Weekend Update

This weekend was the big Freebird concert out at Western Trails Ranch. What a concert! If you like Lynrd Skynrd, it was absolutely fabulous! (The link is there for those of you who don't know who Lynrd Skynrd is. Yes, I know some of you aren't old enough - you whippersnappers!)

A few people, who shall not be named, bailed on us, so we rode out alone. The weather was perfect, and once we got past all the traffic lights on Grand Ave., it was a great ride.

We ran into a few friends there, and got some interesting advice from Kimmy, the President and National Publisher at Biker Information Guide. She rode her Trike there, but didn't have her jacket, so she left pretty early, as it got cold as soon as the sun went down.

Here are some pics from our night:

Bikes in the parking lot.
More bikes in the parking lot.

Chess, anyone? I forgot to mention the life-size chess/checkers game. What fun!

Looks like you had a great weekend! The chess/checkers thing looks like it would be funny..I've never seen one in person.

Mike said...

Now that life sized chess-checkers things would be fun. They should use people dressed up as chess pieces.

Sounds like fun.

Hey! Where'd my comment go? I'm sorry I missed it, couldn't get out of kid duty - sorry! Hopefully I'm not one of those "who shall not be named" people, but I'll understand if I am! Sounds like I missed a good time! Next one, I'm there, and there's always plenty of opportunity for fun times with the Nelsons! Love Ya!

Only thing better than HAVING a great weekend, is SHARING a great weekend. Looks like a good time was had by all. I'm sure those who remained nameless had a regret or two. Thanks for sharing with the pics. Lady R.

Damn! Looks like I missed a hell of a party! I would have loved to see Kate in that group of bikes. She looks great in such social settings. And you have to love Skynyrd... I think it's in the rule book, otherwise they take away your biker license.
I am truly envious of you. Is it an Annual thing, like maybe next year?
I hope so.
Oh, and I'm sure you'll do great getting your license. Nobody belongs on back for too long.

Camron - yes it is a yearly thing...it's the beginning of AZ Bike Week. Last year they had Bad Company, this year Freebird. I'll send you the flyer for next year when it comes out! Would love to have you out here for this! It's a great time!
