Hit some rain in the mountains so I suited up. Of course it stopped almost immediately. Found this creepy place. Not sure they intended it to look like a place you’d be murdered by the caretaker…
After soaking in my own juices in this rain gear, it doesn’t breathe, it finally started raining cats and dogs. The drops pelting me like paint balls. I have the miserable misfortune to get behind 2 semi trucks, one of which is an oversized load. They’re doing 40 up the mountain. Just slow enough that the rain doesn’t quite blow off my visor. The road is all tight curves and shear cliffs. Arkansas river to one side, mountain on the other. Nerve racking!!!
Forgot to post these photos. Kinda random, but thought they were cool and just odd.
This is the Estes rocket plant! You know, model rockets! I stumbled upon it when I drove 5 miles past where my GPS wanted me to go. Nice bit of chance, there. The GPS has been acting weird since I updated the maps. It freezes up and periodically screeches like a banshee. Wtf?
Giant fucking bugs!!!
