It occurred to me as I looked down the road the my bud Jerry Bayha and I rode this road on our epic Rt. 66 trip in September of 2003. How the time flies!

Eleven and a half hours later, we pulled into Mesa, Arizona in time for me to take this picture and catch some dinner. What a day… the Painted Desert and more. On Thursday we play the Mesa Arts Center. Good times!

I love this country! Onward…
