After a few relaxing days wandering about, (all who wander are not lost)
I am back in the Valley of the Sun. Spent some time down south,did a little bird hunting, and finished the journey today. Our final night together was spent camping near Clints Well, after a fairly tough day doing a typical "tomshell where are we now how did we get on this rocky piece of shit trail" ride from Kingman to the Rim. As soon as we arrived in camp, near dark, the thunder welcomed us and the rain started right after setting our tents up. We countered with Jiffy Pop, pale ale, and some insightful conversation with most likely the strangest person we met on the entire trip. A real nut job who had it in for germans.....What a freak. Anyways, we tried to get a fire going,mainly to burn some gear we were sick of hanging onto,but the wood was so wet we could not get it alight. So I said, "Piss on it Ben, it wont light". And he did.
Piss on it Ben
What we awoke to near Clints Well on Thursday

Suited up and ready to ride
It's back to work tomorrow for me and Ben is off to Colorado for a week or so before he rejoins us working stiffs. I hope to put up a wrap up post, and maybe a "best of" photo link, so feel free to check back in in a week or so if interested. Thanks again to all the contributors, and special thanks are on the way.....
Nice trip guys! Super write ups and pictures. It was a blast to follow along. Put together a nice dvd or picture disk for us guys that didnt go. Looks like you'll be back on the lunch stop loop.
Look forward to meeting up. Where is the after party?
An outstanding share! I've just forwarded this onto a coworker who was conducting a little research on this. And he actually bought me lunch simply because I found it for him... lol. So let me reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to talk about this subject here on your website.
