    Greetings from Gillette

    Is it July yet??? Who said Gillette is Hot??? Trying to head for Moab after a planning visit to Gillette, and woke up to this. Deb and Stan even delayed heading back to Colorado Springs until the thaw (July??) 30 degrees with 30 mph winds


    They may be good in Dirt, but Deb's GS is waiting to thaw.



    See you in July!!

    Nicer in Minnesota, Karol!

    No snow here, but it's a heckuva lot warmer and less windy. Rain will be rolling in this afternoon, though. By the time you get back here, it will be full out spring...kinda.

    Ride safe!

    You can make anyplace a winter wonderland just by showing up.

    Talking May snow anytime...

    When we were in Gillette for the Rally planning meeting/Board meeting last October it snowed on Saturday night. Departed for Illinois Sunday AM with temp at 34 degrees and 3 inches of snow on the ground. Looked just like your pictures.

    Better bring the "All Season" gear come rally time!

    first 125 miles of the ride temps ranged from 34 to a high of 38. After Casper it hit the high 40's and once or twice 50!! Up in elevation......down in temp.......etc.... Now in Moab and it's 85
    go figure!
