Check out time was 11:00 am and that was our goal since our next destination was so close we saw no need to ride in the cold. We were hoping it would warm up before we left. I geared up and put on my heated jacket (it was still chilly) and hit the highway pretty much at 11:00 sharp and headed south on I-17. No pretty, winding, two laners today. Although, I-17 out of Flagstaff is really pretty spectacular on its own. Traffic was light and we were making good time, not that we were in a hurry! About 30 miles out of Flagstaff I told Eric to take the next rest stop exit, which we did. I couldn't get that gear off quick enough! It had gone from mid-50's to 80 something in that short amount of time! Amazing what dropping 2500 feet will do!
We spent maybe 20 minutes at the rest stop, changing out gear, checking emails, blah, blah, blah. Oh, I did take a few pictures :-)
The temperatures got higher and higher and higher. Oh my!!! Super hot! It's like 100 plus! I was so happy when we rolled into our hotel for the next several nights. Here it is, the Best Westie in Sun City.
I then called Barry, my contact, and met up at the gate after securing our bikes. Barry took us to the booth and introduced us to Max, the leader of the pack, the dude who actually leads the tours that we would be promoting. Oh, good stuff!!!!
So, we eventually found the MAXimal Tours booth! Here we are ready to learn, share and enlighten others on the fun MAXimal tours to Ireland, Scotland and the Alps!
We are official!
All for this evening,
