Default Finding Everett Reuss, by the Outlaws

The geyser was no longer gushing - too many clueless visitors had dropped rocks in the shaft over the past 90 years, reducing it to a pathetic gurgle.

The sky was overcast, obscuring the ordinarily spectacular desert star show.

It was cold. There was a chilling breeze.

It was dark.

They were alone.

But soon a fire lit the barren site and provided warmth.

Like a beacon the Outlaws, veterans and newbies, rolled in on their trusty rides.

Shaking off the road dust they gathered to the flame and friendships. Eye contact was limited. The road ahead uncertain.

One thing for sure they knew - they didn't know.

Day 1 - Green River, Copper Globe Mine, an outlaw signature, windy camp, the smell of burnt powder, a cold night
Day 2 - Ancient rock art, crystal pockets, open vistas, strange subterranean creature homes, small towns in the off season, spectacular sunset, and and a warm fire fueled by hot burning native woods.
Day 3 - Switchbacks in a notch where a road would seem unimaginable, the last named mountain range in the US, bypassing a washout that would swallow a tank, the mighty Colorado easing into a dwindling Lake Powell, a dirt road into one of the most remote regions of the Lower 48, a pass named sunset at sunset, the search of an Outlaw camp at dark, a warm night in a narrow canyon bottom, a 35th birthday
Day 4 - Finding the Outlaw signature almost by chance, warmer sun, being welcomed back to civilization by a cheeseburger and fries, a long drive across snowy mountain passes to a hot shower and warm bed.

Thank you to everyone who was there and to those entertained from afar by our tales.

Now lets hear from the Wild Bunch.
