More Awesomeness

August 31, 2012

Having all sorts of internet problems tonight…. Today was another day hard to beat. After a good breakfast, we were off on another road trip. Back across the Wyoming state line to Newcastle then north to our first stop – Devils Tower. Pretty unbelievable sight, just jutting up from the rolling hills. We rode as […]

There just aren’t enough adjectives to describe our day. Our travels carried us less than 150 miles but we spent ALL day doing it! We left Hill City and headed for Custer State Park. This is the home to Needles Highway. I’m sure lot’s of you are familiar with that little stretch of road. The […]

Majestic Plains

August 29, 2012

Left Colorado this morning with the temps in the mid 40’s. No problem, we’re prepared. You know, layers and layers PLUS heated gear! So we were not cold as we departed. Too bad we didn’t need it. Cause it wasn’t long before we started coming out of clothes! Within 3 hours the temperature had doubled! […]

Yikes, yaks!!!

Ok, a little more about dinner last night. We had studied all day about where we were to dine. Graham’s Grill. Turned out it was a bit more upscale than we were expecting. And I’m sure we weren’t exactly the group that our server was expecting either. At the very least, I know she was […]

Walk a Mile in My Shoes

August 27, 2012

Today we spent almost the entire day in historic Taos Plaza and Bent Street. After a great breakfast at the Taos Diner, we parked and started walking. T-shirts, magnets, leather, jewelry….we saw it all and bought most of it! Even spent time in the Kit Carson House and Museum. We tried to see Taos Puebla […]

Out and about in Taos

August 26, 2012

So I’ve been chastised about my boring blog…. Let’s see if I can’t dress it up some. Sure wouldn’t want anyone to get bored – Mom! 😏 It’s really nice staying in the same place more than one night. Every morning is not a mad rush to pack up and load the bikes. We get […]

Into Taos

August 25, 2012

What a wonderful day! Yes, you’ll probably hear that a lot over the next couple of weeks. We all went to bed so early last night that everyone was moving around pretty early this morning. As Mary carried her bag to the bike, “It’s not even daylight yet!” I’m not really sure when she last […]

Who could have known

August 24, 2012

After traveling Oklahoma’s Wildlife Trail across the southern part of the state, there just wasn’t alot to see. We rode through the town where Freckles Brown was born, and the hometown of Miss Oklahoma 1998. Oh yeah, and some town on US287 that claimed Lane Frost as their famous “son” (actually, we were in Texas […]

On the road again

August 23, 2012

A very short day…but we got on the road! Left Texarkana with me, Mary, Julie and Phil around 4:30 this afternoon. The whole purpose was to get down the road far enough so that our Friday ride would be a little easier. And that we did…about 165 miles later…Durant, OK for the night. After a […]

It’s almost here…

August 21, 2012

Yes, we are gearing up for another “BIG TRIP”.  We weren’t certain that it would actually happen given everything going on but it looks like a “go” now.  So, we will spend the next couple of days prepping for a Thursday afternoon departure. The plan this year is to head west to Taos where we […]
