    Did you say PIZZA?... GOOD PIZZA?... I dream about Pizza and all I get is sand between my teeth!... I think we might do CO nstead of Wyoming and Montana... I hear of much wind in WY...
    How about a backpack type mesh bag on your chest for your cat... have seen many riders take their little dogs that way... or a covered basket on the tank? You can do it...

    If you are heading north to WY you need to check out Thermopolis and the natural mineral hot springs... the state run pool is free... you get 20 minutes per day.. there are pay places next door...my wife and i did it last OCt and drove from Yellowstone to Thermo just for the pools... it was worth it... there is an intersting collection of hunting trophies in the Holiday Inns steak house... the owner even has a "horned" walleye on the wall with a few rare Jackalopes...

    The Oasis of my Soul...

    Great info... thank you... I love good info... Ah! I can already feel that water!!!



    Near Needles, Utah that is

    Great campsite and always much to see and experience! Today we are going to a Festival! Just found out from a reader a couple minutes ago The Blue Hollow Festival near Monticello have to talk to Spirit about it!
    We have been here a couple days I think and doing not much great sunsets a cold snap some good wind filled with sand to clean my teeth just mellowing out and taking it all in.
    Spend one night on the same site with some friends, a good dinner, some good laughs I have to say that the company was great A little ride into Needles it has been all good.
    I am starting to read about others coming to this area I have the feeling we will meet more friends very soon It IS that time of the year
    Check it all out on the Blog
    Be well, always Ara & Spirit

    Blu Mtn Fastivel, Monticello, Utah

    A good time is always what you make of it. When we arrived to the Festival after a change of plan as usual, the organizers where really disturbed at the amount of the no shows within the vendors blaming it on fuel prices. $4.29 today by the way in Monticello. My friend Pete was also there and was leaving as we arrived as, this was not worth even coming too he said.
    We had a great time, we got lost a couple times trying to find the field, we got permission to go back to this old property we had found with no trespassing signs It was just a great day on that front. Missing Family on another front took an impact later on but Spirit and I together we are learning to deal with it Riding helps he does too you do too it is all good.
    Till next time
    Be well
    Ara & Spirit

    Amazing Global exposure for the Journey and Spirit!!!

    No misquotes written as it should be, a synopsis of 18 months on the road the why and the hows
    On Welcome to World of BMW
    Got a kick out of this one on Motor Cyclist right underneath an another article about my Hero Rossi! and our full page
    And then it is on to BMW Motorrad South Africa
     and Automotive.com Just in case you wanted a shorter version on the ongoing of the last 18 months!
    We arrived back in Moab yesterday, we will be busy running errands, regrouping a bit and then on back south Different World always suddenly from the silence to rubber rolling down the black top But that is alright with me as long as I know there is so much more of the vast empty spaces waiting for us
    Thank you for all your support and long live Spirit!, yes one of those mean Pits you know!!! (all the links are on the Blog)

    Be well Ara & Spirit

    A strong Potash connection! Utah

    A frayed clutch cable changed with a smile thanks to some past strong tutorials from Master BMW mechanics who knew that the knowledge of being quite self sufficient would come in handy, as it did. A couple tires changed by a Harley mechanic right along some stories of celebrities he had shared moments with. Another ride on Potash Rd, which with time and traffic has changed to a rougher one exposing itself with its flowers blooming and hues of red constantly changing throughout the moments The sudden attraction of the Potash and salt mine with its blue dyed waters establishing such a contrast with the landscape Spirit making its home wherever we stop and doing his own exploring meeting a man named Mike who himself has just rescued another abused dog, an image of Spirit 3 years ago This is just another day in our Life on the road. Never a dull moment, there is no boredom when one slows down and allows the events to take shape throughout ones senses. All in the Blog.
    Always be well Ara & Spirit

    Some great Camping, Utah
    Camping is always great in Utah specially when my favorite spot is unoccupied A bit short lived because of bad weather today, but we got a great taste of it. You can never go wrong camping in The Valley of the Gods.
    Full sun, sunsets, sunrise and just about full moon, it was a perfect time. The heat around this area is the only factor that worries me, specially with Spirit, even with always a full bowl of water in front of him and some shade, panting non stop. We definitely spend much more time throughout the year in cold weather versus hot.
    So we are back things will clear up and we can take off again!!!
    I have had quite a few readers ask me about our camping gear so there it is today, on the Blog.
    Enjoy and be well
    Ara & Spirit

    The Oasis of my Soul..



    The Natural Bridges, Utah

    We packed fairly early that day leaving my favorite spot where I am sure we will go back under better skies. Some glancing at the clouds, decided to go and checkout the Natural Bridges National Park. Nice ride up, the Park itself not crowded at all with a 9 miles loop and amazingly no red sandstone. I think the camera was confused now! A delight on the eyes, marvels carved in rocks, many trails to go on and much greenery. The winds picked up as time went on, a struggling ride back specially with it on the nose from Blanding back to Bluff just in time for some serious rain which lasted till a few minutes ago. Just got a message from a rider that was suppose to meet us here tonight he is in Monticello in a motel room it is snowing just a few miles north from here!
    Eventually we will complain, needlessly, that it is too hot some day, does not seem to be soon.
    All in the Blog as always. Be well Ara & Spirit

    So more camping at Monument Valley! Utah

    This was camping with photography in mind the dirt road loop also I have to say is always kind of challenging trying to always figure out a better line and explore the possibilities of the rigs handling! Nice also to meet many foreigners taking advantage of the Euro exchange and listen to their own perspective about traveling and visiting this Country. Only one complain same as mine the food situation! But look at where we are! Food Distributors dont even want to deliver their ingredients this far time and fuel costs! So keep on cooking!
    The heat in the air is being really felt this morning and the no-see-ums, I think same as gnats (?) are out in full force I thought we left them behind in Florida but wrong! I even tried dryer sheets to keep them away not much is working Colorado Mountains are sounding more and more appealing!!!
    Till next time enjoy the pictures maybe the writing too!
    Be well Ara & Spirit

    Is it winter again?

    33 degrees a few miles up the road, dark clouds and much rain yesterday but it looks like all will change tomorrow when we head out soon (I like to use that word! no time frame) to the Antelope Slot Canyon in Page, by Lake Powell. We are looking forward to it Spirit will stay behind for a couple hours under the watchful eyes of the Lady that books the Tours as no one is allowed in without a guide, and Dogs cannot join us again! Not my favorite way to go but I think it will be worth it
    I am still lost within the images of Monument Valley! Hard to get tired of it when they project such a constant change of shadows throughout the day starting with sunrise, specially when no one is around but us
    The rest of the images are here
    Be well always Ara & Spirit
