The twisting roads of the Ozark Mountains bring scooter riders back to Eureka Springs for STO year after year. There are lots of curves, beautiful scenery, and many of these roads have very little traffic.

I am so lucky to be able to live among these twisties.   Maybe these "behind the handlebars" shots can help you remember the great views (and skies!) we all shared on our rides at STO this year.    I'll post a link to my regular camera shots later.

Tressa: Welcome to the forum, Lloyd. Dec 4, 2014 21:47:53 GMT -6
jim: Whoo hoo! I'm first tonight! I hope everyone had good week. We finished up the grand kids presents this week so I am officially done with shopping. Dec 8, 2014 19:37:51 GMT -6
Tressa: Hi Jim. We started our Christmas shopping today. Still have a few gifts to get, but we're almost there. Dec 8, 2014 20:28:55 GMT -6
jim: It's a nice feeling to finally be getting finished with something, this year the guys will have Estes rockets to launch and the girls will have (beauty products) to mess with. Dec 8, 2014 20:33:32 GMT -6
Tressa: We just have one granddaughter, aged 13! Dec 8, 2014 20:34:58 GMT -6
Tressa: She had a growth spurt and was running short on jeans that fit, so we gave her some of her Christmas early. Dec 8, 2014 20:36:04 GMT -6
jim: They grow up so quick. Dec 8, 2014 20:41:35 GMT -6
Tressa: And the older they get, the harder they are to shop for. Dec 8, 2014 20:44:29 GMT -6
jim: For sure, sometimes I think that cash or cards is the way to go. Still if at all possible we try to take the grands them selves shopping for their birthdays at least and spend the afternoon with them and let them pick a gift or gifts within a preset price Dec 8, 2014 20:46:55 GMT -6
jim: OK true confessions time. I once found a rat at work and brought it home for the grandkids, the granddaughter adopted it and it's her best buddy she named it gizmo. It was a pet that had escaped it's owners and I found it running around in front. Dec 8, 2014 20:50:15 GMT -6
Tressa: Good way to do it. Dec 8, 2014 20:50:49 GMT -6
jim: The Rat was a special breed and very recognizable so it wasn't just a field rat or anything. it's been a year now and all is well. Dec 8, 2014 20:51:32 GMT -6
Tressa: Your first post about the rat didn't show up until after the last one. Had to refresh to see the first post about the rat and see what you were writing about. Dec 8, 2014 20:56:02 GMT -6
Tressa: My daughter had a couple of hamsters as pets when she was growing up, but we haven't had any rats. Dec 8, 2014 20:57:12 GMT -6
jim: So what is the (worst) present you have ever given? And the rat is pretty smart even comes when called by name... Dec 8, 2014 20:57:56 GMT -6
Tressa: It's been a long day, so I'll say g'night now. Have good evening, and a good week. Dec 8, 2014 20:59:08 GMT -6
