In the eternal words of Elwood, "It's a 106 miles to Chicago. We got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses. Hit it."


Leaving Tues at 5 pm for Gunnison via Monument Valley and Paonia. Bikes all good on fluids, air and TB sync. Bags are already packed and routes programmed into the GPS. Smelly Ceegars are all ready to go, the Mp3 player has 400 songs in it and Meghan is giddy as a school girl. Tomorrow is going to be a long day waiting for her to get off of work before we can leave.

Hey all you folks about to hit the road ... have a great time in Gunnison and ride safely! I can't make the trip myself, but you all have a great get-together and post some pics and ride tales when you get back ...

We're not leaving until friday afternoon, so we are going to be doing some serious riding to make it to Gunnison on Sunday. It's going to be a long week. We are really looking forward to meeting everyone. We hope to be checked into the Ramada by early Sunday afternoon, and then on to the KOA.

Alright, I'm leaving work in about 3 minutes and then I'm heading home to pack up and go to sleep. Departure is now at T minus 16 hours, 46 minutes. Everyone, please drive safe...I don't want the first thing getting around is how so-and-so fell asleep and wrecked their beautiful RT. Thanks, now I'll sleep better at night. Take care and I'll see ya in a few days!

I forced OldRider to go through Soda Springs, ID, so I could check on a namesake there. He was a doctor and treated one of the injured "Wild Bunch" while in hiding, at the turn of the century. It also was our favorite movie in H.S., and we adopted the name then too. Good call OldBunchedUp. smile.gif

The family and I will be heading out of St. Louis on Friday evening, chasing the sunset down the slab (I-70). We are looking forward to meeting you all in Gunnison. I noticed that my daughter had bought some pepper spray. When I asked if it was to drive off bears, she said no. It was for the Hells Angels or Wurty, whichever came first. Have a good ride guys.
