Out Scouting the Old Warhorse

Already over a thousand miles from home but better late then never. Today I am preping for a weekend trip to Salton Sea. I was invited to an Airhead rally there with the old BMW. Will try to get lots of photos for you.

Feb 3. Turning North into the desert toward the Picatchoes. This is where Patton trained his tank troops for the North African invasion.

Nice ride!

I'd have been nervous on that BMW hack rig, Patton was just too good at targeting German machinery!

I envy you. I'd love to see all the Airheads. I was a Brick rider personally but love looking at Airs. (I know, I know, real BMWs have 2 cylinders)

Sat. 4th.
Went for a short recon to the nearby town of Niland and the strange settlement of Slab City.

In Niland I ran onto a local parade.
