I Broke Down...

Post by echinus1988 » Sat Sep 01, 2018 2:01 am



No, my bike didn't break down, I did. I was ending a 2 week vacation with my son and was going to work two days and then go on my weekend. Problem was, those two days were my last two night shift days for three months!

I decided I would rather go camping and just continue on a day schedule and so I asked for and should get the additional two days off.

That means that I extended my vacation 4 more days. That also means that I am going to go camping for those 4 days. Haven't decided where yet but I am going camping!

Picture is just a ride my son and I took this summer. Along the South Platte River which is beautiful and has some fine campgrounds to enjoy.

Cool pic. Accidentally on that road with my jeep a few years back. Wasn't planned just hitting some back roads while out west on a trip. Really cool old hotel.

I agree that it's cool to look at. I wish they would rejuvenate it and keep it up. But it's still a fun ride and a great place for pictures. Well the whole road is pretty good for pictures.

I ride that area a lot and finally can find my way around pretty well. Lots of fun roads, now is the time to try the campgrounds.

Ride safe.
