Life in the Big City - Vol. 6.1 update


So remember the story last month of my neighbor the astronaut who launched an electric water heater through his roof?

Well, here's what's left. I have to say I'm surprised it's down already. When it caught fire a couple years ago, it stood there for at least six months before anyone touched it.

Day 3 - Mickelson Trail Trek






Home at last. That last segment from Denver to Phoenix gets tedious.

Here's a batch of photos from Sunday. Time to go wash the muck out of the Trek.

Day 2 - Mickelson Trail Trek






Here's some more pics from todays segment from Custer to Rochford. Among them, there's the same group picture in front of the Crazy Horse Memorial. The weather was perfect today again, though tomorrow they are forecasting scattered thunderstorms, but mostly in the afternoon. We're done by noon usually, so maybe we'll stay dry.

Day 1 - Mickelson Trail Trek





Here's a couple pics from todays ride, while I wait for the shower. A beautiful sunny day today, high of about 80. I actually beat Megan into Edgemont, though not by much. But Ed and Nyle were not that far behind.

Weather looks like tomorrow will be about the same as today, as we ride north thru Hill City and into Rochford for a few beers at the world famous Moonshine Gulch saloon.

Videobombing with Sal and Richard

This is for Mike P.

For the rest of you, it's Sal and Richard from the Howard Stern Show on Sirius-XM satellite radio, goofing on CNN cameras in front of Lehman Brothers on Monday.

And now for something completely different...


All has been quiet on Big Dorky for a couple weeks. Been busy trying to get ready for the trip to South Dakota to ride the Mickelson Trail Trek next weekend (Sept. 19-21).

We only have three more 6:30 AM starts, in October we move the start time back to 7:30 AM. I will be at the park this week for the trip to Five and Diner on the rez, someone else will have to lead on the 21st.

I hope to be able to post some pics from the road, if I can find access to the intertubes in Custer SD. I know our hotel doesn't have it, but perhaps a coffeshop in town might.

Here's a picture from last Sunday, Rogerio and Laurel at US Egg. I got nothin' else. See ya Sunday.
