Thank you, yet another terrific set of photos.

I'm glad folks like them and I'll endeavor to take a variety of shots to try and get something for everyone.

I have just about squeezed all the visual essence from this location so i need to get the Moto Hobo gypsy train rolling east!

This stolen picture is dedicated to the A-Holes who insist on starting their noisy generators at 6 am or throughout the day.

I am surprised you aren't in a park that prohibits gensets before 7 or 8. Not that I would do it, but I guess you *could* go to the local hobby store and get some corks and on a nightly stroll around the park shove a cork up the exhaust of the worst offender's gen exhaust. As they start them remotely it may take a good long while before they think of a plugged exhaust,if ever. ;) In place of a cork, coring a potato on the exhaust pipe will work well also.

I prefer to stay out in the desert on free government land but it's nice to stay in the parks and have a bathroom, clean water, possibly hot showers (US$1 extra here), and even electricity.

You also meet some interesting ’neighbors’.

The downside is the occasional annoying noise.

Most parks here have a noise ordinance from 10 pm to 6 am. 8 to 8 would be better.

I was tempted to aim my headlights at one last night and hit him with my high beams but pretended I was an adult.

And how do I get all these friggin ducks to shut up???? It isn't 6 yet and they seem to be having an orgy on the lake this morning!!!

Have them over for a meal or two
Better yet, start feeding them in the campsite of the generator tenant in the EARLY morning

How are all y’all holding up after four days without new content?

I got evicted from Squaw Lake yesterday after someone narced on the host for letting some people stay longer than the designated 14 day limit.

They had said I could stay until my replacement JetBoil propane stove arrived (old one caught on fire) on Friday or Saturday but they booted me.

Rather than move 5 miles to some free campiing i decided to just go to where I was heading - Organ Pipe Cactus National Park.

It worked out for the best as it was 74F here today and I finally got to wear my riding safety attire again after a nice nap in the sun.

This will have to hold you over until I get a better cell signal.

Who says you can’t go off-roading on a Rocket?

Oh the lengths I go to to bring you fine folks new and interesting visual stimuli!!

Even putting my bike & toes in harms way to get some footage yesterday.

Intro clip:


Just look at how filthy my poor Rocket got! It cost me a buck fiddy to wash it.

21 mile loop with mostly dirt and rocks...


A few flooding issue areas are paved:

WTF - CT’s can’t turn on pavement so how the heck did I manage to survive cornering on gravel?
