Crazy Horse Two

We had such a good time the first  day we went back for more.

When we left we took needles high way back home. That took

longer then I thought because I only had 1/4 tank of fuel.

So when it said we had 10 miles to go and my Fuel gauge

was dining I didn’t know if we were going to make it.

If you know the needles high way the last ten miles  is five up hill

five down with all the switch backs it seem a lot further.So hang on

and lets go for a ride.I have a video of the blasting but couldn’t

figure  it out put on the blog.
