The Summer of 2016 (so far)


Well, here we are about halfway through the summer in the Northern Hemisphere and there’s lots of things going on(in the world and in our little corner). We will stick with our little corner, since the world is in moderate chaos right now. Here is a quick summary of our highlights-

  1. Wolfpack Summer Fun

The grandkids are older and bigger, but the Wolfpack is the same size and so we are gearing down a little on the sleepovers. Here are a few highlights from several visits. four out of six so far, but we are trying to corral the other two. Here you see Patrick, Angus, Margeaux and the new, little guy, Marcus.

2. Dotti’s annual Skimos Motorcycle weekend

Every summer we ride the Hogs up to Jackson N.H. and then take a ride to Rangely Maine. This year we encountered rainy weather, but couldn’t postpone due to everyone having a full summer schedule, so we soldiered on.

3.Bicycle Ride to the Gurnet

A few weeks ago Red Fox said she wanted to go on a bicycle ride, so I showed her a 20 mile route from Brant Rock, through Green Harbor and then over to Duxbury Beach and down to the Gurnet. It was great except that about 10 miles were hard packed dirt and it was a hot weekend day. Anyway, we made it and the scenery was great.

4. Manomet Mystery Riders Bicycle Ride

This year, due to many members of our motorcycle club not riding anymore and needing a more sedate activity, we formed the MMRBC (Manomet Mystery Riders Bicycle Club). Our first ride was a few weeks ago down in Rhode Island. It was a 20 mile ride with a lengthy lunch break at the halfway mark.

5. Red Fox hits the big 70

Believe it or not, Red Fox turned 70 June 1st. We hightailed it up to Newburyport for a celebration with her old friends.

That’s it for now! More exciting news soon, including information on Hawk’s latest book. Stay tuned.

Sixth Year Anniversary


Yesterday, June 12 2016, marked the sixth anniversary of the beginning of our great adventure. It was on this day that we picked up The 2006 Wolfpack Toy Hauler at Flagg RV in Uxbridge Mass. with our buddy Roadglide Dave and drove it back to Humarock MA, for a trial run to Laconia Bike Week. For those of you new to our blog, here is a quick summary of our rig.P1040657

The Wolfpack was (and still is) a 20o6 model, manufactured by Forest River. It is 30 feet long, not counting the hitching portion, which you can see in the picture above, underneath the white propane tanks’ white cover. The hauling vehicle, an F-350 Ford diesel xtra cab is also a 2006 model. We had actually purchased the Toy Hauler first and then had to go looking for a truck capable of pulling it, plus our two Harleys, plus all our belongings (approximately 5 tons). The Toyota Tacoma that I had at that time was not even close to being able to haul 5 tons!

We towed her home and prepared for a trip to Laconia Bike Week. You can see all of our adventures on that trip, including all 4 tires blowing out and a blown head gasket, in Volume One of our book, “Hawk and Red Fox-Modern Day Gypsies”, available at

 http://www.nstarsolutions.com/store/home.php?provider=harleyhawk

or by going to “Hawk’s Books” on Facebook.

The Wolfpack has a ramp up which we are able to ride our Harleys , after collapsing our living room. Then, when we travel across the country, we still have the use of the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. The pictures below will give you an ides of how it all works.

 

 

On the road, traveling overnight, we still have heat, refrigeration, hot water and propane cooking. We are able to stay overnight in a Walmart parking lot and then move on the next day. Each year when we return to New England for the Summer, we stay at the same campground, Blackman’s Point in Brant Rock MA. For those of you new to our blog, we will review Blackman’s in our next post.

When last you heard from us, we were in Zion N.P. in Utah from 4/7 to 4/20. This is our favorite N.P. and this was our third time there. Two weeks however was enough and we decided it was time to move on and continue heading East towards our home state, Massachusetts.IMG_20160407_184307_520

We wanted to visit a few more areas out West before making a beeline home but the weather throughout the West was showing a week of rain no matter where we headed. What to do? We didn’t want to head home yet because our summer campground doesn’t open until May 1 and the weather in New England can really be dismal in early May. The light bulb finally went off and we decided to head to The Great Smokey Mountain N.P. in TN. This is near the infamous Dragon’s Tail road in Deal’s Gap and is a favorite with motorcycle thrill seekers (318 hairpin turns in 11 miles!). I had been there about 9 years ago, but Red Fox had not. So off we went.

