Hey. I think that guy in yellow is riding my bike! One doesn't hear about 'riding to the Dead Sea" in bike magazines. Exotic. I love it.

Did you guys get any fishing in during your trip? Here in Kentucky you wouldn't have had to carry bait, they sell it in the vending machines.

Thanks berts.

I never thought about winter or mountains in the desert. I did some searching on scorpion's ascent and found it interesting. I really like reading about these types of rides....gives me a chance to learn new things
