OK mutants... those headed to Bryce...

We're keeping it loose but...
Marty and Bob are planning to arrive Bryce 8/19. Weather permitting Bob may be ready to fly 8/20... he has a spot picked out about an hour from Rubys. Takes a 1/2 hour to set up and off they go into the wild blue younger. May fly other days and it's a morning and / or evening thing. We will work that out as we go.

I would like to make reservations for Ebenezers Friday 8/21 and will need a head count. Will send an email to the group on that.

As for Jeep trails - and rentals - Jeff - for the unsupervised jeepers - you, Dave, Ed, Dwayne etc... can you (Jeff) look into trails for the Jeep owners...

Tim - are you still thinking of renting a jeep. We probably need to look into that.

I'm still thinking I might want to do the supervised ATV rental - 1 hour ride - right out of Rubys - or maybe the sunset ride.

http://www.rubysinn.com/activities-i...ded-atv-tours/

Then of course there's the park itself. Not sure of the best way to see the park... tour or let's all caravan...

More to come... and it's real mutants! Bryce is upon us....

We did Bryce several years ago. The donkey ride was very good down to the bottom or the canyon. Some of the finest atv trails are all around the area. Along with hikes.
Just jealous!!!

Ha Gary, are there good roads that 4wheel drives can take and see the canyon? My Tahoe is 4wheel drive but not lifted any!

Well I think I've got you beat! Regardless not sure how much longer before it comes off. Locks of love will get mine donated in memory of my buddy that just died of CA. I did have to trim my beard since I last saw you. People kept thinking I was with duck dynasty.

BTW - Kingman is a pretty cool town. Lots of Route 66 history here. May not get to see it all with the other things going on but it will be on the return list. The weather is much cooler and nice than I would have imagined. Been at the picnic table in complete shade since 7 am... breezy and very nice!
If your in Kingman you need to drive a little southeast to Oatman it's awesome with live shoot outs and wild donkeys that walk in the stores.

God it makes me feel so good to help someone. When I can. Have a great night
Well done my friend, well done.

My own recent story:

I was traveling down the highway and came across some commotion on the side of the road. As I slowly drove by, I saw a group of cyclists sitting on the road with a group of people huddling around them. I passed, turned around and asked if they needed First Aid (I'm a Level 1 First Aid), to which they retorted "Yes Please"!
Apparently, the woman was crossing some rail road tracks and got her front cycle tire in the rail crossing, did an end over end and landed on her shoulder, elbow and hip. Her skin was gashed open on her elbow down to the bone.
I took out my first aid kit, administered first aid. Someone suggested calling an ambulance, however we were about 15 miles from the city and likely it would take 25 minutes for the ambulance to arrive. I could see she was going into shock. and offered to drive her and her husband to the hospital right away. They agreed and I helped her into my truck, put their bikes in the back and drove them to the Emergency.
I waited for her husband to take her in and then I drove him and the bikes home to get his own vehicle.
He couldn't thank me enough times and offered me money for my troubles.
I refused and said "Maybe one day I'll be on the side of the road and in need of help and I believe someone will also stop for me". I gave him my card and said "Just send me an email and let me know how your wife is doing".
He welled up in tears, shook my hand and said "Thank you so much again" and commended me on my Good Samaritan act.

I left with a full heart!
It made my day and I know it was a good thing to do! I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
A well done to you Les, well done.

The only way to live. What goes around, comes around.

Here is my story of the day. As we were driving into the RV park we stopped at the ice machine. I put my money in and nothing happened. Hmmm! Put a little more money in, just in case. Nothing happened. I pushed a few more buttons and finally the "Change" button. You would have thought I hit the jackpot. Quarters kept filling the coin return, then nickels. I told my neighbor what happened and he had the phone number for the owner of the machine. I called him, told him what happened and that after removing the money I put in he had $15 and some nickels coming to him if he would like to pick it up. He was very appreciative and is making arrangement to come get his money.

Found out he is a Wounded Warrior and he and his wife went into business supplying ice machines around the area.

Feels good.
