    Southwest jaunt

    So I was supposed to meet my wife at Lake Mead Rec Area, but she bailed cause of the 75 mph winds the night before, south of Vegas... and because of my reports of the sandstorm I endured that accompanied the winds.





    That's just north of 29 Palms, I'm headed east on 62 trying to avoid the storm (in my truck, w TW on back) but it caught me on 95 north...



    I made it to Lake Mead and the camper next to me had a TW on the back of his van!



    He was 70 year old guy, we rode the sand and gravel for 3 days. Fun was had!

    Great pics. Pretty cool to run into another TW by the side of a lake too.

    I got hit with very high winds in the Indio/Palm Springs area 6 years ago on my street bike....I was having to lean way into the wind - I had to stop under a freeway bridge and wait for it to die down. Wind in that area can be intense and come up quick!
