As I remember others who contributed to the fun, I will post more.
Some may see the blog, others may not. But they were all appreciated!
In no particular order, I give you:
Noelito. My crazy bro, thanks for the blog tips, dude. Next time, come along and be our chase vehicle!
The lovely couple on his and hers bikes we met in Moab, Utah. Thanks for the tips on rider-doggie care. Next time we head to Cali, coffee is on us!
The staff at the Economy Inn motel in Ozona. Our thanks, not just because you were the only motel that had rooms available but because you were very clean, very reasonably priced, and very rider friendly.
The nice couple from the Netherlands we met at the Grand Canyon (her name was Meep [?]) who were taking pictures of our license plate. We met briefly but enjoyed our chat and hope you will visit in Louisiana. Traveling is not just about where you go, but also who you share your experience with. Thanks for sharing it with us!