It took us 7 days to get there and we did the usual overnight stays at Motel Walmart each night. Here is a quick summary-

4/21-Zion Utah to Winslow AZ

4/22-Winslow AZ to Edgewood N.M.

4/23-Edgewood N.M. to Amarillo TX

4/24-Amarillo TX to Henryetta OK

4/25-Henryetta OK to Conway AR

4/26-Conway AR to Dickson TN

4/27-Dickson TN to Townsend TN-Caves Cove Campground 

P1070840

We would have been there in 6 days, but we had 2 blowouts on 4/25 and had to get 4 new tires.

Other excitement along the way-

  2. Local redneck boys all showing off their glass-pack mufflers in the Walmart parking lot until 10:30 p.m.
  3. Long, 7 mile windy/hilly back road off route 40 to get to the Dickson TN Walmart
  4.  Long, very narrow, very steep, 9 mile road from Townsend TN to the campground in G.S.M.N.P.

IMG_20160428_114454_701

(Our campsite in G.S.M.N.P)

This campground is one of the quietest we have ever been in and was the most beautifully wooded area we had ever visited. It was a very tight squeeze getting into one of the few sites large enough for the Wolfpack, but we managed after a few tries and a minor dent in the front, right side of the pickup.The weather was iffy and we had to get the Hogs out on the road right away. We rode for 2 days and then hiked and bicycled for 2 days, due to severe thunderstorms predicted for days 3 and 4.

Our first day of riding was on the Dragon’s Tail and our second day was over the mountains to Maggie’s Valley (where I had stayed in 2007? with my Manomet Mystery Rider Club).

Bicycling on Cades Cove Loop

There is a beautiful 11 mile loop road adjacent to our campground in GSMNP. We rode it on our 3rd day there and it was one of the most beautiful rides we had ever taken. It was like going back to the early 1900s. When the park was established they preserved all the cabins and out buildings. Here are some pictures of that ride, including some up close bear shots.

Our campground-Cades Cove Campground

Here are several shots of our idyllic campground. It was the quietest, most serene campground we have stayed in and quite a change from the campgrounds out West.

After 5 great days at GSMNP, we packed up and headed for our summer camp in Brant Rock MA. We arrived home to typical gloomy New England Spring weather with the temperature dropping to 41 on our second night home. But that’s a story for our next posting.

Zion Mount Carmel Highway


Today, after waiting for some windy, unsettled weather to move through during the last two days, we have the Harleys all polished up to ride on Mount Carmel Highway towards Kanab and Fredonia. At that point we will be just north of the Arizona border. We probably won’t go as far as Page AZ. We did this ride last year and the scenery coming through the Zion Canyon is spectacular. I videoed most of it last year. Below is one of the best clips.

Also, shown below, from yesterday, are some fabulous shots of the long horn steers on a farm here called two feathers Farm. These long horns are so much more picturesque than regular steers.

Zion Chapter 3


Yesterday we returned to Zion for the third year in a row (Can you tell we love it?). Right away, today (4/10), we redid one of our favorite hikes, Watchman’s, which is conveniently located right near our campsite. I am attaching pictures from last year, rather than redoing them all. Here for your enjoyment once again are the best ones. We were here earlier last year, hence the Saint Paddy’s day regalia in some of the shots.

Joshua Tree N.P. to Death Valley N.P.


Last week we picked up camp and moved north from Joshua Tree N.P. to Death Valley. We had friends who were there waiting for us and we wanted to catch them before they left. We knew it would be hot, but figured we could handle it. The ride from J.T. to D.V. is about 300 miles and we decided to cut across Mojave National Preserve to get there. We were on the south side of J.T., so we first had to drive across J.T. to 29 Palms. Then we got on Amboy Road and followed it to Amboy. Then a right onto Old National Highway Trail (which I believe is part of Route 66) and then a left onto Kelbaker Road, which crosses Mojave Preserve.

