    Glacier National Park ride... :{)

    I will be headed to GNP this 3-day weekend. If you are in the area or care to come on over and ride a day or two you are most certainly welcome to! I will be in and out of cell service but i will be checking in as i can to see if anyone is in the area and would like to meet up for a visit or to ride a while. Otherwise, enjoy your weekend!! :{)

    I hope the road construction is done. When I was there a month ago, Going to the Sun Road was closed but I read it opened June 23. Enjoy your visit to the park!

    well Dale... you know i would tempt you with PIE, however i know you have your heart set on the BDR ride and although that will not be as cool as GNP it will still be spectacular i'm sure! (next time).

    Daughter number three, who's been out of work since March, was offered a good job today. Now I can go back to saving up for a trip and maybe a Himalayan. Thinking of doing a two day/one night test run to section two of the MADBR.

    I went to Glacier National Park on my first Honda a '71 CB 500. 45 years ago -1974
    Glacier National Park ride...      :{)-img072-jpg

    I ran out of gas twice on that trip, both times I had to go to reserve earlier than normal, I think because of strong winds cutting my mpg. The first time in Nebraska fortuitously right in front of a farm house where I was able to get enough gas to make it to the next town. The second time in Canada, ended up having to push the bike about a mile into town.

    My Dad was a sheet metal worker and made me this holder for a Styrofoam ice chest, the other side I had a cheap canvas bag from K-Mart.

    I'm not smart enough for a smart phone, so all I have is a dumb phone.
    GPS? Why would I want one of them? You can't get lost, there's no fun in that.
