... for ages to in the car park yesterday. Although. the previous day he had decided he was not going to ride the DH he had decided he would. Good on ya !!
The first couple of miles were slippery but had traction; then we came to the roadworks. Had to wait about 20 mins for the pilot car, let all the cars and trucks go first them we went. Dug up road, deep tracks & mud and slippery. Front & rear wheels all over ...

This is not the name of the cabin/museum in which we viewed the lights from but it's the only thing that came up with being connected to wifi.
So I need to see if the museum in the town of wiseman comes up.
I'm not going to try and describe what I witnessed last night yet because, right now we our on the tour bus and I want to enjoy the view BUT I did wonder whether or not the misfit
