The second annual Havasu Suzuki V-Strom Rally is April 6th and 7th. I went last year and had a ball, so I pack up to attend again.
Lake Havasu is in Arizona, but I'm in Utah so I gear up for a cold ride.
Huntington Canyon, Utah
Near Ferron Utah I see these interesting objects.
I pull into the yard, I'm concerned that the owner might not want trespassers, so I tread lightly. Then I notice a pickup truck coming my way, with a jeep close behind.
It is the owner, Vaughn Reid and his friend. I ask for permission to photo his creations and he very kindly gives me the go-ahead. He tells me they are going to lunch, and if I'm there when they return he will give me a tour of his place
Regrettably, it is 2:30 pm and I have a room reserved 376 miles away in Las Vegas that is already paid for. If I could have changed that I would have hung around and talked to both of them.
Vaughn is 76 years old, and the creator of these works. I hope to stop in another day and visit with him and hear what I'm certain is an interesting story.
The first part of the Alien adventure...
So off I go, my next stop is Koosharem.
I really don't want to be riding after dark so I'm in a hurry, something I had promised myself I would not do during this trip. But....that's life, so I grab a quick lunch here and meet more friendly locals.
I make it to Vegas about 9:00 pm
