Been gone for 3 weeks and THAT'S all you have to say for yourself??











You must be one whipped puppy!!





Glad you made it back, from watching the tracks left by you and Dusty and reading his sparse reports I am thinking it would take you a couple of solid day's work to get the travelouge put together.

Dave,

Glad to hear you are safe and sound and able to sleep in your own bed.

It was great being able to shake your hand again at another NASSIR event. This is getting to be a habit

See you at NASSIR5 !!!

~ John

You are one lucky man to have had Dusty for the tour of a lifetime guide.

You made good time, Grasshopper!!

Still holed up at the same spot where we last saw each other. The storm that rolled through here later that night, made the one in the morning seem pale by comparisson. A Park Ranger came by and told everyone to expect a severe thunder storm, packing 70mph winds and heavy rains, as it was headed right for us. Told us to use the bath house as a 'safety shelter'. Got wild and wooly for a while(1 1/2hrs) but after midnight, the high winds abated and the thunder/lightning and heavy rains continued on to 8:30am.

Things are muddy around camp, as you could imagine. Tent and tarp faired very well, although I added a few more tensioner lines to both, in preperation of another storm tonight(if one comes)

I'll be pulling out tomorrow and should be back in Beaverton in 2 days, to wash/clean up all the gear, in preperation for Ottawa and beyond.

Say hello to Bambi for me and remember to tell the guys at work that the trip and sights were "OKAY"

You got no hot springs round those parts to relax in?



As always, a real pleasure riding with you again and can't wait for our next 'adventure'!

Now ..... get all them chores done!

Sorry I was so short gang. Was invited to a friends for a little porch party, and just got back from that. Lots of good eats

And Doug,,,, you hit it right on!! It's going to take me more then a couple days to put this trip together. I saw sooooooo much.

Rudy ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Don't I know it!!!!!! I was given a lifetime gift that will stay with me forever .

I have many things to tend to here at home before I can get too involved with a report. And then trying to catch up with everything else that has been going on here. Whew!!! I haven't even seen the first post of the N-5 thread, and there's already 5 pages ,,,,,, so little time

Thanks for all the welcome back wishes

The things I liked,,,,I\'ve tried em twice!
