Looking at routes I see I can check two places off my bucket list; Winslow Az (becuase of the Eagles song, Take it Easy), and the Devil's highway (route 191) in Az
I was going to take my nomad, but the morning as I go out to leave I find a glitch. A new farkle I had recently installed on the nomad needs some adjustments....I have to choose, work on the nomad, and leave in a while, or move my gear to the strom and leave now. Leaving now sounds good to me so I unload the kaw and load up the strom. I'm on my way in minutes.
A theme that will keep repeating itself the first two days of this ride is; "that's a road that I've always wanted to ride..."
As I pass Helper, Ut, I notice a road that I've always wondered what was down it, and I find this. I'm glad I followed it.
Back on the main road, I enter Price and have to re-route around the St. Patricks day parade. I stop and watch part of the parade. These young parents were part of the parade, you just have to love small town celebrations!
Back on SR 6 I see another road I've always wanted to ride....what the heck, I have time. Well, I did have time, but I got sidetracked on yet another road a few miles up the canyon, so Nine Mile Canyon will have to wait till another day.
The day before I left for this ride Strom buddy, Tom, tells me about a road in this area that I didn't even know existed....what the heck I have time...
So I've seen two new towns today, already this is a great ride. Next stop is Green River, Ut. I need to get a pic of the Strom in front of the Golden Ratio.
