Camping outside St. George Utah

Desert camping with Scott

Odd thing happened yesterday, after I ordered a tire from the local bike shop, I figured I would overnight nearby in town.  The next morning I woke to the sound of knocking on the door, and I slowly made my way to find nobody outside.  I figured it must have been one of my many fans, and started some coffee.  About the time coffee was ready, some sum-bitch pulled up and was writing a note, and headed towards the bus.  It only took me a second to recognize the face of a buddy I met last year – Scott from the RTR!!

We caught up a bit, and he told me he was camped outside of town, and told me to join him – I was excited to join him, as he rides a dual sport too, and has been living a similar life as me for the past year.  When I picked up my tires I headed the six miles or so south into Arizona, and onto the plateau with mountains surrounding.  We wound up going to dinner at a nice steak restaurant, and this morning I went exploring the desert.img_20161119_123826

img_20161119_124549I found some petroglyphs less than 5 miles away and took a few pics.  Apparently the LIttle Black Mountain petroglyphs range in age over 8,000 years and many tribes of natives.  I probably found less than 100 of the 500 described to be in the area.  It was a short day of riding as I was underdressed for the weather.  I did get a feel for what I was in store for the rest of November.  I think I will like St. George.

  1. I bet it is extra good to have someone to hang out with.
    Your bus is one of a kind, so the chances of being spotted by someone who would know you get better every month you live in those parts.
    I like this story!
