The 29 Palms Ride was another stellar event with a good time had by all. It was a good, safe ride without any injuries. Speaking of injuries, one has a better chance of getting whacked out at that crazy bar – The Palms,
a favorite hang out of Dee Cameron and Tim Graber. I have never been to this fine establishment without a fight breaking out or there’s an old lady pulling down her pants! This time a local toothless guy came within two centimeters or being run over by another toothless guy- both of whom were roaring drunk! All club members made it back unscathed.
Dinner was at the rib joint and it was first class – everyone enjoyed the meal. The next day we headed through the park and most people rode through the box canyon to
. The weather was good and there were no breakdowns! Saturday night we had our party at the 29 Palms Mecca Innwhere we had another great meal in a beautiful setting.
Sunday brought us up to Keys View for a bird’s-eye view of the desert, how sweet it is! Lunch was on your own; we packed it up around 11:30 AM., and called it a weekend. By the way, hats off to Ken, the owner of the Rancho Dolores. He had the pool redone, the rooms freshly painted, minifridges in the room, and all for a reasonable price. See you there next year!