(Hawk and Karen’s two books are available at http://www.nstarsolutions.com/store/home.php?provider=harleyhawk)

We actually saw more Joshua Trees in Mojave than we did in J.T.. We did hit a snag at Kelso, in that Kelbaker was closed at that point. We had to detour up to Cima and follow the detour to Route 15. This added about 35 miles to our trip. Then we followed 15 south to Baker and got on Route 127 to Death Valley Junction and Route 190.The attached map gives you a general idea. J.T is down towards the bottom, Mojave is in the middle and D.V. is a the top.

We were greeted warmly by Larry, Barb, Greg and Kathy and were soon all set up next to their rigs. We had a killer domino tournament the next day with the guys emerging victorious.

A couple of days later we took a motorcycle ride to Lone Pine CA by way of Stove Pipe Wells and Panamint Springs. We have some great videos, but the internet is too weak here to post them. We will get them up at a later time. We were here last year and like it here a lot, but it gets hot fast after March ends. Low 90s for the past few days. Below are more pictures of the Forest Service Campground and surrounding areas.

Hiking and Biking In Joshua Tree


Here are some pictures and videos of 2 hikes we took here in Joshua Tree N.P.. We are almost at the end of our 2 week stay here and will be pushing north soon, towards Death Valley. Red Fox shot over to Huntington Beach for Easter to be with her family and yours truly held the desert fort. We are about 150 miles from Huntington Beach and she, of course, rode her Harley. What a girl!

The two hikes are Lost Palms Oasis and Ryan’s Mountain. Both, of course, are in the “Challenging Hikes” category. Lost Palms was more level but much longer (7.2 miles). Ryan’s mountain was only 3 miles, but had a vertical gain of 1,000 feet in 1.5 miles.

Joshua Tree National Park


Well, on Tuesday March 15 we finally began our annual trek out of the deep southwest area and towards higher altitude and longitude climes. We were held up in Winterhaven CA for several days while we waited for some critical mail (a shipment of our new book, “Hawk and Red Fox-Modern Day Gypsies”, Volume Two).

(To order, go to-

http://www.nstarsolutions.com/store/home.php?provider=harleyhawk

Anyway, we were on our way, but really not on our way, because we had to go to downtown Yuma to get our toilet flush mechanism fixed, which had failed a couple of days previously. Fortunately it was a quick and easy fix and we were on our way before noon. Since we only had to cover about 150 miles, it was not an issue.

Our destination was Joshua Tree National Park, located in Eastern CA, near the Nevada border. This is one of three of what I will call desert national parks. They run from south to north in Eastern CA and are Joshua Tree, Mojave National Preserve and Death Valley National Park. They all begin to get rather hot this time of year, so one must get there usually by February to be guaranteed reasonable temperatures. Mojave is at a higher altitude, so it doesn’t get as hot as fast as the other two.

SAM_3190SAM_3189

Why were we at Joshua Tree? Several reasons-

  1. We had never been there before
  2. It was highly recommended by several friends
  3. It was a national park and therefore only $6 per night
  4. Red Fox needed to go to visit her family one more time before we headed East and J.T. is only 150 miles from them.

What we did not know is that there are very few camp sites that can accommodate our rig and we quickly had to modify our camping plan. This was easy, because as we approached the south entrance of J.T., we had noticed several rigs parked out in the desert, outside of the park. Inquiring inside the park, at the information center, we learned that this was Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land and had free camping.

***********************************************************************(Hawk and Karen’s two books are available at http://www.nstarsolutions.com/store/home.php?provider=harleyhawk)

***********************************************************************

So, we were soon back outside the park, driving into the BLM area. We elected to park as close to the macadam entry road as possible, since we knew we would be unloading the Harleys, and wanted as little driving on hard packed sand as was possible.

You might be asking why the camping here is free. The answer is simple. There are no facilities whatsoever. No restrooms, no electricity, no water, no dump stations. We weren’t worried though. Our generators were filled with gas and we had 3 more containers in the pickup. Our propane tanks were full and we took on 40 gallons of water in the park. We had dumped our sewer tanks when we left Winterhaven/Imperial Dam. Additionally we had another 20 gallons of water in containers in the truck. In short, we were good for about 10 to 12 days.

***********************************************************************(Hawk and Karen’s two books are available at http://www.nstarsolutions.com/store/home.php?provider=harleyhawk)

***********************************************************************

Soon we had everything set up, including the unloading of the Harleys and we were ready to explore the park and surrounding areas.

