    Is anyone interested in a cross country trip out to California next summer??
    My husband and I are planning a cross country trip next summer from Wilkes-Barre area to Carlsbad California. I really would like to have someone to ride with, anyone interested?
    We have never done this before. We would like to take 5 weeks to do it, so we won't be rushed and can stop and take in a lot of sites.

    All I can say is, I really admire people who can plan so far ahead. Have you roughed out a route yet? Going due west or maybe swinging south first? If you're coming down through Georgia or even NC/TN I could do a short stretch with you, schedule permitting. Keep everyone updated!

    2008 Western Legends Roundup Great fun..special if ya like Western Movies...probably more movies were filmed here than any other place in the US...also very close to 3 very exciting destinations...North Rim of the Grand Canyon...84 miles. Zion National Forest...around 40 miles....Bryce Canyon...around 60 miles...Also you would be very suprised to see what movies and t.v. shows were filmed here. If your a animal lover it has the Worlds largest no kill shelter called "Best Friends"....Also its 'bout 3 hours from Las Vegas...Riding distance to some of the most beautiful rides in the country.

    Before last year when we found this town I'd never heard of this place...but since our first visit we fell in love with it...We were traveling from Durango Colo...just looking for some place to spend a night...we ended up staying a week and now we can not wait to share this with a few of our closest friends which if the good Lord willin and the Creeks don't rise we're gonna show em next year on the Harleys...:D
