Yesterday, June 8, 2013, Rusty, Ramiro and I got together for a pre-departure chat to make sure we were all well prepared and ready to roll. All was well with the exception that Rusty hurt his back earlier this day so he was iffy whether he would still join us. He would sleep on it and let us know.
Ramiro is a work colleague that decided to join us. We are happy to have him along.
This morning Rusty gave us the bad news that his back had gotten worse and he therefore was out. He will not be able to make it! :o(
So as things look right now Ramiro and I will meet tomorrow at Café 27 on US27 and we will be on our way
Stay tuned for our next update.

Rusty and I had planned to repeat our USA Four Corners ride last year, which was postponed till this year because Vera and I purchased a new home, but then Rusty had to have surgery two weeks ago to replace his ACL and he was forced to take time off from work that left him with not enough time to take off to complete this ride. So instead we are going to complete a shorter ride that will be to the Grand Canyon and back. Departure date is scheduled for June 10th.
