Just a few more days... I think.

Heidi is babysitting in Denver, while our Daughter is doing a show to promote her photog business... I'm trying to button up a couple of things here...

As soon as those things are all done... the only thing left is waiting for our accountant to put the bow on our tax stuff... we could haul out before then... but faxing and such would be a hassle... so we'll hang tough for a couple days and wait out this One Last Thing... so we can put our signatures on it and stick it in the mail...

Then?... I believe we'll roll south/southwest toward Mesa Verde... and the canyon country of Utah... over to Zion... and finally... put this show on the road... I never would have dreamed what seemed such a simple thing... to sell out a bunch of junk, haul out... and live slow and easy, would have taken such a long and miserable struggle to get cut loose... We started workin' on this in the late winter of '06... It's been better than four years of turmoil! Lordy!

Guess I was chained up stronger than even I imagined! :o)

Well, that's OK... most of the chains are gone... the ones remaining rusty and weak... and they're tied on an Ol' buster that purty much don't give a hoot for any of that any more... the road is close now... just a few days...

The ramp showed up day before yesterday... did a test load yesterday... Hmmm, that first look... kind of gets your attention for a minute...

*First look at my Black Widow Motorcycle Ramp*
 But... I've come too far to let a few Jiggly Quivers stop me now... So...

*12' Black Widow Motorcycle Ramp and Loaded Raider*
... and I didn't just ride off the other side! :o)

I almost made a video of that first load... then... decided... if It all went south on me... maybe I wouldn't want Such Doin's on record... I will be putting a loading video on the motorcycle site in the next day or so I think... soon as I Do make one.

There is one lil' issue... when the bike first starts up the ramp, with the front wheel on the ramp and the back on the dirt... the break there lifts my feet off the ground, so there's no walking it up slow and easy. A fella has to commit and just Ride It! :o)

Gettin' it back off was no big deal either... I can just walk down beside it with hand on break and clutch... No Worries...

I still need to double check turning clearances and such but not expecting anything unexpected there...

Clouded up and misty rain this morning ramp and truck are wet... so I guess I won't do another test load... till the sun comes back out... and yes... I will likely not do much loading/unloading in bad weather... just no need... I've done enough in the rain for this year! :o)

Just a couple more days... all I have to do is stay out of trouble...

Take Good Care
