took a little trip... (lots of pics)

I thought I'd throw a couple pics from my last vaca.

Here's a map of my travels.
Put about 2500 miles on my truck, and only about 80 on my RC51.
Freaking rain every time I had an opportunity to ride.
I was planning on doing the Going To The Sun Hwy in Glacier National Park, but got rained out there too.

Anyway, I had great visits with many of my family and old friends, and took a few pics along the way.
The drive on Hwy 95 South from Sandpoint ID to Weiser ID (point I on the map) was totally beautiful and scenic. I stopped several times to take pictures and hike around for a bit.

Very nice pics, John! Sorry about the 80 miles.

You might be a little cray, though, posting your home location on the internet? What if Miguel or Atif just show up??

Do you ride your RC up onto it? Or walk beside while it powers itself up the ramp?

Those are used by what I like to refer as hillbillies

No offense, John.

Great pictures man. Those milage sounds like they should have been reversed.

Glad to see that I'm not the only one using a hitch rack. How do you have the rear strapped down?

Love the hitch rack I was wanting one for a long time now! Which one did you get and how much? Same with you James, if you please.

Has just realized that I don't care what it costs until I get the bill! :roll eyes: ...
