We were NOT out of the hills yet!

Shelters, where we typically prepare our meals

Great name for a restaurant

  1. The guys with the big bucks ride Co-Motion , I would ride one if I could afford it. Then I would have to worry about someone stealing it.We had a guy on the southern tier in 2010 had his bike stolen in Arizona. So don’t forget to lock-um up guys.

    • Fred, I just passed along your warning about having a bike stolen. We try to lock up the bikes, but sometimes we are probably more trusting than we should be.
