Packin' the gear
Pack in' up the gear. Headed out at o dark hundred for a flight to Tucson. Pickin' up a bike there. Road story for HD HOG magazine. Nogales,Az to Canada via US HWY 93. If you are along the route give me a shout out.
Flyin' back and forth across the southwest just to get to Tuscon.  So much for travelin' through the skies.  Looking for the the black strip of highway with the yellow line. Tucson HD had the bike polished and ready to go.  Harley dealers are unique.  It really is all about family.  Travel to a new destination, pick up a bike, be greeted like family.  Doesn't get any better.  Roll on the throttle, ridin' south toward the Mexico border.  First stop San Xavier Mission, the white castle of the desert.  
At Amado hit the brakes for the worlds largest concrete cow skull.  Big Horn Grill.  Closed.  For sale.  Sign reads: "Don't stop here if you are trying to sell us anything.  We are broke.  Keep moving on.  If you have any extra beer you can share with us, please come on in."  What a time not to have a cooler of cold ones with me.  Keep moving.
Nogales tonight.  Real Mexican food.  Only the cook and waitress working.  Know I am close to the border.  Make the turn at wall in the morning and head north to run HWY 93 border to border.  A good day to be on the road.

be strong, be safe, Carlan
