Day 39 - Zion National Park, UT

I just noticed that Aerostitch used the picture that Dom took of me at Garden of the Gods last November on the cover of their catalog. Not having a paper copy of their catalog handy, this is a screen grab from the pdf copy. 

Today was going to be our first attempt at a Walmart stay but the manager told us that the city passed an ordinance prohibiting overnight parking. Oh well, scratch that one off of the list. We did pick up groceries and planned our next move.

Our next reserved campground was at Zion River Resort for Wednesday through Friday. I called them to see if I could change it to Tuesday through Thursday. They shuffled a few reservations and told us to come on over. Now we just need to plan to boondock over the weekend. Our next reservation is for Sunday outside of Bryce Canyon. Tomorrow I have an audio conference but we plan on driving Hwy 9 through the park. On Thursday, we are taking the campground shuttle to the park entrance and taking the NP shuttle. I'm not sure of the purpose of the NP shuttle if you are allowed to drive through the park. Maybe because there wouldn't be any parking. We'll find out tomorrow...

  1. Whoa, I look fat. I'm really trying to loose it. Yes, Richard is famous! Only a part of him on the cover-should have been all of him. Handsome guy. Now he's one who has been loosing weight.......

  3. You are a fashion model ;-) Well, I am not surprised. Aerostich makes stuff for real motorcyclists, and what would be better than using the real ones to sell their product.

    1. A friend who rode his 49cc Ruckus to Prudhoe Bay got on the cover a few years back. Not a tiny picture but the whole cover. Plus his Aerostitch gear was so worn and faded that they replaced it.

  4. Busy, busy. How very cool that Aerostich used Dom's photo of you. I don't think we've received ours in the mail yet but I'll keep a look out.

    1. I was surprised to see it. I hadn't heard anything for months after I replied that Dom was the owner of the photo.

  5. So cool that you're on the cover! I hope you enjoyed Zion! You know by now, there is a whole section of the park you cannot drive to, but those shuttles really cut down on traffic and parking hassles. Bryce has them too.
