Sunday, 13 July 2008


I left out of here on Thursday July 3rd and rode up to WI just past Madison where I met up with Powder at her cabin. Of course, it was raining when I left, rode 200 of the 400 in the rain, but by the time I got there, the sky had cleared and it cool and the sun was shining. We took a walk down to the lake and had dinner and called it an early night. Got up around 6:45AM, after coffee and a shower we were on our way to Albert Lea,MN to meet Red. Red's riding an old shovel known as PIG BITCH and BITCH she is and she choose July 4th to show her Bitch self off. Started the morning with Red telling us that the coil had come off, broken bolt and would be late. We slowed our pace and got to the Truckstop an hour later than scheduled, got a call from RED and now there was a loose wire from the coil that had to be fixed, meet you down the road. We detoured our original route to meet up with her and finally they putted in. I'm not even going to go there as to PIG BITCH'S behavior the rest of the weekend, it's a shovel, do the math. We got to Algona later than expected and still found a pretty good place to pitch our tent's. Friday night Jackyl played and Saturday it was Joe Diffie. I have to give a huge thumbs up to Iowa ABATE, they sure know how to put on an event top notch. They had trucks coming through all day cleaning the outhouses, very clean shower house, cheap cold beer and food available 24hrs. This is the old Humboldt Rally in case you were wondering, it will be an annual event from now on for me. Saturday we went on a poker run 100% payback and I came in third and took home $175.00 cash. Since it was a fun run put on by the local bars, I kept it instead of donating back like most events we go to. That paid for my gas (can you believe I'm saying that?). We also stopped by the Grotto of Redemption which was on the poker run route,I'm thinking it was in West Bend, IA, all made of stone, pretty cool to walk through it and check out the artwork. We hung out Saturday night and watched Joe Diffie and headed back to camp around midnight. I made camp coffee every day and I guess you could call it getting old, but...we were up both mornings by 7:00am, not hung over and ready to go, feeling the pain of our neighbor's around us and being that the coffee was way up on the hill at the concession's, we were glad to share. You know, been there, done that to many time's, and waking up in a campgound without a hangover was a first for me, and it felt good. I drank a couple beer's, but I like the taste of beer, not the effect, so by midnight, I was back to Soda. We said our goodbyes while Red wrenched on PIG BITCH AGAIN and Powder and I rode East together as far as Cedar Rapids and we parted ways. Had a great weekend. I'm going to Los Angeles on Thursday and will be back after next weekend. Have a Great Week, CG
