A Leisurely Pace III

On our way to Oatman.
This whole trip I can't get the Route 66 song out of my head...it could be worse, I could be riding on the Highway to Hell, but somehow I know I wouldn't be climbing a Stairway to Heaven...

 Where we ate lunch. I don't mind waiting over an hour for food as long as it's good food; I won't be eating here again.



 Vette convention of some sort.

 Departing Oatman, going back to the Havasu State Park for the second Rally dinner.
 Vegashotwheeler brews his own booze. This is his "Apple Pie".
Since I'm not old enough to drink, he brought a Non-alcoholic version of  his Apple Pie for me.

 If I hung around either of these women for any length of time I would weigh a TON. They are both excellent chefs!

Sunday I'm on my way home. It was fun seeing old friends and making new ones at the Havasu Rally. About 1800 miles total.

It's always nice to read about a road trip. I like your short review of the restaurant "I don't mind waiting over an hour for food as long as it's good food; I won't be eating here again." I think that says it all.

Freebird - The Mother Road (RT 66) is a great way to go back in time. I hope to ride it end to end someday.

Roger - I came home 4lbs heavier....but it was well worth it!

Lori - The Big Kahuna looks good whatever order you see it in.... Thanks for stopping in!

Erik - I really prefer saying positive things, but the more I thought about our experience there I felt like I had to say something.
Thanks for reading my blog.
