Large rock that Ben was on

The other two gentlemen could not kneel in the area for the photos

That and a borrowed shirt and I was ready to go.

The bike was not as ready. It was painted a custom mix color and it didn't come out quite right but it would be fine for the catalog shoot. I went to find it and it wasn't where I left it. I searched it down and found it in the paint shop and it had already begun to be stripped to be repainted. I walked in to find of the the paint guys scraping it down with a blade and just about came out of my skin. But it was only stripped on the one side so we could hold it at just the right angle and it looked fine.

The 3 of us then went across the street where there was a cool rock wall next to the river that we could use as a backdrop. We get there and the photographer gets us where he wants us for the best light and we all line up and something is wrong. Kelly and I all pretty tall - I'm 6'4" and Kelly must be at least 6'3" and Ben is not. With all all posed there he looked small. So we grabbed a big rock for him to stand on and we had our shot.

Glamorous stuff this life as a f-builder.

So I really do wonder what the old gang is doing. I think most have moved on and would love to know what they are doing.