At this point, you may be wondering what a Joshua Tree is and why a park would be named for it.

Here is a brief wikipedia summary-

Yucca brevifolia is a plant species belonging to the genus Yucca. It is tree-like in habit, which is reflected in its common names: Joshua tree, yucca palm, tree yucca, and palm tree yucca.[2][3][4][5]

This monocotyledonous tree is native to southwestern North America in the states of California, Arizona, Utah, and Nevada, where it is confined mostly to the Mojave Desert between 400 and 1,800 m (1,300 and 5,900 ft) elevation. It thrives in the open grasslands of Queen Valley and Lost Horse Valley in Joshua Tree National Park. A dense Joshua tree forest also exists in Mojave National Preserve, in the area of Cima Dome.

Joshua trees are fast growers for the desert; new seedlings may grow at an average rate of 7.6 cm (3.0 in) per year in their first ten years, then only about 3.8 cm (1.5 in) per year.[15] The trunk consists of thousands of small fibers and lacks annual growth rings, making it difficult to determine the tree’s age. This tree has a top-heavy branch system, but also what has been described as a “deep and extensive” root system, with roots reaching up to 11 m (36 ft).[2] If it survives the rigors of the desert, it can live for hundreds of years; some specimens survive a thousand years. The tallest trees reach about 15 m (49 ft). New plants can grow from seed, but in some populations, new stems grow from underground rhizomes that spread out around the parent tree.

Google Joshua Trees if you want more extensive information.

Here is a picture of one-

Joshua_Tree_01

We took several video clips of them from the motorcycles and I will post those later.

Here are some photos of our campsite and the surrounding desert scenery. We are about 150 miles east of L.A. here and you would never know it.

We will be here for about 12 days. We arrived on the 15th of March and will leave right after Easter. In the next blog, we will show a ride we went on through the Joshua Tree Forest and a hike to the Fan Palm Oasis.

Jackass Invasion at South Mesa

Recently, we had an event here at South Mesa for which we have been waiting, but weren’t sure would occur. I was minding my own business at my trailer around midday when I heard a loud braying. Immediately I knew what was up-we had visitors right in camp, burro visitors, that is. IMG_20160308_163148_510

They had marched (or trotted) right into camp and were holding court at the restroom. I meandered over towards them in a cautious manner in case one of them was an alpha Jack male protecting his Jennies. There was a certain degree of aggressiveness towards the spectators, but they were mostly looking for a free food handout.

Soon there were about a dozen onlookers, including some youngsters and the burros allowed them to gently pet them. Red Fox arrived about that time, back from her daily walk and shot a picture of a Hawk with a Jackass.

IMG_20160308_164900_788

Soon the burros grew tired of the campground and headed out to the hills. If we had fed them they probably would have lingered, but once you feed them, they keep returning and will even butt their heads against your trailer to announce they want more food.

Our ride to Parker AZ and our visit to Randy’s Oasis Hamburger Emporium in Stone Cabin AZ

On Wednesday, March 9, we took a motorcycle ride to Parker AZ, which is about 100 miles north of us on Route 95. The weather was perfect (starting out around 60 and winding up around 80, with clear blue skies and the usual non-existent humidity). We carefully checked our gas because the first station is about 70 miles away. We did gas up in Quartzsite and then traveled on to Parker for lunch. Fish and Shrimp tacos with chips and salsa-delicious!IMG_20160309_131913_523-1

On the way back we drove into a place that we had passed many times but at which we had never stopped. It’s called Randy’s Oasis Hamburgers and is in the middle of nowhere on Route 95. Randy sells hamburgers, fries, deep fried mushrooms, cold drinks and home made ice cream treats, including Date Shakes to die for.

IMG_20160309_151810_776

We chatted Randy up, found out he was from Washington State and somewhere back East before that. We also chatted up a couple from Lancaster County in Pennsylvania who run a farm back there and spend their winters in AZ.

IMG_20160309_151802_161

(Red Fox holding court with Randy and the couple from PA)

We split a Date Shake, hung out for a while and then headed home. A fabulous day all around. Meanwhile, back home in New England, it was in the 70s, so we did not have the usual bragging rights, since many people were riding back there as well.

Meanwhile,we have started packing up and will be moving North and East  over the 2 1/2 months. Stay tuned for more adventures.
