We had a power outage in the rv park on Sunday night. Power was out for only about 45 minutes, but the effects lasted until about 8 last night. The power spike zapped the wireless internet router and my little world was disrupted.

I had the shakes, saw pink laptops - I was having withdrawals.

You, dear readers, didn't even notice, did you?

Life continued at the park. To stay busy I played pool with the boys, went for a hike and ate a lot of snacks.

Everything except clean house. I have only about 88 square feet of usable living space but I still abhor cleaning it. On the other hand, I love clean sheets, but I hate making this bed. I have to lay across the mattress while I'm tucking in sheet corners. They always come untucked as I slide off of the bed.

Planning for Spud Run '09 is well underway. Steve came up with three viable options for our ride. One includes Yellowstone and Beartooth Pass, another includes a ride on The Road to the Sun in Glacier Park. It's hard to find 2,000 miles of motorcycle worthy road in Idaho. Most of our miles will be within the state boundaries. I've heard some say that Hiway 21 over Lolo Pass is the most beautiful ride in the country, I'll find out come the last week of July. Most motorcycle riders say the last road they were on is the most beautiful road they've ridden.

I'm looking forward to bike swap day when all of us will take turns thrashing Rob's new BMW through the curves. His brand spanking new 2008 R1200RT gets delivered soon (at the cost of a small house), it's sharp looking bike. Be careful in those first two-tenths of a mile Rob.

We're off to Gila Bend today I think. Our weekly rides are really just lunch runs - ride 100 miles, eat, turn around and head home.

Have a GR8 day!!

Does Idaho actually have 200 miles of paved highway? Been there many times, lived there a while back, and seemed as if all paved roads ended with a sign and gravel.

Rob says, thrash it all you want, it's insured for the amount of a small house. Oh, and I'll be on your bike doing the same. Do those saddle bags touch the ground in corners? I'll find out. Forrest get out your painting stuff, we'll be in need of some touch up.

Couple thoughts:
Sandpoint to Plains on hwy 200 is very good, not much traffic. Then follow 28 up toward Whitefish. With required stop at Hotsprings.
Hwy 287 from Wolf Point to Choteau is also excellent. Hard to stay on the pavement as the views are so good.
Still a spud run as they do grow S. Tuberosum in Montana.

Ahhhhh!!!! Pink Laptops!

That would have FREAKED me out!!!!

BTW, I vote for 'going to the sun road', only because I've never been there, and I've heard it's awesome!
