When things get hot…

When things get hot...When things get hot- Jan and I each have a bandanna that we soak in ice cold water out of our ice chest and tie it around our neck- It sure helps cool things down when the sun is beating down on you! We decided the only humane thing would be to get bandanna’s for our riding buddies as well…

Day 30 Road Trip- June 18, 2008

Day 30 Road Trip- June 18, 2008We had some major excitement today- apparently T.W. decided she wanted to see the sights up close and personal so she threw herself off the motorcycle while we were cruising at “an excessively high rate of speed”! We had to pull over and I trekked on down the mountain pass to pick her up! Crazy girl! We think she was suffering from altitude sickness and wasn’t in her right mind!!

We had a gorgeous ride today through the mountains between Steamboat Springs and Denver.

Day 30 Road Trip- June 18, 2008

“Woohoo…. We’re in Kansas!” (I scream sarcastically) We are now in Colby (and no it’s not the cheese). We had an awesome steak dinner and we’re gonna spend the night. According to the hotel clerk- there was a tornado about an hour east of here. (Which would explain the high winds the last 40 miles of the ride) I’m glad we didn’t decide to try and go further.

Kansas Landscape- Wow- if it weren’t for the curvature of the earth, I would swear I could see the St. Louis Arch from here…

Day 5 Road Trip- May 24, 2008

Meet T.W. (traveling winger) She is our other traveling companion. This is her first trip on the motorcycle- and to be honest. She is doing great. She doesn’t care about the weather at all.

5-1New Mexico landscape. The wind is a bit better today. Headwinds, which is bad for MPG, but much easier than the cross winds we’ve been dealing with the past 2 days.

5-2Clines Corners, NM. I have no idea what the temperatures where here- but I just about froze my butt off. When Jan said she was cold- I knew it had to be cold for sure. She is so hot natured that she runs around in t-shirts when I have sweatshirts on. The store clerk told us that yesterdays high was 37 degrees with rain. We have been real lucky and haven’t hit any rain yet. But we know the coast will provide more precipitation than we really want.


Here we are in Old Town Albuquerque. We both wanted Mexican food, as well as margaritas again today.

Here’s my lunch, I ordered a Chimichanga, but this wasn’t fried, so I’m not sure what it was. Whatever it was, it was sure good…. and hot!

This was the first time Jan had ever seen me eating food that was too hot for me. I only got about half of my lunch eaten before my lips were totally numb! I think she actually enjoyed seeing me sweat! haha But…. I got to drink about half of her margarita- It was too strong for her.


There is a real pretty church in Old Town- and this fellow was spending his afternoon drawing it.


San Felipe de Neri Church in Old Town. When we walked in the church you could hear the most beautiful music playing up at the alter.
