It's a Small World After All

 

So I'm cruising from "Flag" to the "Canyon" on the 180.  I come up upon some roadwork and our direction is stopped.  There are 2 couples on different colored "Street-Glides" right in front of me.  We ride together in a pack and we all stop for gas in Valle as we catch the 64.  We start talking.........one guy's name is "ski" and the other is "rob"....I didn't  catch the wives names........Low and behold....(Mike, Paul, and Steven) they are from Destin Florida.  Destin is about an hour from where brother Mike lives and son Steven did some training at Eglin AFB at Fort Walton Beach.  They invite me to ride with them to the "Canyon".  Once we get there, we hang out for a few.  The see me change from my riding gear into my hiking gear and we go our separate ways.....

It's a small world after all...

Don't you just love when things like that happen. I do !!!! We have found out over the years it is a small world. So happy you are able to enjoy a part of our small world.
Stay safe " 143 "

Yes, this big 'ol world of ours can get small in a hurry. When Mom, Dad & I took our trip to visit Mike in Germany back in the 70's, who did I run into in the Frankfurt airport halfway across the globe...a kid from my class visiting HIS relatives. It's strange to be somewhere new and be reminded of something familiar.

Glad you enjoyed the canyon. If that doesn't humble a person, I don't think anything can!

Looking forward to more pics, more commentary and above all...more golf!! Enjoy and see you in 17 days...not that I'm counting or anything ;-))

Forget Sedona; I'm convinced there is a vortex up near the Canyon. I ALWAYS run into long lost people up there!
