Travels with the Original Easyrider®

My 71st (ugh) b'day road trip of a lifetime

We were in Nevada in 2016 and 2018.

These images were made with my Nikon D810 camera and my
Zeiss Planar T* 50mm F/1.4 ZF.2 manual focus Lens.

So we're in the middle of nowhere taking pictures. We're at the very
end of a huge, dirt parking lot where there is some sort of a general
store. The place doesn't look open or even still in business.

So I'm just about done taking pictures and I see this guy headed my way.
Uh-oh... this looks like trouble my internal radar tells me. I usually
like to have Julie between me and any dipwads we run into since she's a
lot better dealing with them than I am. But, she's off doing her Ansel
Adams imitation so I'm on my own.

Turns out, this guy is the Father of the kid on a bicycle we passed a few
miles back. He, the Father, is writing a book on how people spend their
retirement years. The kid is cycling from Virginia to SFO and the
Father flew in to Nevada to visit with him while he (the kid) is on his

So he (the Father) decides to meet him i(the kid) in Majors Place, Nevada....
literally in the middle of nowhere. We had only planned on spending 5 minutes
to take pictures but wound up killing over a half hour chatting with this fellow
before his kid finally showed up. You just never know who you're going
to run into out in the boondocks...
