I came near to crying for missing.
What a smart dinner it is!
I have never eaten this dishes.
Ingredients of Sloppy Joe were almost leftover.
And it tasted very good!
I have to confess that I bought some cans of Sloppy Joe before we were on board at San Francisco.
We built a camping fire and gather some pinecorns.
Frank taught us when pine corns are in fire, it will pop and explode.
We wanted to see corns popping.
When we were waiting for Frank and Draig, a lady came near to us and asked some quistion about corns.
She was kind enough to give us her homemade zucchini cake. It was delisious. This is the first time for my son to eat zucchini.
We got another T-shirts at special discount, 25%.
This is the smart way to get some souvenir.
Her husband is a scholar and sometimes he was transferred to Japan as an exchange scholar.

At first we couldn't get any fish, after we landed an island, we got some fishes.
I caught almost ten Basses, while my son had some troubles about fishing rod, such as tangling...
He was frustrated about what he did himself.
I advised him to cast his fishing rod from here.
At the very last time,
he could a beautiful rainbow trout.
He was happy and relieved to get it.
We went back to our base camp.
Frank taught my son how to clean fish.
Frakn said to my son, "This fish is yours and you have to clean it by yourself. "
My son grabed a knife and tried to cut his fish.
I have never seen him washing his hands but he uses the timer to know what time is the best to cook.
My son ate a green papper.
I have never seen him eating a green pappers.
I was surprised to see my boy growing up step by step.
After this experience, my son has tried to cook at home.
"Next time I will do cooking for Craig." he said.
Frank said to me, "Try! Your turn."
We visited Frank and Craig and Jay. They were camping in order to find gold mine at Black Hills.
We had a chance to drive ATVs. It was fun.
Frank has a dream to find a gold mine in the near future.We had driven ATV and dirt bike around the Black Hills.
Pat and Pennie and Ann have to go to another campoing spot.
I wanted to talk a lot.
I had to think of reunion as a wonderful thing.
We will meet again somewhere in the U.S.
I am sure that future riders will grow up soon.
This is Ann. She is a frog character collecter. That's why my mother makes it a rule to drop in at anystore to look for frogs. See you and ride again! Now my mother will start to find some again soon.
I followed him to see some nice bikes.
Riding with Pat is the beginning of these experiences. It gave me another world. I felt relaxed as I followed Pat's bike.
At Sturgis, every time Pat saw a T&A, he gave me a sign and smile. It made me feel comfortable. And I took another shot for him.
I followed this track.
Soon we left the park for Sturgis.
We headed up to the east, Sturgis, Harley riders paradise.
We would meet some friends there.
Another 500 miles ride.
We didn't visit any sightseeing spot just went straight to the east.
First my son waved riders but as we got closer to Sturgis, we saw more riders.
At Sundance, we had to stop to fill gas up.
Now we were surrounded by many riders.
My son was so scary that he couldn't get off the bike and just hold me tight.
As for him, we were among hells angels.
