Colorado Trip – Day 2

We had a great day today, filled with fun, frolics, and Cops…

 

Between Ouray and Silverston, overlooking a waterfall.

It rained hard tonight. We were fortunate enough to be allowed to pitch our tents under this large circus tent. We stayed dry.

 

Quin was really happy.

 

Mike was really mad…

 

Good times with the boys.

 

Happy now, but these two fought like a married couple.

 

Jared and Brad. Ask Jared what we called his helmet.

 

Having a greasy burger at Maggies in Ouray.

 

Brad and the Gay Cop from Wild Hogs.

So here is the story. I got pulled over by this real friendly cop. He told me that the speed limit was 45. I told him that I did see the 55 sign, but didn’t see the 45 sign. He took my license and registration and walked back to his motorcycle. It was then that he said to the group, are you guys the wild hogs. Kent said, “Well if we are the wild hogs, then you must be the gay cop.”

When I walked over to him after they had that dialogue, he told me that he was only going to give me a warning until Kent made that comment, and that now he was going to give me a ticket. And I said really? And he said, “No, just kidding.” He gave me a warning, and allowed me to have my picture taken with him.

 

The Ironton’s mine.

All in all, it was a really eventful day. We are looking forward to tomorrow. We’ll be headed north up to Gunnision, Colorado.
