June 1-4, 2017 Ride

Well, after my trip to Michigan, I added more miles on the bike in New Mexico and Arizona. We started from Santa Fe and worked our way down to Silver City. the next day we did the Gila Cliff Dwellings and I blew out my knee hiking around there. Thousands of stairs!

We left SF with 9 and returned with 7. Two returned early.

I support police, trust no politicians, and can argue any side of an argument just to amuse myself. People love me or hate me and those that are in-between don't know me.
