lay off the young/old, steroid-taking/fat, prophetic/creepy, Michael Douglas wannabe. I miss him.




Nah, I really don't.
