Jawbone Canyon

This weekend Richie and all of his Jawbone peeps went down to Jawbone Canyon for some off-roading. I had decided to stay back since We would leave Friday afternoon and I would have to return Saturday evening, and I didn't feel like taking the 2 and 1/2 - 3 hour drive just for 24 hours...
Well... Friday night after Richie arrived in Jawbone and everyone else too, I receive a phone call from him at TEN THIRTY PM!!!!
Richie: "Hey!!! Get in the car and drive down! Everyones here, all the ladies and dogs too!!!"
Liz: "huh??? its 10:30pm!!! I just took my benedryl too... I'm falling asleep... I don't wanna drive out there just to drive back..."
Richie: "Just load up the dogs and drive out here!"
Liz: (*scratching her head* wondering if he heard me just a second ago) "huh???"
Richie: "C'mon, we would drive 2 hours to your moms in the middle of the night, why not drive here"
Liz: (*thinking*, did it take 2 hours to get to my moms??? no I think it took an hour and a half/ does it take 2 hours to get to jawbone or does it take 2 1/2 -3 hours?) "Oh geeze... okay ill be there in a few..."
"hhhhhhhhhhhh" that was me sighing...

So I drove down to Jawbone Canyon! Maggie, Elton, Richie and I had a wonderful time off roading. Unfortunately we didn't take any pics cus we never pul out our phones in the dirt. (no reception in the camp spot, only on the main road). Maggie had a good time for her first trip! I layed a blanket on the floor boards of the Rhino, and she loved laying down there, Elton as usual had to sit on my lap with his face tucked into my armpit to block the wind from his face! He's sooooo cute!!!

I had tears in my eyes to see that my father-in-law's pic is still up in the store with everyones well wishes on it! It's been 3 years since he passed and I didn't know if it would still be up, so that was nice to see.

Here's a link to the Jawbone Canyon Store if you wanna see what Jawbone is all about:

I love this place! Its like a home away form home, just because when your there, everyone else there, even if you don't know them, seems to be like family. You see someone having troubles with their bike on a trail you put their bike in the back of the Rhino and you drive them back to their camp. You run out of gas and some stranger stops to give you some from his can. You have a spill on some hill and someone in the nearest camp runs up to help you get your bike up! I love-love-love the people there, not to mention the B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L scenery. Ahhh to die for!!!
Anyways, have a wonderful Memorial Day everybody!!! Thank you to all the men and women out there that have dedicated their lives to give me the freedom to drive down to Jawbone whenever I want!!!
