... just not posting a lot. Last scan in Dec had me still NED. Yay. Next scan is in April.

Planning another motorcycle trip for May. No more gas station hot dogs!! Hope to actually do what I plan. Thinking about St Louis ( home in Florissant ) to San Antonio to check out the Alamo. Then to Carlsbad New Mexico to see the caverns then up to south rim of Grand Canyon then go to Salt Lake via the North Rim and up to Salt Lake. From there headed for Yellowstone, and finally Devils Tower (mountain from Close Encounters of 3rd time) and finally Sturgis SD just so I can say I have been there. Then back home. Last trip was just short of 2400 mi this will be around 5000. Of course all is subject to change before and en route.

Was glad to see Melanoma Mike back posting and hope to see him post that they got him all fixed. Well not fixed, fixed, but healthy is what I meant.

I know I don't post much but I check out the posts about 3 - 4 times a week. My thanks you to all for being here and for all the info, and support I see here every time I check.

To everyone: Hang in there!! it gets rough but we can still win.

This is good news, MIke!!! And your trip sounds wonderful!

I'm planning a SoCal to Glacier NP (via Grand Teton NP and Yellowstone) this summer. To be honest, I just can't wait.

Happy trails!
