In case anyone is interested
« on: August 11, 2015, 09:19:52 PM »
I'm riding up to Gunnison tomorrow. I'll be there terrorizing the local flora and fauna until Sunday. Heading back to the heat on Monday.

Post up or IM if anyone is interested in meeting up in the next few days.

Enjoy the scenery and cooler weather.

Wed night / Thurs AM (2am Mountain to be specific) is listed as the height for the many-days-long Perseid Meteor shower - keep an eye to the sky.

10pm's fast approaching. A neighbor and I are headed up to Rocky Mtn Nat Park to (hopefully - there are some clouds) see some meteor showers...

 Well Jim caught it. I got up Thursday morning and realized my license plate was gone. [emoji31]

Talk about a left turn. And it's not fixable. At least not here.

For whatever reason, I decided to truck the bike up here for this trip. First time I've done that in years. I'm glad I did now.

Some a-hole once nicked the rear plate for my car and switched it out for an expired one. I didn't notice until a cop pulled me over. I was so pissed off that he just let me go. I have no idea how he spotted the different plates. He was passing me going the other way and pulled a u-y to light me up.

Nice pix!

You here visiting family or friends?  I _azzumed_ you were solo biking about the Gunnison arena.
