I can come up with my own. Trust me, I apparently need no help in

Only if you use a Husqvarna sewing machine like mine.

Uh, oh. My little one started lobbying to go to
Idaho the instant I put it on the calendar. He's not
ready today but the rate of his improvement is awe
I'm not telling him.

Go fast. Take chances.

Cool, that's exactly what I needed.

Go fast. Take chances.

You're Gall-darned right! I'm pissed you or Tami didn't get your
cameras out for that, and I regret that you didn't!!!
Sorry I'm late to the party, and sorry for not being around much.
That ADVrider is addictive, with all it's fancy pictures, video &
such. Going through this thread made me realize I haven't stopped in,
or e-mailed any of you in a long time. I thought it might have to do
with there being no SF's to plan/talk about, but by God...it looks
like there's one, now! Looks like PrairieRider has introduced
herself, so I'm off the hook for being Jeff's girlfriend, and I don't
believe for a second Tami has slowed down :) The SV is riding nicely,
Tami, BTW (doesn't do so bad off-road, too!) I acquired an old XR400
as my DS bike, but still have the KDX, KW! (albeit a bent subframe, a-
la Donner Pass). Count me in for next year as well, and for longer
than when Jeff & I went in '06. I hope to have my own rig and explore
more than a few days, both trail & DS. Y'know, I still have dreams of
coming down that sidehill with the bombers flying overhead, and the
butterflys alighting from the rocks in front of my tire as I bounced
down the trail...simply beautiful...I wanna go back to Baum, and don't
care what dates you set, I'll take it off
