Default When Life Gives You Lemons

Make Lemonade.

Today, I was about 3.5 hours into a business trip to southern Arizona when I received a call that unexpected circumstances necessitated that we postpone the meeting. Thankfully, I was riding my Harley and a quick map check confirmed I was only 1:45 from Tombstone..,so what the hell, Tombstone it was.

I managed to put in about 500 miles today (491 to be exact) and I saw some beautiful Arizona landscape via several highways (60, 70, 191, 80, 82, 90, & 10).

I didnít get a lot of pictures...I was caught up in the ride.

Tombstone is a great detour, also provides a good starting point for a shot over to Nogales,

thanks for the pic

`Wish we still used them today.

Did you take in the Wild West Show while there? You know, the shoot outs, etc.

Did Tombstone last summer the same week as Hwy 666. Airline lost my bags coming out to AZ (rented a bike) and all I had was the clothes on my back. Hit a few stores and got some shorts etc. So the guys took this pic of me on a beer run after dinner in Tombstone.....hey ya wear what ya got......lol. Learned you can travel very light when you have to.
