    4 years ago today...March 29, 2015

    Hoot, Montezuma, Borneo, and Weasel finished our 10 Day Moab Adventure with 30 or so other folks and with a smile but some sadness, we headed back to Indiana and Ohio

    My tour in the Air Force lasted 4 years and seemed forever, and here we are 4 years out from the first {and my last, so far} Moab Adventure, and it seems like just yesterday...we parted the KOA Grounds south of Moab City and it was sunny and warm, we ended up back at Borneo's Ranch in NE Indiana to Spitting Snow and Cold....

    Thanks for the Memories Gang...and I plan on at least one more trip out there, even though I am now an ancient 70 years on this planet

    Here are some "Blasts from the Past" anybody have other photos from that trip to share?

    Looks like a blast and I'd love to do it myself however it is really really far from here to there....but maybe someday.

    BTW Hoot Gibson, I totally disagree with your "ancient" comment....given that I'll be 65 myself in the fall I would classify you as simply....."a little older"! Cheers!

    Hoot, you are only as old as you think you are. I turned 70 in December and I plan on riding for years.....just a lot slower and less aggressively in deference to my aging body. In my mind I'm still 30! A slightly drunk 30, which accounts for all the senior moments.

    your right Rocky, i'm 68 and still getting into it. i was in the insurance office yesterday and an "older" woman came in and sat down beside me and started a conversation. it was obvious she had a few years on me and she was excited as all get out to get her 1200 Harley on the road again. in fact, we are making a trip to the big city today so the wife ( can't mention an age here ) can trade her scooter in on a Honda grom so she can do more off road. it's good to be, mmmmm young!
