First, I must apoligize for not posting to the blog in more than a week. Internet service is poor at best in many of the places where I had time for an update. Won’t happen again, I hope.



Phoenix, AZ – “Biker Chick” Patty came out and rode with me for a few days to see the Painted Desert, Petrified Forest, Canyon de Chelly, Monument Valley and Sedona. In addition to the incredible sights and scenes, we were able to give Patty firsthand experience riding through rain, high winds, a sand storm, and a threat of pestilence from a truck load of tourists. Fortunately, we did not encounter locusts or great fires on Patty’s leg of the Cruise.
