meeting the historian - to be continued
(Almost) ex-military, orv, and abrests! to be continued
I always stop at the Flying J just before SLC, as I've made it through the stark terrain of western Nevada and the amazing and equally desolate Great Salt Flats & Lake.
It is always at this stop that the most unfriendly people seem to congregate - maybe there's a convention there when I happen through.
As I filled my tank (grrrrr I'm forced to run diesel because of the temperature), a pickup truck hauling a long trailer carrying a string of those ugly orv = off road vehicles looking like mini tanks, and two very young, very white, very clean shaven i.e. no hair, men jumped out, demanding "what is 'abrest'"?
