June 24, 2007 - The Trip West


6/24 - Last night I had a premonition that bad people were gonna slice most of the way through the tiedowns that secure the Harley to the lift, which would likely result in the loss of the bike, severe damage to the Jeep, and possible injury to others on the highway.This morning I could hardly wait to exmine the rig to make sure my imagination was just running in overdrive. The picture below shows what I found - not cut, but worn most of the way through...fortunately I had a spare. Weird!

We took a detour through St Louis just to see the arch. Carol snapped a thousand pictures and this is the best.
