back from my long ride...

Well, I took my long ride. I had to cut it short by one day and 500 miles because of a fire at the Grand Canyon and high winds, but I'll get into that in my blog.

I've got Day 1 of the trip blogged up and here's the link...

In short, it was a great ride the first two days. The second two - well, lets just say that the desert southwest was more boring than I remembered. And fighting 30mph headwinds with gusts above 50mph isn't very fun. And its bad for fuel economy.

Sounds to me like you need a Stromtrooper blog instead of that junky one you have now
