Climbing Athena back for More GMR

Second week in a row! Like man that have been introduced to GMR, they come back for seconds. Alyce and Herb back for more and plus some. We added another 5 miles on GRR so that they could see the other side. They were pleased with the scenery. Planning the ride we were worried about the heat, what heat? It was cool and cloudy, fog on GMR. At the start I was wishing that I had an under layer. Remained cool throughout the ride and never really got hot.

ABEC joined us for the ride, yeah, he's been missing GMR ha ha! About 4 miles up GMR (the blogger) catches us and rides with us for a bit. Then Matt rolls by a bit later. We chat at the shack for a bit then head off to Peacock Saddle with Herb and Alyce. Again GMR and Matt run us down but this time cruise along with us to the turn around. Gina once again did well today along with Alyce. Hmm, Alyce had plans to make it to the village sometime soon. Thoughts ran through heads today but I figure another trip to Peacock Saddle would be best. But they sure seem anxious ha ha!

Gina wore leg cover today. Her legs were chewed up pretty bad by the bugs last week. Thought she was smart but at the end of the ride, a bee got the best of her arm, ouch! Did manage to run into Ray Clone once again. He rolled by in his red Jeep while we rested at the saddle. One look at the big smile rolling by and we knew it was Ray! Cool guy, he pulled over for a chat with GRM and Matt. Then waited for us to say hello. Nice guy! If Gina says he's real nice, then it's got to be true! BTW, I really like Matt, he always has something nice to say about my blog ha ha!

GMR is the Stairway to Heaven ha ha!

Figures it would be Warner Music Group, the greediest record label around other than Sony. One of the very few videos I put music on is also blocked in several countries.

Bummer! If I knew which songs weren't blocked at all, I'd use them but I never know till I post it. Of course, just about every song I use is blocked in one country or another. I try to look up songs on the audio swap so that I know they'd work but the list is very limited.

Thanks, Gina picked the song. Yup, the speaking part is cool, so many riders and new people (subjects) out there!
