When we left Salina, we got all spread out through the Utah Canyonlands, lots of up and down and short climbs.
Pat and I stopped at a viewpoint to wait for the 3 cars that we knew were behind us. When nobody came along, we talked to a trucker on the CB and he said there was an old car stopped back about 20 miles that lost a wheel. Thank heavens for cell phones, we were just barely able to raise Judy G on the cell and found that it was just a flat tire. Total lost time was only about a half an hour. Course the first spare that John put on was also leaking, so John put on his second spare, (Murphy’s law: if it is possible to change a tire twice, you will have to change a tire twice).
Seems like we have been gone for weeks. Anyway, here are a few pictures of our day, it was a little damp for a while, (washed the bug juice off the radiator) and it was a little steep for awhile (second gear up to Vail Pass for everybody but Will, I think we are going to study his engine when we get back) but boy did we fly down the other side to Frisco, CO.
Little parking lot maintenance required, Jack’s points keep closing up, so we keep resetting them.
In case you are wondering, the advance scouting party has dispersed, they are out there in the heartland somewhere visiting friends and family, we will see them in a couple days in Illinois.
PS: In the rain picture, if you look real close you can see Jack and Don with no side curtains. *grin* (Click any picture to see a larger version)
