Rough Riders

Mack & Joleen were kind enough to invite me ride with their club, the "Rough Riders". As the name suggests, they like to go where most people fear to tread. I must admit they have a unique way of checking out their skid plates while on the trail...

Wastebook

Senator Jeff Flake has released Wastebook: PORK√©mon Go, the latest chronicle of government waste in a series started by former Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn. The report covers 50 items and more than $5 billion in spending on outrageous government programs and frivolous projects. All of this waste is going on while our national debt is approaching 20 trillion dollars (that's $20,000,000,000,000 or ~$166,775 per taxpayer).

Visiting VIPs

Yesterday, while sitting on the couch contemplating solutions to our nation's problems, a brown truck pulled up behind the RV and a thin, skinny woman got out. She looked vaguely familiar but it wasn't until I saw Greg that I knew it was Merry. She immediately laid to rest my concern that she had gone bulimic and just to prove it, they invited me to join them for dinner. We had a great time at Shugrue's Restaurant overlooking the Colorado River and I got to hear the latest salacious gossip from the Arizonian RV Park (the only thing known to travel faster than the speed of light).

That's the London Bridge in the background

PS - my solution to the national debt crisis is to fine all politicians $10,000 every time they tell a lie. I figure the country will be out of debt in no time at all.

Hualapai Mountain Resort

One of my park neighbors showed me some photos of elk taken at the Hualapai Mountain Resort southeast of Kingman so I decided to drive over for lunch and take a look around. Sure enough, the elk were still there...



The snow was an added bonus...
