Eric and I left work a bit early to go on a Friday motorcycle ride. I decided to mix it up and take him down to the Graffiti Wall just south of the arch. Eric has never been here before, to it was an extra special treat for him. This is just a small collection of photos from our ride!
On Friday 9/29/2017, Eric and I set out on the 5 Corners of Missouri adventure. Its a trip I dreamed up after reading about other motorcycle adventures. The plan was to ride around the state of Missouri and visit the roads that were closest to the corners of the state. I came up with 5 corners because The northeast corner has a more eastern and a more northern area. If I got them both, I would have no doubt that I covered them all. Here are a few photos of the trip and I’ll include the YouTube video once it finishes uploading.
If you’re curious where we went, download HoganTracks.
Northeast corner, more east.

Northeast corner, more north.
Quick stop in Overland Park, Kansas to say hi to my dad.
Can’t resist a sign for Highway 69!

I finally got around to installing the solar panels at Waterfall. Eric met me out there to supervise the install. I got all of the panels mounted before he showed up. Then it was a matter of organizing the cables based on what we had and plugging it all in, SUCCESS!
It needs to be cleaned up, but I have to go home and order some longer cables first.
We’re working on a solar system for waterfall so we can be off the grid. Eric came out with me today to install the larger batteries. We had to relocate them since there wasn’t room where the old one was. He brought out the soldering iron to make sure they last.
The batteries are installed and the power is on and working. We’ll have to come back another day and get the solar panels complete… Somebody forgot to bring drill bits 🙁
