Rescue mission

My plans took a turn this past week, but it’s all good.
I got a call from Sherry that she was broke down in eastern Arizona while on an Ironbutt practice ride. I had been staying with old Air Force friends in El Paso so I headed north to help out my former host.( last June Sherry hosted me as I passed through SoCal) We got her bike towed to her mechanic outside of Laughlin Nv. where they fixed the bike (it was bad gas) and welded on a trailer hitch to “Belle”

On the way back to Sherry’s  house we met up with Shawn and Adele from shawncowles.com as they made their way from Key West to Ushuaia Argentina on DRZ 400’s. All packed up with Mosko Moto luggage. It’s great to see travelers doing what they love!

Yesterday we loaded up her pup Blondie for a day ride through the mountains and desert. It turned out to be a 200+ mile day because of washed out roads up in Idlewild. We made our way through the crowds in Joshua Tree NM for a late lunch in 29 Palms and a very windy ride back down the hill to Sherry’s house in Banning.

It’s very freeing to change plans on the fly. Something I’ve had trouble with in the past being in logistics where you had to be at a certain place and a set time. Meeting up with friends and making new ones is a great thing if you can give up a bit of control sometimes and just let it happen ❤️

It's all about going for a ride with friends on the Yamaha Super Tenere, on road or off in the Pacific Northwest
