 Long time since I have been on here. This last year has been a challenge medically. I had 2 surgeries, Vicki had a Stroke. Other than that it has been a good year.
 I went on a tour to 2 different ghost towns in New Mexico. Very interesting and lots of history there and in this area.






These were taken in Shakespear.






Above was taken in Steins, Pronounced Steens.


Finally made it to Tucson to go on a ride with the Scooter club.

 The scooter ride is over but life goes on and I have been busy. Vicki bought a new king bed for the spare bedroom at Cheryl's, I agreed to build a bed frame with storage. It has turned out to be a challenge trying to build it outside. Weather has not been very cooperative. I do have close to one half done minus the drawers. Drawers will be the last thing I build.
 Also had a Drs. appointment yesterday. He said I had Bursitis in the hip. may be more than that but it is a starting point to getting it fixed. Gave me a shot in the hip so now wait and see if it helps.
 Other chores just keep on backing up, I need to clone myself. Well guess I need to go do something. Will write more later when I can tell if the shot is helping my hip or not.

Home in Willcox. AZ as of yesterday afternoon. My trip was full of great scenery, mixed weather, sunshine, rain, sleet and hail. Trip started on Aug 3rd and ended on Aug 18th. for a total of 16 days. I rode a total of 3685 miles, burned 62.47 gallons of gas for an average of 54.19 mpg.
I visited with many old friends and family, met some new friends and had a great time.
Highlight of my trip was seeing Old Faithful blow.
Next to last day I did a side trip to the Canyon De Chelly, definitely a must see if in the area.


















 Time to start thinking about my next adventure.

One more day on the road and I will be home. I am in Springerville, AZ tonight. My trip has been one fun filled adventure. I will do an update after I get home with more details on the trip.
My starting mileage when I left Willcox Aug 3rd.

Trip to Missoula was actually 1745.5 Miles, The scooter drank 30.39 gallons of gas for an average of 57.4 mpg.
I thought I had posted earlier and discovered I missed some miles when adding them up. So this is much better than my first calculation.


Day#5
Today's ride took me from Jackson, WY through Teton National Park and then through Yellowstone National Park with a destination of Livingston, MT. I was disappointed with no rain, in fact at times it was raining so hard I couldn't see 200 feet. When the sun came out it was beautiful. I stopped along with at least 10 million other people to watch Old Faithful blow. (OK that many people may be an exaggeration)
I arrived in Livingston at the KOA campground a little after 5:00, checked into my cabin, as I was un loading the scooter for the night there was a knock on the door. It was a friend who worked for Hickory Farms when I worked there. After a bite to eat went up to there trailer and had a great visit. The are the cooks in the campground so I had breakfast before I headed on to Missoula the next morning.













Day #4
Ride today was from Vernal, Utah to Jackson, Wyoming. It seems I am getting rain every day and today was no exception. Flaming Gorge reservoir and dam was very interesting. Had a good ride today with lots of nice scenery that I could see when the rain allowed.
