On the riad again ... rollin' and ROCKIN!!

The rain started early on Vancouver Island, so I bailed and am heading South for another Winter of fun in the sun. Arizona first, concentrating on Flagstaff and Tucson. I will be there tomorrow, Oct 24 - 26. Then, over the Mexican border at Nogales, and wander aimlessly till I want to stop for a while.

Not sure exactly where and when, but will probably end up at Lake Chapala again and spend at least a few months there.

PS: I have re-defined myself for this trip. As I near 70 yrs old, my definition of adventure has changed. No more crazy scary adrenaline junky stuff for me. These days I travel with my own folding rocking chair. Yep! I am now that old codger in the rocking chair, watching life go by off my front porch.
BUT ....
My front porch moves around a lot.

LAZ1 at Rancho Los Rosales

A big welcome to LAZ1 who, if he travels well - with his motorhome, will be at the ranch this day.

Now would be a great place for overlanders to relax at the ranch and meet LAZ1 - spend a clear cool night or two at 7000 ft in the mountains of northern Arizona.

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1442948...tes&s=8oHlIvvW For Free!

We are not booked for a couple nights and when we are not booked - HUBBERS stay for free. And there is always free camping and RV parking with electric hook ups.

Rosa del Desierto will also be at the ranch where drinks are always on the house at the world famous "Spy Bar" Melongas are held nightly.

Laz1 at Rancho Los Rosales

Update:

LAZ1 and Zena - his faithful companion, rolled in yesterday afternoon. - After parking his motorhome he promptly hit our hot tub - for hours. Then invited us to dinner at the Horseman's Lodge, where on the weekends, young cowgirls - on horseback guide you into a parking space. Once inside the Horseman's Lodge you can't help but notice the dead animals hanging on the walls. The steaks and salad bar are great and the manhattans not bad either.

Today, we walked out the back gate and into the national forest where we found a suitable spot an sighted in the new scope on one of my survival rifles. We also plunked away with the 4/10 and I drank heavily from my flask - LAZ1 doesn't drink alcohol.

Aside from having been a Canadian Army officer, LAZ1 is an expert gunsmith.

Right now, he is off to a downtown bicycle shop as he carries a mountain bike on the back of his rig and later he asked if he could take my KLR650 for a spin. Guess he will overnight at the ranch again tonight - so anyone wanting to meet LAZ1 should show up soon.

All is well here, weather absolutely beautiful - warm days with blue skies....clear cool nights with bright stars.

Over and Out from 7,000 ft in the mountains of northern Arizona

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
